  1. 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…

        • 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.

          • 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 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

              • 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.

                • Consolidate display of join/leave messages into a single System Message

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

                      Every time I start Mattermost, it asks me for url and account info, with no option to save it. Please use Android's Account backend to save login information.

                      • search through all teams

                        Right now the scope of the search feature is limited to the current team. It would be great to have option allowing to specify the scope: channel, team, global (for example)

                        • Share pictures from the app

                          It would be nice if pressing and holding a picture for a few seconds in the chat window would let you share it to other apps. Right now in the React app pressing on a picture in a chat will make it light up a bit, but there's no prompt to do anything with the picture. Also it seems that there's no way to share pictures from within the app in general.

                          The only other OSS chat app I've found that allows this so far is rocket.chat (but only on their old Cordova app).

                          • "Voiced" channel mode like IRC

                            Sometimes (especially in open source development) public and private are not granular enough distinctions. I'd like to be able to set a public channel as "voiced" where only certain users can post messages, but everyone can read them.

                            This is similar to IRC, and is extremely useful for meetings held publicly, but where the only voiced participants are members of the project leadership.

                            • Open attached image in browser

                              When trying to view attached images at their full resolution, having to save the image, find where you saved it, and then open it there is quite clunky.

                              It would be better to open the attached image in a browser, users can right click save it from there, and it can easily be maximized there

                                • 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…

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

                                      • Add background color on BOT messages (by condition or log level)

                                        I just wonder that if MM could set background color for messages by condition.
                                        Like hipchat that bot messages could show with different color by info level:
                                        green => success
                                        yellow => warning
                                        red => failed

                                        • Allow custom emojis to appear in default dimensions

                                          Hey guys,

                                          I really like the product, would be possible to display the custom emojis in their default size? Similar the way we post a picture with a direct link in a conversation. Would be nice to have not only the default emoji sizes (I'm aware of the possibility to use # to make the gifs and pictures smaller/bigger), but if we could add and save them in a larger state. Currently any meme which has writings on it can not be seen well, and we know that memes=life. Thank sin advance!
