[SOLVED] Users automatically joining multiple public channels

My goal is to have new users login to Mattermost, join our team, and automatically join multiple public channels. Is there a way to do this that I am missing?

Hi @kdorsey0718,

Thanks for your question,

There isn’t currently a way to do this but you can add your vote to this feature suggestion which will increase it’s popularity.


Hi but counts this for whole Server?
I want to auto Join Channels on specific Teams.
Not Server Wide, but Teams wide.

U understand?
How can i archive that, with: https://docs.mattermost.com/administration/config-settings.html#default-channels-experimental ?

Hello, @lenusch

From what I understand here, you want to have users to be able to join public / private channels automatically but can you explain a little bit further on the differences between server wide and teams wide? Can you provide some examples too? That will help us to understand if this is something that is achievable or not available just yet.

Meanwhile, the documentation you referred to allows you to add new users to the channels you configured through the modification of the ExperimentalDefaultChannels array under the TeamSettings object. For example:

"ExperimentalDefaultChannels": ["announcement", "development", "testing"]

I would try this plugin

Then you can specify per team which message should come and what should happen.
