  1. Sub-comment

    Hi,

    please implement this code to all CSS templates:

    .post.same--root.post--comment, .post.same--root.same--user.post--comment {
    padding-left: 4em;
    }

    so chat look like this:

    We are using it some time, and chat is more clear to read.

    Many thanks.

    Miroslav

      • 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.

        • allow multiple users to edit a post

          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.

          • Read Only Channel for FAQs and administrative communication to the team

            Please implement a read only channel permission solution. This will allow designated users with proper permissions to post in a given channel, but all others can read the channel. This will be helpful for communities that require FAQS or top-down communications.

              • 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)

                • add anchors to /help/* docs

                  Many "normal" users have problems writing markdown when chatting.
                  For example, my friend don't know how to add "In-line Images".
                  So, I want to send him a link to "In-line Images" section at https://chat.ohze.net/help/formatting
                  But I can't because "In-line Images" is not an anchor like, ex https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#stage-1-pm-review (auto added by github for headings in a markdown document)

                  • Notifications for replies in threads, and ability to follow/unfollow threads (like slack)

                    I wish there was a notification setting like in slack to enable the setting "Notify me about replies to threads I'm following"... and then the ability to opt-out of following threads (but following them is automatic for any threads that you start or comment on)

                    • Ability to modify attached files when editing a message

                      Currently, Mattermost provides the ability to edit a message after you have posted it.

                      However, there is no way to modify the file attachments via this editing process.

                      Recent use case: I uploaded the wrong file when posting a message. Ideally I would have been able to edit the post to correct the mistake, i.e. to remove the incorrect file and attach the one I meant to attach. However, I could find no way of doing this.

                      Luckily, in my case it was simply an old version of the document, and therefore not too big a problem. However, I am…

                      • Modify a user via CLI

                        Would be nice to have the ability to update/modify a user via the CLI. Similarly to create user, you are able to set their name, email, etc. It would be nice to be able modify those details of an existing user via the CLI or even UI. I've found some user's end up entering their names all lower case or some don't even enter their details.

                        • Add a whitelist which protocols should be linkified

                          See https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/7657 for details.
                          TL;DR: It's not very useful to convert e.g. `foo:bar` to a link.

                            • Rename mattermost to something shorter

                              Often times at work you talk about the messaging system. "I shared it on slack", "lets Skype later", kik, WhatsApp, upward, signal etc.. so a chat system can really benefit form a monosyllable name.

                              We could try to name it differently for our purposes but because there is mattermost branding in quite a few places including the desktop/mobile clients, the system would just end up having two names and get confusing when talking about it. Recompiling the apps and going thru the App Store route for just this purpose is overkill. So please consider picking a shorter and friendlier name…

                              • Private message with authorized members only

                                Hi, (I am new to this forum but I have installed Mattermost in my organization)

                                Is it possible to add a new choice in the administrative console in the option “Allow users to open private message channels with” to request permission to create private messages with members who use the platform.

                                Currently, the configuration choices are:

                                All members of the team
                                Any user on the Mattermost server
                                and I would like to add :

                                Only authorized members
                                To prevent all members from communicating privately without prior notice

                                Is it a good idea ?

                                • Make MFA part of the team edition

                                  Securing your chat server should not depend on the size of your wallet. I think there are enough other reasons for enterprises to pay for Mattermost (support plans, branding, LDAP). Allowing additional security to private persons, open source- and small teams would be awesome.

                                    Using various colors for nicknames improves readibility a lot!

                                    • Delete an user's private conversations

                                      In some cases we need to delete all private conversations from an old user but without deleting the user (so it doesn't break continuity in public conversations).
                                      We use an SQL query:
                                      SELECT DISTINCT Name FROM Channels INNER JOIN
                                      (SELECT Id FROM `Users` WHERE `Username` LIKE 'Foo')
                                      sub ON Name LIKE concat('%', sub.Id, '%');
                                      Then "platform channel delete" to delete the channels.

                                      But it would be much easier to have a CLI command that does this.

                                      • Add a /quote command

                                        Pasting a multi-paragraph block of text for quoting is currently frustrating, as you can't just type "> " and then paste and hit return, because if "\n\n" happens to exist in the block, it'll fall out of quote mode.

                                        Since we already have /code for code pastes (like HipChat), let's also go for /quote: you do "/quote <paste><enter>" and done.

                                        The implementation would be virtually identical to /code, just replace the 4 spaces with "> "
