  1. Read-only for external clients

    It would be great to send secure links of an private channel to a client for status updates.

    What i want to do is:
    I want to start a new channel and write status updates or some information about the progress of an project.
    External clients should be able to view this channel only and see what has been posted und get current state if they want.
    But they should not be forced to register a new account. (Read/view only).

  3. Policy for new account to change the initial password

    Hello world,

    we host mattermost by our own. So it is not allowed to register by your self. Our admin create the user with a initial password.

    So it will be good, that the user have to change the initial password.

    What do you think about it?

    Best reguards

    Steve

  4. Adjustable Email Notifications for only mentions or only direct messages

    Currently Email Notifications are sent out on either a mention or a direct message. Our users asked for the feature to decide weather to have notifications only for mentions, only for DMs or for both.

  5. Proxy third-party http requests through Mattermost server

    It would be very useful if http/s requests from Mattermost clients (web,desktop,mobile) to third party sites (for example analytics calls via js) could be optionally proxied through the Mattermost server itself. In restrictive environments these calls to third parties are often blocked by local security software, causing errors in the client.

  6. Teamspeak Plugin Integration

    Teamspeak is the top voice chat app in the market.

    https://teamspeak.com/en/ 2

    I suggest to have a MM integration plugin.

    It needs to work on Browser and MM clients too.

  7. File Archieving Feature

    I suggest to have a file archieving service that will move old files to an archive repository.
    If the user tries to access an archieved file, the server must be clever enough to recover that file from the archive repository.


    • Archive repository could be cloud server or a NAS with FTP service.

    • Upload files to archive repository whenever the file repository is full or the files are too old(set by the admin. I think 1 month old is enough).

    • Download files from archive repository will be slower. That’s fine this is an economical solution.

    • Archive repository is not mandatory, it…

  8. Unsubscribe from email notifications directly from the email

    Currently when you receive an email notification, you cannot unsubscribe from the notifications directly from the email. Instead, you must log in, then go to Account Settings > Notifications to turn them off.

    Propose providing a link in the email which allows you to unsubscribe from the notifications without logging in, similar to Discourse.

  10. List accepted (and not yet ones) invitations

    Keep track to whom accepted invitation and those who didn't yet.
    When you send invitations to many people, you can't know for sure who actually accepted so you may want to resend invitations to your list of contacts (and again… And again…).

  12. Add ability to move mistaken thread replies in a channel to the intended thread

    If a user misses replying to a thread in a channel and instead replies directly to the channel, this message is not part of the thread that it was intended to be and the conversation is not clear.

    There should be a way for a user or channel admin to move a message to the intended thread inside the channel and keep it inline with the on-going threaded conversation (since everything is timestamped this seems possible).

    This would clean up the conversations and mistakes that users will make.

  13. Sending payload in »application/json« for slash commands

    Almost all integrations in Mattermost send or receive payloads with a »application/json« content type. Incoming Webhooks, Outgoing Webhooks (configurable, see ticket https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/1649), Interactive Message Buttons… but not »Slash Commands«. Slash Commands are the only integration type, which sends it payload as »application/x-www-form-urlencoded«. Please allow sending a slash command with »application/json«.

  14. Warning message for all posts in Town Square

    There are a lot of discussions about what to do with Town Square if there are lots of users. (we have 450+ users there)
    It is always new users that land in Town Square and post some random test question or say hi or something. Not aware that they are addressing 450+ people. (despite the header clearly stating that and numerous posts in Town Square about the issue).

    A simple solution that could be implemented very easily (I guess) would be to get a popup similar to @channel for all posts in Town Square that raises awareness.

    This proposal relates…

  15. Toggle the visibility of bot/webhook messages

    I'd like a way to quickly hide/show bot and webhook messages in a channel. It would be easier to have conversations when the channel is regularly "spammed" by bot messages. Could be a simple button in the channel header

  16. Map Lync/Skype for Business user presence to Mattermost

    Hi,

    We use Lync/Skype for Business as the primary communications tool at my company, but for small project/team communications we use a self-hosted Mattermost server, because it's obviously 9000 times better than SFB.

    However, Mattermost (especially the desktop client) does not integrate very well with Windows regarding the user's presence.

    Short Scenario:
    If I lock my computer, SFB immediately sets my presence to Away, meanwhile Mattermost doesn't.

    On the other way around, if I minimize the Mattermost Desktop client to the tray, and I have an other application running on full-screen, after a short period, Mattermost goes to mark…

  17. Add the posibility to select a default team afer login

    Add the possibility to set a "default" team for every user. Currently the teams i am a member of are sorted alphabetically. If I login via GitLab the first team is selected.
    I would like to have the option to select a "default" team which is automatically selected after login and not the first in an alphabetically order.

  18. Allow users to give nicknames to other users. Similar to how Skype, Steam, etc allows you to rename a contact.

    Allow users to provide local nicknames for other users as a username is sometimes ambiguous as to who the user actually is.

  19. Daily email notification option

    I have the team version of Mattermost for a small project with friends hosted at my house. The best way to notify my group is via email, however, I can only send so many emails a month through my SMTP server. It would be nice if there was an option for sending a once a day notification added in addition to the instant, 15 min, and hourly.

    It would be also really helpful if I could set this as default for all my users and let them change it if they need to.
