Find a document

Your team's knowledge in Slite is meant to be easy to organize and easy to find. 

To search docs, use the shortcut cmd / ctrl+K or click on "Find anything" to expand the search panel.

If you don't enter anything in the search bar, we will show you the docs you've visited recently. All the best results, in one place. 🙌

Refine your search with filters

You can use filters to search in:

  • in channels. Start typing and the "search in channels" will appear below the search input.

  • in doc titles only. Click on "Filter" to make to display the option.

  • the trash. Click on "Filter" to make to display the option.

Advanced search tips

You can use exact search term by " before and after your search term.

You can even combine this on two words to refine your search. Example below

How often search is updated

Newly created docs should appear in search within a few seconds (and they'll be available for tagging in other docs, at that point.) Updates to existing document body content (rather than titles) could take a bit longer to index.


Currently, our search capability is limited to the first 40,000 characters in a doc. For very, very long docs, results after that 40,000 character limit will not appear in search.

Search engine indexing

We do not currently submit public docs to be indexed with Google.
