Coveo in a Salesforce Napili template

In my Napili template that I'm building out - I currently have the standard, OOTB search bar, in the standard OOTB Napili header. If I type a search in there it displays the results in my Coveo search page that I created - is that right? And is it using the indexing in my Salesforce cloud?

The OOTB Search bar in the Napili Template Header does not provide Coveo Results, You have to add a Search component in the body of the template to be able to use coveo's search within the community as described here https://onlinehelp.coveo.com/en/cloud/addingalightningcoveocomponentwiththesalesforcecommunity_builder.htm

Thanks @gminero - appreciate the quick reply! So in my search page I have added the Coveo lightning Search component, is that what you mean? I haven't added the standard salesforce results component, just the Coveo one.

Thanks Nick

Once you have added the component, you should be able to search using the header search bar, and should see the highlighted results returned by Coveo. I have added a screenshot for reference purposes.

This is excellent - literally just made my life 98% easier! I was thinking I needed a different search box, but it seems that the Coveo search component takes whatever the search term was and returns results from it's index. Awesome!

Thanks for the help @gminero
