  1. History of shared files in a channel

    Would be lovely to view the files that have been shared in a channel. This would go neatly with the idea of pinning posts as well. You could be able to pin files.

  2. Restricted channels with a join policy

    Currently all you can have in Mattermost is public channels (joinable by everyone in the team) and private channels (not visible in any listing, and you need to be added).

    The problem is that sometimes you want to have a private discussion where e.g. everyone from the IT department is allowed to participate. Currently you would have to add your whole department to such a channel (which is spammy, especially since you cannot hide any channels from your sidebar without leaving them).

    It would be nice if it was possible to mark a channel as restricted. Such a channel would…

  4. 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 "> "

  5. Add user profiles and text boxes

    It would be great if there was a way to expand profiles to include boxes where users could host information. This might include: location, about me, skills, experience, links to external sites and portfolios, or active tasks engaged with. If there is already a way to do this it would be great to know. Thanks!

  7. emoji reaction keyboard shortcut

    This was my most used shortcut in another messaging app that starts with an S and ends with an ack.

    Also to then be able to select emoji with arrow keys and enter is crucial. Would even go a step beyond if shift enter allowed you to pick more than one emoji reaction! #Mindblown

  8. 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.

  9. Create an editable message ('wikipost')

    Our team documents project features by posting and re-editing posts. (They can then be flagged, or in future, made sticky, to keep them at hand.)

    What would be useful here is to make a post that I choose to allow others to edit, in a wiki or confluence-style.

  10. channel profile images

    Support avatar icons for channels.

    it would be great if the service and apps provided a similar API and UX to allow profile images to be assigned and queried for a channel.
    This might work similarly to what is in place for users, where the Mattermost API supports getting a profile image for a user, except this request would provide profile image by channel.

  11. hide offline contacts

    It would be nice to have an option, that enables the user to hide contacts that are currently offline.
    This would mainly apply to the "direct messages".
    It is really annoying to search through a long list (~50) of contacts you often need to chat with, when about 50% are currently offline and are therefore of no interest at the moment.

  12. collapse [-] PUBLIC CHANNELS

    We use the favorite channels and direct messages, and therefore would like to collapse the public channels. Then channels with unread messages would only be shown.

    [-] PUBLIC CHANNELS +
    0 Project X (2)
    0 Project Y
    0 Project Z

    [+] PUBLIC CHANNELS +
    0 Project X (2)

  13. Add the option to increase font size

    Currently the web interface has no option to increase the font size. This is plainly silly. Please fix this ASAP.

  14. Add support for SQL Server

    Most enterprises medium or larger have SQL Server licenses and supporting infrastructure (DBA team, servers, backup/recovery scripts, etc.) already established.

    Support for SQL Server would be very helpful so we can leverage what we have in-house already.

  15. Allow adding custom words to user and/or team dictionaries.

    Words not in the stock dictionaries are always marked as errors; there's no way around it.

  16. Have "Unread" option showing all unread messages and notifications across all channels

    Slack has something similar that shows above all channels. It makes it easy to browse through your unread messages without having to click each channel separately.

  17. Clone slack's code snippet feature.

    Clone slack's code snippet feature.

    I think this is different from
    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/12927891-code-snippet-with-preview
    Which gives more detailed explanation at the ends.

    It is also a little different from
    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/15495801-add-a-one-click-action-to-create-a-new-snippet
    In that not requesting to do away with fences, just want the slack snippet feature.

    Thanks!

  18. 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).

  19. Visual effect to separate private chats from channels

    I'd like to somehow tune the color scheme of the Mattermost to separate private chats from channels. First idea that I got my mind is that maybe there could be an option to set a different background color for private conversations?

  20. Allow webhooks to trigger other webhooks posts

    From: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/1901

    Outgoing webhooks are not triggered by other webhooks posts. For example if bota posts "hello" on Town Square and botb is typically triggered by "hello", it will not be triggered.

    If this was implemented, the danger is creating cycles unintentionally, so there should be a way to avoid that.
