  1. 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!

  2. Daily / weekly email digests

    I know it sounds like the “email batching” feature added in Mattermost 3.4 <https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/12903204-allow-email-batching-limiting>

    … but for non-professionnal environnement, a daily, weekly, or even 15 days or monthly “digests” of notifications and/or channels activities would be very useful. Even with one hour batches, members deactivates their notifications when they can't work everyday for the team.

    “Slow projects” don't need immediate responses, and a moderate usage of notifications would be appreciated.

    In some circonstances, a good (slow) timing of reminder could even drive members' involvement (e.g. for those who takes a few hours per week for a project).

  3. Use different color for nicknames

    Using various colors for nicknames improves readibility a lot!

    Slack does it already.

  4. Add a /quote command

    Pasting a multi-paragraph block of text for quoting is currently frustrating, as you can't just type "> " and then paste and hit return, because if "\n\n" happens to exist in the block, it'll fall out of quote mode.

    Since we already have /code for code pastes (like HipChat), let's also go for /quote: you do "/quote <paste><enter>" and done.

    The implementation would be virtually identical to /code, just replace the 4 spaces with "> "

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  8. Unread posts in the API

    I want to use the API to check if I have unread posts, but it doesn't seem the API contains such a counter. It contains a msg_count and a mention_cout, but not the counter I want.
    There is still a possible hack:
    For each channel in a team:

        * Get the timestamp of the last visit
    
    * Get the posts created after that timestamp
    * Count them

    Besides the fact that it's insanely complex compared to a simple yet handy counter in the API, it involves that we have to fetch the content of all the unread posts, which…

  9. 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

  11. view or copy source of a message

    It would be really useful to reuse markdown messages.

    Currently, Users can see raw message only when markdown is disabled.
    And they can only copy their own messages.

  12. Team initials

    Ability to change team initials / short name.

    For example if your teams start with the same prefix, the initials are going to be the same for all of them.

    Furthermore you may want to set it manually, or if the name is made of multiple words, use the first letter of each word as initials.

    This is also related to https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/15465123-team-icon

    Idea is to be able to differentiate teams easier :)

    I also don't know about mobile apps, but in the web version on desktop the initials could potentially include up to 4 characters.

  13. 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.

  14. 100% Slack Compatible Webhooks

    I would like Mattermost to be able to consume any Slack-compatible webhook. It is very frustrating that I have to build a tool to proxy webhooks from GitHub for example.

    When a user signup using gitlab sso, it would be nice if mattermost imports the avatar image as the user's profile picture.

  16. Auto/Periodic Refresh of Channel Header

    Some users find themselves navigating through multiple channels quite frequently; while others find themselves "squatting". My team happens to be full of the those that squat largely because we use one channel per project, and one build per project. We'd like to include the build shield/badge images into the header (which is currently possible); however, since the channel header is never refreshed, individuals must rely solely on messages within the channel to bring the current build status to their attention.

    Either adding an auto-refresh to all channel headers, or allowing administrators to selectively enable a channel header for periodic update/refresh…

  17. increase the 22 character limit on channel names.

    Slack recently increased their character limitation on channel names. We would like Mattermost to increase the limit as well, as this has been a helpful feature since it was rolled out.

  18. Add Ability to allow webhooks in private channels

    Add a control to allow webhooks to work in private channels. A per webhook control would be best, but an all or nothing would be a good start.

  19. Create a wizz button, like the old MSN chat

    Like the old school MSN chat, it will be nice to add a wizz button or slash command or something else ... ?, meaning we need you to pay more attention to our post, that could be triggered a move on the windows for desktop app, and/or a new notification message.

  20. System Admin should be able to force displaying of users real name (prename and surname! not nickname or username!)

    In some environments it would be very usefull for the participants to be able to clearly identify a user. This is not necessarily the case, if nicknames (or even usernames) can be choosed by the users themself to be displayed in Mattermost channels.
    Therefore an administrator should be able to force the displayed name to display the prename and surname within the chat history window to minimize an users anonymity. This may be also related to a forced disclosure of prename and surname during the registration process.
