  1. Show Emoji picker for current message when hovering on message and typing space

    It is a bit cumbersome to select an emoji reaction since the button is fairly small and all the way to the right. I suggest to open the emoji reaction picker when hovering on a message and typing space.

    Preview of the idea : http://output.jsbin.com/zabupucuso

  2. Update Pinned Posts Panel switching between channels

    Want to have pinned posts panel to dynamically change when switching between channels to show the pinned posts in that specific channel. Currently you'd have to unselect and then reselect pinned posts to update it everytime you change channel

  4. "Mark channel unread" option to support account notification settings "words that trigger mentions" feature

    At the moment its possible to mark channels unread if you are mentioned (The channel name is bolded in the sidebar when there are unread messages. Selecting "Only for mentions" will bold the channel only when you are mentioned), but it would be awesome if we could have the function to choose the settings that are already adjusted in "Account settings" --> Notifications --> Words that triggers mentions

    Would save lot of time to read only channels that has something related to your keywords, not only if you are mentioned

    Related issue, but requires more like only "channel wide notifications": …

  5. Handle old browsers more gracefully

    Mattermost does not work on some old browsers (e.g. Android 4.2: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/8825).
    I don't expect the team to support these legacy browsers but currently it only displays a blank page, which can be confusing for users.

    It would be nice if Mattermost could display an user-friendly error message when the browser is not supported.

  7. Login with QR code

    I have a very long password and I would like to keep it. To make it easier to login on the phone it would be great if a QR is code shown on the computer which I can scan. (Where I am already logged into Mattermost.) Similar to Whatsapp where you login like this on the computer.

  9. windows people

    Summary
    Microsoft now supports pinning conversations within applications to the taskbar through what they call the My People API:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/contacts-and-calendar/my-people-support

    It looks like it primarily supports windows store apps/c#, so it might not be possible to do with electron/node. It's also OS-specific, which isn't really beneficial to the app as a whole.

  10. Better AWS S3 Integration

    AWS S3 is a great option and I've gotten it working using an IAM role w policies to access that specific S3 bucket. What I'm suggesting is that instead of S3 being used as just a file "dump", there could be an optional setting for "Serve content directly from S3" (as well as perhaps another option available for "serve directly using cloudfront" - which would have a notice on the extra cost).
    The idea is that instead of serving assets from the Mattermost instance itself, the objects in S3 could have presigned URL's set on them (with another setting for…

  11. add the ability to preview messages, or a larger editor in the RHB

    It would be really great to be able to have a preview of a message before it's sent. Putting a full-size, WYSIWYG-able editor available in the right-hand bar would make it easier to compose longer messages, especially if you need to reference other posts inside of Mattermost.

  12. Chatting to Golang Bot through direct message

    Hello, I have the golang bot implemented into a mattermost channel.
    It would be helpful to have an option for users to ask the bot questions in a Direct message as opposed to just a public channel.
    I feel that this would encourage users to use the bot more and help shy users as well. That way there can be some sort of privacy between users.
    Also, a way to have a log for Admins to keep track of what questions are being asked will be helpful in developing the bot further.

  13. unicode emoji to support chinese character custom emoji names

    Current behavior: User interface won't allow me to give Chinese names to emoji.

    Requested behavior:
    - Allow naming of custom emoji with Chinese characters
    - User be able to type :你好: and have the mapped custom emoji show up in chat

    Notes:
    George Goldberg suggested to enable full unicode support for custom emoji names rather than just ascii. https://pre-release.mattermost.com/core/pl/ce5wkyq1w7drxd55mjy38c1apo

  14. Toggle the visibility of bot/webhook messages

    I'd like a way to quickly hide/show bot and webhook messages in a channel. It would be easier to have conversations when the channel is regularly "spammed" by bot messages. Could be a simple button in the channel header

  15. add support for custom server storage via SSH.

    Currently the pull down menu for "File Storage System:" on /admin_console/files/storage only offers Local Storage and Amazon. I want to use my file server. So SSH access. (I guess WebDav for some people?)

    That means that you would have a third option in the pull-down that says "Custom Server (SSH)" and the fields below it would be:


    1. Username

    2a. Password OR

    2b. Paste your public RSA key here


    1. Server URL (ex - 'myfileserver.mycompany.com')


    2. SSH port (default: 22)


    3. root directory (default: ~)

  16. [PROJECT] - Yubikey Monitor (Standalone)

    Hi all,

    I've been working on setting up 2-factor authentication using my Yubikey. Yesterday I finally got it working, and decided to write the process down. I used the One Time Password Backend app (http://apps.owncloud.com/content/show.p ... ent=159196) with some minor modifications (which will be part of the next release of the app).

    Everything is documented here: http://www.sj-vs.net/two-factor-authent ... m-yubikey/

    Let me know if things are still unclear.

  17. List of Flagged Posts in Mobile Application

    It would be a good idea in mobile application to have a button that list of flagged post in channel details. To see a flagged post, it would be very difficult to seek all posts earlier.
    Thanks in advance.

  18. Add a font which is readable without Anti Aliasing

    With release v4.0 release (July 16, 2017) the ability to choose fonts was removed. The one and only font (Open Sans) is quite unreadable if Anti Aliasing is switched off. Please think about people with handicaps which cannot use Anti Aliasing because of their eyes.

    Please add at least one font (as Arial or Ubuntu from pre 4.0) or provide a simple description of how someone can do this for a local installation.

  19. Allow consecutive emoji's in the Emoji Picker

    When typing a message, sometimes I want to insert consecutive emoji's. Instead of typing them manually, I would rather use the Emoji Picker. However, as soon as I click on an emoji to insert it, the Emoji Picker closes. I think it would be really nice if there was a way, like holding the Shift key, to keep it open so that I can insert other emoji's in a row.

  20. Have favourite channels visible from other teams

    Private messages and their favourites are visible regardless of team. It would be nice if favourite channels are also available from any team, regardless of the team they belong to. This would make communication across teams faster and easier.
