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?

This is not currently supported, though it has been requested before. If it is important to you, you can vote for the issue here:

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! :-)
