User Guide

The official user guide for RocketChat can be found here

Known Issues

  • Video/Voice calls and Video-Conference (uses meet.jit.si) are features still in beta. Please report bugs to github.com/RocketChat/Rocket.Chat/issues
  • Searching for a user using the full name does not work on the main search yet, but is coming soon. This works through "Create a new channel"->"Search by username" as long as the user has updated his/her name in the rocketchat profile.

Tips

To open a video/voice call between just two users, use the direct message route. Choose the user, click on "User Info" icon on the right sidebar and click on the video/telephone icon to make a direct video/audio call.

Mensa Bot

To view the menu of Mensa, Mensateria and Frankenstube in a channel:

  • add the user "MensaBot" (ext700590) to your channel
  • Use !mensa to show the menu for the current day. !mensa <offset> shows menu for other days, e.g. "!mensa +1" gives you the menu for tomorrow
  • Only menus for the current week are available.
