What we wanted to do, was have some way to search and export Chatter posts, based on the hashtags that were used. So when Jeff starts a #shoutoutfriday, we can see all of the posts with the same hashtag, and then export that list in a nice little list! Pretty neat right?
We did have a few technical requirements for the challenge as well! The Apex had to run as a SysAdmin so it had access to all posts, search parameters around date ranges, and of course some output requirements as well, such as Author, relevant posts and comments, etc.
At the end of the day, we had a couple of really good submissions, one from Manish_Kumar and the other from cloudchallenger, that ended up being our winners! Check out their submission videos below to see how their apps work, and don't forget to start #hashtagging like a mad man!
