The guidance articles contain links to additional documentation and examples.

As we continue to improve IntelliSense experiences, the behavior of some functionality will change. For example, when composing a query, the auto suggestion feature will offer all relevant operators by alphabetical order. These changes are intended to make the flow more aligned among different functions and operators.
