  1. Disable join/leave messages globally

    It would be nice to disable the join/leave messages independently from the user specific setting. We use a channel to post anonymous posts via a bot. People can see who joined and see a link to an anoynmous post.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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…

  6. 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??

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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"

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Access Control List for Web Interface & Mobile App

    We are a .org wishing to implement Mattermost.

    We would like only a specific group of "internal" users to be allowed to access the server from outside the firewall. In addition, we would also like a specific group of external clients to be able to access the server through the mobile app.

    I understand one method is to use a VPN. However, an additional app to put on someone's device may be a burden.

    The Novell/Micro Focus Product Webaccess has a feature that allows the admin to specify users via an .xml file.

    A snippet:

    "Controlling WebAccess Usage:

  19. We need "(managerable) Closed Public Channel / Nonstealth private group"

    as we like the style of discussion coming up to several topics, a lot customers we work with, make us work with an NDA. So we are not allowed to discuss work related stuff with people, that did not sign this NDA. Ok. We could go with Private Groups. BUT: this is invite only. Sometimes it would be helpful to be able to "see" that there are several topics that might be of my intrest, so i would like to ask the admin to let me join. So I would like to have different "Channel Modes" like : administrate channe…

  20. New Channel Announcements

    When people create new channels within a team, it would be great to have a popup that shows team members within the channel a screen something like "New Channels created since your last visit, refresh, etc..."

    What we are finding is people are creating new channels within Teams, yet no one knows about them unless they click on the More link within the team.
