  1. Provide a way to not display "System" messages

    Where lots of users join, I find it interferes with seeing real content. Any screen is dominated by System join messages.

    • Include channel creation and management restrictions in team edition

      I know these features were left out of Team Edition to keep it simple, but these options are present in the config.json file.

      Enabling this features from just the config.json file would keep the team edition ui simple, but give smaller teams the same ability to control the whims of their users

      • Add support for using channel_id in the URL instead of channel_handle

        Right now you can link to a channel using the following URL

        https://my-mattermost-server.com/teamname/channels/channel_handle

        However, if the channel handle is changed, the link gets broken.

        This feature proposal adds support for using channel_id the URL instead, which doesn't change. Example:

        https://my-mattermost-server.com/channels/channel_id

            • Allow us to make the window smaller on desktop without collapsing the sidebar.

              Sidebar needs to be able to be resizable and we should be able to make the window smaller with the sidebar still showing. There is a lot of empty space.

              • direct message

                Improve search/filter during direct message.
                With more than 100 users, it is really tough to find the user for DM through scrolling. Sometimes the user only know the first name and not last name... or worse, can only guess the spelling

                Would be great if we could use

                "mochi"

                to find

                "masashi-mochizuki"

                • Open attached image in browser

                  When trying to view attached images at their full resolution, having to save the image, find where you saved it, and then open it there is quite clunky.

                  It would be better to open the attached image in a browser, users can right click save it from there, and it can easily be maximized there

                  • RestrictPublicChannelManageMembers

                    It would be cool, if you added a policy for RestrictPublicChannelManageMembers as it already exists for RestrictPrivateChannelManageMembers.

                    The idea is that not everyone should be able to remove other users from public channels.
                    Even if there is no banning, removed users wont get notified of their removal and it results into trolling to join all public channels and remove all members from all public channels.

                    Especially, if there are quite a few public channels, it really hurts to have to rejoin all the channels, just because some troll kicked everyone off.

                    • Make emoji reactions visible in pinned post panel(right-hand side)

                      We'd like to pin a 'poll' post to see the results and make memebers easy to find to post it.

                      However we have no access to the reactions in the 'pinned post' pane in the right-hand side.

                      • Make visual indications of new messages more pronounced

                        The current indication for the Mac client is a hardly distinguishable blue dot for the team and a hardly distinguishable whiter color for the channel. It's nice and muted, but I had to really look hard before I found what to look for for unread messages. I suggest a slightly more pronounced way of indicating unread messages for teams and channels.

                            It was nice in Slack to say for the batch of invitees that have been recently invited that they be thrown into channels x, y, z instead of having to manually Add Member to varying channels or ask them to seek out channels and add themselves.

                            • Unread marker "time machine"

                              It would be nice to be able to "go back in time" when it comes to "unread posts". I have not studied in detail how MM keeps track of this, but I'm guessing a "last seen postId" or a "last seen postDate" or something similar. Anything greater than this is "unread". Anyway, what I would like to see is a way to "undo" or "go back in time" on nn unread states.

                              Say I login today, I have 33 unread/new messages. But I want to go back to the "unread count" I had the last time I logged in before…

                              • Allow users to choose the Teammate Name Display option

                                From version 4.0 the Teammate Name Display option is an administrator only option for the reasons explained at https://forum.mattermost.org/t/switching-teammate-name-display-to-a-system-console-setting/3366

                                Please add another option in the _System Console_ under _Users and Teams_ "Allow users to choose Teammate Name Display" which allows users to choose how to display users' names in posts and the Direct Messages list.

                                We understand that the name in the push notification would not reflect an individual user's preferences; this would be totally fine for us (but it probably should be mentioned in the description text of the new option).

                                The main thing is that our users prefer…

                                • Build a thread system similar to Twist

                                  As plenty of companies around there we find Slack/Mattermost a bit too chatty at times. More importantly, it sometimes makes it really hard to follow discussion around a specific topic. For now we have two choices :

                                  1. Create a specific channel around a topic. But you can start to have a lot of channels really fast
                                  2. Use "threads". But to be frank threads implementation is really lacking and not practical for complex discussions

                                  A new player,https://twistapp.com/, has an interesting take on this problem. Real time channels still exists, but there is another category of channels, entirely…

                                    • Add a Tablet / iPad version of Second Generation Mobile Apps

                                      The second generation mobile apps currently are not designed to support tablets.

                                      (See https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-mobile/issues/670)

                                      If you would like to see tablet / iPad support, please help upvote this feature idea so we can track the demand for it.

                                      • search through all teams

                                        Right now the scope of the search feature is limited to the current team. It would be great to have option allowing to specify the scope: channel, team, global (for example)

                                        • Share extension for the iOS app

                                          It would be cool to have a share extension in iOS so that one can share a link directly to Mattermost like the hipchat app does it.
