  1. Add ability to move mistaken thread replies in a channel to the intended thread

    If a user misses replying to a thread in a channel and instead replies directly to the channel, this message is not part of the thread that it was intended to be and the conversation is not clear.

    There should be a way for a user or channel admin to move a message to the intended thread inside the channel and keep it inline with the on-going threaded conversation (since everything is timestamped this seems possible).

    This would clean up the conversations and mistakes that users will make.

    • Date and Channel Name

      When we type a message it shows time but not shows date. Please add date with time and if possible also add channel name with time and date.

      We copy the message for our reference. It would be more helpfull if Date and channel name added with time.

      • Include of preview of message in each notification

        Please add setting of notifications 'Include of preview of message in each notification'. This option is needed for personal data protection when you screen sharing with any application like skype.
        On one of your site webpages it says that "Mattermost offers alternative ... to Slack’s SaaS-only workplace messaging service". In Slack's this option exists in Notifications settings.

        • 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.

          • IOS local notifications

            Use local notifications when the app is running or in background. I know that encrypted push notifications are supported when using the enterprise version, but it would be very handy if the app would support local notifications when running in background or foreground for new messages.
            This creates the ability to use the app without sending data around the world.

              • Disable join/leave messages globally

                It would be nice to disable the join/leave messages independently from the user specific setting. We use a channel to post anonymous posts via a bot. People can see who joined and see a link to an anoynmous post.

                  • Add a search to the "Teams you can join" page

                    Yesterday I went to see if there was already a Python group in mattermost for my org, and when I tried to find one by scrolling through the existing groups it didn't seem to be there.

                    I created the page, and was then told that it did in fact exist, but it was a channel under another page. It turned into a big mess, but it could have been avoided if there was a search bar on the page where you check to see what groups already exist. We would want that search to also pick up public channels.

                    • voice channels (like discord or mumble)

                      Would be fantastic for my team to be able to have a static voice channel to join instead of creating a conference every time.

                      • Too many times opening proxy auth dialog

                        In company proxy environment, authentication dialog for proxy open as many as Mattermost server registered in App each time I open Mattermost App.
                        We want to reduce the number of times to open the dialog. (e.g. by setting auth for proxy from environement variables, or by saving auth info to config.json)

                        • Mark Channel as "Read Only" so it remains searchable but nothing new can be posted

                          I often find myself searching old mattermost channels for discussion items, but many of the channels are no longer in use due to a project ending or a team getting re-org'd.

                          It would be cool to have a Read Only or Inactive or Abandoned mode for those channels so I can still search for previous discussions, but they won't get written to anymore.

                            • Add the posibility to select a default team afer login

                              Add the possibility to set a "default" team for every user. Currently the teams i am a member of are sorted alphabetically. If I login via GitLab the first team is selected.
                              I would like to have the option to select a "default" team which is automatically selected after login and not the first in an alphabetically order.

                              • File Archieving Feature

                                I suggest to have a file archieving service that will move old files to an archive repository.
                                If the user tries to access an archieved file, the server must be clever enough to recover that file from the archive repository.

                                - Archive repository could be cloud server or a NAS with FTP service.
                                - Upload files to archive repository whenever the file repository is full or the files are too old(set by the admin. I think 1 month old is enough).
                                - Download files from archive repository will be slower. That’s fine this is an economical solution.
                                - Archive repository…

                                • I forgot my password option on Mobile

                                  There is no option on the mobile apps for a password email to be sent to the user if they have forgotten their password. I have had to instruct them to go on a computer and request a password reset email. I do not know if there is a reason for not having this, but I think it would be a time saver for most users because most users are on mobile only. Thanks!

                                  • Restrict team by email

                                    It is currently possible to restrict account creation to specific email domains via “Settings > Users and Teams > Restrict account creation to specified email domains”; however, once a user has an account, they can be invited to any team, or join any open team.

                                    We would like to be able restrict individual teams to an email domain too. Specifically, we have a group of external contractors who have access to their own team, but we don’t want them to accidentally end up in any of our other teams.

                                    For example, team “Foo” would only allow members from @foo.com, and…

                                    • Android App: Notification on Timeout or Logout

                                      Send Android Users a Notification if they have been logged out.
                                      We previously had session lengths of 1 month. After that, the App silently just doesn't send any more notifications about messages and users forget about it.
                                      Only if you open the App directly, you'll see that you have been logged out.

                                      • Mention notifications should differentiate between “mention you” and “mentioned all”

                                        This seems like an almost fatal flaw. I hope it can be implemented soon as it doesn’t seem like a major project!

                                        • Move thread to another chanel

                                          Sometime, a thread is created in a channel that is the wrong one.

                                          There should be a way to move this channel into another channel with all its answers (by the original user and/or admin).

                                          This option could be added to the [...] menu of (the first?) message of a thread.
