  1. Implement changing channel ownership

    There is currently no method for changing the owner of a channel.


    • A channel owner should be able to assign ownership of their channel to another user

    • Team admins and System Admins should be able to assign ownership of any channel to another user

  2. Add a Message of the Day feature for each channel

    We have several teams at work and each channel in the team has a specific purpose. It would be ideal if we could set a time at which a recurring message of the day would be posted. We would include links to resources for the team as well as recent news for people who have been out of the office and are returning.

    It would be like an extension to the header and purpose sections. Ideally tagging people would work such that some of the messages can act as daily reminders to everyone of the schedule.

  4. Disable highlighting of own messages

    When chatting, the own messages are currently highlighted (grey background) which is a little bit confusing in my opinion. It would be create to either disable that, turn it the other way around or make it configurable

  5. Allow administrators to set default notification settings

    The default notification setting causes a lot of spam. It's hard for new users to find this and adjust it to mention-only, so they end up simply leaving teams. It would be helpful if administrators could choose which default new accounts start with. In my deployment, we would prefer new accounts start with notifications set to mention-only, of course allowing the users to change it.

  7. Prevent non-admin users from posting and editing to channel

    The use case is to provide information to users, for example, release notes, status updates, etc. In order to keep the channel relevant and to avoid clutter, non-admin users have read-only access.

    This feature allows a team to create "reference" channels.


    1. team admins: create, read, update, delete

    2. non-admin users: read-only

    This idea is similar to, and currently under review for Enterprise Edition:

    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/12874797-add-write-policy-for-channels-and-private-groups#comments

  8. Directory of public channels/channels I can have access to

    A user should be able to easily see & search the list of all channels they have joined and can join. I'm seeing a number of duplicate channels created across teams because the user did not know it existed in another location.

  9. channel profile images

    Support avatar icons for channels.

    it would be great if the service and apps provided a similar API and UX to allow profile images to be assigned and queried for a channel.
    This might work similarly to what is in place for users, where the Mattermost API supports getting a profile image for a user, except this request would provide profile image by channel.

  10. 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…

  11. 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)

  12. Switch usage for "Write a message..." vs "Add a comment..."

    In our use case, most posts are intended as replies to a previous post. So it would make sense that the default main view holds single topic/discussion, and the text box at the bottom is for posting replies to that thread, and a List of available topics are shown on the side, where you also can post new topics.

    This is effectively the opposite of how the UI is laid out now. The background for this request is that most users (myself included) miss to post a reply as a comment, and mess up the conversation history (even a lot…

  14. send message later

    I'd find it realy useful to be able to send a message later at a given date and time (e.g. like Buffer).
    Often, I'd find some useful or interesting info I want to post to the team chat at off-hours, and the message could either be overlooked because the timestamp will be quite old during work hours, or I'd disturb team members who have hot keywords defined and get notified automatically.

  15. Let admins allow anonymous posts / anonymous channels

    A setting that allows users to make anonymous posts. Or that forces all posts in a given channel to be anonymous.

    On a trusted server, this gives users a safe place to make anonymous statements.

    Similar to the "Anonymous posting" feature of Discourse: https://www.discourse.org/about/

    > Enable anonymous posting mode and your users can easily switch to anonymous mode to post about controversial, dangerous, or political issues without fear.

  17. Clone slack's code snippet feature.

    Clone slack's code snippet feature.

    I think this is different from
    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/12927891-code-snippet-with-preview
    Which gives more detailed explanation at the ends.

    It is also a little different from
    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/15495801-add-a-one-click-action-to-create-a-new-snippet
    In that not requesting to do away with fences, just want the slack snippet feature.

    Thanks!

  18. Strip markdown from browser notifications

    Currently all my browser notifications contain markdown syntax. Since the browser (and desktop) notifications don't support markdown this leads to pretty much unreadable notifications, especially when used with one of the numerous integrations that for example post Github notifications into Mattermost containg links to commits and PRs or avatar images of the author. While it looks very pretty in Mattermost it makes browser/desktop notifications almost unusable.

    The solution to this would be to just strip all messages of the contained markdown (e.g. links/images) before they are being forwarded to the browser/os to be displayed as a notification.

    I couldn't find…
