  1. Message automatic deletion a la snapchat

    I'm trying Mattermost on a large organization as a professional communication tool surrounding but not overlapping formal previous communication tools that will remain (email, business specific tools, etc). To achive that, Mattermost messages are meant to be sended/received, read, and then expire and dissapear. We don't need a new static, searchable communication tool (yet on steroids), but a volatile one in order to support teams internal dynamics, but not to remain logged.
    I've thougth of a sort of bot checking times been read or time from post on every message and deleting on checking pre-defined conditions, but this would be…

  2. 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)

  3. 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.

  5. Add ephemeral chats

    Implement ephemeral chats. Useful for one-off topic discussions that may intersect users who do not all participate in a common room and for topics that don't fit existing rooms. There would be a simplified creation process (no topic, no purpose, invite users as the first action), generally more like Direct Messaging. It should also be possible to add/remove people from the conversation and promote it to a real room at some point. Maybe I just want to talk with a group of colleagues about dinner tonight...

    Benefits:
    - Quick
    - No competition for room names
    - Possibly allow them to…

  6. include a Trace option in the logging modes.

    We were having an issue that was causing Mattermost to continually crash for no apparently reason. Nothing was consistent in the log files, debug didn't give enough information, heck I even did an strace on the PID and wasn't able to get anything useful. A Trace option should include DB calls, perhaps a transaction ID to link the API call to the DB call...

  8. 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

  9. Enable export and import of Display Settings

    Similar to theme export/import, have UI under display settings that lets you export and import font, language, themes and other options under Account Settings > Display based on a piece of text that can be copied and pasted from an input box

  10. Create a "already used tags" drop down menu when typing # , based on the already used hashtags

    To preserve or moderate a given thread , theme or channel, tagging them makes the search much easier afterwards. But to make sure, that the given hashtags will be the same (tag cloud?), by typing # a dropdown should show up with already used tags. Behavior could be the same lile with @ or :(for smileys!).

  11. Link go binary statically

    Official docker library images are moving to alpine: https://www.brianchristner.io/docker-is-moving-to-alpine-linux/ There are many good reasons to follow.

    Alpine is statically linked and uses musl instead of glibc. The current release builds are not completely statically linked. In theory it should be really easy; replace

    go build

    with

    CGO_ENABLED=0 go build

  13. 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.

  14. Read Receipts: Implement a visual indication for messages if and when they have been read by other users of the channel

    Sometimes one's wondering if a post has already been read by other users. I could image that a member list of the channel pops up when one is selecting the read status from the particular post menu ("[..]").
    In private chats, a sinple check sign (similar to whatsapp) could signalize if a message had beend read by your counterpart.

  15. should implement an admin interface to the System Console to make the server auto update to the latest MM release

    It would be great to make admins life easier to develop an auto admin function to Mattermost that on click downloads, installs and updates the given installation, so the admin doesn't need terminal or root access anymore. Especially renewing the config (put the existing entries in the new/extended config) would be helpful.

  16. extend the "Manage Members" console to delete and configure a users profile

    In some cases it could happen that a profile is broken or an administrator wants to completely remove a user from the system. (one example could be that an account was hacked an the system was fully spammed with senseless messages. Another example could be a test user and its messages).
    An administrator should therefore be able to completely remove all arrears of such a users from the system. Furthermore he should be able to manage a user Profile to be able to disable notifications as an attendee or insert Profile Pictures to accounts.

  17. make administrators get a notification when new channels were created

    When users create new channels, there currently seems to be no notification emails send to administrators neither when a new channel is added nor who this channel added. This prevents administrators from being informed proactively about misbehaviours of users (i.e. if users create non corporate/private information exchanges on the system). A moderator feature would be very appreciated to help the IT securing itself and not having to explain the CEO why there is a public channel for exchanging illegal content, for example.

  18. 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…

  19. Secure direct messages using TextSecure/Axolotl algorithms

    Secure direct messages (and may be messages in private groups) using TextSecure/Axolotl algorithms. Unlike OTR protocol this will enable sending secure offline messages. I think TextSecure library could be used https://github.com/janimo/textsecure

  20. add support for syslog output

    It's a pain to deal with many scattered logfiles, so syslog support would be a welcome alternative.
    The only extra configuration despite enabling, and the loglevel should be the syslog facility.
