Decisions about Mattermost
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Mattermost in their tech stack.
I've used Slack for team communication but I'm looking for a new collaboration tool that allows advanced permissions.
- Enable/disable DMs.
- Private room, where only allowed members can communicate but still can't send DMs if it's disabled.
I'm considering Mattermost or RocketChat. Does anyone have experience with them? Otherwise, any recommendations?
We need to develop a social media like chat in which users can message each other or create a channel. We are planning to use RocketChat or Mattermost under the hood to develop a custom UI. How do notifications work in that case? Has anyone done it? Or is there any better way to implement it.
