What is the problem or opportunity?[edit]

For the needs of a Structured Tasks project, we need to be able to filter out articles that have recommendations assigned to them. Currently we allow for two types of recommendations, that are calculated beforehand and assigned to articles - link and image. In both cases, results are calculated periodically.

What does the future look like if this is achieved?[edit]

Ability to filter the results will allow a flexible display of articles that can be combined with other criteria - like full-text search or category.

What happens if we do nothing?[edit]

Static list of articles can still be displayed without the help - but that will greatly reduce the usability of the solution.


Value Objective or Value it Supports and how

Current background[edit]

Assumptions and requirements
The actual recommendations are not necessary for the search process
Articles with recommendations should be marked as such and there should be a way to clear this mark
It should be possible to do a full-text, or filtered search with inclusion of recommendations available filter
