  2. possibility to re-link uploaded images

    When you upload or drag'n'drop an image to mattermost, that image gains a new name that does not end with an image extension, thus if you try to "copy image location" or use the "copy public link" from mattermost their will give u a link that you can paste back to matter most to re-link the image in a preview mode.

    A copy public link will look like:

    https://pre-release.mattermost.com/api/v3/public/files/zkqjspdektrqjde9xqnp7ef1er/get?h=gCgcKHjPrBr1OihNm-Iplg6-3uguwbWNDIMSev4GGuA

    And copy image location will look like:

    https://pre-release.mattermost.com/api/v3/files/zkqjspdektrqjde9xqnp7ef1er/get_preview

    As you can see neither end with a image extension and so if I simple paste it back in a message it will…

  3. smtp authorization support request

    for most small company, there is no ldap servier or sso. but all most have email service, self hosted or saas like google mail.
    if there is a authorization type called smtp authorization like oauth2(google,gitlab...), it will make company helpful more without make another authorization system, bothered with account management.

  4. 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.

  5. Use clocks to easily create and view threads

    This feature is really usefull to identify and follow different conversations in a channel.
    When you click on a clock, it adds the clock in the beginning of the post (or at the position of the cursor).
    When you hover on a clock in a post, it highlights the referring post and the answers to this post.

    You can see a demo there : http://sveetch.net/tribune/

  6. Provide Channel description in tooltip in the left panel

    Provide Channel description in tooltip in the left panel

    Currently, we need to go to the channel, then click on the little arrow, then View Info

    Personally, I spent 5 minutes to find this kind of information when I was checking that I didn't miss something and it is not yet available somewhere easily

  7. 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.

  8. Markup to directly navigate to the ticket on Redmine, a small overview of the ticket as well.

    Markup to directly navigate to the ticket on Redmine, a small overview of the ticket as well. For example, when I refer to a ticket I use #ticket_no. This could be parsed by the parser and replaced by an href that points to the ticket

  9. Show the channel the incoming webhook has been set to

    Currently I cannot find a way to know for which channel has been configured an incoming webhook (in my case, for integration with GitLab).

    In the "Integrations/Incoming Webhooks" section, just appear the name of the webhook and the webhook URL it self, without saying for which channel has been set, and the option of deleting it. And in the GitLab side there's no way to know for which channel will be triggered the hook.

    This come become a problem when you have several webhooks and channels.

  10. Context menu on user names or mentions, like "Send Email", "View Profile" and allow integrations

    Clicking on a user mention shows other mentions. But maybe we want to interact with that user in other ways, like sending a message (which should open the private conversation with them), send an email, view profile, etc.
    In addition, we could allow for integration with some other service. For example, integration can be defined as a URL endpoint that can pass/post the username as parameter or request a custom field in the use profile which then can be sent as parameter. For example, let's say we want to integrate with Skype to call the user via Skype. Integration might…

  11. Make new posts stand out more

    When there are multiple teams, when a new post is made to another team, it is difficult for users to notice it. I want you to show it with an impact that would reverse the color information of the icon.
    The same can be said for the channel name display within each team. It is difficult to understand with the current bold display.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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)

  16. Simple image editor - draw line to highligt part of image

    A simple image editor for uploaded images. This to draw lines, write text and add arrows. Would be great when explaining things. As in a quick bug report.

  17. open the emoji picker with typing ":", followed by pressing Tab

    I'd really like to see the emoji picker that can be activated as described in the title, instead of the ":" followed by minimum of 2 characters as it is at the moment.
    I'm aware of the full picker ticket https://mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/PLT-2354, but as i understand it doesn't include this feature.

  18. one file installation on hosted servers

    The installation should be only depending on a ftp-access to a hosted server storing data in flat files. Second best would be mysql connection.

  19. 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?

  20. Add user_real_name to outgoing slash commands or webhooks

    An outgoing /slash command from mattermost sends information including the token, userid and username in the POST.

    We would also like to see userrealname in the POST, without having to do another API call.

    For example:

    channelid=cniah6qa73bjjjan6mzn11f4ie&
    channel
    name=town-square&
    command=/somecommand&
    responseurl=not+supported+yet&
    team
    domain=someteam&
    teamid=rdc9bgriktyx9p4kowh3dmgqyc&
    text=hello+world&
    token=xr3j5x3p4pfk7kk6ck7b4e6ghh&
    user
    id=c3a4cqe3dfy6dgopqt8ai3hydh&
    username=freddy
    user
    real_name=Fred+Smith
