Users or engineers may be unsure of how to obtain the Smart Connector itself, as they are not generally available for download from the Exchange Download Center or the Smart Connector Forum on the Community.

SBO/EBO and general integration projects
Smart Connectors are not freely available and will require a license obtaining in order to download and use them. As Smart Connectors can be developed by a number of teams around the world that are not part of R&D, these teams will define the costs and requirements for using their software.
A Product Announcement PA-00546 is available that details the concept and use of Smart Connectors. To order the Smart Connector Framework for a project, use part number: SXWSWSCDL100001 Then go to the Smart Connector Server licensing portal to obtain your required license for the specific Smart Connector you require. The URL for the License Portal is: https://www.smartconnectorserver.com/
A login is required for this portal which can can be obtained through the "Sign Up" button. Once logged in the user may browse through the available Smart Connectors and request to download a license.
For support information on Smart Connectors, see the article "Support route for Smart Connector Framework issues".

There are 2 areas I would suggest that could be improved:
The first is the search engine. This has limited flexibility / functionality compared to other internet searches making it often difficult to find the information required.
There are the limited search modifiers that allow the +, - and " " to be used, but there are no other logic options like the AND functionality. Using the + will act as a logical OR and the - acts as a NOT.
The second area is a follow-up to Adi's post, item #3 above. "Everything is treated as a question". It would be good to define different post types e.g. questions, whitepapers, documents, General information / statements, announcements etc.
Maybe use different icons for the different types.
An improved search would also allow users to search on the different post types. e.g to find new questions, new announcements etc.
