Mattermost, Inc.

Connect to multiple servers in Android App

I just installed the Mattermost app from the play store. I’ve been trying to figure out how I can connect it to two different mattermost servers simultaneously.

I know that the Desktop app allows this, but I’m not seeing how to do it in the mobile app.

I work on multiple collaborative teams, and some of them utilize a mattermost server hosted by one organization, and others use a server hosted by another organization. (And I participate in multiple teams on each of those servers as well).

The mobile app certainly works for multiple teams on one server, I just haven’t figured out how to connect to a second server.

  • If this capability exists, could someone please tell me how to use it,
  • If the capability does not exist, then please consider this a feature request.

Thanks!

Hi @harky, thank you for reaching out!

This is absolutely something we should add for the mobile apps as we currently do not support multiple servers on the mobile app. There is a feature request open for this here with many votes.

We have also recently started to have more discussion about this as a team and we realize that there is a real need to support this feature. Unfortunately I am not able to give a timeline on when this feature will be available as of now, but I can give updates in this issue if there are further developments on this in the near future.

Hope this helps!
