  1. Make search work as it should.

    Currently, search is horribly broken for technical conversations. For example, given a post which contains a log message, such as:


    PROBLEM srvnagios at 10.4.1.74/MYSQL_threads-connected is WARNING

    A search for MYSQL will not show this as a result. This is, certainly, just an example and it's been relayed that this is by design due to a lack of support for preceding wildcards (which shouldn't be needed anyway). Simply typing MYSQL in the text box should return any string that contains MYSQL or mysql.

  2. Option to have different themes on different devices

    As of now, a change of theme on one device is automatically synched to all other devices.

  3. make threads collapsible

    A toggle option so that threads appear as "N comments" and open in the side-panel, so they do not interrupt the main flow of the channel, and you can follow each thread mode easily.

  4. Separate storage limit per team

    I'm hosting a single team installation for 2 local charities (each has their own team). It would be great to be able to set a separate storage limit per team. In small situations like this it's not necessary to run 2 instances of mattermost. but this setup is only manageable if we can specify a limit per team.

  5. 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…

  6. Add ability to move mistaken thread replies in a channel to the intended thread

    If a user misses replying to a thread in a channel and instead replies directly to the channel, this message is not part of the thread that it was intended to be and the conversation is not clear.

    There should be a way for a user or channel admin to move a message to the intended thread inside the channel and keep it inline with the on-going threaded conversation (since everything is timestamped this seems possible).

    This would clean up the conversations and mistakes that users will make.

  7. File Archieving Feature

    I suggest to have a file archieving service that will move old files to an archive repository.
    If the user tries to access an archieved file, the server must be clever enough to recover that file from the archive repository.


    • Archive repository could be cloud server or a NAS with FTP service.

    • Upload files to archive repository whenever the file repository is full or the files are too old(set by the admin. I think 1 month old is enough).

    • Download files from archive repository will be slower. That’s fine this is an economical solution.

    • Archive repository is not mandatory, it…

  8. Video File Thumbnails

    Just like we have tumbnails on pictures. helping us identify what we are looking for without having to open the preview tool.
    It would be great if we could have thumbnails on videos too.

  10. Limit number of times animated emoji will loop

    When users have their mattermost window open all the time, animated emoji that are endlessly looping can be very distracting and annoying. If they paused after looping a set number of times, it would greatly improve the user experience for me.

  12. Option in a channel: force view pinned posts

    In some channels some messages are ‘must read’...
    An option ‘I have read this one’ would be great then.
    It would also be nice to be able to reorder the pinned posts.

  13. Embed Calender, etc

    It would be nice if there would be the possibility to create channels in which you could fix an embed content in the upper area. E.g. a Google calendar which shows the weekly overview or an external service for data storage etc..

    Alternatively, a bot that writes the Daily Todos in a channel like slack would be possible: https://get.slack.help/hc/de/articles/206329808-Google-Kalender-f%C3%BCr-Slack

  14. Delete messages from a channel to clean it

    Hello,

    in the case a channel is used to receive notifications in a defined interval, messages are bound to multiply and to be too numerous.

    So i think it should be interesting to delete the messages from a channel by the creator of this channel or by a webhook.

  15. one file installation on hosted servers

    The installation should be only depending on a ftp-access to a hosted server storing data in flat files. Second best would be mysql connection.

  16. Add an API for getting private channels

    As a system admin using the API, it would be useful to get a list of private channels for a team.

    Currently, one can get posts for private channels through the channels/{channel_id}/posts API, but that assumes that the admin knows the channel_id. Finding that ID cannot be done through the API.

    Use case: for reporting purposes, we want to get the count of messages per private channel each month.

  18. Include private channels to search based on current user membership

    Make Mattermost API channels search method
    ( /teams/{team_id}/channels/search )
    to include private channels where the current user is a member.

    E.g. if the user A is a member of channel B and user A performs channel search, it will get channel B in a response from server if B matches the term.

    In Mattermost 5.5.0 search returns only public channels in results. The only way to find channel by display name is to get all channels current user is a member of and iterate over them on client side.

  19. Add "edited by admin" when admin edit someone's message

    Team admin can edit users messages (when option is available) but it can be usefull to specify when it's not the user himself that edit, but an admin.

    Proposal: add "(edited by admin)" instead of "(edited")

  20. Email notification for any activity (without mention)

    Currently, the notification system allows:


    • Getting browser desktop notification for any activity

    • Getting email notification for mentions

    I'd like to have the mix: get email notification for any activity when I'm not logged-in. Many systems allow this (eg. gitter's "You have unread messages" emails), but I couldn't find it in Mattermost.

    Ideally, the system would :


    • Wait a few minutes before sending the notification, to send a mail containing several messages at once.

    • Send only one notification even if there are further messages, to avoid flooding the mailbox with tons of emails

    This would be very useful to follow low…
