  1. Copy / Zoom on image in preview (same as Slack / Skype)

    Integrate similar image previews as in Skype / Slack, rather than just "Download":
    - Enable copy pasting of an image from preview
    - Enable zoom on image when passing mouse over it
    - Open preview in a sub-window for better viewing

  2. Users should be able to delete their datas without any admin intervention.

    Hello,
    cli tool is not user's compliant :)
    Users should be able to delete (not just deactivate) their datas without any admin intervention.

  3. Enable to detect since when a user is offline (manual & disconected)

    Currently, using the UX, we cannot determine the last time a user when offline. this feature is useful and could be compared with flowdock.com, as you can see in the image https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/907914/71488129-12347800-2873-11ea-8b03-867c8fc2b357.png

    Steps to reproduce:
    mattermost Server 5.16+
    Open a conversation 1-1 with any user, and if it is offline, we cannot determine since when that user is offline

    Expected behaviour:

    Open a conversation 1-1 with any user and if is offline. Display as part of user status since when the user is offline.

  4. Have the option to configure special/specific notification sounds based on keywords

    Currently it is not possible to have notifications triggered based on keywords, for example if there are any emergency keywords, a certain ringtone or vibration (or both) will be triggered.

    This would be important in the event of any emergency that requires immediate action.

  5. Forbid to change username

    Add an server wide option to forbid renaming user names. It might be a security problem, if someone claims abandoned user name (/account name).

  6. Button to minimize inline images (ex: GIFs plugin)

    Users can minimize an image preview of an URL that is directly pasted in the message, with the cross button at the top left corner. However, there is no such button if the same image is inlined with the folowwing syntax ![Description'](https://example-url/test.gif).

    It'd be useful to have a way of minimizing inline images, like Slack does and like Mattermost does for raw URL previews.

    This is a follow-up on multiple requests from the users of moussetc/mattermost-plugin-giphy on GitHub (Issue 12).

  7. Team admin should be able to export datas

    Right now, only mattermost instance admin can export teams but only all teams.
    There is two issues:

    It would be a great improvement if team admin could use the user interface (and not has to ask to his instance admin).

  8. 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.

  9. Cannot copy and/or paste text to mattermost

    I am using macOS Mojave and every time I copy some text from a different source (website, text editor) with command C and then try to paste it in a conversation with command V it doesn't work.

    Copy and paste only works if I copy paste with the right click of the mouse, which is slower and more uncomfortable

  10. End-to-end (e2e) encryption support

    This would require major architectural changes for the Mattermost server, but adding some use cases to gather feedback from the community.

    Server admins wouldn't be able to read the content of conversations because they don't hold the keys to decrypt, which means users wouldn't have to worry about
    - Server admins spying on their private conversations
    - Governments subpoening server admins into handing over conversations
    - Hackers taking control of the server being able to read the conversations

  12. Prevent non-admin users from posting and editing to channel

    The use case is to provide information to users, for example, release notes, status updates, etc. In order to keep the channel relevant and to avoid clutter, non-admin users have read-only access.

    This feature allows a team to create "reference" channels.


    1. team admins: create, read, update, delete

    2. non-admin users: read-only

    This idea is similar to, and currently under review for Enterprise Edition:

    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/12874797-add-write-policy-for-channels-and-private-groups#comments

    This idea is related to:

  13. Mattermost Bulk Export Single / Selected Team

    While the current Bulk Export Tool - https://docs.mattermost.com/administration/bulk-export.html#running-the-bulk-export-command - allows backend admins to export all the teams based on the following command:

    sudo ./mattermost export bulk /home/user/bulk_data.json --all-teams

    It will be great to have the ability to export single / selected team to remove any "inactive" teams when moving / migrating systems around.

    The current workaround of removing unwanted teams from the export file is not ideal for instances that have a large number of teams.

  14. Make team tabs optional

    The new wide tab bar steals useful screen real estate, introduces visual redundancy to our single-server setup (team name mentioned twice within a really small area of UI), and makes the app look even less at home on macOS. The old top of the window bar at least looked native. Please consider making the tab bar optional at least in single-server environments.

  16. 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.

  17. Confirm before sending (at)here like it is already implemented for (at)all and (at)channel

    This has already been requested here:

    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/18607111-confirm-with-ping-warning-before-sending-all-eve

    But for some reason, the confirmation has been implemented only for (at)all and (at)channel, which still allows people to use (at)here mindlessly (without realizing they're about to ping sixty or more people, for example).

    So, I kindly request (at)here to be added to this list.

  18. Enable the click on a file link

    Clicking on a file:// link does not work for local folders. On Desktop, it doesn't do anything. On Firefox, it opens a blank page.

    Apparently, this is intentional as explained by @yuya-oc because:
    - Accepting local resources would allow to execute programs via malicious link
    - There is no situation where an user would want to share their local files without attached files.

    In my usecase, we use Nextcloud to sync files within our group. And we have the same letter and path for local files. This is why we often share the file path instead of the file itself,…

  19. Add Gitea OAuth2 Support

    Support Gitea's OAuth2 provider as an authentication source.

    Currently, the team edition only supports GitLab as an OAuth2 source. GitLab is pretty heavyweight and many people prefer other software for a variety of reasons.

    Gitea (https://gitea.io/en-us/) is a really nice open source, community supported Git server. They recently added support for acting as an OAuth2 provider (see https://docs.gitea.io/en-us/oauth2-provider/ for documentation). It would be great if Mattermost would support Gitea as an OAuth2 provider.
