Federated search and import

Searching for files in Slack

Depending on your version of Brightspot, you can search for and import files stored in Slack. Brightspot's search is the same as Slack's: you can find files whose name contains a search term, and you can find text files that contain a search term.

Brightspot can search for the files to which you have access; if you can find the file in Slack's search, you can also find it with Brightspot.

Procedure. To search for files in Slack:
  1. In the header, click in the search field. The search panel appears.

  2. Under Global Filters, select Slack File.

  3. If this is the first time you are searching for files in Slack, do the following:

    1. Under Slack Authentication, click Sign in with Slack. A list of permissions appears.

    3. Click Close.

  4. In the search text field, type a search term. Brightspot retrieves the matching files.
