Find any document in seconds

Image from store Haystack
Description from store Focus on your work, not finding your documents. Haystack helps you make the most of your time, by searching all your documents, files and history in the cloud in one place, instantly. It's also privacy-centric by being a local only solution! No files, documents, meta information or OAuth tokens are stored on a server, everything is stored on your computer. Never waste time asking or answering these questions again: Where? Search across Drive, Dropbox, Slack, Asana, Browser History and 20+ cloud solutions at once. What? Search both names and the content inside documents using simple filters. Which? Ensure you're opening the right file with a preview and version information. Why? Share, download or duplicate a file in one click (or keyboard shortcut). Using a keyboard shortcut (Control/Cmd + Spacebar) Haystack will allow you to search all your content that you have added in one place. It also takes over your new tab, showing the weather, the date and a quick way to search your content. It also shows contextual information inside of Google, Google Drive and other document based software.

Latest reviews

  • (2021-04-09) Eric: This extension no longer works (their website - haystackapps.com is down and their email returns to sender). It looks like this extension has been deliberately killed by its developer (or someone who acquired it)
  • (2021-01-29) M D: It was good while it lasted
  • (2020-07-22) Todd Carter: Abandoned?
  • (2020-03-26) Justin Landis: Would really love to use this but it is currently unverified by Google. Is Haystack slated to verified any time soon?
  • (2019-04-04) Joanne Kapp: Highly recommend! Haystack is a bit lifechanging for people that work with tons of different docs and projects and can never find them! It's so simple and easy to use. Makes finding things super easy. I can search across various work and personal gmail drives.
  • (2019-03-28) Seung Shin: This is an absolute must - incredibly effective & intuitive... I love Haystack! To think of the time I would've saved had this existed a few years ago... wow! Please don't ever shut down, lol.
  • (2019-03-11) Impressive! A solid extension, which gives you back your time to focus on the work at hand. A definite keeper.
  • (2019-03-03) Jake Cohn: So refreshing to see an app like this deliver on its promises. I've been using for a week so far and my searching habits are already changing, surprisingly. Fully functional, secure, etc...no complaints!
  • (2019-03-01) Erica Douglas-Osborn: I find this a really useful way to quickly find a document anywhere. Sometimes I forget where I have put something I am searching for - I could be on emails or a word document or a PDF - with this tool is does not matter, it just finds it for me. Great time saver!
  • (2019-02-27) I can't remember where things are - dropbox? Sheets? Documents? Downloads? This helps me find what I'm looking for fast!
  • (2019-02-27) Robert Birnbaum: This is an incredible tool! After using it a few times, i'm wondering how did I ever live without it! Thanks Haystack.
  • (2019-02-27) Mark E Dingle: I was delighted to hear about and start using Haystack... as I find it very time consuming and annoying to find and access all the docs/files that I need to during the course of a day. Having to, many times a day, open Finder, drill down on my folders in Dropbox, and locate then open the file is annoying (way too many clicks and actions), every and many times a day. Dropbox is already a great, time saving utility, and I am sure it will only get better as it evolves.
  • (2019-02-27) Willem de Vries: Wow! It really just spits out what you're looking for! Time saver and incredibly easy/intuitive to use. Thanks Haystack!
  • (2019-02-27) A terrific tool that takes the grind and frustration out of finding what I need. And easy to use for even a non-techie like me.
  • (2019-02-27) Greg Alkalay: Super helpful, fast and intuitive. Organization has never been my strong suit, so having a tool like Haystack basically saves me from myself!
  • (2019-02-27) Tried it out and searched for really old documents. Took less than a minute to locate them. This will surely save me time. I'll have my boss use this so he won't bother me looking for stuff HAHAHA!
  • (2019-02-27) Richard Mangione: This extension saves me about 20-30 minutes a day - and that's with knowing where my files are and with using Alfred. It's really convenient to just type a slash command and have the document you need right in front of you, and it's even more convenient for when I can't remember if I saved that note in Evernote, Google Docs, or somewhere else. I had expected the search to be a little slow, but it's nearly as fast as you can type.
  • (2019-02-27) Aditi Chaturvedi: Incredibly useful. Rather than having to toggle through different applications I have all my documents and links in one place. It's also cut down on my tab overload and let's me stay super organized. My favorite feature is Collections because I can gather important website links, google docs, and my Trello view for each individual project in their own collections. Much more organized than going through tons of bookmarks. I also really like the "recent documents" Collection because for the most part I toggle through the same 20ish webpages and documents everyday, so it's just much faster with the tool. Learning how to use it was also super quick. Definitely recommend!
  • (2019-02-26) Angus McLeod: This is one of the rare tools that is a permanent part of my toolkit. It does a seemingly simple (but actually quite complex) thing and does it well.
  • (2019-02-26) Anabel Wold: This is a magical browser extension that makes me feel SO organized. I don't need to obsess about file locations anymore. My documents are all there. In one place. Highly recommend this!!
  • (2019-02-26) Tony Peccatiello: Haystack is the extention that you didn't know you needed until you have it. I really do not remember how I used to find my files before this and am really excited for what they will do next. No longer do I waste time searching for documents in random folders, I just hit ctrl+space and search. So much better.
  • (2019-02-26) Makes searching for docs so much easier!
  • (2019-02-26) Roman Z: Brilliant extension...saves me at least 30 mins a day with all the files I have with different providers. Surprised this functionality isn't built into Google from the get-go!
  • (2019-02-26) Greg Farber: Love this - makes it so much easier to find what I'm looking for across numerous repositories (and gmail) for files that I keep. Highly recommend this!
  • (2019-02-26) Paige Birnbaum: Game changer!! I had no idea I even needed Haystack, but now I can't imagine life without it. It's so simple and easy to use. Makes finding my documents a breeze and I can easily search across my work and personal gmail accounts. Highly recommend!
