I would really love to find the first message I've ever posted in Stack Exchange chat, or, more precisely, a particular room.
Okay, I admit, I'm a bit nostalgic.
However, I can only search for messages containing a certain string, and my "recent" messages don't allow me to scroll back.
So, how do I find that piece of information? If that's not currently possible, please add some way to check that, e.g. by allowing to search transcripts where I participate all the way back in time.
There are many options that would not only allow me to find that particular message, but also improve the functionality of search as a whole, since currently, it's very limited.
The Replies tab, which lets me choose "last month", but that's it. It would be easy to include more time spans to be selected there.
The Search box, which lets me search for a particular string only, without wildcards. It'd also be easy to have it search for all messages, or alternatively only by specifying a certain time range to prevent excess.
The Transcript, which could be filtered by days where I participate to make it easier to find interesting conversations even if they happened a while ago.
All in all, the tools are available in the backend and data, but it feels like they're still missing in the search feature open to the public.
