Searchable zip files

We introduced zip files back into Whispa a little while ago and it's been working well for multiple files uploads. As you may have noticed when you upload multiple files they are named "multiple files" within the Whispa account. This works well if you only do this now and again, but can cause issues if you upload a lot.

Seeing a table similar to the below is confusing;

We have the Archive Inspector to help with this, but what if you don't want to go through 10 zip files looking for the file you need, when you already know what you are looking for?

We have now introduced the ability to search for file names stored within zip files. When you upload multiple files we now keep track of the individual file names stored within the group before zipping it up and storing it. This allows you to search for these even when it's buried within your account somewhere.

For example, searching for the word "Project" now returns a zip file uploaded;

When exploring this using the Archive Inspector, it reveals the files that we are looking for;

Our next update is in the works which will help with categorising files even further, keep an eye out for that!
