Coveo for Sitecore New Features
Coveo for Sitecore developers are constantly looking for ways to make the product more powerful and simpler to use. This page presents the main new features and enhancements added over time.
New processor to filter HTML content when indexing pages
We added a new processor to clean the content of HTML pages before sending it to the index, based on CSS simple selectors.
Rebranding of Coveo for Sitecore to reflect the new Coveo visual identity
The February 2021 release of Coveo for Sitecore brings a completely rebranded package to reflect the new Coveo visual identity.
Selecting a Deployment Region When Creating a Coveo Organization
In the September 2020 release of Coveo for Sitecore, we added the ability to link your Sitecore instance to a Coveo organization in any available deployment region.
We now take data residency support one step further by letting users create a Coveo organization in any available region (and automatically linking to it) directly from the Command Center. Simple!
Creating Test Organizations From Coveo for Sitecore
A test organization is the ideal organization type for local development environments. You can now create a test organization directly in Coveo for Sitecore, whether during Coveo for Sitecore activation or later, using the Command Center.
Bypassing the Coveo for Sitecore Proxy
Coveo now provides an option in the Command Center to bypass the Coveo for Sitecore proxy for search and analytics calls to the Coveo Platform. Among other advantages, this can increase search speeds and reduce costs when using Sitecore on Azure, or another hosting platform.
Coveo now lets you deploy your organizations to multiple regions (see Multi-Region Deployments).
With the latest version of Coveo for Sitecore, you can link your Sitecore instance to any of your Coveo organizations, wherever these are deployed, so that you may reduce query times.
Sitecore 10.0 and SXA 10.0 Support
Coveo now supports Sitecore 10.0 and SXA 10.0!

Editing Crawler Properties in the Command Center
As with many other Sitecore configurations, editing index crawler properties through configuration files can be a tedious and error-prone process. As part of our ongoing efforts to simplify configuration changes through new Command Center features, we unveil today our content crawler properties editing module.

customData[context_listing] values in usage analytics calls.
Hosted Search Pages
Many businesses and organizations discover Coveo through its Coveo Platform, where they may create an organization, test indexing, and build a search page using the GUI editor. But, until now, there has been no way to integrate a Coveo Platform search page into a Sitecore-powered website.
Coveo for Sitecore now has a Coveo Hosted Search Page rendering which, when added in the Sitecore Experience Editor, pulls the code from the selected Coveo Platform search page and injects it into the current Sitecore page.

Dynamic Navigation Experience
Dynamic Navigation Experience (DNE) is now supported in Coveo for Sitecore!
DNE requires special facets (i.e., Dynamic facets) that are “smarter” than the base facets that were already available in Coveo for Sitecore. A facet manager is also needed for the reordering of these dynamic facets. Hence, dynamic versions of the Coveo Category Facet (named the Coveo Dynamic Hierarchical Facet) and Coveo Facet renderings are now available, as well as dedicated dynamic range facet renderings for numeric, date, and distance fields.
