Coveo component AnalyticsSuggestions

Coveo AnalyticsSuggestions Component (CoveoAnalyticsSuggestions)

The AnalyticsSuggestion component provides query suggestions based on the queries that a Coveo Analytics service most commonly logs.

This component orders possible query suggestions by their respective number of successful item views, thus prioritizing the most relevant query suggestions. Consequently, when better options are available, this component does not suggest queries resulting in no clicks from users or requiring refinements.

The query suggestions appear in the Omnibox Component. The AnalyticsSuggestion component strongly relates to the Analytics component. While a user is typing in a query box, the AnalyticsSuggestion component allows them to see and select the most commonly used and relevant queries.


This component is exposed for legacy reasons. If possible, you should avoid using this component. Instead, you should use the Omnibox enableQuerySuggestAddon option.
