  1. Quick Markdown insert

    Multiple ways to implement this :


    • Select a word, then right-click and chose a formatting option (bold, italic, code, etc)

    • Select a word and like in Office apps chose formatting options in a toolbar

    • Add keyboard shortcuts to add a specific markdown

    • Add most used markdowns under the input and make them clickable to insert them

    • Add an icon to add markdown (like the Emoji icon)

  2. Desktop app: Add Change status option to Taskbar tray

    In Windows, when you make a right-click on the notification tray icon, it would be nice to add a "Change status" option to switch easily between online, away, or busy.

  3. Add a button to scroll all the way to first new message

    When rejoining a conversation after many new messages have been posted, if you want to catch up on what you missed, you have to scroll up to the top, click the 'load more messages' button, scroll up to the top, click 'load more messages, ad nauseum, till eventually you reach a point where the "New Messages" line is no longer at the top, then scroll back down till you find the "New Messages" line again.

    I think it would be very useful if there was a button (I would name it "load new messages") that appeared along with the 'load…

  4. Combine messages from same user into one message

    This was completed before:

    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/8684005-unite-messages-of-the-same-user

    But it looks like it only works in the full view when the left blue sidebar with channels is showing, not when the window is smaller and hides the sidebar.

  5. Integration with osTicket

    It would be great to have an integration with the osTicket platform to be able to receive notifications of new tickets or ticket updates.

    In addition, it would be even better to be able to send messages to the osTicket API to create new tickets.

  7. Support ip and mac text search

    The docs explains that:

    "IP addresses, for example 10.100.200.101, do not return results."
    (https://docs.mattermost.com/help/getting-started/searching.html#hashtags)

    I would like to be able to search on ip-strings from my messages.

  9. Add support for CSS themes

    I'm not happy with the current theme system. We can change only colors, but I would like to change a bit everything, to get something looking for instance like The Lounge:

    https://thelounge.chat/

    Things I would like to change:
    - typography
    - borders + shadow and radius
    - margins and paddings

    It would be quite easy if we could upload a piece of CSS based on a few class selectors. Like:


    .app__content {
    box-shadow: 0 0 25px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.75);
    z-index: 10;
    border-radius: 5px;
    }

  10. Have a reusable authentication link for guest accounts

    For guest accounts, right now they have to authenticate manually via credentials.

    It would be useful for the guests if there could be a link that they can use to instantly authenticate into the server.

  11. Make guest accounts expire after a set period of time

    Currently guest accounts are permanent until removed by the admins.

    It would be more convenient and secure if guest accounts have an automatic expiry date after a certain period of time.

  12. Have the option to enable 2FA authentication only for certain IP ranges

    Currently when we enable 2FA authentication, it is either enabled for all users or not at all, without any option to have a more granular approach.

    It would be great if we can enable 2FA authentication only for specific IP ranges based on the configurations of the admins.

  15. There should a 'Buzz' for alert

    There should be a 'Buzz' to alert the other user. Like, Spark, Yahoo.

    Sometimes we have messaged to another user. But user is busy on another task. He/She missed the messages which is very important.

    In this case, the user should have a 'Buzz' button or shortcut for alert to someone. I hope everyone knows about the importance of 'Buzz'. :)

  16. Better Upgrade Notification for Old Desktop App

    As of now, we do not have a clear warning message to indicate that a desktop client has compatibility issue (old version) with the latest Mattermost Server version.

    it will be a good idea to have a message (pop up) that detects the desktop client version and remind them to upgrade it to the latest version if it is at least 1.x version behind the current one.

  17. Plugin hook for channel header, title and purpose change.

    I would like to add a string to the header and purpose every time it is changed via a plugin, but this is currently not possible as there is no hook for channel metadata in the plugin API.

  18. Emoji from Unicode 10, 11 and 12 missing from picker

    The emoji picker seems to be missing all emoji added since Unicode 9. For example Unicode 10 added 🤩 Star-Struck and 🤯 Exploding Head. Unicode 11 added 🥶 Cold Face and 🦘 Kangaroo, Unicode 12 added 🥱 Yawning Face and 🦦 Otter. None of these show up in the emoji picker.

  19. Show the connection status instead of just providing an error message

    When the client goes offline, which is common when laptops suspend or for corporate implementations where a VPN is required to access the server, the only feedback provided is that the server can't be reached and to get help. This is not only not an appropriate message in this case but the message stays on the screen even after the connection is re-established. Instead of showing a disconnection message I propose replacing it with a connection state indicator. Ideally when the client is offline it will obvious (like changing the color of the window) but I won't be able to…

  20. Keyboard shortcut to change team

    To have a single mattermost client connected to several teams is a great feature.

    What i find missing is a keyboard shortcut to change team. The other shortcuts are very good and I usually can navigate through many channels and conversations with keyboard only, but when I see that have received in other team, I have to use the mouse.

    Perhaps you could add tabs or something similar to the "quick channel switcher" (Ctrl-K) or have a new shortcut to switch teams (e.g. Ctrl-T).
