  1. Easy to use server side encryption for every server like in Nextcloud

    Having secure "at rest" data on the server is very important for data safety, especially due to the new privacy laws within the European Union. Nextcloud for example offers an easy to use server side encryption for its services within the settings. No special software is neesed.

    Our organisation really wishes an easy to setup server side encryption within the dashboard.

    • 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…

      • MSI installer for windows client

        We need a MSI file for automated (silent) installation. That way you can deploy the application with the group policy of windows.

        • Support Mattermost behind Basic Auth

          Currently, Mattermost Server usage behind Basic Auth is limited/handicapped due to authentication issues caused by the websocket connection (as it seems, basic auth headers are not propagated correctly).

          In our company, public services must be at least secured by basic auth. I guess other companies have same restrictions.

          So basic auth support would be a nice feature.

          • Allow users to adjust the display size for in-message text

            The message text is currently too small for my liking. It would be wonderful if we could allow users to adjust the display size of the text. Slack for instance lets you do this to some extent. Even a choice between 'small, medium, large, extra large' would be great. Thank you

            • 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.

              • Allow emoji reactions to trigger outgoing webhooks

                Just like it is possible to trigger outgoing webhooks from specific keywords, it'd be nice to trigger an outgoing webhook from a emoji reaction on a message.

                The idea is to allow the message being reacted to to be sent to another system where it could be parsed and analysed for further action.

                      We'd like to edit each others posts, e.g., for meeting reports and the like. Before, we used Slack, and found this feature really useful.

                      • More integration with jira to replace HipChat

                        Since HipChat is very buggy it would be nice to have Mattermost fully replace HipChat. That means that the current(beta) integration needs to be expanded to provide at least notifications for comments: craeted, updated and deleted.
                        In that way you can get important notifications when you have urgent issues.

                              Where lots of users join, I find it interferes with seeing real content. Any screen is dominated by System join messages.

                              • Implement emoji picker for iOS (same as already implemented for reactions)

                                A lot of our team members ask for this feature, as using iOS system emoji keyboard leads to ??? on other platforms. Would be really helpful to have an iOS emoji picker in the same style which is already implemented for reactions. The current system (typing : and emoji name) is not really working, especially for new team members.

                                  • Provide for multiple fonts

                                    Recently the ability to choose fonts was removed. See https://forum.mattermost.org/t/removing-font-setting/3367. Now there is only one font, and it renders poorly for me (insufficient weight/contrast) on smaller high DPI displays. This makes the GUI very hard to use. Please provide a way to select among a set of fonts, or ideally specify my own.

                                    Frankly the justification for removing the feature was weak. Let the user decide if the load time or other trade offs are worth the better rendering.

                                    • Disallow account creation using specified email domains

                                      "Restrict account creation to specified email domains" requires a list of "good" domains. But i need to disallow some domains. e.g. hotmail.*

                                      we don't want users to use some freemail-domains. especially ALL hotmail domains (hotmail.de, hotmail.com, hotmail.fr, ...)

                                      • Separate "Favorite channels" and "Favorite users"

                                        The new "Favorite channels" feature interleaves channels and users. It would be better to separate out "Favorite users", the same way Channels and Direct Messages are separate.

                                        • Allow interactive posts to be ephemeral

                                          Currently, interactive messages must be of `response_type` `in_channel`, and I think that interactive messages would be greatly more useful as ephemeral, as that will allow messages to be modified such as Slack's giphy integration, where the user can look through a set of images before choosing the one to post to the channel.

                                          It would also be useful as generic confirmation dialogs, or similar use cases
