Is there a way to wild-card room names for the /join /leave commands?

Our organization is new to HipChat and created really long and descriptive room names, like "Our Company's Front-End Development Team". This great for finding the rooms to join, but makes using the /join painful, because I have to type "/join our company's front-end development team". Is there/should there be a way to wild-card the room name, something like this: /join *front-end*?

Hey Martin,


We've got that covered in our existing Suggestion here, for allowing wildcard searches within HipChat, however, we also have this other Feature Request, for adding a searchable tag option for Rooms.

Thanks! Consider this answered.
