    • 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?

            • Ability to have announcement-only channels

              It would be nice to have ability to have a channel where only specific person (either a group or say just Team Admins) have ability to speak.

              We have few channels that are used for annonucements (like one with food delivery, other with builds etc) that are subscribed by most of the employees, but people still have conversations in it, spamming almost everyone in company with them

              • 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"

                • 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.

                  • RestrictPublicChannelManageMembers

                    It would be cool, if you added a policy for RestrictPublicChannelManageMembers as it already exists for RestrictPrivateChannelManageMembers.

                    The idea is that not everyone should be able to remove other users from public channels.
                    Even if there is no banning, removed users wont get notified of their removal and it results into trolling to join all public channels and remove all members from all public channels.

                    Especially, if there are quite a few public channels, it really hurts to have to rejoin all the channels, just because some troll kicked everyone off.

                    • User folders sorted by department or server group

                      I got asked by a colleague if it is possible to sort the Users because he had about 60+ Users in the Direct Messages section.

                      It would be nice if you can sort it by a specified department (or Position) or that you can create User groups (with specific permissions for example) and that they get sorted in categories like this.

                      An other way could be that everyone can create custom folders with users in it and can expand it if needed.

                      • Set policy for password history

                        A companies security policy often has rules stating that a password may not be reused. To facilitate this many applications have a feature that allows the administrator to state how many passwords the application should remember until a password can be reused. Think, for example, a maximum of 10 password that the application must remember.

                        • Override "I forgot my password" for AD/LDAP Authentication

                          When using AD/LDAP authentication for the Mattermost Enterprise server there is still an "I forgot my password" link. I suggest that you allow Administrators to override where that link points to. For example, I would like that link to point to my corporate password reset and unlock portal. And/or allow administrators to turn that link off. This could be a part of the "Custom Branding" options on the Enterprise version.

                          • More robust CLI utility

                            My shop is very Linux and command line heavy. We would like to see the [install dir]/bin/platfrom utility expanded to include more features, which can then be scripted. The first such feature we would like to see would be the ability to list users from the utility.

                            • EE: Legal notice presentation for system, team and channels

                              Similar to Custom intro text for systems, teams and channels (https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/18595492-custom-intro-text-for-system-team-and-channels) this EE feature would be to enable the presentation of legal notices, formatted in markdown, by clicking an "I agree" button, instead of a "I do not agree" button (which would deny access to the system, team or channel on which the legal agreement is attached.

                              There needs to be a PRINT button to print the agreement, and a DOWNLOAD button to download a copy as a text file (in markdown, which is readable).

                              A full text record of the agreement at the time of acceptance should…

                              • Add option to set Avatar size

                                Currently the avatar size is around 32px.

                                My test users are hoping it could be bigger so as to recognize people easily.

                                I did a local test and increasing the size to 50px+ would not affect the layout and is indeed easier to find people.

                                  • Screen Sharing and Conferencing

                                    Team Communication would benefit a lot of a screen sharing functionality. It should contain a "request remote control" functionality to hold team meetings, feature explanations etc directly in Mattermost.

                                    • Allow Team Admins to see statistics for their Team

                                      Currently only System Admins can see individual team statistics information but it would be helpful to allow team admins to see their own team's statistics.

                                      • Add possiblility for a default team when using external auth (like LDAP)

                                        We use LDAP auth and users are able to login without being member of any team. We are now running a cronjob ensuring every user is part of our company wide team.

                                        We would like the possibility to have mattermost assign newly logged in users to a default team.

                                        • Add ability to send permalinks via email/sms

                                          The ability to generate and copy permalinks is great, but it would be awesome if there was an ability to share that URL, so that standard iOS share sheets, or Android intents, could be used to send urls via Gmail, iMessage, etc. Would make it much easier to integrate into our workflow.
