Based on an “If This Then That” logic, Rules let you make precise modifications to your Search & Discovery experience.

Algolia offers unlimited space to define your own set of rules, leveraging various strategies applied in any situation:

  • Rules can be triggered by specific search terms (and automatically extended to its synonyms) or applied without any user query needed.

  • Rules can take into account various contextual elements (device used, category page, geolocation).

  • Rules can be limited to a specific time-range or be “always on”.
