Getting started

To get started, just start typing in the search bar and you'll see the first search predictions. The predictions have People, Channels and Pages.

If you want to do a wide search, type something into the search bar and press enter. This will show you the top results. 

By toggling the different sections, you can see more results from the different sections. You can also filter the search results using the filter by section option on the right-hand side of the search results. These filters are dynamic and will only show filters that are relevant to the search results.

Posts

Searches through all Posts and Comments within Happeo Channels. Search results are based on Channels that you are a member of.

Files

Searches all files within Happeo along with all Google Drive files that you have access to.

  • Most recent: Will show all files with file names that include the search term
  • Best match: Will show all files with file names and content that includes the search term

  • Sharing: Will show you the sharing permissions of the files
  • Public sharing: Sharing is set to public
  • External sharing: A user from outside of your organisation has access to this document
  • Internal sharing: Only users from your organisation have access to this document
  • Domain sharing: Files that are shared with your entire organisation's domain

Emails

Searches all of your emails to find either a subject or content that includes the search term. From the search, you are able to open the email directly.

Calendar

Searches all calendar events containing the search term. From the search, you are able to open the calendar event directly.

You can also share each search result. This can be done by clicking Share this search at the bottom of the filter options and will save the search URL to your clipboard so you can send it to others.

If you would like to know how search results are indexed, you can refer to this article.

Quick filters

Quick filters are ways in which you can search faster, improving the time it takes to find results. 

For example, when a quick filter like ‘people’ or ‘posts’ is applied, you will be taken directly to that section in the search results overview. 

Quick filters can also be used when searching within a specific Channel or Page. 

Searching in Channels and Pages

On Channels and Pages, you can:

  • Filter content directly 
  • Apply quick filters
  • When you leave the current Channel or Page, the quick filters will reset. Otherwise, they will stay enabled for other search queries

When you are viewing a Channel or a Page, by clicking on the search bar at the top of the page OR on the search option in the navigation, the search will automatically filter results within the Channel or Page.

If you wish to search through your Happeo in general, you can simply click on the next to the Channel or Page name in the search bar.
