Finding what you want quickly and easily is the cornerstone of a successful marketplace, and improving this experience was one of our 2014 Roadmap themes. Faceted search, or the ability to filter down your search results, is a key and long-awaited component of a better discovery experience. Today, were pleased to announce that it has made its debut on Envato Market and will be fully rolled out across the sites over the next two days.
Earlier this year, we invited our community to collaborate with us during the idea gathering phase of the project. We used Trello to capture and discuss suggestions for faceted search. Although the majority of these suggestions is yet to be implemented, this helped us develop a big picture understanding of all the requirements and better plan our approach to this project. More on this later.
