  1. 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".

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  12. Voice Messages Record and Play

    The same way we can send messages, we should be able to send voice messages.

    It should be as simple as click "add voice", record what you want, press send and it's made available on the server for others to listen.

    It should be supported by browser and mobile client apps.

  13. User should be able to archive a thread

    Summary (Feature Request)

    As a Mattermost user (Manager/Admin of channel)

    I would like to close some discussion which is not needed anymore in the main channel (have been resolved)

    so that I can reduce the content noise in the channel content in the channel by displaying relevant content.

    Observed behavior (that appears unintentional)

    In any channel where there are a lot of people, there is always much noise. I would like to archive those threads which are not needed anymore and display the relevant content in the main view.

    Usually, it might be discussions which end with some result/agreement, but…

  14. API rate limiting whitelist

    It would be really helpful to be able to specify a whitelist of IPs or accounts that can bypass the API rate limit. For instance, I use the API to batch-create lots of user accounts, which generates a high volume of requests. Yet, I don't want to allow such a big volume for any user account/IP address, just for sysops and localhost. Would this be possible?

  16. 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.

  18. It would be great if the search for the field position was possible.

    i can't find any persons in channel or in personal messages by Position.

    For example i have 3 "web-developer" users, and 2 "c# developers", i can find then by FirstName, LastName, nickname but field "Position" is out of search.

    It would be great if the search for the field position was possible.
