  1. Allow selecting and deleting multiple messages at once

    Allow Channel Admins to be able to enter "select" or "edit" mode where checkboxes appear next to the messages.
    Admins would be able to select messages one by one or to select a range of messages by clicking the first one, holding Shift button and selecting the last one (like we've used from other software).

    After selecting multiple messages, Admins would be able to delete them at once, or perform any other action that might be implemented during the development (move, archive, flag, something else).

    This feature would make it a lot easier to delete whole bunches of off-topic messages…

  3. Make emoji replacement a separate option from the rest of post formatting

    I consider it unacceptable that I can't choose to disable having my words replaced with emoji, without also having to give up on EVERY SINGLE post formatting feature. I want to be able to use post formatting, just NOT have any emoji appear without me explicitly choosing to insert them.

  4. Allow for tighter spacing in the sidebar

    Currently tons of space is being wasted in the sidebar. Allow for tighter spacing of channel/user names so more of the list can be displayed at once.

  5. More events support for Mattermost Webhooks

  6. Show nicknames on each line while in compact mode

    There should be an option to show the nickname on each line, when using compact mode. As a long-time IRC user, I expect to have the name repeated on each line.
    This is specially annoying when the "New Messages" marker shows, where it should ALWAYS show the name in the line following the marker.

  7. Disable taskbar badge for specified channel(s), but keep channel name in bold for unread general messages

    In the notification preferences for a channel (probably under Mark Channel Unread), I'd like to have the ability to disable the application icon badge in the taskbar unless someone mentions me or the whole channel, while still keeping the channel name in bold for any general messages.

    That way, when I open the app, I can see which channels have general messages for me to catch up on (b/c the channel name will be in bold), but I don't get drawn to the app by taskbar icon badges for channels that I don't want to be notified about while I'm…

  8. Transition to TypeScript

    Transition the repo into being written in TypeScript for higher quality code with better linting and all the benefits TypeScript adds.

  9. CMD/CTRL+number should switch teams

    Hitting CMD+1 should select the first team, CMD+2 should select the next etc. (I guess this translates to ctrl on Linux / Windows).

    Right now its a lot of mouse movement to switch between teams.

  11. Include Racially Diverse Emojis

    Currently, all of the default emojis (people, hands, etc) on the desktop app have a light yellow skin tone. Since you are already using apple emojis, it would be awesome to integrate the ability to change the skin and hair tone of these emojis.

  12. allow users to add reactions to room join/leave announcements.

    Adding reactions on channel join/leave announcements is hilarious in Slack. Please add this.

  13. Automatic update for desktop client

    The Mattermost desktop client should automatically check for updates and prompt the user to update. This feature is mandatory in today's security landscape, even for an Electron app.

    Most of our users don't realize their desktop is many version out of date, with pending security fixes.

    Bonus points for shipping builds via the Windows Store, macOS App Store, snapcraft, etc.

  14. Make the loading screen match the user's theme colour.

    Hi!

    At the moment, no matter which theme you have selected (dark, light), the startup / loading screen is white with blue logo.

    My eyes adapt slowly to such strong shifts in brightness, and I would love it if would respect my preferences and be dark if a dark theme was selected.

    I posted this as an issue on GIthub, but was asked to move it here: https://github.com/mattermost/desktop/issues/985

  15. Unread message notifier in launcher icon in Linux

    On Ubuntu 19.04, the mattermost desktop client does not indicate unread messages in the launcher (I mean adding a little pop-up symbol to the icon as shown in this post about Windows #194).

    I don't know if that is intended (no comparison on other systems). For thunderbird a similar thing exists, but I wouldn't know how to implement right away. I suggest a permanent "red dot" indicating new messages, or optionally a counter.

  16. Add a file download progress bar

    You constantly need to check Explorer to see if file has finished downloaded or not, very bothersome. A progress bar / download indicator will be very helpful.

  17. Add an option to hide the menu bar

    In the desktop client, it could be useful to have an option to hide the menu bar by default (Signal desktop has this, also an Electron-based app), since it's not used that much in day-to-day usage. It could appear when pressing alt (Signal does this, as well as Firefox). Ideally I'd like the application to be more in-line with Gnome design, using a headerbar, but I realize this would be larger thing, and may not be desirable in a third-party application…

  18. 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.

  19. Add support for Mattermost Custom URL scheme on macOS

    Hello,

    MacOS recently added support for custom URL schemes which allows other apps and browsers to open permalinks to content in the native app (rather than in the browser).

    The use case would be that when you get an email to a Mattermost permalink, and you click on it in Safari, it'll open in the Mattermost app rather than a new tab in Safari.

    The instructions to adopt custom URL schemes can be found here:

    https://developer.apple.com/documentation/uikit/core_app/allowing_apps_and_websites_to_link_to_your_content/defining_a_custom_url_scheme_for_your_app

    Thanks a lot for a great product!

  20. Have the ability to jump directly to the first message in a channel

    When a user needs to scroll up through a lot of history, it can take a lot of time and effort. It would be much better if there was a button or ability letting users to jump directly to the first message in a channel.
