If you search for a certain topic in Slack, there’s now a feature that’ll help you identify which one of your accessible coworkers seems to know the most about a topic. This can be really helpful for larger organizations where employees may be spread across the globe.

Slack’ll also soon be rolling out some other features that are accessible upon request, like identifying what employees are talking about, and it can even narrow it down by region.
