  1. Restrict team by email

    It is currently possible to restrict account creation to specific email domains via “Settings > Users and Teams > Restrict account creation to specified email domains”; however, once a user has an account, they can be invited to any team, or join any open team.

    We would like to be able restrict individual teams to an email domain too. Specifically, we have a group of external contractors who have access to their own team, but we don’t want them to accidentally end up in any of our other teams.

    For example, team “Foo” would only allow members from @foo.com, and…

    • Adding users to group DM should provide an option to keep history

      When you have a multi user direct message and you add new members (as a conversation grows to need more people) you end up creating a new DM with no history. Instead mattermost should provide an option to keep the history available.

      • Chatting to Golang Bot through direct message

        Hello, I have the golang bot implemented into a mattermost channel.
        It would be helpful to have an option for users to ask the bot questions in a Direct message as opposed to just a public channel.
        I feel that this would encourage users to use the bot more and help shy users as well. That way there can be some sort of privacy between users.
        Also, a way to have a log for Admins to keep track of what questions are being asked will be helpful in developing the bot further.

        • search in bots' messages

          We use MM EE integrate with GitLab EE, so "bots" from GitLab post issues / comments / merge requests to our channels. Today I discovered that MM Search feature does not search (or index?) messages send by such bots as it does not consider them as char participants (from: autocomplete does not offer bots' names, only humans). Is there a setting affecting this or it's by design? Thank you.

          • Channel-specific option for Notifications from Channel-wide mentions "@channel", "@all", and "@here"

            Channel-specific option to enable/disable notifications from channel-wide mentions "@channel", "@all", and "@here". Currently they can only be globally toggled in "Account Settings" > "Notifcations" > "Words that trigger metnions" > "Channel-wide mentions @channel, @all, @here".

            I want notifications for some channels where I'm the main support person and need to respond to all messages, but do not want notifications on other channels that I never need to reference unless I have a question I'll be asking others.

              • EE: Provide controls for creation of public and private channels at the team level

                The global channel settings aren't flexible enough create teams with differing levels of channel security. Please consider adding the public & private channel settings at the team level.

                Simplistic example:

                Team A: invite only with the creation of public rooms disabled
                Team B: public team, with the creation of public rooms enabled
                Team C: public room with the creation of public rooms disabled

                • Add GPG signed and encrypted notifications (end to end)

                  As administrator I want to restrict notification messages sent from my self-hosted mattermost server to be GPG signed and encrypted.

                  That means, if a user hasn't uploaded a GPG public key to his account, notifications sent to him only contain some metadata or nothing at all.
                  If a user has uploaded a GPG public key, then the notification message is encrypted for him as receiver, so only he can read it.
                  The notification message shall be signed in any case with the private key that I configured in my mattermost server.

                  Motivation: transport layer security between the mattermost server and…

                    • Report duplicate AD/LDAP information rather than setting usernames to random strings every hour

                      When the AD/LDAP User Filter is too permissive, multiple user objects with the same Email Attribute may be returned. When this happens, and the Username Attribute is not present on the returned value, Mattermost may reset the username of the existing user with the same email address to a random string. This repeats every 60 minutes (or whatever the Synchronization Interval is set to).

                      For example, if two LDAP objects are returned:
                      { userclass=contact, email=myusername@example.com }
                      { userclass=user, sAMAccountName=myusername, email=myusername@example.com }

                      In this case, Mattermost may cause username@example.com's account to have its user id changed to a…

                      • Method to get/export channel member list

                        Sometimes it would be handy to export a list of channel members for example to form an emailing list or something. Can't find a way to do this either on UI or with commandline tools. Ideally it would be configurable to get Name or Email or both.

                          • Ability to search all content (FOIA)

                            Sorry if this is already a feature (I'm a Mattermost noob) but I haven't found a way of doing this yet...

                            If we are going to implement this, we WILL need a way to search all content (Public/Private channels, Direct messages and Archived) for legal queries!

                            This is a basic requirement of all software we implement within Government!

                            Note: I am currently using the Team edition as a trial, so maybe it is a feature in the Enterprise version??

                                • allow admins to set the default channels when a member joins

                                  It was nice in Slack to say for the batch of invitees that have been recently invited that they be thrown into channels x, y, z instead of having to manually Add Member to varying channels or ask them to seek out channels and add themselves.

                                  • Add a system console option to hide the "Leave Team" button

                                    For instances that only use one team, the option to leave the team is not useful.

                                    Please add an option to the system console to hide the button or add a user permission for this function.
                                    The user permission would be the preferred way to handle this to be prepared for growing instances.

                                    • Limit direct messages per User

                                      We would like the users to focus on channels. Although we do not want to disallow direct messaging at all.

                                      It would be amazing if we could set a direct message limit per day.

                                      For example: User X is allowed to send 20 direct messages per day, while User Y can send unlimited direct messages.

                                      With this feature we don't limit the users too much, but we also make sure that important information is held in the channels.

                                      • Support for nosql database

                                        Considering the benefits of data analytics for such kind of apps, don't you think support for a nosql database would help. Also, if you want to scale it to a million users; will a rdbms solution support that?

                                        • direct message

                                          Improve search/filter during direct message.
                                          With more than 100 users, it is really tough to find the user for DM through scrolling. Sometimes the user only know the first name and not last name... or worse, can only guess the spelling

                                          Would be great if we could use

                                          "mochi"

                                          to find

                                          "masashi-mochizuki"
