Highlight Words, for Custom Notifications / Mentions
Allow users to provide a comma separated list of words that will trigger a notification, so you will be notified if someone is talking about you without using the @mention syntax, or if you have a nickname that people often refer to you as besides your username.
In Slack, these are called Highlight Words, and your username minus the @ is automatically one.
This would be very useful for Pokemon Go groups. Everyone has different Pokemon they are hunting for and might only care about alerts for those
Would also be completely necessary to have the option to get notifications for messages from specific people along with this..
Is this still not added?
This is an absolute must have feature

I was honestly very surprised that discord didn't have this feature. If I had to choose between slack and discord, not being able to pick highlight words in discord would make me choose slack, no question.
This would be a fantastic addition. I've really missed this feature in Discord when coming from some other chat platforms.
Please do this! It would be great to be able to get a notification when a specific word is said in a channel, e.g an item in a game's marketplace
This would be very useful!

This needs to happen. It would be nice to know if people are talking about me behind my back. :P

needed - server specific
I'd like an option to enable/disable notifications for certain keywords, for example, if there's a certain subject you want to keep tabs on, you could be notified if its mentioned, or disable notifications, even mentions, so long as a word is in the message
Absolutely vital feature (especially for anyone transitioning from IRC... ;)).
As a bear enthusiast, I am saddened by all the bear-related conversations I miss out. I could really use a way to get notified whenever someone talks about bears, so I can join the discussion.
This is an important feature common among IRC/chat clients that is sorely missed here. Please make it a higher priority.
V important Functionality - would like to be able to filter notifications more finely. A list of words too would be nice
It would be great on the notifications customisation for each #channel or server to have a "Keywords" notification. Eg how you can get notifications for only @mentions or suppress @here and @everyone you could have a checkbox for "keywords" and a box to enter custom keywords.
Yes please! I maintain a few WeakAuras and would like to be notified if anyone is talking about them or asking for a WeakAura that I can do. Instead of just simple words, I would also like the option to notify if a single message contains all of a handful of certain words. For example, I have a Potion of Old War during Crusade WeakAura. I would like a message that contains the words "potion, old, war, & crusade" to notify me.
This, please. I have one server I'm on where I'm known by a nickname that is not my username, so having this would be really nice for when people refer to me by said nickname.
