  1. 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.

  2. Bring profile photos from AD when AD/LDAP synchronization configured

    A lot of AD forests have Profile Photos in them. Mattermost provides no administrative capability to set profile photos. Therefore, just yank them out of AD? Would prevent complex UI from being necessary and give us AD admins a more fancy way :)

  3. Ability to upload videos with size over 50mb

    In the iOS application, you need to be able to choose the degree of video compression at startup. This is necessary so that you can compress videos and upload them. Now, when you try to upload a video clip, the video is primarily compressed, but since the compression algorithms are not good enough, the video still weighs too much and cannot be uploaded. Please fix it.

  4. unlimited search results

    for the default search backend (sql), search results are capped at 100!

    you can verify this by loading jquery and doing:

    $('.search-item__container').length;

    you can see that paging isn't supported:

    https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/app/post.go#L821

    and the sql uses LIMIT 100:

    https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/store/sqlstore/post_store.go#L834

    i know this isn't an issue in enterprise because you're using elasticsearch, but please either bring elasticsearch to team edition or fix the default search backend. 100 results is sad :(

  6. Enable a setting to allow sound alerts on a channel basis

    I love that I can get notified when there is a post with a sound. But we have a community channel that a huge number of people belong to where things are discussed that I'm not interested in. I was added to the channel by my boss, and think it would be rude to disconnect. But if I could just turn off the notifications for that channel then I wouldn't be so distracted looking at many many notifications that have nothing to do with me and my work. Thanks for letting us make suggestions to make Matermost even better! Our…

  7. Restrict BigBlueButton to allowed users

    As of now, mattermost custom integration plugin is available to all users on Team edition. It will be good if there is a restriction like "personal access token" can be enabled for particular users.

  8. Voice Messages Record and Play

    The same way we can send messages, we should be able to send voice messages.

    It should be as simple as click "add voice", record what you want, press send and it's made available on the server for others to listen.

    It should be supported by browser and mobile client apps.

  10. Cybercriminals and scammers

    Improve digital purchase habits and break into legitimate online purchases through cyber criminals and scammers. Due to the large numbers of transactions that are conducted in small quantities, the holidays are the ideal time for hackers and identity thieves to commit identity fraud.

  12. member list

    Member list on side of chat window w/ status indicator

    Show a member list on the side of the chat window listing all the users that are in the current room, sorted by status and then name (so that logged out users are at the bottom).

    This seems critical to communication .. who's in the room, who's online, who am I talking to, am I in the right room before typing @everyone, etc. At a glance. The little member button with drop down is insufficient especially in rooms with hundreds of people.

    This is a repost, but the original is…

  13. Add ability to convert DMs into private channels

    This is a really useful feature in Slack when you realize a topic deserves a dedicated channel, but want the DM history to become a part of it:

  14. Configurable desktop notifications duration

    Mattermost is intended to be team collaboration and messaging tool.
    It functions fine when working with channels which are similar to forums or IRC channels.

    But when sending direct messages, the user experience is quite bad because desktop notifications disappear after 5 seconds and when user is concentrating to something else or is AFK he will miss the notification and doesn't know that someone is trying to reach him.

    It would be great if there was a configuration option where user can choose how long the notification should be displayed.

    This feature was already implemented in v3.4, but was removed…

  15. Automatic update for desktop client

    The Mattermost desktop client should automatically check for updates and prompt the user to update. This feature is mandatory in today's security landscape, even for an Electron app.

    Most of our users don't realize their desktop is many version out of date, with pending security fixes.

    Bonus points for shipping builds via the Windows Store, macOS App Store, snapcraft, etc.

  16. Automatically join consecutive messages from the same person

    For threading purposes it'd be great if consecutive messages from the same person (maybe within some time window like 10 minutes) would be counted as a single message.

    We use mattermost for an internal support chat and very often we get stuff like

    "Hi!"
    "I have this issue with the fronk, for customer Acme"
    <screenshot>
    "Could someone take a look?"

    You can't reply to any of those messages without losing crucial information in the thread.

  17. System Administrator: Ability to Import Users via CSV / Excel File

    While system administrator are limited to only have the following methods to create / import users:
    * Local users: mattermost user create CLI, direct invite, team invite link
    * External users: LDAP / AD / SAML

    It will be good to have the ability to use CSV or Excel file to bulk import the users with specific formatting especially if the organization has a lot of customers and is not utilizing AD / LDAP / SSO.

  18. Allow selecting and deleting multiple messages at once

    Allow Channel Admins to be able to enter "select" or "edit" mode where checkboxes appear next to the messages.
    Admins would be able to select messages one by one or to select a range of messages by clicking the first one, holding Shift button and selecting the last one (like we've used from other software).

    After selecting multiple messages, Admins would be able to delete them at once, or perform any other action that might be implemented during the development (move, archive, flag, something else).

    This feature would make it a lot easier to delete whole bunches of off-topic messages…

  20. Make history of last channels with part of last message on CTRL+K window

    Make history of last channels with part of last message on CTRL+K window. Because when you have many chat channels, it becomes difficult to navigate between them and remember where was your last important conversation.
