  1. make threads collapsible

    A toggle option so that threads appear as "N comments" and open in the side-panel, so they do not interrupt the main flow of the channel, and you can follow each thread mode easily.

    • 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.

        • Host a repository for the mattermost-desktop Debian package

          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.

          • emoji reaction keyboard shortcut

            This was my most used shortcut in another messaging app that starts with an S and ends with an ack.

            Also to then be able to select emoji with arrow keys and enter is crucial. Would even go a step beyond if shift enter allowed you to pick **more than one emoji reaction!** #Mindblown

            • Allow adding custom words to user and/or team dictionaries.

              Words not in the stock dictionaries are always marked as errors; there's no way around it.

                • Open attached image in browser

                  When trying to view attached images at their full resolution, having to save the image, find where you saved it, and then open it there is quite clunky.

                  It would be better to open the attached image in a browser, users can right click save it from there, and it can easily be maximized there

                  • Disable notifications functionality for defined period of time

                    As a user I want to deactivate Mattermost notifications in my windows desktop application for a defined period of time. After this period the notifications will be shown as before.
                    I can predefine in the period in the setings.
                    I would like to activate this function by right clicking on the system tray icon and choose the action.

                    • Build a thread system similar to Twist

                      As plenty of companies around there we find Slack/Mattermost a bit too chatty at times. More importantly, it sometimes makes it really hard to follow discussion around a specific topic. For now we have two choices :

                      1. Create a specific channel around a topic. But you can start to have a lot of channels really fast
                      2. Use "threads". But to be frank threads implementation is really lacking and not practical for complex discussions

                      A new player,https://twistapp.com/, has an interesting take on this problem. Real time channels still exists, but there is another category of channels, entirely…

                      • I can search easily for a group name on iPhone, but there is not the same convenient matching feature on macOS.

                        I can search easily for a group name on iPhone, but there is not the same convenient matching feature on macOS. Also on iPhone, I see all unread messages at top of list, on macOS I have to scan the whole list to find unread messages. So the macOS client needs to catch up with the iPhone.

                        • Raspberry Pi 3 Model B (ARM 32/64)

                          Raspberry Pi 3 Model B has a 64 Bit CPU as probably all small computers. However the OS still runs on 32 Bit.

                          There should be:
                          - ARM 32 Bit support
                          - ARM 64 Bit support

                                    • Switch the status color indicator to the background of the icon

                                      User icons are okay now on the left side list but would it be even more clear to switch the icon color to white and change the background color for the status? Please check the link for a demo:

                                      • Restrict normal users to invite external users to a private folder

                                        To have better security control and use MM as a viable alternative in an intranet environment, it will be great to have the option at admin level to disallow nornal users to invite external users without admin approval
