How to search in Fleep

One of the main benefits of Fleep is having all your project communication and files in one place. So, being able to search in Fleep and find pieces of information and files is crucial.

Search basics

The basics of how to search in Fleep are pretty straightforward. There are three places where you can search:

  • Search in All Conversations view - searches across all your conversations and finds topics, members, messages, tasks, pins and files matching your search keyword. Note that this search works with exact matches, partial matches (so searching "twee" would find any content that starts with "twee", like "tweet" or "tweeting") as well as multiple words (e.g. "Casey boarding" would find where "Casey" and "boarding" were mentioned together).
Note that all matches for the keyword you searched for will be highlighted in yellow - and when you click on a result, it will be opened where the keyword was found.
  • Search on the left-hand panel aka the conversation list search - searches across conversation topics:

Note that this search isn't cleared until you start typing into a conversation or click on the X to clear it yourself. This is so you can look through the search results if you're unsure which result was the one you were looking for!
  • Search inside conversations - finds messages, tasks, pins and files matching your search keyword within that conversation:

Note that clicking on the search result will not clear the search, so you can click through the results to find exactly what you were looking for.
Search tips
  • Keyboard shortcuts - there are two keyboard shortcuts you can use for searching.
    Ctrl + G (or Cmd + G if you're on a Mac) - activates the left pane search aka conversation list search
    Ctrl + F (or Cmd + F if you're on a Mac) - when a conversation is open, it activates the search inside the conversation
  • Fuzzy search? Nope, Fleep does not support fuzzy searching. So, you have to make sure you don't make typos and know what keyword you're searching for. Fuzzy search may be supported in the future, though!
