    • When idle, only send email notification if status doesn't change to online in 1 minute

      I suggest the following behavior when email notifications are turned on. Assuming email notifications are turned on, when a notification is triggered (direct message, mention, etc.), if the recipient's status is idle, trigger the usual MatterMost interface and system notifications, but wait 1 minute before generating an email. If the user's status changes back to online, we can assume they can/have seen the notification so do not generate an email. If their status is still away after the 1 minute delay, send the email as normal.

      There are many times I have the MM client open but not the active…

      • Allow users to choose the Teammate Name Display option

        From version 4.0 the Teammate Name Display option is an administrator only option for the reasons explained at https://forum.mattermost.org/t/switching-teammate-name-display-to-a-system-console-setting/3366

        Please add another option in the _System Console_ under _Users and Teams_ "Allow users to choose Teammate Name Display" which allows users to choose how to display users' names in posts and the Direct Messages list.

        We understand that the name in the push notification would not reflect an individual user's preferences; this would be totally fine for us (but it probably should be mentioned in the description text of the new option).

        The main thing is that our users prefer…

        • make threads collapsible

          A toggle option so that threads appear as "N comments" and open in the side-panel, so they do not interrupt the main flow of the channel, and you can follow each thread mode easily.

          • Edit default emojis

            We use the default emojis and the custom emojis in our Mattermost. To custom it even more, we would like to edit the full set of default emojis (not create new ones) e.G. `:D`.

            The proposition could be done in several parts:
            - setup in the administration panel a way to edit the picture for one default emoji
            - setup a way from the administration panel to import a set of emojis to replace the default ones
            - setup in the administration panel a way to reset the default emojis to the original ones
            - update mobile applications to display…

            • Add a Message of the Day feature for each channel

              We have several teams at work and each channel in the team has a specific purpose. It would be ideal if we could set a time at which a recurring message of the day would be posted. We would include links to resources for the team as well as recent news for people who have been out of the office and are returning.

              It would be like an extension to the header and purpose sections. Ideally tagging people would work such that some of the messages can act as daily reminders to everyone of the schedule.

              • Send stickers like in telegram

                emojis not expressive enough? with sticker packs from telegram, it would definitely spice up your chat in your team!

                • Share extension for the iOS app

                  It would be cool to have a share extension in iOS so that one can share a link directly to Mattermost like the hipchat app does it.

                  • Build a thread system similar to Twist

                    As plenty of companies around there we find Slack/Mattermost a bit too chatty at times. More importantly, it sometimes makes it really hard to follow discussion around a specific topic. For now we have two choices :

                    1. Create a specific channel around a topic. But you can start to have a lot of channels really fast
                    2. Use "threads". But to be frank threads implementation is really lacking and not practical for complex discussions

                    A new player,https://twistapp.com/, has an interesting take on this problem. Real time channels still exists, but there is another category of channels, entirely…

                    • Support for the Slack Real Time Messaging (RTM) websocket API

                      The RTM API allows integrations to connect to slack from behind a firewall, seemingly connecting much like a normal desktop client might, from any computer, not just an externally visible server.

                      It's a very important enterprise feature for those wanting to integrate Mattermost with their internal applications.

                      Further discussion on this can be found here:
                      https://forum.mattermost.org/t/does-mattermost-support-real-time-messaging-api-from-slack/1287/2

                      And this slack FAQ describes the differences between the Events and RTM API's:
                      https://api.slack.com/faq#events_api

                      This is the Slack RTM API spec:

                      • Make MFA part of the team edition

                        Securing your chat server should not depend on the size of your wallet. I think there are enough other reasons for enterprises to pay for Mattermost (support plans, branding, LDAP). Allowing additional security to private persons, open source- and small teams would be awesome.

                              • Confirm with ping warning before sending @all @everyone @here @channel mentions

                                Notifications are challenging, and a common source of friction seems to be "hey, you triggered a notification I didn't want by saying @all".

                                Slack handles this nicely: they intercept the message before send, and advise the user of the outcome.

                                > By using @all, you are about to notify 123 people in 12 timezones. Are you sure? [edit message] [send now]

                                  How about adding touchbar integration for the latest Macbook Pros? This is one thing that HipChat had that was quite useful - could be used for emoji search, setting away/dnd status, etc.

                                  Thoughts?

                                  • Image preview should honor exif orientation

                                    Mattermost fetches images from a URL to that image, however it ignores the exif data. This results in the preview often being in the wrong orientation.

                                    • Delete Direct Message History

                                      Currently, we have users that work in close proximity to one another, and sometimes take on each other's identities, it would be nice if we had a way for a user to delete their direct message history. Reopening a direct message with a user should start fresh. If the logs remained unchanged that would be great too.

                                      • hide offline contacts

                                        It would be nice to have an option, that enables the user to hide contacts that are currently offline.
                                        This would mainly apply to the "direct messages".
                                        It is really annoying to search through a long list (~50) of contacts you often need to chat with, when about 50% are currently offline and are therefore of no interest at the moment.

                                        • Allow navigation through all channel images

                                          Right now you can only navigate through images posted at the same time, whereas slack will let you navigate through the entire history of images
