  1. Easy to use server side encryption for every server like in Nextcloud

    Having secure "at rest" data on the server is very important for data safety, especially due to the new privacy laws within the European Union. Nextcloud for example offers an easy to use server side encryption for its services within the settings. No special software is neesed.

    Our organisation really wishes an easy to setup server side encryption within the dashboard.

    • Add a system console option to hide the "Leave Team" button

      For instances that only use one team, the option to leave the team is not useful.

      Please add an option to the system console to hide the button or add a user permission for this function.
      The user permission would be the preferred way to handle this to be prepared for growing instances.

      • emoji reaction keyboard shortcut

        This was my most used shortcut in another messaging app that starts with an S and ends with an ack.

        Also to then be able to select emoji with arrow keys and enter is crucial. Would even go a step beyond if shift enter allowed you to pick **more than one emoji reaction!** #Mindblown

        • Ability to Reply to Message with Webhook

          It would be awesome for us, when something like this could be achieved:

          I use a slash command in a thread (right side), the triggered post will include the parent message id.

          Add the parent message id to incoming webhooks. So I can reply to a thread with webhooks.

          • Limit direct messages per User

            We would like the users to focus on channels. Although we do not want to disallow direct messaging at all.

            It would be amazing if we could set a direct message limit per day.

            For example: User X is allowed to send 20 direct messages per day, while User Y can send unlimited direct messages.

            With this feature we don't limit the users too much, but we also make sure that important information is held in the channels.

            • collapse [-] PUBLIC CHANNELS

              We use the favorite channels and direct messages, and therefore would like to collapse the public channels. Then channels with unread messages would only be shown.

              • Client for Ubuntu Touch

                Hello,
                as Ubuntu Touch (UT) is not dead. See https://ubports.com
                They are doing an awesome job getting UT going.

                I wanted to know if there is someone who wants to write a client for this OS :)

                Cheers.

                • Provide for multiple fonts

                  Recently the ability to choose fonts was removed. See https://forum.mattermost.org/t/removing-font-setting/3367. Now there is only one font, and it renders poorly for me (insufficient weight/contrast) on smaller high DPI displays. This makes the GUI very hard to use. Please provide a way to select among a set of fonts, or ideally specify my own.

                  Frankly the justification for removing the feature was weak. Let the user decide if the load time or other trade offs are worth the better rendering.

                  • Disallow account creation using specified email domains

                    "Restrict account creation to specified email domains" requires a list of "good" domains. But i need to disallow some domains. e.g. hotmail.*

                    we don't want users to use some freemail-domains. especially ALL hotmail domains (hotmail.de, hotmail.com, hotmail.fr, ...)

                    • File viewer integration

                      Today we only open image, audio, video and pdf files, but I want to open autocad, ms office and other files.
                      If we've a File viewer integration, where the system admin configures an integration to specified file extension.
                      In this case in my team, we could configure Mattermost to post "*.dwg" file in a webservice when an user want to view this file, this webservice could use autodesk viewer api and returns the page to view this file.
                      I could use other integration to view excel, word using google or office365 api, etc.
                      I don't know if this idea was…

                      • Support for nosql database

                        Considering the benefits of data analytics for such kind of apps, don't you think support for a nosql database would help. Also, if you want to scale it to a million users; will a rdbms solution support that?

                        • calculator

                          In google search, when you prefix a search with "=", it automatically runs the search as a maths calculation. It would be great to have this in mattermost as well.
                          So if a message starts with a "=" and does not contain other text, it should be postfixed with the result of the calculation.

                              • Private message with authorized members only

                                Hi, (I am new to this forum but I have installed Mattermost in my organization)

                                Is it possible to add a new choice in the administrative console in the option “Allow users to open private message channels with” to request permission to create private messages with members who use the platform.

                                Currently, the configuration choices are:

                                All members of the team
                                Any user on the Mattermost server
                                and I would like to add :

                                Only authorized members
                                To prevent all members from communicating privately without prior notice

                                Is it a good idea ?

                                • show user list for emoji reactions by tap on emoji-icon on mobile browsers/mattermost-apps

                                  users of our team (http://geschichtenkapsel.de) absolutely love the option to see user names, when they hover over emoji reactions on their desktop browser/mattermost desktop app. They asked for this option to be implemented on mobile, too, as they were used to it when we had a slack team account.

                                  • allow multiple users to edit a post

                                    We'd like to edit each others posts, e.g., for meeting reports and the like. Before, we used Slack, and found this feature really useful.

                                      I can search easily for a group name on iPhone, but there is not the same convenient matching feature on macOS. Also on iPhone, I see all unread messages at top of list, on macOS I have to scan the whole list to find unread messages. So the macOS client needs to catch up with the iPhone.

                                      • Restrict Direct Messages user list to the members of the currently viewed team

                                        The DM user list can be very crowded. My suggestion is to restrict this user list to the members of the team that is currently selected in the Teams Sidebar, just like the way public channel list is implemented.

                                        So the user list in the "Direct Messages" section will change when the user switches to a different team.

                                        • Have a option to order the channels as last update time

                                          Now I almost have 40 channels(include direct message channel), it's not easy to find 5 channels which talked to me in last 1 minutes in all my channels and to switch comment between these channels.

                                          Hope there is an option with "by alphabet" or "by the last updated" to control the channels list order.
