Matchmaking sorting on Marketplace
Marketplace
August 31, 2022

When this setting is ON, the default sorting of the Marketplace (Exhibitors and Products) is by Matchmaking results, depending on the user’s interests. The results are still sorted by MM order when using search and filters. Search weight is disabled for logged-in users.

Alternative behaviour (Setting OFF and Setting ON but user is logged out): results are presented in alphabetical order with search weight applied.
