This section describes how to use search in the add-in for Outlook:
You can add hashtags to meaningful terms in messages so all messages containing your hashtagged term can be collected together in a list of search results. For example, imagine you're writing about discounts. This topic comes up in a few unrelated Conversations and walls. Every time you or your colleagues say something about discounts, you all write discounts as a hashtag (#discounts). You can search for #discounts and return a list of all messages in otherwise unrelated Conversations and walls that contain the hashtagged term.
Tip: You can include the following characters in a hashtag: A through Z, a through z, 0 through 9 and _.
With any search, available hashtags are suggested when you enter your search term. Selecting one of these takes you to the Hashtags panel where all messages that include that hashtag are shown.
Hashtagged terms are clickable wherever they appear. So clicking #discounts in any Conversation takes you to the Hashtags panel, where all messages that include the hashtagged term are returned.
You can also follow hashtags. When you follow a hashtag, messages in public Conversations and walls that contain that hashtag appear on the Overview page, even if you are not a member of those Conversations or walls.
To follow a hashtag, click it wherever you see it to go to the Hashtags panel, then click at the top of the page. To stop following the hashtag, click again.
Top rated results appear in a drop-down list. Click a result to open the item.
To see only a particular result type (for example, Conversations or documents), click , then select a filter.
The search results open in the Search Results panel.
Note: You can also filter the results after running your search by selecting a filter from the Options menu on the Search Results banner.
