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.7 votes

Description of groups should revert back to 2 line or be customizable. Currently I see only first 2 letters of each group name which si useless17 votes
Allow Mattermost App on Windows select specific Web Browser for opening links
Default to OS default web browser, but allow Mattermost to override the OpenIn browser selection.1 vote
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)1 vote
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.1 vote
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).3 votes
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.2 votes
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.

Microsoft now supports pinning conversations within applications to the taskbar through what they call the My People API:
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.1 vote
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.1 vote
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:
Open channels and direct messages in different windows (Desktop apps)
Right now we use Mattemost for communication about projects and Spark/Jabber/XMPP for direct messages. The reason we prefer Spark over Mattermost is that we can have each communication in a different app window and that makes it easier if you communicate with more people at once. Typical use case is that you send a question to your colleague and keep the window open until you get the answer.8 votes
Use AppData/Local for cached data on Windows
For Windows all local Mattermost data is stored inside of %APPDATA% (AppData/Roaming).
This directory syncs between computers on every login / logout in certain corporate environments.
Cache data should be placed inside AppData/Local.2 votes
CTRL+F performs a browser-like search in the desktop app
One missing piece in the desktop apps is CTRL+F browser-like search.
There is a plan to implement 'search in current channel' (https://github.com/mattermost/desktop/issues/305), but implementing the browser-like find feature is closer to the web app experience
There is existing electron APIs for finding something on the page: http://electron.atom.io/docs/api/web-contents/#contentsfindinpagetext-options1 vote
Preprovision native client apps
As i'm rolling out the native Windows client to a lot of users (via windows software distribution) i'd like to be able to pre-provision the app with our mattermost servers url (and maybe other settings). It would be great if the client would support some way of getting it's initial configuration for example via a config file distributed with it.
I've posted it to the windows category but i guess this would be nice (and just as easy to implement) on every platform. Mobile apps might be more difficult though.23 votesstarted · Adminmattermost.org (Moderator, Mattermost) responded
This feature is in progress and planned to ship with Desktop App v4.0
Try to use less CPU / energy in native Mac App
Right now the Mattermost native Mac app is using a lot of CPU, pretty consistently over 10%, which seems really high for an app of this type. What could it possibly be doing to use that much CPU? The energy impact is almost up there with known battery drainers like Chrome and Firefox. I know it's a beta, so please consider this some beta-user feedback. Thanks!9 votes
