Creating Custom Flag

(Frederico Lima) #1

Hi there,
I’m deploying an development instance of discourse at the company I work,
and I need to add a custom flag with something like this “candidate to knowledge base”.

Someone knows an plugin or configuration for me to create a custom flag, not only the “inappropriate” and “others” flag that it is already on the discourse?

Thank you.

Wouldn’t a tag work for that? We have a very similar #faq-material tag here.

No, we need a custom flag.


I would be interested in this too, with a ‘please delete my topic’ option.

It was discussed earlier and is on the roadmap but does not get requested a whole lot. May be a while!

Hi @fredlima @codinghorror - I am very interested in this addition as well.

Having a custom flag option so that an email can be sent to a certain admin would be very very valuable. Say, I would like to flag a post that needs to be reviewed by legal. I hit the flag button that says: [Legal Review] and the email gets sent directly to our company’s legal counsel. Thus, they can fix the flag and I can freely post back to the question.

If this coding is possible, could you let me know how I could go about making it?
