Feature request: User Badges

We use Mattermost for an association, but the chat server is open to everybody. It would be great if we could somehow add “user badges” / “tags” / “public user groups” to the users that are also members of the association or of the board.

Discourse has a similar feature, where users can belong to multiple groups, and a “primary group” (for example “Member”) can be selected. The name of this primary group is then displayed next to the user name.

Hi dbrgn and welcome to the Mattermost forums!

The badges plugin might be what you’re looking for, did you check it out already?

Thanks @agriesser, that might be useful! I’ll check it out :slightly_smiling_face:

Awesome - let me know if it helped or if you have trouble with the setup.
