Add Search and Sorting for Users and Channels in React UI Kit and Web Widget UI

Dear Sendbird Staff,

It would be great if you could add below features in upcoming releases,

  • Search Channels with type option (Channel Name, Users in the Channel)
  • Search Users with nickname.
  • Sorting option for Users (nickname, addedDate etc)
  • Sorting option for channel (by name, date created, last message, no of unread message etc)

I have added it to my code by customizing the component but it really hard to do that.

Thanks in advance!

Hey @tahiralvi,

Hopefully I can answer some of these questions for you.

Search Channels with type option (Channel Name, Users in the Channel)

Search Users with nickname.

The rest of your queries can be be accomplished if you reference the above documentation. Using a combination of the queries. Hope this helps!

Thanks, @Alex_Preston for the detailed answer and providing the links for appropriate endpoints in Sendbird API.

I will surely get back to you in case of any issue during implementation.
