Not sure if this would benefit others, but an idea for an enhancement (I don’‘t believe this already exists?). From time to time, I’‘ll have a conversation with a coworker via IM that contains some information I may want to ‘‘remember’’ a month or so down the road. Usually what I end up remembering is that we discussed it via IM, and it’'s in my chat history somewhere. It would be useful to provide some sort of search utility (something as simple as what Cntrl-F provides to Windows Wordpad) in the conversation history so that you can quickly search for key words.
What would be really nice is a way to tie it into something like MS Desktop Search, that way I can search my email, im, files, etc… all at the same time. I know that they do provide ‘‘generic’’ search commands.
Anyways, just throwing it out there. Thanks.
