  1. Include user's language in body of outgoing slash command request

    Currently, outgoing Slash commands send in the request body information about the user like userid and username.

    However, to properly internationalize a slash command integration (such as https://github.com/jedfonner/MattermostOnFire/issues/2), the receiving system needs to know the user's specified language (from Account Settings > Display > Language).

    Please add a "user_language" field to the JSON object passed in the body of the message sent by Mattermost outgoing slash commands. This field should be populated by the user's language (e.g., en-US, es-MX, fr-CA, etc).

  2. Allow images uploaded by team members to be delivered over CDN

    For various reasons the server hosting my Mattermost instance is located in the USA however most of its users are located in Australia. Large uploads and image are quite slow to download or view. It would be convenient if an asset host could be configured to allow the uploads to be delivered via a CDN (configured and set up separately).

  3. SIP implementation

    Users should be able to sign in with a SIP account and make and receive voice calls through it and maybe even transfer it internally. It's important for customer services calls.

    Video call is only a nice-to-have feature.

    And admin needs to be able to assign a SIP account to a user.

    It should be rather easy to implement since there a lot of SIP clients out there.

  4. 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

  5. android notification priority

    Android has a notification implementation that supports priority levels. (https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/notifiers/notifications.html). This means that you can define different priorities for the notifcation. lowest means no notification and max is that you get a pop up/in from the top even in full screen apps (like a movie)

    Its very disturbing to have that pop in when you are busy with other stuff. especially in the weekend while you are not working (mattermost is in my case work related). If you look at Telegram, you can choose your priority for the notification, or at least this is possible via the settings…

  6. EE: Provide controls for creation of public and private channels at the team level

    The global channel settings aren't flexible enough create teams with differing levels of channel security. Please consider adding the public & private channel settings at the team level.

    Simplistic example:

     Team A: invite only with the creation of public rooms disabled
    
    Team B: public team, with the creation of public rooms enabled
    Team C: public room with the creation of public rooms disabled

  7. Daily email notification option

    I have the team version of Mattermost for a small project with friends hosted at my house. The best way to notify my group is via email, however, I can only send so many emails a month through my SMTP server. It would be nice if there was an option for sending a once a day notification added in addition to the instant, 15 min, and hourly.

    It would be also really helpful if I could set this as default for all my users and let them change it if they need to.

  8. Use Safari view controller to view links in app

    Tapping a link shared in Mattermost currently throws you out of the app and into Safari. I would be preferable to use Safari View Controller1 to show the link inside the app.

  10. 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…

  11. Implement emoji picker for Android (same as already implemented for reactions)

    A lot of our team members ask for this feature, as using Android's system emoji keyboard leads to ??? on other platforms. Would be really helpful to have an Android 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.

  12. Ability to search all content (FOIA)

    Sorry if this is already a feature (I'm a Mattermost noob) but I haven't found a way of doing this yet...

    If we are going to implement this, we WILL need a way to search all content (Public/Private channels, Direct messages and Archived) for legal queries!

    This is a basic requirement of all software we implement within Government!

    Note: I am currently using the Team edition as a trial, so maybe it is a feature in the Enterprise version??

  13. Make "public channels" heading clickable

    On the desktop web interface, the "public channels", "private channels", and "direct messages" headings are not clickable. If you want to join a channel, you have to look for the less prominent "More..." link at the bottom of the list. Meanwhile, at the top of the list, the "+" icon creates a new channel.

    Given that joining a channel is a much more common operation than creating a new channel, I feel like it should be given higher billing, with a click target at the top of the list instead of at the bottom of the list (or maybe in…

  14. Invite users ignoring white list

    We are using mattermost at our university and have a whitelist set-up so only people from our university can join. However some teams have indicated they want to cooperate with others who are not officially affiliated with our university and thus have no university e-mail address.

    We would like an option for sysadmins to invite these users to the server.

  15. 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.

  16. Improve channel notification warning

    Right now, there's a default ping warning for @channel mentions, which is great (https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/18607111-confirm-with-ping-warning-before-sending-all-eve). However, some channels use @channel a lot and want to disable the warning, but this leads to new users not learning how impactful @channel is.

    I propose to expand the setting (https://docs.mattermost.com/administration/config-settings.html#show-channel-and-all-confirmation-dialog), so it includes options to show the warning "first time each day" and/or "once" per user. This allows a nice middle ground between educating users and getting in the way.

  17. Open/View any type of files within built-in applications

    Also we need an ability to open any type of files within built-in mobile applications without the need of previously downloading file. For example: one chat member sends a “.docx” file to the group chat, other members can open this file directly by tapping the link once and choose an application to open it

  18. 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.

  19. 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!

  20. Remove team name restriction

    Please remove the restriction for team names, because our company name starts with a number and we would like to have our first team to be named like our company name (name and URL).

    This seems to be possible in the "GitLab Mattemost Team Edition" but not in the "Mattermost Enterprise Edition".
