  1. Crtl+K CMD+K searching thru channels

    After realization of idea https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/17042614-crtl-k-cmd-k-faster-jumping-to-the-channel (it's great, thanks!) the new idea is to allow user to find channels from 'more channels' using ctrl+K or CMD+K shortcut.
    It'll be very useful to find channels where i'm not in but they are somewhere.
    Right now if channel is not on my channel list the search tool won't find it and there is a problem - users starting to make a copies of the same threads

    • On login don't display teams if only one is available

      When login in mattermost it shows "Your teams" that I must select to go to "Town Square".

      If only one team is available, it should skip this screen and go immediately to that team's Town Square

      • Option for channel specific push notifications

        Currently, posh notifications across multiple channels are automatically stacked into a single notification card.

        This makes it very difficult to keep tabs on active conversations happening across multiple subscribed channels when the app is it if focus.

        • Keyboard shortcut to close right hand sidebar (RHS) making it easier to close replies

          Add a keyboard shortcut to close the right hand sidebar (RHS) making it easier to exit replies and go back to the main channel.

          • Strip markdown from browser notifications

            Currently all my browser notifications contain markdown syntax. Since the browser (and desktop) notifications don't support markdown this leads to pretty much unreadable notifications, especially when used with one of the numerous integrations that for example post Github notifications into Mattermost containg links to commits and PRs or avatar images of the author. While it looks very pretty in Mattermost it makes browser/desktop notifications almost unusable.

            The solution to this would be to just strip all messages of the contained markdown (e.g. links/images) before they are being forwarded to the browser/os to be displayed as a notification.

            I couldn't find…

            • Keep red-dot-notifications in tray when receiving a message with MM-client in background

              Found behavior (Windows 10): MM-client is in the background (e.g. when reading stuff in another window) and I receive a direct message, then the red dot in the tray appears just to disappear directly after, IF the last opened channel was the one where I got the message. Somehow the app doesn't recognize that it is not in focus and thinks the message has been read.
              Due to this we missed some communication as we "lose" red circles indicating new messages. Tried several notification-configurations but no luck so far.
              Thanks a lot for helpful ideas or a fix!

              • Allow Team Admins to see statistics for their Team

                Currently only System Admins can see individual team statistics information but it would be helpful to allow team admins to see their own team's statistics.

                • Add option to set multi-team team or server-wide display defaults

                  Add an option to allow changing of the default "Display" settings from the System Console. (E.g set Theme & Teammate Name default "Display" settings globally).

                      • Desktop Notification should allow to answer right away (Desktop App, macOS)

                        On macOS, Desktop Notifications can offer a "Reply" Button in order to allow a user to answer to a message right from the received notification, which is very handy. I wish to have this feature in the Mattermost Desktop app as some of my users have used Hipchat before and they complain this feature is not available in Mattermost.

                          Just like slack, user should be able to send message or attachments to him/herself. This feature is helpful to take some notes or testing message format etc.

                            Every time I try to open the mobile app I am greeted with a long showing white screen before the client even starts to load, I was hoping this could be speed up. Right now I am driven to using the windows client, but use on the go would be very nice.

                            • The displaying of @-mentions should follow "Teammate Name Display" setting

                              We have a GitLab-Linked Mattermost Instance but our user database is an LDAP directory with alphanumeric keys as User-IDs. We cannot change our User IDs. While I know my user-id, I don't know anybody else's (and they don't know mine), so we get lost in conversations where people are mentioning alphanumeric user-ids back and forth.

                              Once the message is posted, the displaying of the mention should follow the Teammate Name Display setting. So instead of "Hi, @usr523", we should see "Hi, @Bob".

                              • when typing code with ```, Enter should not send the message

                                In _Advanced Preferences_ in Slack there is an option that allows the [enter] behavior to change while in a code block (```).

                                It would be nice to have this in mattermost.

                                    • Treat post selection as a reply

                                      It is a constant struggle to keep all relevant messages associated to a thread. People don't see the reply icon or understand its significance. I'm not sure how to best solve that whole problem, but it'd help to make the concept of a reply more prominent if selecting a post is the equivalent of clicking the arrow icon.

                                      • Remind me Later

                                        Slack offers a very cool possibility: you can ask the bot to remind you of a message after some time.

                                        This is *extremely useful* when you post a message which requires some reaction by some other users - if (unfortunately) no reaction comes, it is very easy to forget about the question, which will not happen if you set a reminder!

                                        That would be a very nice feature to add to mattermost

                                          Markup to directly navigate to the ticket on Redmine, a small overview of the ticket as well. For example, when I refer to a ticket I use #ticket_no. This could be parsed by the parser and replaced by an href that points to the ticket
