HipChat - Search History

Is it possible to search the chat history for entries by a user, rather than just by date?

Seems like a standard thing to me, but don't seem to be able to do it.  Is it possible?

Thanks for the clarification. I had already found that and voted on it. I can't quite believe this is something you can't already do. :-(

Incidentally, if you put the user's @-mention name as part of the search (e.g. "@SteveSweales some search terms") it will limit the results to either 1) messages that actually contain the string "@SteveSweales" or messages from that user. It's not the perfect solution, but does provide a measure of flexibility that might help you out for now.

Thanks Chris, that really helps! :-)
