New support for custom verticals in Microsoft Search allows you to customize out of the box verticals for Microsoft Search and add new verticals based on SharePoint content.

MC294745: Create and manage verticals in Microsoft Search

When this will happen

This feature will begin rolling out to Targeted Release (select users) beginning in late November 2021.

We expect the Standard Release rollout to begin in early January 2022 and we expect that rollout to be completed by late January 2022.

How this will affect your organization

You will be able to modify search verticals(tabs on top of search result page) and add new verticals with SharePoint content for your tenant search page.

These new customization capabilities will be accessed in the Search & intelligence admin center under the Customizations tab.

What you need to do to prepare

Review Customize the search results page (see additional information) if you wish to create custom search verticals.

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
