Matterpoll is a plugin for Mattermost. It allows users to create poll by using a slash command.

Installation

  1. Go to the releases page of this GitHub repository and download the latest release for your Mattermost server.
  2. Upload this file in the Mattermost System Console > Plugins > Management page to install the plugin. To learn more about how to upload a plugin, see the documentation.
  3. You should set Enable integrations to override usernames and Enable integrations to override profile picture icons in System Console > Custom Integrations to true.

Settings

You can configure Matterpoll from System Console > Plugins > Matterpoll.

  • Trigger: Change trigger word for poll command. (default /poll)

Usage

/poll "Is Matterpoll great?" creates a poll with the answer options "Yes" and "No". You can also leave out the double quotes and just type /poll Is Matterpoll great?.

If you want to define all answer options by yourself, type /poll "Is Matterpoll great?" "Of course" "In any case" "Definitely"- Note that the double quotes are required in this case.

Poll Settings

Poll Settings provider further customisation, e.g. /poll "Is Matterpoll great?" "Of course" "In any case" "Definitely" --progress --anonymous. The available Poll Settings are:

  • --anonymous: Don't show who voted for what at the end
  • --progress: During the poll, show how many votes each answer option got
  • --public-add-option: Allow all users to add additional options

Localization

Matterpoll supports localization of user specify messages. You can change language of poll message by setting it in System Console > General > Localization > Default Server Language. Language of messages that only a user can see (e.g.: help messages, error messages) use the language set in Account Settings > Display > Language.

The currently supported languages are:

  • English
  • France
  • German
  • Japanese

Troubleshooting

Pressing the poll buttons does nothing and creates a 400 error in the Mattermost log

Make sure to set your Site URL properly. For example, this error happens in case you set SiteURL starting with http://, in spite of running Mattermost server through https.
