User Interface Elements Hiding Complex Queries

You can transparently use or see behind the scene complex queries with the following Coveo user interface elements.

Facets
Facets are the good examples of hidden complex queries generated using an easy to use user interface. When you click an element in a facet, a corresponding field query is generated (see Refining Search Results Using Facets).
Example: In the Type facet, clicking the Excel element is equivalent to adding the field expression @sysfiletype=="xls" to your query.

Advanced Search Page
In the default web search interfaces, the optional Advanced Search link opens the Advanced Search page where you can intuitively create more sophisticated queries without having to type field query codes (see Using the Advanced Search Page).
Example: In the Document Properties tab or the Advanced Search page, selecting the options illustrated in the following figure is equivalent to typing the following field query: @sysfiletype=xls @syssize>=10240 @syslanguage==English @systitle=Funding.

Query Link Icon
The optional query link icon (Query Link icon) available at the right end of the results title bar, is useful to open a dialog where you can see the complete query sent to the Coveo server. You can discover behind the scene field queries added to the keywords that you typed in the search box (see Viewing the Complete Underlying Query).
