  1. Quote Reply In Threads

    In a thread, because we cant create subthreads, the comment menu should have a new item called "quote reply".

    "Quote Reply" should allow the user to add a new comment with reference from the comment he is replying.

    A : I like cars.
    A : Wanna go for pizza? <-- "Quote Reply"
    B : I like Ferrari.
    B : "Wanna go for pizza?"

     Yes. Pizza is a great idea.

  2. Directory of public channels/channels I can have access to

    A user should be able to easily see & search the list of all channels they have joined and can join. I'm seeing a number of duplicate channels created across teams because the user did not know it existed in another location.

  3. API: Add new_msg_count to /users/me/teams/{{team_id}}/channels/members

    Currently you need to make two calls to get the total count of unread messages or to get the count of unread messages from a single channel (/users/me/teams/{{team_id}}/channels and /users/me/teams/{{team_id}}/channels/members).

    To avoid the first request, it would be nice to have a new property e.g. new_msg_count that returns the current new message count for a channel. This is currently only possible by substracting the msg_count (second request) from the total_msg_count (first request).

    This topic has already been discussed on github: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/8591#issuecomment-383909505

  4. add newlines with CTRL+ENTER (like in Slack and Skype)

    this is the opposite of the current setting:
    ENTER inserts a new line and CTRL+ENTER submits the message.

  6. 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.

    We’re very excited to share that we’ve begun design work on this project and are currently testing prototypes with the Mattermost community and some customers, with development starting soon after. We will be rolling out the threading changes in stages, starting with an experimental configuration setting that can be enabled by System Admins.

    If you haven’t already, we encourage joining the Folded Reply Threads channel (https://community.mattermost.com/core/channels/folded-reply-threads) on our community server as we share progress updates and gather feedback.

  7. Disable the "More Actions" tooltip when the menu is already open

    On the [...] button on the right side of a message, there's a tooltip displaying the text "More Actions". When I click on this button, the menu pops up and then the tooltip appears, blocking the "Edit" menu item. The tooltip should never be allowed to pop up if the menu is already open.

    Firefox, Mattermost Version: 5.6.2

  8. transform message to into an answer to message above

    people are often sloppy in using answers to messages and just type it to the channel when it should be an answer to the message above.
    I propose a button visible to the author and admins that allows to transform a message into an answer to the message above.
    I hope it'll help to create more consistency in the usage of the answer/thread feature.

  10. More Granular Session lengths for SSO authentication

    Currently the configurations for SSO authentication session lengths allow for a single digit value representing days that the authenticated session will last before expiring and forcing a re-authentication.

    There has been quite a bit of interest within my teams to have this more granular, specifically down to a number of hours (with our preference being somewhere around the length of a work day- 8hours). By doing something less than a single day, with people having varying schedules, it would guarantee that almost everyone will need to re-authenticate when coming back to work. As is, it can happy sporadically depending on…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
