  1. image

    While Mattermost's image expansion works as expected when the URL ends in .gif, .jpg, etc, image-based links that Slack would expand automatically are not expanded by Mattermost.

    For example, post links like the following to a Mattermost channel or DM:
    http://media.riffsy.com/images/41a79faf658c913d77bfe36b8a231244/raw
    http://gph.is/2lQfDuj
    http://imgur.com/gallery/83mmP

    etc, and note that they do not expand, requiring a user to click on them to view in a new browser tab. It would be nice to have the images auto-expand in-line.

    • load to my last message

      The idea is to have a link, "load to my last message", right beside "Load more messages", the goal of it is to "load all chat messages up to the last time I talked in that channel", this way rather than seeing messages backwards, I can just click it and read the channel in order from the time I left it. Seems like a rather simple addition.

      • Display larger emoji

        I'd love if the (built in) emoji would be displayed a bit larger. 22px instead of 20px would look great.

        And if the message consist only of emoji (one or multiple), the emoji could be rendered considerably larger.

        • Protocol handler for deep linking to channel in desktop or mobile app

          Use a protocol handler to get to channels within the desktop app with a format like:
          "mattermost://channel?id=#{mattermost_channel_id}&team=#{course.mattermost_team_id}"

          Something similar could be implemented in the mobile apps too.

          Some open questions:
          - what happens if someone clicks the deep link but doesn't have the app open or installed?
          - should the deep link work for public channels only?

                • Add support for SQL Server

                  Most enterprises medium or larger have SQL Server licenses and supporting infrastructure (DBA team, servers, backup/recovery scripts, etc.) already established.

                  Support for SQL Server would be very helpful so we can leverage what we have in-house already.

                  • Team initials

                    Ability to change team initials / short name.

                    For example if your teams start with the same prefix, the initials are going to be the same for all of them.

                    Furthermore you may want to set it manually, or if the name is made of multiple words, use the first letter of each word as initials.

                    This is also related to https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/15465123-team-icon

                    Idea is to be able to differentiate teams easier :)

                    I also don't know about mobile apps, but in the web version on desktop the initials could potentially include up to 4 characters.

                    • Confirm with ping warning before sending @all @everyone @here @channel mentions

                      Notifications are challenging, and a common source of friction seems to be "hey, you triggered a notification I didn't want by saying @all".

                      Slack handles this nicely: they intercept the message before send, and advise the user of the outcome.

                      > By using @all, you are about to notify 123 people in 12 timezones. Are you sure? [edit message] [send now]

                      • Team specific position

                        Sometimes we don't have the same position in different team. Maybe it would be interesting to be able to have different position depending on the team, and not one position per account.

                        • EE: Legal notice presentation for system, team and channels

                          Similar to Custom intro text for systems, teams and channels (https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/18595492-custom-intro-text-for-system-team-and-channels) this EE feature would be to enable the presentation of legal notices, formatted in markdown, by clicking an "I agree" button, instead of a "I do not agree" button (which would deny access to the system, team or channel on which the legal agreement is attached.

                          There needs to be a PRINT button to print the agreement, and a DOWNLOAD button to download a copy as a text file (in markdown, which is readable).

                          A full text record of the agreement at the time of acceptance should…

                          • Custom intro text for system, team and channels

                            Custom intro text for a system, team or channel, similar in set up to [Custom Tutorial Text](https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/16951750-custom-tutorial-text) with markdown support and preview, that is displayed to a user when joining a specific system, team or channel, and the user needs to hit "Okay" to dismiss. The user should be able to find the message in the system, team or channel settings to review the info.

                            Requesting this because often organizations want to share more about the purpose of their Mattermost deployment, and include different links, e.g. link to naming conventions to use for channels, an internal user's guide…

                            • search by date

                              Some Mattermost instances have many channels and a crazy number of posts, leading to searches on terms returning too many results. It would be good to be able to search by date range. For example, gmail uses after:yyyy-mm-dd before:yyyy-mm-dd and probably other date formats to enable searching by date.

                              • allow users to 'follow' others to create a filtered feed view.

                                Currently we have an in-built equality of posts which can become inefficient with high volume.

                                Recognizing the importance of hubs in scale-free network growth, we could allow for a filtered view of the main town-hall feed, where you just saw the posts (and related threads) of those you choose to follow.

                                One could also toggle back to the unfiltered view, but allowing people to cluster could make high volume teams more manageable.

                                Unlike Facebook, the user would remain in control - with no algorithm and the ability to toggle back to the unfiltered view.

                                  • Add Phabricator OAuth2 support

                                    Allow for Phabricator's OAuth2 provider as an auth source.

                                    Currently, the Team Edition only supports GitLab as an auth source, and this is a bit limiting, as some organisations such as mine need a bit more than what GitLab offers and have based their development processes on Phabricator.

                                    We have an internal project ongoing to migrate from our private IRC server for communication to Mattermost or similar. Currently, MM is by far the most interesting solution out there, but the lack of more extensible/less tied to GitLab OAuth2 support is probably becoming a blocker.

                                    We could probably feed the necessary…

                                    • Teammate name display selections

                                      Would it be possible to add custom selection of username, nickname and full name to teammate name display? This would make it possible to use combinations like John Doe (Johnny-boy) or John Doe (johnd).

                                      • Add option to set Avatar size

                                        Currently the avatar size is around 32px.

                                        My test users are hoping it could be bigger so as to recognize people easily.

                                        I did a local test and increasing the size to 50px+ would not affect the layout and is indeed easier to find people.
