# Curation

While Typesense makes it really easy and intuitive to deliver great search results, sometimes you might want to promote certain documents over others. Or, you might want to exclude certain documents from a query's result set.

Using overrides, you can include or exclude specific documents for a given query.

# Create or update an override

In the following example, we are overriding the search results by placing the documents with ids 422 and 54 in the first and second positions respectively via the includes condition. Additionally, we're ensuring that the document with id 287 is not returned at all via the excludes condition. You need to specify only one of exclude or include.

Note how we are applying these overrides to an exact match of the query apple. Instead, if we want to match all queries that contained the word apple, we will use the contains match instead.
