Search in old chats


In other chats, like, we can find information searching in old chats; but in rocket there is no way, or at least, I can’t find how. Is this feature enabled? If so, how to make a search to look for inside old chats?

For example, in, if a client needs to recover some email address, I typed the email in the search box and the chat was prompted to read it. In rocket chat there is no search box

Any additional Information

Are you admin or just a user?

There are various search options, but you can’t usually check emails via a general search. Stops harvesting!!

I’m the admin and also server manager

What I wrote was an example of what can do; but what are the other search options? I can see a lot of filters but no a free search box input

Assuming you have a latest version of Rocket…

Each Channel has search, but not for user emails for privacy. Look at the upper right corner for the magnifying glass.


There is also a global search. See Admin/Search. Note this can seriously impact performance.

As an admin you can view a users email address via their profile or through the Admin interface.

I believe as admin you can grant access to that view via Admin/Permissions

Hope that helps.

Each channel search is not what I want to do
A real search
A client needs to know when the promo for the product “Yeri fibra” started. How do I search that here?

I’m sorry but you didn’t make that clear…

I’m not sure there is a difference…

I think what you actually mean is “is there a search facility in omnichannel”

I’ll ask but it might be in EE not CE.

Thank you and sorry for the confusion

No worries!!

I am trying to check this out - I have a feeling that you can do this in EE, but not CE.

I’ll get back to you with more information as soon as I can - might be tomorrow though.
