  1. Allow selecting and deleting multiple messages at once

    Allow Channel Admins to be able to enter "select" or "edit" mode where checkboxes appear next to the messages.
    Admins would be able to select messages one by one or to select a range of messages by clicking the first one, holding Shift button and selecting the last one (like we've used from other software).

    After selecting multiple messages, Admins would be able to delete them at once, or perform any other action that might be implemented during the development (move, archive, flag, something else).

    This feature would make it a lot easier to delete whole bunches of off-topic messages…

    • member list

      Member list on side of chat window w/ status indicator

      Show a member list on the side of the chat window listing all the users that are in the current room, sorted by status and then name (so that logged out users are at the bottom).

      This seems critical to communication .. who's in the room, who's online, who am I talking to, am I in the right room before typing @everyone, etc. At a glance. The little member button with drop down is insufficient especially in rooms with hundreds of people.

      This is a repost, but the original is…

      • Configurable desktop notifications duration

        Mattermost is intended to be team collaboration and messaging tool.
        It functions fine when working with channels which are similar to forums or IRC channels.

        But when sending direct messages, the user experience is quite bad because desktop notifications disappear after 5 seconds and when user is concentrating to something else or is AFK he will miss the notification and doesn't know that someone is trying to reach him.

        It would be great if there was a configuration option where user can choose how long the notification should be displayed.

        This feature was already implemented in v3.4, but was removed…

        • Make emoji replacement a separate option from the rest of post formatting

          I consider it unacceptable that I can't choose to disable having my words replaced with emoji, without also having to give up on EVERY SINGLE post formatting feature. I want to be able to use post formatting, just NOT have any emoji appear without me explicitly choosing to insert them.

          • Add a button to scroll all the way to first new message

            When rejoining a conversation after many new messages have been posted, if you want to catch up on what you missed, you have to scroll up to the top, click the 'load more messages' button, scroll up to the top, click 'load more messages, ad nauseum, till eventually you reach a point where the "New Messages" line is no longer at the top, then scroll back down till you find the "New Messages" line again.

            I think it would be very useful if there was a button (I would name it "load new messages") that appeared along with the 'load…

            • End-to-end (e2e) encryption support

              This would require major architectural changes for the Mattermost server, but adding some use cases to gather feedback from the community.

              Server admins wouldn't be able to read the content of conversations because they don't hold the keys to decrypt, which means users wouldn't have to worry about
              - Server admins spying on their private conversations
              - Governments subpoening server admins into handing over conversations
              - Hackers taking control of the server being able to read the conversations

              • implement threads in slack import tool

                implement threads in slack import tool.

                right now, threaded messages lose their context when imported. they just become normal messages and not replies to other messages.

                https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/10203

                https://api.slack.com/docs/message-threading

                in slack, replies are standalone objects. it works via a `thread_ts` (thread timestamp) attribute. `thread_ts` refers to the `ts` (timestamp) of the parent post. if a post has `thread_ts` == `ts`, then it is the beginning of a thread.

                possible approach:
                import all posts except for ones where `thread_ts` != `ts` (as these are replies to other posts). once that's done, go back and import the replies since their parents will have…

                • Allow resizing and hiding of sidebar

                  It would be nice to be able to click/drag the sidebar (where channels are) and resize it/ hide it if desired.

                  Resizing it and having a channel name abbreviated with ... could make sense;

                  ex: Town Square once it starts getting cut off would become Tow... (depending on how small you make the sidebar). Then if you go over far enough it snaps into a hidden position

                  • Show nicknames on each line while in compact mode

                    There should be an option to show the nickname on each line, when using compact mode. As a long-time IRC user, I expect to have the name repeated on each line.
                    This is specially annoying when the "New Messages" marker shows, where it should ALWAYS show the name in the line following the marker.

                      • Voice Messages Record and Play

                        The same way we can send messages, we should be able to send voice messages.

                        It should be as simple as click "add voice", record what you want, press send and it's made available on the server for others to listen.

                        It should be supported by browser and mobile client apps.

                        • unlimited search results

                          for the default search backend (sql), search results are capped at 100!

                          you can verify this by loading jquery and doing:

                          $('.search-item__container').length;

                          you can see that paging isn't supported:

                          https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/app/post.go#L821

                          and the sql uses `LIMIT 100`:

                          https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/store/sqlstore/post_store.go#L834

                          i know this isn't an issue in enterprise because you're using elasticsearch, but please either bring elasticsearch to team edition or fix the default search backend. 100 results is sad :(

                          • Add context menu for messages on desktop client

                            The same menu that shows when clicking the "..." icon to the right, including reactions and reply, should appear when right-clicking on any given message.

                            It is a major usability inconvenient when using a large screen, to have to move the mouse all the way to the right edge of the screen in order to click that.

                            • Add a command /play to play sound, movies quotes, etc.

                              We use Mattermost in a small team and when it comes the time to chill out, we sometimes abuse of the #random channel
                              We loved the emoticon customization and we would love to see the possibility to send a sound to react to a message with the right movie quote for example.

                              That could be a plugin with a command like /play, I just doubt that the plugin would have the right to play a sound in browser.

                              The sound (and the command) could be created by users just like emoticons. The user should have to upload a sound file…

                              • Add a feature to create custom command alias within Mattermost client

                                We would like a feature to allow leveraging slash command integrations so that users could create custom aliases locally. For instance, one of our integration commands is '/zoom' with additional arguments of 'join' and '<meeting ID>'. We would like to be able to create a custom alias so that a user could always include the arguments along with the slash command without entering 'join' and their 'meeting ID' each time they use the integration.

                                  • CMD/CTRL+number should switch teams

                                    Hitting CMD+1 should select the first team, CMD+2 should select the next etc. (I guess this translates to ctrl on Linux / Windows).

                                    Right now its a lot of mouse movement to switch between teams.

                                    • Delayed messages (/echo) should have longer delay than 10000 seconds

                                      You can delay a message for 5 seconds with this syntax:
                                      /echo "This multiline message
                                      is delayed" 5

                                      Today the delay limit is 10000 seconds (~2 hours 45 minutes). This is to short. This should be increased to at least a few days, but why not a week or more (so the message is sent after the vacation is over)?

                                      Sometimes when you got a message, you don't want to disturb the receiver at this time (e.g. in weekends or in vacations) or you got a better strategic moment to submit an idea. Then it would be very handy to…

                                        • Desktop: Auto-hide menubar on Linux

                                          Most Electron apps on Linux have an option to autohide the menubar, typically in the View or Window menus. Mattermost would fit in better if it did, too.
