This feature is available on Subscription plans.

When you've uploaded chat metadata (for example, using our Slack cloud upload tool), chat filter facets are available in the filter carousel to quickly search and narrow down on relevant metadata.

We currently support filtering chat metadata from Slack and MS Teams.

Available chat filters include:

  • Chat / Conversation - Filter for a Channel or Direct Messages. Channels are indicated with a prefix "#"

  • Chat / DM Participant - Filter for names and usernames of participants in Direct Messages

  • Chat / Reaction - Filter for reaction emoji(s) used in messages

  • Chat / Sender - Filter for names and usernames of users who sent

How to Use Chat Filters

Filter for Messages within a Channel:

To filter for messages from a specific channel from Slack or Teams, you can type in the name of the channel in the Chat / Conversation field in the filter carousel. Be sure to include the prefix #):

Or, use the Advanced Search Builder to search the Slack Conversation Name field (sans the prefix #):

Search for Direct Messages between Individual Participants:

To filter for Direct Messages between 2 or more individuals, filter for the individuals in the Chat / DM Participant field in the filter carousel:

☝️ The DM Participants selected as additional filters should appear as blue pills under the filter carousel.

Next, type in the usernames (i.e., the names following the @ symbol in the Chat / DM Participant field) of the DM Participants in the Chat / DM Participant field:

πŸ’‘ Switch the order of names type in the Chat / Conversation box if the initial order does not show results. If no results appear for those 2 individuals typed in either order, the data set does not contain Direct Messages where only those 2 individuals were Participants.

Slack Fields

The following Slack Fields can be searched through the Advanced Search Builder and included as Columns in Table View:

The Advanced Search and Table view fields are coming soon for MS Teams!
