Enterprise Edition (EE)

#18254 More Data Privacy For Push Notifications

Thanks to this feature, push notifications have become safer: now, only the ID of each message is shown with notifications. Username and content of the messages, for instance, won’t be shown inside notifications, guaranteeing even more privacy to communications.

In order to have this feature enabled, make sure to download the most recent version of Rocket.Chat’s mobile app. The feature comes enabled by default for mobile users.

#18093 New License Tags

Now, administrators can easily see the type of license they have in Rocket.Chat. The tag will be visible on the top-left corner of the administration area as a badge.

To find this feature, go to the Administration menu and look for the badge:

#18260 New User Field: Find people by their Nickname
