  1. make /commands referencable in post-text.

    There are interactive message buttons, but they dont flow neatly in the text. It should be possible to write a longer post, and reference commands and parameters in the text.
    Once the post is posted, they become clickable by everyone which would in some way ask for confirmation or just pre-fill the text-input-area and allow the users to execute said command.

    That way one could not even better educate users of (custom) commands, but could also help them prefill the arguments of commands.

    Example: I could write:

    hello there, it seems, like you want to use /command asdf for asdf…

  2. what are you reading?

    Currently i'm reading 2 books the one is about American tradition like their dressing ways their food or like famous food of American people and majorly about their ascent like what is the difference between American ascent and England and some other staff and the second book which named as the "Animal Horn"[1] many early hornbooks were made by printing letters onto paper or vellum (animal skin) – both expensive materials at the time. To protect them, the letters were covered with a layer of animal horn like cow horns, sheep, goat etc so thin that it was see-through. This…

  3. Allow users to be set to disallow direct messages

    At the moment, you can configure users to be allowed to send direct messages either to other members of the team or to anyone on the server.

    I'd like to make it so that normal users cannot start direct messages at all.

    My particular usecase may be a little out of the sweet spot - I have created a mattermost for my children (quite young) who I want to be able to chat with while they are doing their home learning, but don't want them using public chat systems. I am happy for them to interact with each other in…

  4. Adding a "Do Not Disturb" Mode

    We all know that people need to concentrate to work efficiently. This is why macOS and then all the operating systems have introduced the "Do not Disturb" mode, which allows to focus on your work.
    And I think we can do even better while integrating it to Mattermost.
    What is in the "Do not disturb" functionality ? It stops alls notification except the ones which doesn't disturb you.
    But the question is : why is it interesting to add it to Mattermost ?
    In a Mattermost server (for me), there are lots of different channels. Even the basics channels of…

  5. Admins should be able to see statistics of different channels too.

    Right now mattermost provides statistics at App level and at Team level. It would be really helpful if admins can see stats of different public/private channels too.

    That means if I have 15 different channels, I can stats of all of them and pick which one is being used the most and which is least.

    What do you think guys?

  7. Change custom attributes to support user set attribute values

    Custom attributes should optionally support having both a name and a value at the point of definition by the system admin.
    They would be as currently assigned to users/teams/group as
    appropriate. The value of the attribute could then be set at this time or by the user, team/group owner in a custom attribute extension to the user profile or similarly for for teams and group. Support for attributes of type simple
    (no value, current behavior), required (must be set), overridable (can be changed or not from value set by system) could also be added.
    An extension to markdown to return…

  9. Support other Postgres schema but public

    I have not found any way to specify the Postgres schema that mattermost should use and saw that the "public" schema was in the sql migration files.

    Using the public schema is not a recommended practice with postgres : https://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Database_Schema_Recommendations_for_an_Application

    See first section stating :
    "The recommendation is to create a single database with multiple named schemas [...]. Additionally, it is recommended to remove the public schema."

  11. Slack Api Compatibility:Shortcuts、App Home、Block Kit

    Mattermost currently lacks some feature of Slack app

    1. Block Kit is a UI framework for Slack apps
    2. Shortcuts give users clear entry points to access your app, can trigger modals and other app interactions
    3. App Home is a private, one-to-one space in Slack shared by the user and the app, within any App Home, there are multiple tabs, Some tabs like About And Messages are fixed, but Home tabs can be fully customized by apps

    these feature can improve Mattermost plugins user experience

  13. Add the team name to any notification emails

    Please add the team name to any notification emails sent by MM. While we have few teams with common channel names, it is really confusing from email body which team it is.

  14. Clearer notification for plugin upload failure (size limit)

    I was receiving a generic "Received invalid response from the server" messages when trying to upload the BigBlueButton plugin. I eventually discovered that it was because the Maximum File Size was configured to 5MB.

    A clear message stating either what the "invalid response" was or flagging the issue as "too large of a file" size would be less generic and easier to troubleshoot.

  15. Ability to change the order of channel groupings

    There are several options now provided for changing the grouping and ordering of channels, but one is conspicuously missing IMO: the ability to change the ordering of the groupings.

    In my use of MM, I have a small handful of favorite channels, and then a bunch of other channels, and then a small handful of direct messages. Most of my communication is in the favorite channels and the direct messages, but the former is at the very top and the latter is at the very bottom. It is annoying to have to scroll through the wasteland of all of my…

  16. AWS S3 Prefix/Suffix

    Summary
    At the moment, it is only possible to use root of the bucket. It will be nice to be able to use subfolder of the bucket. Some of us have more than 50 buckets...adding even single one more is chaos.

    Expected behavior
    Be able to set S3Prefix in order to use s3://bucketname/s3prefix/s3_object

  19. Clarified "Channel Purpose"

    The "purpose" element of each channel is very difficult to see. Information such as who created this channel doesn't need to be noticeable. The necessary "purpose" statement is buried in the information. I want at least the "purpose" statement to bold the font.
    I want to hide or move information other than the purpose.

  20. Make new posts stand out more

    When there are multiple teams, when a new post is made to another team, it is difficult for users to notice it. I want you to show it with an impact that would reverse the color information of the icon.
    The same can be said for the channel name display within each team. It is difficult to understand with the current bold display.
