  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.

    • 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.

            • 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.

              • More integration with jira to replace HipChat

                Since HipChat is very buggy it would be nice to have Mattermost fully replace HipChat. That means that the current(beta) integration needs to be expanded to provide at least notifications for comments: craeted, updated and deleted.
                In that way you can get important notifications when you have urgent issues.

                • 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.

                  • Separate "Favorite channels" and "Favorite users"

                    The new "Favorite channels" feature interleaves channels and users. It would be better to separate out "Favorite users", the same way Channels and Direct Messages are separate.

                    • Allow interactive posts to be ephemeral

                      Currently, interactive messages must be of `response_type` `in_channel`, and I think that interactive messages would be greatly more useful as ephemeral, as that will allow messages to be modified such as Slack's giphy integration, where the user can look through a set of images before choosing the one to post to the channel.

                      It would also be useful as generic confirmation dialogs, or similar use cases

                      • 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.

                        • Blacklist certain file types from being uploaded to Mattermost

                          Sample use case: Block .exe files from being uploaded to prevent malicious executables from being downloaded.

                          In addition to .exe, also interested in blocking PDF files and compressed files.

                            • Provide for multiple fonts

                              Recently the ability to choose fonts was removed. See https://forum.mattermost.org/t/removing-font-setting/3367. Now there is only one font, and it renders poorly for me (insufficient weight/contrast) on smaller high DPI displays. This makes the GUI very hard to use. Please provide a way to select among a set of fonts, or ideally specify my own.

                              Frankly the justification for removing the feature was weak. Let the user decide if the load time or other trade offs are worth the better rendering.

                                • Add a system console option to hide the "Leave Team" button

                                  For instances that only use one team, the option to leave the team is not useful.

                                  Please add an option to the system console to hide the button or add a user permission for this function.
                                  The user permission would be the preferred way to handle this to be prepared for growing instances.

                                    • Allow custom emojis to appear in default dimensions

                                      Hey guys,

                                      I really like the product, would be possible to display the custom emojis in their default size? Similar the way we post a picture with a direct link in a conversation. Would be nice to have not only the default emoji sizes (I'm aware of the possibility to use # to make the gifs and pictures smaller/bigger), but if we could add and save them in a larger state. Currently any meme which has writings on it can not be seen well, and we know that memes=life. Thank sin advance!

                                      • search through all teams

                                        Right now the scope of the search feature is limited to the current team. It would be great to have option allowing to specify the scope: channel, team, global (for example)
