  1. Use clocks to easily create and view threads

    This feature is really usefull to identify and follow different conversations in a channel.
    When you click on a clock, it adds the clock in the beginning of the post (or at the position of the cursor).
    When you hover on a clock in a post, it highlights the referring post and the answers to this post.

    You can see a demo there : http://sveetch.net/tribune/

  2. Asynchronous uploads (that do not block chatting)

    Right now, when you upload a larger sized file you are blocked from chatting until the upload finishes.

    It would be nice if the upload is handled separately so you can continue sending new chats while the upload is processed. Slack does this too.

  3. no character length of name when display is set to "real name"

    Now it is set to 24(?)

    For example "Mansoor Nahasapeemapetilon" would be displayed as "Mansoor Nahasapeemapetil..."

    There is enough space to display the whole name.

  4. Option to show integration username overrides in push notifications

    When push notifications get sent they show up as my username for my integrations (username posted to channel). It would be great if the notifications showed username overrides instead or there was an option to do so, "Nagios posted to channel".

  6. Provide an option to show the amount of new messages in a channel

    Actually we can see our amout of new mention in a channel, is it possible to do same thing with new messages ?

    I think the bold text for new messages isn't visible enough, with a sort of buble like mentions it can be more visible.

  7. Add user_real_name to outgoing slash commands or webhooks

    An outgoing /slash command from mattermost sends information including the token, userid and username in the POST.

    We would also like to see userrealname in the POST, without having to do another API call.

    For example:

    channelid=cniah6qa73bjjjan6mzn11f4ie&
    channel
    name=town-square&
    command=/somecommand&
    responseurl=not+supported+yet&
    team
    domain=someteam&
    teamid=rdc9bgriktyx9p4kowh3dmgqyc&
    text=hello+world&
    token=xr3j5x3p4pfk7kk6ck7b4e6ghh&
    user
    id=c3a4cqe3dfy6dgopqt8ai3hydh&
    username=freddy
    user
    real_name=Fred+Smith

  9. extend the "Manage Members" console to delete and configure a users profile

    In some cases it could happen that a profile is broken or an administrator wants to completely remove a user from the system. (one example could be that an account was hacked an the system was fully spammed with senseless messages. Another example could be a test user and its messages).
    An administrator should therefore be able to completely remove all arrears of such a users from the system. Furthermore he should be able to manage a user Profile to be able to disable notifications as an attendee or insert Profile Pictures to accounts.

  10. include a Trace option in the logging modes.

    We were having an issue that was causing Mattermost to continually crash for no apparently reason. Nothing was consistent in the log files, debug didn't give enough information, heck I even did an strace on the PID and wasn't able to get anything useful. A Trace option should include DB calls, perhaps a transaction ID to link the API call to the DB call...

  11. improve profile images by offering arbitrary size with cropping/centering

    from https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/1981, Currently you have to click a button in order to select and image, and it has to be a rectangular image already. Instead, it makes sense to do things more like twitter or flickr, where you can either click-to-browse or just drag-and-drop an image onto the UI, and then the UI gives you the option to crop and scale, so you can pick any image and then just select the rectangular subsection you want to have act as your profile picture.

  12. make administrators get a notification when new channels were created

    When users create new channels, there currently seems to be no notification emails send to administrators neither when a new channel is added nor who this channel added. This prevents administrators from being informed proactively about misbehaviours of users (i.e. if users create non corporate/private information exchanges on the system). A moderator feature would be very appreciated to help the IT securing itself and not having to explain the CEO why there is a public channel for exchanging illegal content, for example.

  13. Secure direct messages using TextSecure/Axolotl algorithms

    Secure direct messages (and may be messages in private groups) using TextSecure/Axolotl algorithms. Unlike OTR protocol this will enable sending secure offline messages. I think TextSecure library could be used https://github.com/janimo/textsecure

  14. add support for syslog output

    It's a pain to deal with many scattered logfiles, so syslog support would be a welcome alternative.
    The only extra configuration despite enabling, and the loglevel should be the syslog facility.

  15. make an admin be able to differ between inactive and disabled users

    The problem of the current situation is, that an administrator yet is only able to set an user account status to "inactive". This means more a disabling of the user, because the user is in no longer able to log in. In fact, he is locked out.
    It would be more appropriate to rename the status "inactive" to "disabled".

    A new status "inactive" should be introduced where a user is in fact using the featureset of a "team edition". No license is acuired for this user and he doesn't get any push notifications anymore until he logs in again. By…

  16. Link go binary statically

    Official docker library images are moving to alpine: https://www.brianchristner.io/docker-is-moving-to-alpine-linux/ There are many good reasons to follow.

    Alpine is statically linked and uses musl instead of glibc. The current release builds are not completely statically linked. In theory it should be really easy; replace

    go build

    with

    CGO_ENABLED=0 go build

  17. Sync between redundant servers

    In 2015, GitHub user titanous proposed adding support for more than one instance of the API server. (https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/402) It was suggested that it would be added before the 1.0 release, but the issue has since been closed without any changes. Since I didn't see this feature requested in this forum, I thought I would post it so that the community can vote on it.
    I work with a team of five, all of whom have personal servers, one of which hosts our Mattermost instance. It would be useful for us if we could host as many as five…

  18. nano editor

    Some of us prefer nano over vi. It can't be that big of a deal to include nano in the container, can it?

  19. enable other databases, e.g. Oracle.

    Having support for other databases, e.g. Oracle, is crucial as this is common infrastructure in enterprise IT landscapes.

  20. 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.
