  4. Pause GIFs in background

    It would reduce resource usage and distraction if mattermost (like e.g. telegram) would pause GIF playbacks while the app is in background.

  5. Integration with Miro collaborative whiteboarding

    Miro (https://miro.com/) is a collaborative whiteboarding system popular with (interaction) designers but also used in research and strategy planning.

    Microsoft Teams allows the following events from Miro to be shown:


    • invitees sign up

    • board is shared with you

    • there's a new comment or a reply to your comment on a board

    • someone @mentions you in a comment or reply.

    Source: https://help.miro.com/hc/en-us/articles/360017572514-Microsoft-Teams

    It would be nice to have a similar integration in Mattermost.

  6. Add the ability to retrieve an archived private channel with admin permissions

    I would like to be able to archive private channels that are no longer in use once a project collaboration is complete but also be able to retrieve that channel if the project reopens or as a means to preserve corporate knowledge and lessons learned for similar projects in the future. Currently, even if you are an admin for a channel, once you archive it, you cannot search for the channel or unarchive it.

  7. Make team tabs optional

    The new wide tab bar steals useful screen real estate, introduces visual redundancy to our single-server setup (team name mentioned twice within a really small area of UI), and makes the app look even less at home on macOS. The old top of the window bar at least looked native. Please consider making the tab bar optional at least in single-server environments.

  8. Sort joinable public channels by activity

    When there are many public channels to join, many are defunct. New users cannot distinguish these from active channels in the More Channels modal. It would be nice to see the most active channels first, see some measure of how active each is, and perhaps see how many people are in each channel.

  9. Add Gitea OAuth2 Support

    Support Gitea's OAuth2 provider as an authentication source.

    Currently, the team edition only supports GitLab as an OAuth2 source. GitLab is pretty heavyweight and many people prefer other software for a variety of reasons.

    Gitea (https://gitea.io/en-us/) is a really nice open source, community supported Git server. They recently added support for acting as an OAuth2 provider (see https://docs.gitea.io/en-us/oauth2-provider/ for documentation). It would be great if Mattermost would support Gitea as an OAuth2 provider.

  10. Integrate GoToMeeting

    As we use GoToMeeting, the Mattermost plugin for Zoom does not help. We would verymuch appreciate a similar possibility to integrate GoToMeeting.

  11. Add option to show nickname or username (never real name)

    There's no way to show the nickname or the username (if no nick is set)


    • In Account Settings -> Display -> Teammate Name Display

    You can choose to see the username, the first and last names or nickname falling-back to First and Last name, but there's no one to give priority to nickname over the username.

    So, add an item such as "Show nickname if one exists, otherwise show username"

    In the way that the first and last names are never shown, unless required.

  12. Phone App - Log in to a specific channel

    Allow users to pick which channel is their default log in. Instead of only choosing the baseline server (example: https://chat.collab.cdl.af.mil/) -- allow them to enter the URL and it open up to that channel every time they log in.

  13. Allow users the choice for 2-factor authentication: Add Biometric Login

    Increase the number of options the end user has to complete authentication. My thought is to use biometrics (face scan or thumb print) similar to that of banking apps then have the user choose 2 of their 3.

    1) Username/Password
    2) Authentication Code (MFA)
    3) Biometric (Thumb Print)

  16. Add the team name to any notification emails

    Please add the team name to any notification emails sent by MM. While we have few teams with common channel names, it is really confusing from email body which team it is.

  18. Add second password box for confirmation when resetting via "Forgot Password"

    After clicking "Forgot my password" and using the email link to reset, there is only a single box to enter a new password. A second confirmation box would be helpful to ensure no typos happen when entering the new password.

  19. Clearer notification for plugin upload failure (size limit)

    I was receiving a generic "Received invalid response from the server" messages when trying to upload the BigBlueButton plugin. I eventually discovered that it was because the Maximum File Size was configured to 5MB.

    A clear message stating either what the "invalid response" was or flagging the issue as "too large of a file" size would be less generic and easier to troubleshoot.
