Flux Capacitor

A couple of days ago, we published full-text search for Flowdock. It was a hit, everyone loved it, but still, the implementation was clearly lacking something.

That’s right,
Not enough flux capacitors!

The situation had to be rectified immediately, so naturally we implemented some and they are now deployed. (If you’re hazy on the DeLorean Time Machine, read more here.)

But what ever does that mean!?

Okay, so you make a search for, let’s say the word precisely. You might get some older results that you don’t have a clear recollection of, for example:


You’re going to be wanting some context. That’s where time travel and the flux capacitors kick in. There’s a link labeled “Show in chat” with a super-cool flux capacitor icon next to it. Clicking the link will take you through time and space to that moment in chat-time and show you exactly what went down.


There’s really nothing better than chat-time travel and 80’s movies depicting the 50’s.
