We've built Honey to be as searchable as possible, so that you can quickly and easily find what you're looking for. Honey's search tools are visually pretty small, but search is a powerful tool. We'll show you how it works. 

Using Honey's global search.

Your global search tool can be found by clicking the magnifying glass icon in your left hand navigation menu. To use this search tool... 

  1. Type in your search term.
  2. Then, select a result from the popular options in the dropdown. 
  3. OR, use the return key to view a full list of search results. 

Understanding your search results.

In looking at your search results page, you'll likely see a wide variety of content. This is because Honey indexes and searches...

  • Post titles
  • Post bodies
  • Comments
  • Uploaded files that contain text
  • URL content — all of the text in a URL that has been scraped into Honey
  • User profiles
  • Group names
  • Topic names

You can use the filters on the left hand side of the search page to view the various types of content returned in your search results. 

You can also use the dropdown at the top righthand corner of your search results page to display your results by... 

  • Relevance
  • Date

Searching within a group.

If you'd like to search for something within a specific group, our group search has you covered. To do so.... 

  • Navigate to the group in which you'd like to search 
  • Then, at the top righthand corner of the feed click on the magnifying class icon. 
  • Type in your keyword and press return. This will display the results from content within the group. 
  • If you don't see what you're looking for you can use the Search Everywhere button to search all of Honey for your keyword. 

Using search modifiers.

Our search modifiers make it easy to narrow your search based on specific details. Modifier options include...

  • In. This is to find information in a specific group. Begin typing the name of a specific group. Once selected, you will find all posts within that group.
  • Has. This modifier suggests options regarding file, images, video, event, or url. If selected, the modifier will show the most recent three articles including your chosen term. You can also select a modifier under the has tab and include another term to make even more precise.
  • Before. This distinguishes a search that is before your specific date. 
  • After. This distinguishes a search that is after your specific date. 
  • Skill. If you're looking for an employee with a certain skill, look no further than this modifier. Type in a certain skill and you are good to go. 
  • Department. Search your fellow employees by their department. 
  • Organization. If you are part of more than one organization this is where you can search groups and posts within that group without leaving the one you are currently in.
