Coming Soon! GEBestBetAdder GUI for SharePoint 2013, 2016 and SharePoint Online

Things have been very busy at the Geoff front. Work on the GUI version of GEBestBetAdder is being finalised. This tool will help you migrate and manage Best Bets from SharePoint 2010 enabling you to migrate to Promoted Results in SharePoint 2013 and beyond, including just some of the following features:

  • Create Query Rules and Promoted Results into SharePoint 2013 and beyond from SharePoint 2010 Best Bets and Keywords
  • Add, Edit and Delete custom Query Rules and Promoted Results without having to access SharePoint
  • Export Query Rules, Promoted Results to Excel and XML formats
  • Manage existing Query Rules on a site by site basis

The tool has been long in the making and has been great fun to build – its absolutely crammed with features. The tool will be made available on a trial basis very soon, am aiming for release by end of August 2019. It will even include the ability to migrate Query Rules to/from on-premise to Office 365. If you are interested please contact me and I’ll add you on the trial list.
