Search

When you’re looking for a thread or message, Twist has a robust search to help you find what you need. Here’s how to use it.

If you need to search for something very specific, you may want to try search with filters or search shortcuts.

  1. Open the search tab.
  2. Type out what you’re looking for in the Search Twist field and press enter.
  3. The search results will show up on the left. Click on the thread or message that you’re looking for.
  4. You’ll see the section of the thread or message where the search term appears. Read more by clicking Open thread or Open conversation in the bottom right.

Tips for using search

Most of the time, you can use basic search to find what you need, but as your Twist grows you may have trouble locating specific threads, comments or messages. Use search shortcuts or search filters to quickly narrow down your results. A few examples:

  • Search between two dates by using search filters.
  • Find a comment or message from Mario by using From:Mario.
  • Find a comment that notified Alex by using To:Alex.
  • Search for a thread within the Design channel using channel:Design.
