  1. 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

  2. Give an option to make team invite links one-time-use

    Give an option to make team invite links one-time-use. Reusable invite links (especially ones that aren't auto-regenerated at any point) leaves too much opportunity for unauthorized signups

  3. 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…

  4. load to my last message

    The idea is to have a link, "load to my last message", right beside "Load more messages", the goal of it is to "load all chat messages up to the last time I talked in that channel", this way rather than seeing messages backwards, I can just click it and read the channel in order from the time I left it. Seems like a rather simple addition.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Team specific position

    Sometimes we don't have the same position in different team. Maybe it would be interesting to be able to have different position depending on the team, and not one position per account.

  8. Custom intro text for system, team and channels

    Custom intro text for a system, team or channel, similar in set up to Custom Tutorial Text with markdown support and preview, that is displayed to a user when joining a specific system, team or channel, and the user needs to hit "Okay" to dismiss. The user should be able to find the message in the system, team or channel settings to review the info.

    Requesting this because often organizations want to share more about the purpose of their Mattermost deployment, and include different links, e.g. link to naming conventions to use for channels, an internal user's guide to the…

  9. allow users to 'follow' others to create a filtered feed view.

    Currently we have an in-built equality of posts which can become inefficient with high volume.

    Recognizing the importance of hubs in scale-free network growth, we could allow for a filtered view of the main town-hall feed, where you just saw the posts (and related threads) of those you choose to follow.

    One could also toggle back to the unfiltered view, but allowing people to cluster could make high volume teams more manageable.

    Unlike Facebook, the user would remain in control - with no algorithm and the ability to toggle back to the unfiltered view.

  10. Add Phabricator OAuth2 support

    Allow for Phabricator's OAuth2 provider as an auth source.

    Currently, the Team Edition only supports GitLab as an auth source, and this is a bit limiting, as some organisations such as mine need a bit more than what GitLab offers and have based their development processes on Phabricator.

    We have an internal project ongoing to migrate from our private IRC server for communication to Mattermost or similar. Currently, MM is by far the most interesting solution out there, but the lack of more extensible/less tied to GitLab OAuth2 support is probably becoming a blocker.

    We could probably feed the necessary…

  12. 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.

  13. Improve customization of push notification messages

    Currently push notifications have very limited customizing potential. There is support to provide localized content, but the code assumes always prepends the sender's name to the notification text.

  14. 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.

  15. filter channels/users in the sidebar

    It would be fantastic to have the option to search/filter in the sidebar.
    In big organizations where you talk to many people, sometimes the sidebar gets enormous. A search field in top of the sidebar will allow to filter it and also search (when pressing Return)

    It "should" keep the headers (favorites, channels, users) to keep it simple.

  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.

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

  19. Restore should be in Team edition or Channel delete in Team edition should be permanent

    If i delete a channel i cannot create a new one with same name. nor can i restore the previous channel without enterprise edition.

    I suggest to move feature of restoring to Team edition. Alternatively make channel deletions permanent so another channel with same name can be created.

  20. Option to disable user "Access History"

    Mattermost seems to log all user IP as a default.
    Maybe it would be a nice option to opt-out per user or system wide the logging of all IP addresses.
