    1. Imagine searching for “401k matching” and instead of just receiving relevant messages or files, you also get a list of people in HR that can answer your question, or a list of channels for your query where you might be able to find the information you are looking for, or even a list of commonly asked questions relevant to that topic with links to the channel where each one was answered.

      This would be good.

    2. Relevant search relaxes the age constraint and takes into account the Lucene score of the document — how well it matches the query terms (Solr powers search at Slack).

      Relevant

    3. Recent search finds the messages that match all terms, and presents them in reverse chronological order.

      Recent

    4. On average, 20% of a knowledge worker’s day is spent looking for the information they need to get their work done.

      Wow!

    1. To find the right integration, I scoured the internet and tested a few different solutions. Some where just OVERLY complex, some just didnt work, and some were just right (Codename Goldilocks). The one that I found worked perfectly for me was ‘slack-irc-plugin‘, by Jimmy Hillis.
