What Are Display Fields?

The content of a display field appears in the search results. As a Coveo administrator, using the Interface Editor you can quickly add display fields to search results to provide additional information and help users identify documents that they are looking for (see Adding Display Fields).

Display fields typically appear in a smaller font at the end of the search result but before the link elements.

Example: In a search interface for a CRM system like Salesforce, you can set the sfcompetition field as a display field to include the competitive information in the search result. A user can see the competitors identified for a sales opportunity without having to open the search result.

The sfcompetition display field with the Competition label lists the identified competitors for this opportunity.
