      • Clear cache automatically at set time or do not cache data on Desktop client

        On Windows, conversations are cached locally on the desktop client under the Roaming/Mattermost/Cache folder. These cache files contain sensitive information from conversations in the desktop app. I would like an option in the desktop client to either 1) disable cache completely or 2) clear the full cache on a regularly scheduled timeframe (ex. every 6 hours). Disabling cache is better as it makes sure that the conversation isn't saved to the local file system. This is important for projects that do not want any sensitive conversations available outside of Mattermost.

          • I forgot my password option on Mobile

            There is no option on the mobile apps for a password email to be sent to the user if they have forgotten their password. I have had to instruct them to go on a computer and request a password reset email. I do not know if there is a reason for not having this, but I think it would be a time saver for most users because most users are on mobile only. Thanks!

            • Ability to disable rendering of animated emoji, or to hide posts, to improve performance

              The problem I am having is that in some channels when users are using tons of animated emojis, I am seeing my CPU sit at >=30%. If I then switch to a more static channel, the CPU usage drops off the top of the list.

              The feature I would love is to either:
              * Have the ability to disable the rendering of animated emojis (or gifs?)
              * Or to have the ability to hide posts

              Currently I have to make sure never to leave a heavy animated channel as my active channel.

                • Restore a deleted channel

                  We would like to be able to restore deleted channels. One of which this can be done is to have a trash box of all deleted channels, of which we can restore back to in case we would like to reopen it.

                  • List accepted (and not yet ones) invitations

                    Keep track to whom accepted invitation and those who didn't yet.
                    When you send invitations to many people, you can't know for sure who actually accepted so you may want to resend invitations to your list of contacts (and again… And again…).

                    • 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.

                      • Too many times opening proxy auth dialog

                        In company proxy environment, authentication dialog for proxy open as many as Mattermost server registered in App each time I open Mattermost App.
                        We want to reduce the number of times to open the dialog. (e.g. by setting auth for proxy from environement variables, or by saving auth info to config.json)

                          • 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

                            • Give the option to move Direct Messages to the right of the channels (In between Channels & Chat)

                              It would be nice to be able to move the Teams / Channels / Direct Messages in separate blocks so to be customizable.

                              Right now i have alot of channels and my direct messages are all the way down. If i could move the direct messages to the right of the channels i think it would be neatly organized.

                              Teams > Channels > Direct Messages > Chat window

                              Cheers,

                              • 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.

                                  Please add setting of notifications 'Include of preview of message in each notification'. This option is needed for personal data protection when you screen sharing with any application like skype.

                                  • Uploaded mp4 video files should display with the play controls and preview frame

                                    ummary: Uploaded mp4 video files should display with the play controls and preview frame directly inside the channel for recognizability and immediate playback.

                                    Description: Just as image files received an image preview feature with 4.7 I would like to suggest the same behavior for mp4 video files. Currently there is only an icon and file information in the channel. With a lot of videos uploaded to a channel it becomes hard to distinguish the files.

                                    Also, adding the video play controls below would make it faster to browse through videos.

                                    Could this be implemented using the html5 <video> tag with…

                                    • Status over name (Working locations)

                                      something which i liked about Slack was you could put a 'status' which would appear by hovering over someone's name. I and a lot of others used to put their locations for the week which was quite useful.

                                        • voice channels (like discord or mumble)

                                          Would be fantastic for my team to be able to have a static voice channel to join instead of creating a conference every time.
