Each Best Bet listed on the Best Bets page provides an action menu with commands for acting on a selected Best Bet or Best-Bet group. As usual in SharePoint, the action menu appears when you hover the mouse pointer over the Best-Bet or group title; the name then acts like a drop-down list with some combination of the commands summarized below.
|This entry appears for Best Bets that have been inherited and not (yet) customized. Select this entry to capture the currently inherited settings and break the inheritance, which means that changes made for this Best Bet higher up in the hierarchy will no longer affect it at the current level or below. This entry will also bring you to the page for configuring the selected Best Bet.|
|This entry appears for Best Bets that are either defined or customized at the current level. Select this to open the page for configuring the selected Best Bet.|
|This entry appears for Best Bet groups. Select this to open the page for configuring the selected Best Bet group.|
|Select this entry to create a new Best Bet that initially has the same settings as the selected one. This opens the Copy Best Bet page, which enables you to configure the new copy (these settings are the same as those offered when you edit or create a new Best Bet). You must at least assign a new and unique ID to the new copy.|
|In result lists where more than one Best Bet is triggered, Best Bets will be listed in the same order as they are shown on the Best Bets page. Best Bets can also be divided into several groups, which are likewise shown in the order indicated here. To rearrange the Best Bets within a given Best Bet group, click on a target Best Bet and select one of these entries. To move a group, click on a target group and select one of these entries. Note that non-customized, inherited Best Bets cannot be moved, though customized and/or locally defined Best Bets can be moved between them.|
| If you would like to disable the Best Bet temporarily, or suppress it for just a few branches of your hierarchy, select its Hide Best Bet entry (this entry is only active for Best Bets that are not currently hidden). Hidden Best Bets will show “(Hidden)” after their name on the Best Bets page (e.g., “Author (Hidden)”) and will also show grayed icons in the Inherited column. Hidden Best Bets will not appear to users at the level at which they are marked as hidden, nor will they appear for any of the sites below that branch of the hierarchy (including sites for which a newly hidden Best Bet previously had local overrides). Hidden Best Bets will furthermore not appear to administrators on the Best Bets page for any of the sites below the level at which a given Best Bet was hidden.
To reactivate a hidden Best Bet, find the site level at which the Best Bet is marked as hidden, open its action menu and select the Show Best Bet entry (this entry is only active for Best Bets that are currently hidden). The Best Bet will once again be visible to all users and administrators at that level and below. If local overrides existed for a lower-level Best Bet before it was hidden, then those overrides will be reinstated when the Best Bet is again set to be shown.
|This entry appears for customized, inherited Best Bets. Select this entry to discard local overrides and re-instate inheritance, which means that this Best Bet will continue to track configuration changes made to its parent.|
|This entry appears for customized, inherited Best Bet groups. Select this entry to discard local overrides and re-instate inheritance, which means that this Best Bet group will continue to track configuration changes made to its parent.|
|This entry appears only for Best Bets and Best Bet groups that are defined at the current level. Select it to delete the selected Best Bet or group. Note that if the deleted Best Bet or Best Bet group has been customized at a child level, then that Best Bet will remain at that child level and will no longer be marked as inherited. Note also that when you delete a group, all of the Best Bets belonging to that group at the current site level will also be deleted, though the group may still exist at lower levels if it has been customized with extra Best Bets there..|
