  2. Mattermost in the Microsoft Store

    I would wish that you can install Mattermost as a client directly from the Microsoft Store in Windows 10. This would be an advantage, especi

  3. Create Tear Away Chat Windows

    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.

  4. Inline webm viewer

    Show webm (and maybe mp4 as well if supported compression like x264) inline instead of having to click on the download button to view it. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. Touchbar integration

    How about adding touchbar integration for the latest Macbook Pros? This is one thing that HipChat had that was quite useful - could be used for emoji search, setting away/dnd status, etc.

    Thoughts?

  10. Add a Windows universal app so that Windows 10 Mobile rollouts can use Mattermost

    Let's go Windows Universal with this, and bring Mattermost to a whole new market of Windows 10 Mobile users who're waiting for first party apps for apps just like this. Then Mattermost truly becomes a Slack competitor.

  11. Release RPM packages for those on rpm-based systems

    I recently switched to fedora and now i can't install the mattermost desktop app using rpm - because there's no rpm package.

    Thus I suggest you also release a rpm package (thanks to electron-builder this should be a pretty easy task)

  12. 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

  13. Desktop Notification should allow to answer right away (Desktop App, macOS)

    On macOS, Desktop Notifications can offer a "Reply" Button in order to allow a user to answer to a message right from the received notification, which is very handy. I wish to have this feature in the Mattermost Desktop app as some of my users have used Hipchat before and they complain this feature is not available in Mattermost.

  15. CTRL+F on Windows Desktop app puts cursor in Mattermost search box filtered to channel

    In the browser CTRL+F brings up text search for the page, so propose in the Windows Desktop app CTRL+F brings up Mattermost search pre-filtered to the channel to have a similar effect.

    Other than the ability to search a page, the browser and desktop app have almost the same functionality.

    Adding this would make the experiences more equivalent, rather than having desktop just slightly degraded.

  18. make Shift-Up select from the list of recent messages to reply to

    Currently Shift-Up allows for a quick reply to the latest message, but what if someone just said something and the one you want is no longer the latest?

    Repeated presses could move up through the message history, allowing to reply to a message that isn't the latest.

    Likewise, Shift-Down (currently unused) could move down the list (and, optionally, all the way back to the main input field like Ctrl-Shift-L)

  19. Notificiation settings per server

    If using Mattermost with more than one Server it would be great if the user could have separate notification settings or the option to mute one or more selected servers.

  20. maintain right hand sidebar (RHS) open state, when switching between teams (4.1.2)

    Every time I switch between teams, the sidebar closes.

    I'm looking to have the sidebar open 100% of the time, because it's functionally useful and it's more cognitive load when screen looks different after every team switch (often).
