  1. 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.

    • 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…

      • 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:

        • 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]

          • 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

            • 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.

              • Allow for bots to directly upload images

                Bots are only able to post text messages to rooms, however, it would be convenient if bots were able to attach photos as a message to the room.

                We would prefer if our bot didn't have to upload images to an accessible URL and then post that url to the room (and then only get a preview of an image), as this adds a few extra steps to viewing the image and requires our bot to be aware of when it is done uploading the image to the host and then finally post the link to the room.

                • 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…

                  • 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.

                    • At present we can render tables, can we have the control to left/right align the tables

                      At present we can render tables, can we have the control to left/right align the tables.
                      Use case : For me my data is some what large, which can't fit in a screen. If we have the option to right align some tables, i can manage the space.

                      • Set policy for password history

                        A companies security policy often has rules stating that a password may not be reused. To facilitate this many applications have a feature that allows the administrator to state how many passwords the application should remember until a password can be reused. Think, for example, a maximum of 10 password that the application must remember.

                        • User folders sorted by department or server group

                          I got asked by a colleague if it is possible to sort the Users because he had about 60+ Users in the Direct Messages section.

                          It would be nice if you can sort it by a specified department (or Position) or that you can create User groups (with specific permissions for example) and that they get sorted in categories like this.

                          An other way could be that everyone can create custom folders with users in it and can expand it if needed.

                          • 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.

                              I'd like to somehow tune the color scheme of the Mattermost to separate private chats from channels. First idea that I got my mind is that maybe there could be an option to set a different background color for private conversations?

                              • Add Button Message like Slack does

                                On Slack, Bots can interact with users by adding UX elements within the message as you can see there : https://api.slack.com/docs/message-buttons

                                This would be an awesome feature to have in Mattermost.

                                • search by date

                                  Some Mattermost instances have many channels and a crazy number of posts, leading to searches on terms returning too many results. It would be good to be able to search by date range. For example, gmail uses after:yyyy-mm-dd before:yyyy-mm-dd and probably other date formats to enable searching by date.

                                  • Teammate name display selections

                                    Would it be possible to add custom selection of username, nickname and full name to teammate name display? This would make it possible to use combinations like John Doe (Johnny-boy) or John Doe (johnd).

                                    • Automated configuration data for /slash command

                                      How about allowing for a special parameter ?getslashinfo=1 or something return the various fields that need to be filled in in the Slash Command configuration.

                                      Add a button "Fetch" to the right of the Request URL and if clicked, MM goes to retrieve Display Name, Description, Request Method, Autocomplete Hint and Autocomplete description fields.

                                      Even if the user gets it back in the wrong language, it'll be easy to translate to the local language. Reponse username and icon should obviously not be allowed to be fetched like this, nor the trigger word.

                                      A second parameter could be sent with getslashinfo=1,…

                                      • Touchbar integration

                                        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?

                                        • Switch the status color indicator to the background of the icon

                                          User icons are okay now on the left side list but would it be even more clear to switch the icon color to white and change the background color for the status? Please check the link for a demo:
