    Add a way to jump to certain text in different channels. This is some what in the search function, but it would be nice to allow group's themselves if they so chose to come up with their own searching functionality or plugins.

    Please, add function to search messages in chat rooms. In Skype, if you press Ctrl+F, you can search messages by date or entering speciffic words. It will be really useful.

    @roope: it's already on its way, some servers and apparently DMs already have it working. Just gotta be patient.

  • rooperoope commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please, make this the highest fucking priority. Should have been there since the launch.

    Oh boy! Thanks for getting to this, devs. I was surprised to see it wasn't a feature when I started using Discord, and already I've wished I could search a few times, so this will be a nice change. :)

    @stop: So far I have seen it only on partnered servers, not sure but possibly chosen.

  • stopstop commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    it's an idea in development
    some "select" (I'm not sure if it's random or chosen) servers have it
    if you want to see this feature before it's fully released go on my server. it has it for some reason. https://discord.gg/vzZ56eW
    (if you know why some servers have it, please join it and dm me why)

    i'm not a developer, I've only heard this second-hand
    this idea is actually being developed, and it'll be released in time.
    some "select" (I don't know if it's chosen or random) servers have this feature
    (my server has it) https://discord.gg/vzZ56eW
    (if anyone knows why mine has it please dm me)

  • stopstop commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    my server has it. it's a great feature.
    does anyone know if servers with the feature are "chosen" or just picked at random?

  • ShadowShadow commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    @Xishalet: it looks like only a few selected servers have it available for now, the feature isn't fully released yet but it seems they are live testing it.

  • ShadowShadow commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Agreed Balamung. Also, this feature is already underway, some selected servers already have it since today (12/23). Just a matter of time and testing until it will be available to everyone. People just need to be patient, it's no the "end of world" :P
