  1. 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.

  2. 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)

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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).

  7. 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.

  8. 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?

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  12. global/common channel across teams

    Add the ability for teams to share "global" channels.

    We have multiple teams but have a need for a common channel across all teams.

  13. Polls (like doodle or for decision making)

    Creating and participating in Polls would be great,
    to be embedded within a message.
    Like in Doodle, Facebook or Threema:

    Option | User1 | User2 | ...

    Coke | x | |
    Sprite | x | x |
    ...

    OR

    Option | Votes

    Coke | 3/15 Users
    Sprite | 2/15 Users
    ...

  14. Loop GIFs on mouseover

    The GIF preview feature is great, but a channel full of looping gifs is visually distracting.

    Discord's implementation of this functionality plays the GIF once, then repeats it on mouseover. This works really well and would be a nice polish to the current implementation.

  15. Read Receipts: Implement a visual indication for messages if and when they have been read by other users of the channel

    Sometimes one's wondering if a post has already been read by other users. I could image that a member list of the channel pops up when one is selecting the read status from the particular post menu ("[..]").
    In private chats, a sinple check sign (similar to whatsapp) could signalize if a message had beend read by your counterpart.

    Read receipts are not currently planned, but the feature is under consideration. Read receipts raise concerns about privacy, needing consideration of config settings, end user settings, and appropriate defaults to ensure we can create a good user experience whether Admins or users prefer to enable this feature or not. In addition, since read receipts involve heavy effort in testing and maintenance, we have not prioritized the investigation of this feature over our current initiatives. However, the feature is included in our regular roadmap planning process and we certainly appreciate the upvotes on the feature request to guide us in that process.

  16. Implement Automatic Right-To-Left (RTL)

    Most popular text editors change the text direction automatically to RTL (Rgiht to Left) when you enter a text in RTL languages such as Persian, Arabic or Hebrew. If that was the case in the Mattermost, we (the RTL language speaking people!) could use Mattermost much more productively, and localization to Farsi, Arabic, etc was possible.

  17. Allow message attachments to generate mentions

    SUMMARY

    Notifications are not being generated for user names in message attachments (in my case specifically in fields) that are generated via a webhook.

    STEPS TO REPRODUCE

    Create a new message containing attachments/fields via a web hook. Include the name of the user in the attachment field. The name will not be recognized and tagged.

    EXPECTED BEHAVIOUR

    Mattermost would recognize a user's name, as defined in their notification preferences, when mentioned in a message that has an attachment/fields. Notifications would be generated for the user the same as if they are mentioned in a regular message.

  18. Use a different color thread bar for different threads

    When there are multiple threads going on in the same channel, all lines are prefixed by a grey vertical bar. The only way to separate the threads is to read the reference message. If the vertical bars had different colors (randomly selected), it would be easy to at a glance see which messages belongs to which threads.

  19. Team initials

    Ability to change team initials / short name.

    For example if your teams start with the same prefix, the initials are going to be the same for all of them.

    Furthermore you may want to set it manually, or if the name is made of multiple words, use the first letter of each word as initials.

    This is also related to https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/15465123-team-icon

    Idea is to be able to differentiate teams easier :)

    I also don't know about mobile apps, but in the web version on desktop the initials could potentially include up to 4 characters.

  20. send message later

    I'd find it realy useful to be able to send a message later at a given date and time (e.g. like Buffer).
    Often, I'd find some useful or interesting info I want to post to the team chat at off-hours, and the message could either be overlooked because the timestamp will be quite old during work hours, or I'd disturb team members who have hot keywords defined and get notified automatically.
