How to Search for Users and Groups

A search will find channels (including the ones you are part of) and users. You can not search inside private channels.

When you click on a search result, the following can happen:

  • If the result is a channel, and you already aren’t part of it, you will join that channel;

  • If the result is a user, you will start a direct message with that user;

You can search the user you want to talk or click on that user’s avatar and click on the Conversation Button.

  • To search for channels and users, use the search bar under your account box. Alternatively, you can press Ctrl/Cmd + k to access the search bar quickly.

Just start typing and if it is available, the result will start to populate at the sidebar
