  1. add keyboard shortcut to jump to last message in the channel

    When switching to a channel after a long hiatus, it is common to have many unread messages in it. Often, old messages are not very important any more, and the user wants to immedately scroll to the end of the list, and maybe from there check the last 2-3 pages (or days) of messages.
    This is commonly done with the CTRL+END shortcut on windows.

    Note: it seems that a hackish workaround is currently to switch to the channel, switch to another channel, and then come back. The second switch marks all old messages as read, and the 3rd will position…

  3. Delete channels

    Hello,

    I would like to have the possibility that channels whether private or public can be permanently deleted by system administrators.
    So you can save resources in the database and keep a better overview of the remaining channels.

  5. Audio Volume Control

    I've found that the volume level for notifications in the app can quite loud compared to other apps. Is it possible to add some internal setting that allows for scaling the volume of notifications?

  6. Don't cover message text with the hover toolbar buttons

    When I point at a message, a group of about 4 icons appears at the top right of the message. My annoyance is that this icon group covers part of the text of the message I'm trying to read. Please reposition this button group so that it does not obscure the text.

  7. Feature to enable Auto theme switch based on MacOS theme

    Introduce an "Auto mirror OS theme" toggle button in Mattermost Desktop for MacOS (and possibly Windows) client so it can mirror the MacOS theme setting (Settings > General > Appearance) Light and Dark automatically.

    Many users would want to use dark themes for their apps to work at night, but Mattermost default theme is pretty bright in the dark.

    Right now it should be a manual theme change to switch to the Mattermost dark theme. This would be a great step towards better user experience.

  8. Click the file to open


    1. App sets an automatic download directory, such as $HOME\Documents\Mattermost Files\

    2. Add an "open" button beside the download button on the right side of the file in the chat.

    3. When you click the "Open" button, if the file has not been downloaded, it will be automatically downloaded to the download folder in the first step. At the same time, the download progress bar will be displayed below the file in the chat. After the download is complete, or the file has been downloaded, call the system program to open the file.

  9. memorize login

    I installed last v4.3.2 mattermost-desktop on my Ubuntu 18 laptop. I didn't find any solution to memorize my logins, so each morning, I have to enter it.

  10. Allow a user list in the right-hand side bar

    The right hand sidebar for the Mattermost client seems to only support searching. Many chat-apps like Slack, Discord, and others include a list of users in the current channel in a sidebar that can be displayed at all times. I think this would be a great feature!

  11. Get alerted when the status of another user changes

    I would like to get alerted when another user comes online.

    In the proprietary messaging application that is also used in our organization, this feature is available as a right-click menu item labeled "Tag for Status Change Alerts", i.e. you can switch on/off alerts per user. I have always found it very useful so it would be a nice addition to Mattermost.

  12. Enable Notifications when Mattermost is not Visible to the User

    If a chat is selected when the desktop app is not visible or minimized, the user will not receive notifications for any new messages sent within the chat.

    For example, If I am talking to Bob, then I shrink the desktop app with his name still selected in the left hand pane, or I open a new window and cannot see the Mattermost app, it wont notify me of a new message from Bob unless I make sure to click on a different chat window with someone else prior to moving my attention away from Mattermost.

    I understand we wouldnt…

  13. Make desktop app take focus when notifications pop up.

    Have an option in the notification settings to allow the app to take focus of the desktop. I am getting push back that notifications are not obvious enough, especially for people who were away from their desk for a bit. This is causing urgent messages to be missed. They are used to our previous solution that did take focus when there was a new message and made it next to impossible to not notice.

  14. Option to allow hiding the server tabs bar

    I would love to be able to hide the top server tabs bar on my single-server setup. Lots of wasted space when I don't have any other servers. I like to have the window fairly small, sort of old-school instant-messaging style, and when I do, 5% of the height of the window is taken up by the tabs bar (yes, I'm that kind of person where I measured the height of my window in pixels and the height of the tabs bar using GIMP).

    Even if I were connected to other servers, I could switch servers using a keyboard shortcut…

  15. Make 'reply to last message in a channel' a default option

    Enable the ability for a user org/admin to make 'reply to the last message in a channel' the default option when starting a new message, so threads are the default for a conversation. This could perhaps also be optionally limited to replies that explicitly start with or contain an 'at-mention' of the handle of the creator of the original post.

  16. Support Protobuf Syntax

  18. Snooze channel for 1h, 8hrs or 24hhrs

    It would be nice to be able to mute a channel for a set period of time then it automatically unmute itself. Facebook Messenger has a similar feature called Snooze.

  20. Add filter to show only channels with unread messages (or recent activity)

    I like Mattermost but frequently the list of collaborators gets long and I have to scroll between active chats.

    I think a filter feature would be useful to show only certain chats, e.g.
    - channels with unread messages
    - filter by text

    Combined with "pinned channels" this would help to focus on the active stuff even without giving Mattermost an entire (large) screen.
