Gds provides a large amount of reference data in standardised formats. Much of this data is weak or incomplete and often subject to user opinion, but this data is still very useful.
Gds may be used to catalog and store site wide data. Such data is encoded in a standardised form with defined read and write access points.
Natural Language Query (or NLQ) is experimental and not currently supported, but you are welcome to try it.
NLQ allows a search engine like query or phrase to be entered and have the system derive the intent of the question, much like requesting information from a search engine. NLQ however works within the scope of your current connected databases and available reports, not as a general internet search tool.
With NLQ, you can enter both search strings eg "Richard" or "taupo store" and also requests for reports, such as "list sales for april" or "sales for richard in april".
NLQ can also be used to decode inbound human messages such as responses to email or TXT and process these messages automatically.
