  2. Implement changing channel ownership

    There is currently no method for changing the owner of a channel.


    • A channel owner should be able to assign ownership of their channel to another user

    • Team admins and System Admins should be able to assign ownership of any channel to another user

  3. Enable export and import of Display Settings

    Similar to theme export/import, have UI under display settings that lets you export and import font, language, themes and other options under Account Settings > Display based on a piece of text that can be copied and pasted from an input box

  4. Create a "already used tags" drop down menu when typing # , based on the already used hashtags

    To preserve or moderate a given thread , theme or channel, tagging them makes the search much easier afterwards. But to make sure, that the given hashtags will be the same (tag cloud?), by typing # a dropdown should show up with already used tags. Behavior could be the same lile with @ or :(for smileys!).

  5. 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

  7. Define Global Custom/Default Themes

    Currently the default themes available to users are hardcoded in the mattermost source. I would love to be able to define a default theme with a particular color scheme that differs from what is available in the base Mattermost install.

  8. 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.

  9. should implement an admin interface to the System Console to make the server auto update to the latest MM release

    It would be great to make admins life easier to develop an auto admin function to Mattermost that on click downloads, installs and updates the given installation, so the admin doesn't need terminal or root access anymore. Especially renewing the config (put the existing entries in the new/extended config) would be helpful.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  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. System Admin should be able to force displaying of users real name (prename and surname! not nickname or username!)

    In some environments it would be very usefull for the participants to be able to clearly identify a user. This is not necessarily the case, if nicknames (or even usernames) can be choosed by the users themself to be displayed in Mattermost channels.
    Therefore an administrator should be able to force the displayed name to display the prename and surname within the chat history window to minimize an users anonymity. This may be also related to a forced disclosure of prename and surname during the registration process.

  16. way to turn off emoticons?

    from https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/1982, Skype etc. allow you to turn off emoticons, so that you get the raw text input instead of the converted smiley face. Not everyone appreciates chat filled with emoji, so it'd be a nice feature to have emoticon rendering a setting people can turn on or off (note that this is about MM-conversion of one an ASCII sequence into an emoticon. If someone types an actual unicode emoji, then that's what they intended to type. But if someone types a colon, a dash, and a closing parenthesis, they did not type a smiley icon, and not everyone…

  17. 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.

  18. Administrator should be able to change the profile settings of an user

    An Administrator should be able to change the profile settings of an user (i.e. changing the user picture,user Name or first/last name)
    Also, an administrator should be able to prevent users from being able to changing these options. (policies)

  19. FreeBSD support

    It would be great it mattermost is supported in FreeBSD.
    I think in order to support more OS, specially BSD unixes, mattermost should not depend from Docker.
    For instance Docker doesn't well supported on FreeBSD.

  20. 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…
