Advanced tips on how to use Paperbot's powerful search system to find exactly what you are looking for.
Search on Paperbot is very powerful and goes way beyond just basic keyword.
- You can use #channel-names and #hashtags to filter content by the channel they were posted in or hashtags associated with them
- You can search for specific people by typing their @username
- You can use the "-" operator to exclude a specific keyword
For instance, if you search for "@john #marketing -adwords", this will find all posts by John, in the marketing channel or with the marketing keyword, with the exception of posts containing "adwords" on their title/ description.
You can also use the slash command
/ppb-seach to search contents directly from Slack. This command works similarly the web search, you can search on #channels, @people and even use operators to exclude some tags.
