Search Everywhere, Find Anything

In Space, you can search for any entity or text and instantly navigate to it once it's found.

Here's a quick tip to remember:

  • Press Ctrl+K to quickly find entities, such as teams, projects, people, articles, chat channels. Read more about the options and filters that you can use with this search.

  • Press Ctrl+Shift+F to search for content and find text occurences in Documents, Blog, chat messages, and member profiles.

Search for content

You can perform a full-text search within documents, blog posts, chat conversations, teams, and member profiles.

To begin your search, press Ctrl+Shift+F.

The search scope is defined by the context you are currently in. For example, if you open the search while you're messaging another member in Chats, it will be set to search your messaging history with that member:


You can delete your current scope and choose a different one, or search the entire organization:


Search for entities

Space lets you search for any item by its name, title, or subject, and instantly navigate to it once it's found.

The search is context-aware and is limited to the scope of your current location. For example, if you're in the Blog, your search will return relevant blog posts first. You can always change the scope or remove it altogether to search everywhere.

To begin your search, press Ctrl+K, or click search.png on the navigation bar, and start typing:

Filter your search results

To perform a context-specific search, append a corresponding Space entity to your query (chat, project, repository, blog, team).

For example, if you are looking for a team that contains the word cool in its name, type in cool and team. Your search will be confined to teams. If you are looking for a project, type in cool and project to return projects only:


For example, to find a partcular file, you can start by specifying the project name, then press Tab and type the repository name, press Tab again and type in the file name:

  1. Project name and Tab:

  2. Repository name and Tab:

  3. File name:


Type in / (a forward slash) to quickly navigate to one of these categories:


Some categories let you search them further by pressing Tab and typing in a query.

Create new entities

Type in new and append or select the entity to create it. For example, you can set up a new meeting without leaving the page you're currently on.
