  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  5. Prevent changing first and last name changes when using LDAP

    It would be great if you could prevent users from changing their first and last names when using LDAP authentication.

  6. 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.

  9. Ability to customize the chat display/layout

    Add a way to customize the display of the chat in the web interface. Currently a single message takes up two lines of text. If each message could be formatted as desired, the layout could be tailored to each users preference.

    For example (with overly descriptive variable names):
    %SENTTIME%| %SENDER%> %MESSAGE%
    Would result in:
    15:56| Kristian> Hello world!

    To build the current view, you could do:
    %AVATAR% %SENDER% %SENTTIMEAGO%\n%MESSAGE%

    Or something like that.

    As a long time IRC user, I feel that the WebUI for mattermost uses way too much space for a simple chat messages. With customized layout, it…

  11. Microsoft MS-CAPI / PKCS 11 Support

  12. Microsoft Active Directory SSO with reverse proxy REMOTE_USER

    For advanced enterprises with sophisticated authentication requirements, this feature would allow authentication through REMOTE_USER information passed in via HTTP headers

    This feature requires a [fundamental change to the Mattermost user model](https://forum.mattermost.org/t/unifying-user-accounts-across-teams-for-mattermost-2-2/1126
    ) so that users can exist outside of teams.

    Several threads have discussed this feature:
    - https://forum.mattermost.org/t/active-directory-sso-through-a-reverse-proxys-remote-user/295
    - https://forum.mattermost.org/t/client-side-certificate-authentication/1174

  13. Add write policy for channels and private groups

    This feature is essentially a "force mute" in a meeting room, when you want to enable some people to listen in, but not to speak.


    • Add an option to restrict the ability to post to a channel or private group (requires channel header menu redesign--the menu is over the UX guideline of 5-7 options per menu)

    • Add the ability to define users who have the ability to post, which would by default include Team Admins. We don't currently have UX for a channel owner or channel creator, but in future Enterprise releases this may be added

    • Include UX so that…

  14. make private chats able to authorize users based on ldap groups

    In corporate Environments often closed discussions take place between persons whose users already exist within predefined ldap groups. For Mattermost it would make sense to authorize users for private channels using such existing ldap groups.

  15. make administrators able to look into private chats

    In corporate environments it is sometimes necessary on legal grounds to check an employees communication. Usually the management asks the IT therefor to deliver ones communication. Currently an administrator is neither able to view the existing private chats from any user nor is there an export function to extract all users content from the database

  17. Multiple concurrent daemons for HA/scalability

    I am currently running two mattermost daemons on separate VM's doing exactly the same thing (same nfs share for files, same MySQL cluster backend for database), to have HA.

    In my original setup I had them loadbalanced too (meaning individual user sessions got spread over both backends), however I noticed notifications were not always working.

    I got over this issue by reconfiguring the loadbalancer and putting the mattermost backends in active/stand-by - all sessions are now assigned to one backend (the 'active' one) until it fails (reboot, upgrade, etc.); then the stand-by becomes active all sessions move to the other.…

  19. EE: Single-Channel Guests for non-team members

    For IT policy compliance, offer the ability to invite non-team members users to Mattermost as "single-channel guests" to have access to read and write to one channel and direct message any other users in that channel.

    Potential scenarios include opening discussions with non-team members, including customers, vendors, partners and interview candidates.
