Hello everyone, the question is simple, I need to have a field for entering a phone number when registering
I don’t know how to do this, but I think we need to start by adding a phone number input field to the html code of the user registration page, so how to do it?
Thank you for reaching out, and welcome to the forums!
To add a phone number input field to the user registration page in Mattermost, you’ll need to modify the HTML code for the registration form. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:
- Access the Mattermost server where you have administrative privileges.
- Locate the HTML template file for the user registration page. The file path may vary depending on your installation method and configuration. By default, the file is located at
- Create a backup of the original
signup_email.html file to ensure you can revert any changes if needed.
- Open the
signup_email.html file in a text editor.
- Look for the
<form> tag within the HTML code. This is where the registration form is defined.
- Add a new input field for the phone number. You can use the
<input> HTML tag with the
type attribute set to
tel to indicate a phone number input field. Here’s an example of a phone number input field:
<input type="tel" name="phone" id="phone" placeholder="Phone Number" required>
Customize the input field attributes, such as the
placeholder, according to your preference.
7. Save the changes to the
8. Restart the Mattermost server for the changes to take effect.
After completing these steps, the user registration page will include a new input field for the phone number. When users register, they’ll be able to enter their phone number as part of the registration process.
Please note that modifying the HTML code directly is considered a customization and may require additional maintenance when updating Mattermost to a new version. It’s recommended to test the changes in a development or staging environment before applying them to a production server.
Hope this helps,
