How do you set the Mattermost client to autoload history?

Currently when a user scrolls up they have to click “Load more messages.” How can this be set to automatically load more in an auto-pager fashion similar to HipChat? Or set it such that when a user get’s close to the cutoff of history, it just automatically starts loading more repeatedly?

Hi @ylluminate,

There is a PR open to add an “infinite scroll” feature, would this be what you are looking for: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-webapp/pull/941?

There is no set release date for this feature yet, but it’s in progress!

That is fantastic, yes thanks for isolating that. This will be most helpful and appears to be aimed at the 5.2 release. I think having this is a great first step and perhaps we can get to a point where there are some additional functions for lager scrollback that I’ll bring up at that point once it’s ready for consumption.
