Can I search through the content of the file in hipchat ?


I'm going to upload some files in my HipChat rooms. Can I search through the content of the files ?

And also this question about documents in google docs.

Hi Евгений,

We are looking into into indexing uploaded files and making them searchable. However right now it is not the case.

Indexing the external documents (google docs) if the links are posted to the room is an interesting use case. It is a good idea to treat all documents in the same way whether they are uploaded or linked and index them - the tricky bit is to ensure the permissions are respected and to decide what happens the documents get deleted/moved.

(word) Exactly. Our search experience is lacking (to say the least), and searching within docs is definitely on the table to make search more useful and valuable to our users.

Thanks for the quick answer,Evan and Anatoli. Could you tell me,please, when the search (through uploaded files at least) is sheduled to run ?
