Developer and Administrator Experience

Every search experience has its own unique requirements, target audience, and look and feel. That's why we give you full control to make the experience truly yours. We offer countless tools and resources to help customize and optimize every detail along the way. Whether you're an administrator without a coding background or a full stack developer, we've curated a Yext platform experience that will suit you perfectly.

Low-Code to Pro-Code

You do not need to be a software developer to build or manage an incredible search experience with Yext. But you can be! We offer a range of tools and resources that cater to both low-code administrators and coding experts. For example, our point-and-click configuration interface allows administrators to modify the levers in the backend that affect search results. On the other hand, these same settings can be configured with JSON in our developer console.

Test Search

We provide administrators a full screen tool to test queries and identify opportunities for improvement in their search experiences without leaving the platform. In our test search you can see direct answers and featured snippets, view and copy raw API requests and responses, display customized entity previews, review test searches in your search log, and more!

Experience Training

Experience Training provides the opportunity to manually tweak the Algorithm's results if you ever notice a query that needs improvement. With your feedback on specific search terms, you can fix that query instantly and help Yext's AI Search improve the relevancy of its predictions over time.
