I've got an approx. 20 year old, 10" Companion table saw from Sears with, what the Owner's Manual describes as, a "plate cover" on the back. It's plenty wide for a vacuum hose. The manual suggests attaching a vacuum to the "dust port", but doesn't identify one on the saw. I've found nothing else about it. I'm wondering if it's designed for a vacuum connection and if there's a standard flange that I can buy, or do I just have to make my own.
To make the shop vac more effective, you might need to build a bottom for your saw so that the vac is getting more dust to the port. The shop vac will work better if it has a confined space to deal with.
