SlackBridge Alias Formatting


In the admin setting under SlackBridge, there is a field to configure “Alias Format”, I cannot find any documentation anywhere on what this does and how to configure it. Can someone help me understand its purpose and how to configure it?

I am assuming it may help dynamically display what user sent a message from the Slack side. Right now ALL the messages in Rocket.Chat are shown as coming from the Admin so I cannot tell who sent what.
