Mute channel categories
For example I have categories for different projects, would be great to mute all of a project's channels while I'm focussing on a different one.1 vote
Channel Creator Info for Desktop & Web App
While the Mattermost Mobile app has the feature of tapping on the channel header to see more information that includes who created the channel and the date:
"Created by XXX on XXX XX, XXXX"
Users have to scroll all the way to the beginning of the channel for desktop and web app. This will be challenging especially for channels that have a lot of content.
It will be great if we can have similar feature for desktop and web app as well where users can click on the channel header > view info and show the same information.4 votes
Allow users to choose the Audio device for notifications, including 'All Devices'
In the desktop app, the user is able to select which windows audio device, or All Devices, is used for notification. The option to follow the OS' current selection, or override with your own selection. Sometimes when using the headset as the default OS output device, it would be nice for alerts to be played on the external speakers and/or headset, as chosen by the user1 vote
Notify a user when they are removed from a channel
When a user is removed from a channel, they aren't notified in any way - the channel just disappears from their window. It would be helpful to indicate that you've been removed.24 votes
Private channels and messages to be sorted by the date of last received message
I think it would be preferable for the list of private channels and messages to be sorted by the date of last received message.
Currently this list is sorted alphabetically and it's impossible to find last messages if you receive a lot of it.8 votes
Make CMD+Enter work as a shortcut for saving an edited message.
Currently, when people have "Send messages with CMD+Enter", this shortcut does not work in the message editing window and people have to save their edited messages with a mouse click.
I propose the message editing window to behave the same as the message sending box works.

Sort users by last name in private chat list
In my opinion, it is very usefull to sort users by their last name. Now they are sorted by first name and it is very annoying. We have more people with same forename but fewer with same last name. It is more logical to sort them alpaphetically by last name than forename.1 vote
Synchronise drafts between (mobile and desktop) clients
I currently use Mattermost from the web client and an iPhone. It would be great if draft messages were synchronised between the different clients.
This is not something that sounds particularly useful in the abstract, but it is a feature of Telegram and I found I would often write half a message and then remember that I had a relevant link or similar on a different platform, so want to continue the message where I could copy-paste that link. Now that we have switched to using Mattermost, I am missing it.1 vote
Chronological message stream over all channels
Sometimes I read a message in one channel, get desturbed and get more messages in other channels. Later I want to go back to the first message, but cannot remember/find the channel anymore. In this case it would be handy to have a view of all messages from all channels in chronological order.4 votes
Quick Markdown insert
Multiple ways to implement this :
- Select a word, then right-click and chose a formatting option (bold, italic, code, etc)
- Select a word and like in Office apps chose formatting options in a toolbar
- Add keyboard shortcuts to add a specific markdown
- Add most used markdowns under the input and make them clickable to insert them
- Add an icon to add markdown (like the Emoji icon)
Sort joinable public channels by activity
When there are many public channels to join, many are defunct. New users cannot distinguish these from active channels in the More Channels modal. It would be nice to see the most active channels first, see some measure of how active each is, and perhaps see how many people are in each channel.3 votes
Expand image previews in Compact Message Display mode
I would like to be able to see a preview of the attached image even if I am in Compact Message Display Mode.
Currently, even if the Account Settings > Display > Default appearance of image previews is set to Expanded, the image is only displayed as an attachment icon when Account Settings > Display > Message Display is set to Compact. These two settings should work independently of each other.18 votes
Start Windows application in foreground
Allow Windows app to be started in foreground, instead of being started in tray.6 votes
Make team switch shortcut configurable
Please, make the keyboard shortcut CTRL+ALT+number for switching teams configurable.
Since the update, which brought this feature earlier this year, I'm unable to use the Mattermost Windows app, because I'm using czech programmers keyboard, which uses CTRL+ALT+numbers to type czech characters.
Typing is automatic process and it's not really possible to avoid typing czech characters this way. It's not a solution to re-learn typing because of Mattermost or switching keyboards before typing.3 votes
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.53 votes
Move the (edited) indicator on the same line as the edited text
I propose that the "(edited)" indicator is moved to the same line of the text that got edited. This is also how it is done in the Android app (and in Slack). Currently, in the Linux application (within Rambox), a new line is created just to show the "(edited)" indicator. I think this is a waste of space.
I think the fix is easy. The indicator got introduced here: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/pull/4923/files#diff-aba2376d04d1b8049e404bf2685c887fR91
So this has to be changed to not make a newline but instead put the indicator right after the rendered text.

"Next unread channel" keyboard shortcut should jump to unread in next Team if no unread in current team
Currently, you can use the "Next Unread channel" shortcut in the apps (e.g. Alt + Shift + Down) to jump to the next unread channel. If there are no more unread channels in the current team, but the next team in your team list has unreads, then the shortcut should jump to that team and the first unread channel there.5 votes
Allow Emoji in Channel Name

Have a button which takes you to the next (oldest) unread message.
If you have a lot of channels (some of which may be off the screen), it may useful to have a 'Next Unread' button which jumps you to the earliest unread message.2 votes
