  2. Create an editable message ('wikipost')

    Our team documents project features by posting and re-editing posts. (They can then be flagged, or in future, made sticky, to keep them at hand.)

    What would be useful here is to make a post that I choose to allow others to edit, in a wiki or confluence-style.

  3. Have "Unread" option showing all unread messages and notifications across all channels

    Slack has something similar that shows above all channels. It makes it easy to browse through your unread messages without having to click each channel separately.

  4. Add Gitea OAuth2 Support

    Support Gitea's OAuth2 provider as an authentication source.

    Currently, the team edition only supports GitLab as an OAuth2 source. GitLab is pretty heavyweight and many people prefer other software for a variety of reasons.

    Gitea (https://gitea.io/en-us/) is a really nice open source, community supported Git server. They recently added support for acting as an OAuth2 provider (see https://docs.gitea.io/en-us/oauth2-provider/ for documentation). It would be great if Mattermost would support Gitea as an OAuth2 provider.

  5. 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.

  6. Create a Sandstorm app

    Mattermost seems to be a good candidate for making a Sandstorm app. Sandstorm https://sandstorm.io/ allows for secure bottling of web-apps. Many of the apps currently in the ecosystem are complementary to Mattermost - in function and ideology.

  7. 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 :(

  8. Add the option to increase font size

    Currently the web interface has no option to increase the font size. This is plainly silly. Please fix this ASAP.

  9. Add actual permanent deletion - on database AND filesystem level

    It would be really, really cool, if one would be able to delete content permanently.

    The problem is that currently the mattermost installation will grow indefinitely.

    The idea is to allow system admins (or "./platform"-access) to clean storage and database.
    Selectively: delete all "deleted" files, delete all "deleted" messages.

    Currently you can delete users and teams permanently.
    (leaving their filesystem stuff)
    Which basically just needs some little extension.

    Also add some information for sysadmins on how much filesystem storage is currently in use (+used by deleted files) and add an option that warns sysadmins if the set number of GB…

  10. Administrator should be able to change the profile settings of an user

    An Administrator should be able to change the profile settings of an user (i.e. changing the user picture,user Name or first/last name)
    Also, an administrator should be able to prevent users from being able to changing these options. (policies)

  11. hide offline contacts

    It would be nice to have an option, that enables the user to hide contacts that are currently offline.
    This would mainly apply to the "direct messages".
    It is really annoying to search through a long list (~50) of contacts you often need to chat with, when about 50% are currently offline and are therefore of no interest at the moment.

  12. 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…

  13. Personal Timeline: See History of all Conversations

    I would like to see all recent posts in one page.
    Think of it as your personal conversation timeline.

  14. Users should be able to delete their datas without any admin intervention.

    Hello,
    cli tool is not user's compliant :)
    Users should be able to delete (not just deactivate) their datas without any admin intervention.

  15. Add support for SQL Server

    Most enterprises medium or larger have SQL Server licenses and supporting infrastructure (DBA team, servers, backup/recovery scripts, etc.) already established.

    Support for SQL Server would be very helpful so we can leverage what we have in-house already.

  16. Add better filters/search for messages and attachments


    1. Have a panel in the sidebar (similar to Slack) to view all available files/your files for the team/channel. Filters by file type and being able to search the filename would also be nice.


    2. Have additional search filters (again similar to Slack) such as the time/duration or the has: qualifier (e.g. has: link)

  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. Build a thread system similar to Twist

    As plenty of companies around there we find Slack/Mattermost a bit too chatty at times. More importantly, it sometimes makes it really hard to follow discussion around a specific topic. For now we have two choices :


    1. Create a specific channel around a topic. But you can start to have a lot of channels really fast

    2. Use "threads". But to be frank threads implementation is really lacking and not practical for complex discussions

    A new player,https://twistapp.com/, has an interesting take on this problem. Real time channels still exists, but there is another category of channels, entirely based on…

  19. Out-of-office responder

    Add ability to set an "Out of Office" message so when users mention someone who is away, they'll be notified that they're unavailable.

    Note: This ticket does not include changing to status message, which will be included in a separate design.


    1. Add an option to Account Settings > Notifications called "Away Message"

    Title: Out-of-office Message
    Help Text: Set an automated out-of-office message to notify people mentioning you that you area not immediately available. Sent at most once every 4 days to same person who mentioned you.

    UI:
    Send the following "Out-of-office Message":
    [ E.g. "I'm traveling until March 2, 2016.…

  20. Define Global Custom/Default Themes

    Currently the default themes available to users are hardcoded in the mattermost source. I would love to be able to define a default theme with a particular color scheme that differs from what is available in the base Mattermost install.
