  1. 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")

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. unlimited search results

    for the default search backend (sql), search results are capped at 100!

    you can verify this by loading jquery and doing:

    $('.search-item__container').length;

    you can see that paging isn't supported:

    https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/app/post.go#L821

    and the sql uses LIMIT 100:

    https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/store/sqlstore/post_store.go#L834

    i know this isn't an issue in enterprise because you're using elasticsearch, but please either bring elasticsearch to team edition or fix the default search backend. 100 results is sad :(

  6. 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

  7. Push-to-Talk

    While "texting", I would like to be able to transmit an ad hoc sound bite, so that I can quickly verbalize something without having to start a call session - not store-and-forward, but immediate live voice, Star Trek comm badge style.

    I'm glad I ran into you guys in Punta Cana!

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Set user position when user create, in Command Line Tools

    The option 'user create' in the Command Line Tools is email, firstname, lastname, locale, nickname, password, username, system_admin. There is no "position".
    I would like an option to set "position".

  12. rename flag post to bookmarked post

    Users seem to expect that "Flag post" means "Report post" and do not think of it as a way to bookmark posts.

    Especially as in the web-app "flag post" is not displayed along the other post-actions, but instead by the side of the posting username.

    I already filed that as a github issue: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/9990

  13. Auto converted date time

    In cases of a international team managing time zone is often difficult. It would be great if Mattermost supported some kind of timezone conversion. A user can choose his timezone in settings and when posting dates or times in a chat, a special syntax, probably something along the lines of (12:00 PM) would be required. The clients will auto convert the time to local users timezone while displaying. This could be an opt-in feature.

  14. Notify Modified Messages And Added Reactions

    There should be an option to allow MM to send notifications wheneven user modifies a message or maybe even when a message is deleted.

  15. 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.

  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.

  17. Galera cluster support

    Galera cluster provides multi master SQL database (e.g. upon MariaDB or MySQL) and can help strengthen the database backend. As it easy to deal with mattermost-server outages (simply run another instance very quickly), it is mostly painfull to deal with single DB outage.

    Galera cluster can be supported in a direct way - add all db nodes to the configuration and use it in balanced way or as a fallback - or can be used via haproxy or similar.

  18. Support moving channel without adding all members to new team first

    Currently when moving a channel with CLI you must first manually add all users to new team. The CLI should automatically add missing users to new team when moving channel.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
