  1. Easy to use server side encryption for every server like in Nextcloud

    Having secure "at rest" data on the server is very important for data safety, especially due to the new privacy laws within the European Union. Nextcloud for example offers an easy to use server side encryption for its services within the settings. No special software is neesed.

    Our organisation really wishes an easy to setup server side encryption within the dashboard.

    • MSI installer for windows client

      We need a MSI file for automated (silent) installation. That way you can deploy the application with the group policy of windows.

      • Allow users to choose the Teammate Name Display option

        From version 4.0 the Teammate Name Display option is an administrator only option for the reasons explained at https://forum.mattermost.org/t/switching-teammate-name-display-to-a-system-console-setting/3366

        Please add another option in the _System Console_ under _Users and Teams_ "Allow users to choose Teammate Name Display" which allows users to choose how to display users' names in posts and the Direct Messages list.

        We understand that the name in the push notification would not reflect an individual user's preferences; this would be totally fine for us (but it probably should be mentioned in the description text of the new option).

        The main thing is that our users prefer…

          • make threads collapsible

            A toggle option so that threads appear as "N comments" and open in the side-panel, so they do not interrupt the main flow of the channel, and you can follow each thread mode easily.

            • Allow users to adjust the display size for in-message text

              The message text is currently too small for my liking. It would be wonderful if we could allow users to adjust the display size of the text. Slack for instance lets you do this to some extent. Even a choice between 'small, medium, large, extra large' would be great. Thank you

              • Sub-comment

                Hi,

                please implement this code to all CSS templates:

                .post.same--root.post--comment, .post.same--root.same--user.post--comment {
                padding-left: 4em;
                }

                so chat look like this:

                http://www.image-share.com/ipng-3649-129.html

                We are using it some time, and chat is more clear to read.

                Many thanks.

                Miroslav

                • Allow emoji reactions to trigger outgoing webhooks

                  Just like it is possible to trigger outgoing webhooks from specific keywords, it'd be nice to trigger an outgoing webhook from a emoji reaction on a message.

                  The idea is to allow the message being reacted to to be sent to another system where it could be parsed and analysed for further action.

                  • Support Mattermost behind Basic Auth

                    Currently, Mattermost Server usage behind Basic Auth is limited/handicapped due to authentication issues caused by the websocket connection (as it seems, basic auth headers are not propagated correctly).

                    In our company, public services must be at least secured by basic auth. I guess other companies have same restrictions.

                    So basic auth support would be a nice feature.

                    • Report duplicate AD/LDAP information rather than setting usernames to random strings every hour

                      When the AD/LDAP User Filter is too permissive, multiple user objects with the same Email Attribute may be returned. When this happens, and the Username Attribute is not present on the returned value, Mattermost may reset the username of the existing user with the same email address to a random string. This repeats every 60 minutes (or whatever the Synchronization Interval is set to).

                      For example, if two LDAP objects are returned:
                      { userclass=contact, email=myusername@example.com }
                      { userclass=user, sAMAccountName=myusername, email=myusername@example.com }

                      In this case, Mattermost may cause username@example.com's account to have its user id changed to a…

                            • Google MFA Authenticator subject should be the URL not just "Mattermost"

                              #### Summary
                              When using "Scan barcode" to automatically configure Google Authenticator for MFA the subject is always "Mattermost".

                              #### Steps to reproduce
                              1. Enable LDAP.
                              2. Enable Multi-factor authentication.
                              3. When a user scans the barcode to configure Google Authenticator the subject of the account is always Mattermost.
                              4. If you use couple of instances of Mattermost (example test+prod) you can't distinguish which code to use and can't login to Mattermost.

                              #### Expected behavior
                              1. The subject of the account should be the url of the Mattermost instance you are configuring MFA for.

                              • Allow interactive message button clicks to edit buttons on message

                                Currently, when a user clicks on an interactive message button, MM sends a request to a remote web server with some information. When the server responds, it can send in a Message json blob, but this does not allow you to change the buttons on the message.

                                For example, if I were making a poll integration, there might be vote buttons, and after voting, I might update the button message to thank the user, and present them with the options to see the results or hide the message. Currently this is not possible.

                                  • Consolidate display of join/leave messages into a single System Message

                                    Where lots of users join, I find it interferes with seeing real content. Any screen is dominated by System join messages.

                                    • allow multiple users to edit a post

                                      We'd like to edit each others posts, e.g., for meeting reports and the like. Before, we used Slack, and found this feature really useful.

                                      • Implement emoji picker for iOS (same as already implemented for reactions)

                                        A lot of our team members ask for this feature, as using iOS system emoji keyboard leads to ??? on other platforms. Would be really helpful to have an iOS emoji picker in the same style which is already implemented for reactions. The current system (typing : and emoji name) is not really working, especially for new team members.
