Hi, I'm trying to make newer documents score higher in my search results, similar to this post How to prioritize more recent content? but I'm trying to do it in App Search. I added a proximity boost on the date field centered on "now" but this doesn't seem to make much difference in my results. I still have a document from 1996 scoring above a document from 2021, and even with the boost impact set to 10 I can't get the 2021 document above the 1996 document.
I think I need to make the weight of the date field higher - how do I do this? Or is there a better way to go about getting recent documents to the top of search queries?
