  1. Date and Channel Name

    When we type a message it shows time but not shows date. Please add date with time and if possible also add channel name with time and date.

    We copy the message for our reference. It would be more helpfull if Date and channel name added with time.

    • Include of preview of message in each notification

      Please add setting of notifications 'Include of preview of message in each notification'. This option is needed for personal data protection when you screen sharing with any application like skype.
      On one of your site webpages it says that "Mattermost offers alternative ... to Slack’s SaaS-only workplace messaging service". In Slack's this option exists in Notifications settings.

      • Ability to disable rendering of animated emoji, or to hide posts, to improve performance

        The problem I am having is that in some channels when users are using tons of animated emojis, I am seeing my CPU sit at >=30%. If I then switch to a more static channel, the CPU usage drops off the top of the list.

        The feature I would love is to either:
        * Have the ability to disable the rendering of animated emojis (or gifs?)
        * Or to have the ability to hide posts

        Currently I have to make sure never to leave a heavy animated channel as my active channel.

        • Too many times opening proxy auth dialog

          In company proxy environment, authentication dialog for proxy open as many as Mattermost server registered in App each time I open Mattermost App.
          We want to reduce the number of times to open the dialog. (e.g. by setting auth for proxy from environement variables, or by saving auth info to config.json)

          • Add shortcut to close current channel/direct chat

            Hello!

            It would be great to have a shortcut to close current channel or direct chat.

            It could be CTRL+F4 or CTRL+W.

            • Give the option to move Direct Messages to the right of the channels (In between Channels & Chat)

              It would be nice to be able to move the Teams / Channels / Direct Messages in separate blocks so to be customizable.

              Right now i have alot of channels and my direct messages are all the way down. If i could move the direct messages to the right of the channels i think it would be neatly organized.

              Teams > Channels > Direct Messages > Chat window

              Cheers,

                  • Show Emoji picker for current message when hovering on message and typing space

                    It is a bit cumbersome to select an emoji reaction since the button is fairly small and all the way to the right. I suggest to open the emoji reaction picker when hovering on a message and typing space.

                      • windows people

                        **Summary**
                        Microsoft now supports pinning conversations within applications to the taskbar through what they call the My People API:

                        https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/contacts-and-calendar/my-people-support

                        It looks like it primarily supports windows store apps/c#, so it might not be possible to do with electron/node. It's also OS-specific, which isn't really beneficial to the app as a whole.

                        • add the ability to preview messages, or a larger editor in the RHB

                          It would be really great to be able to have a preview of a message before it's sent. Putting a full-size, WYSIWYG-able editor available in the right-hand bar would make it easier to compose longer messages, especially if you need to reference other posts inside of Mattermost.

                          • Add the posibility to have a list of teams instead of the very small squares in the teams column

                            The small squares of team names are very difficult to find a team in as the team name does not fit in the little square.
                            I would like to have the option to have a list similar to the one with topics within a team instead of those small squares.

                              • Add a font which is readable without Anti Aliasing

                                With release v4.0 release (July 16, 2017) the ability to choose fonts was removed. The one and only font (Open Sans) is quite unreadable if Anti Aliasing is switched off. Please think about people with handicaps which cannot use Anti Aliasing because of their eyes.

                                Please add at least one font (as Arial or Ubuntu from pre 4.0) or provide a simple description of how someone can do this for a local installation.

                                  The desktop app is WAY too clunky to permit multiple simultaneous conversations.

                                  Mattermost needs "tear away" chat windows like Google Hangouts so that you can have side by side chats going.

The video can already be played inside the mattermost app, but not inline. Right now our users use unnecessary large gifs to share animations because they work inline in the chat window.

                                    • Provide for multiple fonts

                                      Recently the ability to choose fonts was removed. See https://forum.mattermost.org/t/removing-font-setting/3367. Now there is only one font, and it renders poorly for me (insufficient weight/contrast) on smaller high DPI displays. This makes the GUI very hard to use. Please provide a way to select among a set of fonts, or ideally specify my own.

                                      Frankly the justification for removing the feature was weak. Let the user decide if the load time or other trade offs are worth the better rendering.

                                          It is nice to have a .deb package for mattermost-desktop, but it would be even easier to have a repository we can add to sources.list so the app can be easily updated.
