WhereDat + Slack
Use WhereDat to search by channel, user, or message.
Connecting WhereDat to Slack allows you to search and manage your slack messages and channels.
BUT slack already has search...
Yes, and by connecting WhereDat to Slack's search you can not only search and manage your Slack messages but multiple other apps as well.
WHY IS THAT USEFUL?
In today's workplace, information is scattered across multiple apps making it difficult to find when you need it. For instance, ever tried to hunt down a specific file without knowing which app it's in? Was that sent to me over Slack, Gmail, or assigned to me on Trello?
First, if you haven't already, you will need to download WhereDat, then follow the directions below.
1. Connect Slack
2. Login to Slack to give WhereDat searching permissions.
3. Start searching!
To utilize WhereDat's search capabilities we recommend you connect at least three of your apps.
Here, the connected apps are JIRA, Dropbox, Trello, Google Drive, and Slack, so WhereDat is searching inside all of these. By selecting a search result, the app will be loaded in preview window.
