Searching for content in Happeo and your G Suite

The Happeo main search is extremely powerful. It searches from your channels, posts, organisation users, Pages, Google Drive, Google Sites, Google Calendar and Gmail.

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

Note: if you are in a Channel or Page then the search will automatically be filtered based on the Page or Channel that you are in. To widen the search remove the auto filter.


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