Spike Search: Tricks & Shortcuts

Spike has dedicated folders to help sort and find the emails you’re looking for. The default folders are Sent, Spam and Starred.  You can also create custom folders/tags. See how to create a tag here.


Extra powerful search shortcuts:

  • in:(tag name) – shows all messages with the Tag. You can also use this to search in each folder with free text.
  • is:unseen – search in Unseen.
  • in:trash – search in Trash.
  • in:spam – search in Spam.
  • is:starred – search in Starred.
Pro tip! You can combine other filters and free text for extra search power.


For example, is:unseen in:inbox seth.
In the below example we search for all unread messages from Seth (Godin) to catch up on our newsletter reading.
