  1. Status labels

    **The idea:**

    One can set their status to some arbitrary text, which will be shown next to your username.

    **Details:**

    The command

    ```
    /status My new status
    ```

    can be used to change your status, it will then appear next to your screen name in replies:

    If the text is too long, it is truncated and you need to hover to see the full status:

    **Why:**

    It is incredibly useful to be able to see what your team mates are working on. Currently, our team are using a channel for this, but it's pretty inconvinient and quickly gets…

    • Sort contacts by last message

      Now the contacts (Direct messages) are always sorted alphabetically. It would be great to have different options of sorting. What we like the most is sorting by last message recieved/sent, which means on top we always have our most recent conversation (like in Skype)
      Any chance to have it in future?

      • Add the option to increase font size

        Currently the web interface has no option to increase the font size. This is plainly silly. Please fix this ASAP.

        • Permalink to the part of message

          If you want to show something in source code message or big plain text, you can select part of message and send it as permalink instead full message permalink.

          • Allow reactions to previous messages

            Reactions are great but can only be appended to a conversation. That is, they appear inline within a thread and don't allow me to react to a specific message once a reply has been posted. I'd like the ability to react to a specific message or reply no matter where it appears within a conversation.

            • Crtl+K CMD+K searching thru channels

              After realization of idea https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/17042614-crtl-k-cmd-k-faster-jumping-to-the-channel (it's great, thanks!) the new idea is to allow user to find channels from 'more channels' using ctrl+K or CMD+K shortcut.
              It'll be very useful to find channels where i'm not in but they are somewhere.
              Right now if channel is not on my channel list the search tool won't find it and there is a problem - users starting to make a copies of the same threads

              • Full Emoji picker

                Current emoji picker shows emojis only when typed at least 2 characters. People have no idea what the emojis are called / what exists, so we need a full emoji picker (like in slack) where all emojis can be browsed through.

                • Prevent non-admin users to rename channels

                  I'm aware of your business model and I'm fine with an advanced permissions system in the paid edition. I'm also aware that you carefully thought through the channel management for basic users (see https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/1764) and think it's a good way of approaching things.

                  But please, consider removing the ability for every one to rename channels. This is not useful, doesn't really make sense and more importantly leaves the ability for anyone to ruin a setup (prank or sabotage). It also gives a feeling of totally uncontrolled environment for these users.

                  This small feature makes me question the entire usage…

                  • Android App: Support Gitlab double auth

                    Actually having a mattermost instance connected to gitlab that use omniauth providers (in my case saml, github and google) is not compatible with the android client.

                    As it's working on IOS, I suggest that you evolve the android client to make it compatible.

                    From what I observe, the saml token is being truncated

                    • Use the "fallback" field from Slack's webhook attachment format as text for notification, when the provided text is empty.

                      The slack attachment format defines a fallback field, that is required for attachments to be valid, and is used when the full-formatted message is not usable in a particular context (e.g. text-mode clients, notifications).

                      For example, Slack uses that fallback field for the text of notifications. I believe that Mattermost should do the same.

                      That would require changes on the webhook-related code, on the format of the post object that is forwarded in Javascript, and on the code that generates the text shown in notifications. I could work on a PR if you are favorable to the idea.

                      • support for session cookies

                        From a security perspective, as the administrator of a Mattermost server i would like to be able to set a system-wide property to force the use of session-cookies for the web interface. Since computers can be shared i find it undesirable that you're automatically logged in again as is the case currently.
                        But i guess in the end you'll also get users complaining that they want the end user to be able to choose. So i guess the ultimate solution would be a property for session cookies that you can set to 'force' (user is not able to choose), 'optional'…

                        • Change email notification behavior

                          Right now, if I only use the browser and switch to different tabs my status changes from green to yellow. If someone sends me a direct message, I receive an email. That's annoying. I don't want to disable email notification as a whole. It makes much more sense to only send emails about messages I received while I was offline.

                            • Away Status Configuration

                              Just to expand on the original idea located here:

                              https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/17128663-configurable-away-time

                              Auto-away should at least be configurable in terms of minutes, or an option should exist to disable it completely. These settings should exist per user, but I'm not sure how much value it would add if the administrator determines the configuration for the team.

                              • open the emoji picker with typing ":", followed by pressing Tab

                                I'd really like to see the emoji picker that can be activated as described in the title, instead of the ":" followed by minimum of 2 characters as it is at the moment.
                                I'm aware of the full picker ticket https://mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/PLT-2354, but as i understand it doesn't include this feature.

                                  Please add a way to say I'm not available right now to chat - for those of us who share our screens throughout the day with others (clients), I don't want messages popping up for so clients can read them. Closing the program doesn't stop the messages from popping up or give us a way to move the pop up to another monitor - urggh ! can't believe what the client just read... Give us a way to show 'I'm Busy right now' so the pop ups stop PLEASE

                                  • resize image upload

                                    Fist important use of mattermost is sharing picture.
                                    We need to upload a smarphone picture with a good resize for not explode server hard drive. (picture management is not easy with history)

                                    For example when we upload a picture, a menu ask:
                                    Choose size upload:
                                    - original size (~4mB)
                                    - full hd (800 kB)
                                    - 1024px (200 kB)
                                    (we can use mozjpeg lib)

                                    Resize coulb be on the sever or on the app, but it's necessary.

                                    This feature is not on slack and i don't understand WHY.

                                        • Hotlink preview for uploaded image instead of thumbnail

                                          When uploading images it will be nice to have a preview features (like when entering an image through a link) instead of the current generated thumbnail which is not very representative of the image. This is somehow how Slack is showing uploaded image.
