  1. Private metadata on mobile notifications

    My organization is using Mattermost heavily, and we'd like to receive mobile notifications to make it more useful. However, currently Mattermost shares a lot of metadata with Apple's and Google's servers:

    https://docs.mattermost.com/mobile/mobile-faq.html#what-post-metadata-is-sent-in-mobile-push-notifications

    This is preventing us from enabling notifications.

    I'd like to suggest that you treat the Apple and Google push notification services just as a "wake up" signal, without including user ID, team ID, etc. The mobile app would then connect (via TLS) to its server, download any new messages, and generate local notifications based on those.

    I recently spoke with someone on the Mattermost team who suggested that…

    • Linux desktop app: start hidden in tray without creating window itself

      Instead of creating the application and minimizing it application start must be done without creating window itself.

      Lack of this option I have discussed here https://forum.mattermost.org/t/solved-linux-mattermost-desktop-start-minimized-from-command-line/6321/18

      • 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.

        • Enable pasting images into text bar for the iOS app.

          Right now you cannot paste images into the text bar with the iOS app. This makes it difficult to share images by copying and pasting rather than saving and inserting. If I have an image in my clipboard, I would like to be able to long press in the text entry bar to trigger the paste button. This would then add the image to the text where I could review and either send or remove it.

          • Add context menu for messages on desktop client

            The same menu that shows when clicking the "..." icon to the right, including reactions and reply, should appear when right-clicking on any given message.

            It is a major usability inconvenient when using a large screen, to have to move the mouse all the way to the right edge of the screen in order to click that.

            • Show nicknames on each line while in compact mode

              There should be an option to show the nickname on each line, when using compact mode. As a long-time IRC user, I expect to have the name repeated on each line.
              This is specially annoying when the "New Messages" marker shows, where it should ALWAYS show the name in the line following the marker.

              • Make emoji replacement a separate option from the rest of post formatting

                I consider it unacceptable that I can't choose to disable having my words replaced with emoji, without also having to give up on EVERY SINGLE post formatting feature. I want to be able to use post formatting, just NOT have any emoji appear without me explicitly choosing to insert them.

                  • Add an API for getting private channels

                    As a system admin using the API, it would be useful to get a list of private channels for a team.

                    Currently, one can get posts for private channels through the `channels/{channel_id}/posts` API, but that assumes that the admin knows the channel_id. Finding that ID cannot be done through the API.

                    Use case: for reporting purposes, we want to get the count of messages per private channel each month.

                    • Set user position when user create, in Command Line Tools

                      The option 'user create' in the Command Line Tools is email, firstname, lastname, locale, nickname, password, username, system_admin. There is no "position".
                      I would like an option to set "position".

                        • Allow resizing and hiding of sidebar

                          It would be nice to be able to click/drag the sidebar (where channels are) and resize it/ hide it if desired.

                          Resizing it and having a channel name abbreviated with ... could make sense;

                          ex: Town Square once it starts getting cut off would become Tow... (depending on how small you make the sidebar). Then if you go over far enough it snaps into a hidden position

                          • rename flag post to bookmarked post

                            Users seem to expect that "Flag post" means "Report post" and do not think of it as a way to bookmark posts.

                            Especially as in the web-app "flag post" is not displayed along the other post-actions, but instead by the side of the posting username.

                            I already filed that as a github issue: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/9990

                            • Dismiss a direct group messaging

                              We created a group chat of up to 7 people, but when we finished the group chat, we can't dismiss the group. Group members can only remove the group from the private channel, and can not dismiss the group. Other members can still see the group and send messages. The removed group will appear in the private channel again when other member send a message.
                              I hope that the creator of the group chat can dismiss the group, and all members of the group will leave the group after the dissolution.

                              • Auto converted date time

                                In cases of a international team managing time zone is often difficult. It would be great if Mattermost supported some kind of timezone conversion. A user can choose his timezone in settings and when posting dates or times in a chat, a special syntax, probably something along the lines of (12:00 PM) would be required. The clients will auto convert the time to local users timezone while displaying. This could be an opt-in feature.

                                  • Notify Modified Messages And Added Reactions

                                    There should be an option to allow MM to send notifications wheneven user modifies a message or maybe even when a message is deleted.
                                    Also you be great to have anotification wheneven someone adds a reaction to your message.

                                    • Include private channels to search based on current user membership

                                      Make Mattermost API channels search method
                                      ( /teams/{team_id}/channels/search )
                                      to include private channels where the current user is a member.

                                      E.g. if the user A is a member of channel B and user A performs channel search, it will get channel B in a response from server if B matches the term.

                                      In Mattermost 5.5.0 search returns only public channels in results. The only way to find channel by display name is to get all channels current user is a member of and iterate over them on client side.

                                      • Change users presence monitoring for desktop app and mobile

                                        It appears that mattermost will mark a user as Away while they're still actively working on their computers. I suggest an option to allow a users status to be shown as "Online" while they're logged into their computer. Just because a user doesn't have the app in focus doesn't mean they're not available.

                                        Also, is it possible to show users who are logged in from a mobile device as active on mobile? Hipchat had this feature. Currently Mattermost marks users as offline even if a user is available on their mobile device.

                                        • Video File Thumbnails

                                          Just like we have tumbnails on pictures. helping us identify what we are looking for without having to open the preview tool.
                                          It would be great if we could have thumbnails on videos too.
