Search modifiers to narrow down results

Search modifiers to narrow down results

Search modifiers can be used in 2 filters - All and Messages to narrow down your search results. 
  • from: The results containing the search term said by that specific user will be listed.
  • to: The results containing the search term said to that specific user by anyone in the common chats between the both of you will be listed. 
    ​Type and select the filter from: or to: > then enter the user's name and select the right user > then type in your search term. 
  • in: Search for a specific term in a chat or channel. 
    ​Type and select the filter in: > then type the chat name and select it > then type in your search term. 
  • before: To search before a particular date
  • after: To search after a particular date
  • on: To search on a particular date
    Type and select a time filter (before: / after: / on:), then choose from the given options or pick your day in the calendar. Once the day is selected, you can give a search term and all the results containing the search term that meets your filter will be displayed. 
  • hasfile: To search for files. 
    Type and select the filter hasfile: > select any one suggestion (png, gif, jpeg, doc) > then narrow down the search by typing a file name.     

  • haslink: To search for links
    Type and select haslink: > then type the term and give enter. The results having that particular term in the links will be displayed. 

Combine filters

You can combine the filters and search to narrow down results. A few examples, 

  1. <from: username> <in: channel> <haslink: name> 
    from: Scott Fisher in: #development@Zylker haslink: product
  2. <in: chat> <before: date> <from: username> <hasfile: name>
