Automatically send private message when users reaches a new trust level

Hi there,

We have a discourse forum and a slack and would love to invite people to our slack only when they have reached trust level 2.

I would love to be able to automically send a DM once someone reaches trust level 2 with an invitation link to slack. How can I configure this in Discourse?

You could easily create a Trust Level 2 - see permission category with the invite and sign up info as a Pinned topic.


I’m aware, but to me, that lacks personality and I’d love to thank them automatically for being an active member and invite them to the slack chat

There’s no built-in way to do this, but it shouldn’t be hard to make a plugin for this. You can post in our #marketplace if it can’t be created internally.


We have discussed sending an automatic “congrats!” PM at trust level 2 and 3, also inviting users to try the advanced discobot tutorial as well @erlend_sh

@codinghorror That be great. For now, is there any way to retrieve a user’s trust level through JS so that we could assign a css class to the <html> tag and show a banner message or button once they reached a certain level?

It should be doable as a plugin if it doesn’t happen in Core. I think you could assign any currentUser property to any tag’s attribute. This is old, crude and not recently tested, but it might help as a start


This is now in place for trust level 1 —

Edit: also in place for Trust Level 2 as well for quite a while now, and the congratulations for TL3 (“welcome to the lounge”) has been in place for some time.
