Working24 has a powerful search engine under its hood. Search for messages using the search bar at the top of the screen.
stream:design has:link is:starred new logo
Searches for messages in
#design that have a link, that you starred, and that have the words
The permalink for that search (web only) will look something like
As you start typing, Working24 app will suggest possible operator completions. Operators can be used with keywords, or on their own. For example,
stream:design logowill search for the word
stream:designwill navigate to
Here is the full list of search operators.
stream:design: Search within the stream
stream:design topic:emoji+picker: Search within the topic

sender:me: Search sent messages.

Working24’s model allows access to the full history of public streams and , including messages sent before you joined the stream (or organization) or those sent to public streams you are not subscribed to.
By default, Working24 app searches messages in your history, i.e. the messages you actually received. This avoids cluttering search results with irrelevant messages from public streams you’re not interested in.
If you’d like to instead search the organization’s shared history, any query using the
streams: operators will search all messages that you have access to in the selected stream(s). For example:
streams:public keywordsearches for
keywordin all public streams in the organization.
streams:public sender:firstname.lastname@example.org for all messages sent by the user to any public stream.
Most searches consist of a list of operators followed by a list of keywords.
new logo: Search for messages with both
"new logo": Search for messages with the phrase
Working24 app does some basic stemming, so
wave will match
waving. Keywords are case-insensitive, so
wave will also match
Emoji are included in searches, so if you search for
octopus it will include messages with .
Note that Working24 app ignores common words like
the, and about 100 others. A quirk in Working24’s current implementation means that if all of your keywords are ignored, we’ll return 0 search results.
