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.
The basics of how to search in Fleep are pretty straightforward. There are two places where you can search:
1. Search on the left-hand panel aka the conversation list search. The initial search finds results among conversation topics and member matches. Clicking on Search from messages activates the search across all your conversations, finding topics, members, messages, tasks, pins and files matching your search keyword.
Note that the message 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 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!
2. Search inside conversations - finds messages, tasks, pins and files matching your search keyword within that conversation:
- 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!
