  1. Invite users ignoring white list

    We are using mattermost at our university and have a whitelist set-up so only people from our university can join. However some teams have indicated they want to cooperate with others who are not officially affiliated with our university and thus have no university e-mail address.

    We would like an option for sysadmins to invite these users to the server.

  2. Restricted channels with a join policy

    Currently all you can have in Mattermost is public channels (joinable by everyone in the team) and private channels (not visible in any listing, and you need to be added).

    The problem is that sometimes you want to have a private discussion where e.g. everyone from the IT department is allowed to participate. Currently you would have to add your whole department to such a channel (which is spammy, especially since you cannot hide any channels from your sidebar without leaving them).

    It would be nice if it was possible to mark a channel as restricted. Such a channel would…

  4. Add user profiles and text boxes

    It would be great if there was a way to expand profiles to include boxes where users could host information. This might include: location, about me, skills, experience, links to external sites and portfolios, or active tasks engaged with. If there is already a way to do this it would be great to know. Thanks!

  5. make threads multilevel with nested replies

    After using Mattermost in a large organization setting it is quite clear that threads need to have multiple levels. Meaning I should be able to reply to someone else's reply and have it show up indented under his. This would be extremely useful once threads are made collapsible. Think of Reddit comment threads.

  6. SIP implementation

    Users should be able to sign in with a SIP account and make and receive voice calls through it and maybe even transfer it internally. It's important for customer services calls.

    Video call is only a nice-to-have feature.

    And admin needs to be able to assign a SIP account to a user.

    It should be rather easy to implement since there a lot of SIP clients out there.

  7. [Feature Request] close the websocket connection when revoke the user access token

    Hi all,

    I noticed that when I revoke the access token of a user. and the websocket connection of this access token is not closed or disconnected.

    in addtion, there is no new message from the websocket when revoked the accesstoken, but the websocket connection is ok.

    is it posssible to close the websocket connection when revoke the access token or session?

    mattermost server version: 4.5.0

    thanks a lot

  8. Sub-comment

    Hi,

    please implement this code to all CSS templates:

    .post.same--root.post--comment, .post.same--root.same--user.post--comment {

    padding-left: 4em;
    

    }

    so chat look like this:

    http://www.image-share.com/ipng-3649-129.html

    We are using it some time, and chat is more clear to read.

    Many thanks.

    Miroslav

  9. add anchors to /help/* docs

    Many "normal" users have problems writing markdown when chatting.
    For example, my friend don't know how to add "In-line Images".
    So, I want to send him a link to "In-line Images" section at https://chat.ohze.net/help/formatting
    But I can't because "In-line Images" is not an anchor like, ex https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#stage-1-pm-review (auto added by github for headings in a markdown document)

  10. Ability to modify attached files when editing a message

    Currently, Mattermost provides the ability to edit a message after you have posted it.

    However, there is no way to modify the file attachments via this editing process.

    Recent use case: I uploaded the wrong file when posting a message. Ideally I would have been able to edit the post to correct the mistake, i.e. to remove the incorrect file and attach the one I meant to attach. However, I could find no way of doing this.

    Luckily, in my case it was simply an old version of the document, and therefore not too big a problem. However, I am…

  11. 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.

  12. Notifications for replies in threads, and ability to follow/unfollow threads (like slack)

    I wish there was a notification setting like in slack to enable the setting "Notify me about replies to threads I'm following"... and then the ability to opt-out of following threads (but following them is automatic for any threads that you start or comment on)

  13. Add a whitelist which protocols should be linkified

    See https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/7657 for details.
    TL;DR: It's not very useful to convert e.g. foo:bar to a link.

  14. Disable notifications functionality for defined period of time

    As a user I want to deactivate Mattermost notifications in my windows desktop application for a defined period of time. After this period the notifications will be shown as before.
    I can predefine in the period in the setings.
    I would like to activate this function by right clicking on the system tray icon and choose the action.

  15. emoji reaction keyboard shortcut

    This was my most used shortcut in another messaging app that starts with an S and ends with an ack.

    Also to then be able to select emoji with arrow keys and enter is crucial. Would even go a step beyond if shift enter allowed you to pick more than one emoji reaction! #Mindblown

  16. 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)

  17. Private message with authorized members only

    Hi, (I am new to this forum but I have installed Mattermost in my organization)

    Is it possible to add a new choice in the administrative console in the option “Allow users to open private message channels with” to request permission to create private messages with members who use the platform.

    Currently, the configuration choices are:

    All members of the team
    Any user on the Mattermost server
    and I would like to add :

    Only authorized members
    To prevent all members from communicating privately without prior notice

    Is it a good idea ?

  18. I can search easily for a group name on iPhone, but there is not the same convenient matching feature on macOS.

    I can search easily for a group name on iPhone, but there is not the same convenient matching feature on macOS. Also on iPhone, I see all unread messages at top of list, on macOS I have to scan the whole list to find unread messages. So the macOS client needs to catch up with the iPhone.

  19. Use different color for nicknames

    Using various colors for nicknames improves readibility a lot!

  20. Modify a user via CLI

    Would be nice to have the ability to update/modify a user via the CLI. Similarly to create user, you are able to set their name, email, etc. It would be nice to be able modify those details of an existing user via the CLI or even UI. I've found some user's end up entering their names all lower case or some don't even enter their details.
