  1. Make text selectable in images

    In macOS Monterey and later, you can select text in screenshots and other images in e.g. Preview.app. When people paste screenshots of user interfaces etc. on Mattermost, and I want to copy & paste some text from it, then I have to first right-click the image and select "Copy Image", then switch to Preview.app, paste the image there, and then select and copy, and switch back to Mattermost to paste the text. This requires more steps then necessary, and is not very discoverable, leading many to simply not know they can copy text from screenshots.

    If one limits the feature…

  2. Discard "New Messages" annotation by pressing Esc

    The "New Messages" annotation stays on even when the chat continues/the message is answered. I would prefer if it disappears when I answer, or if that is on purpose to at least have the possibility to discard the annotation by pressing the Esc button.

  3. Please, add custom notification sounds.

    Now we have 6 built-in notification sounds, I and my team like none of them.

    One has to disable notifications sounds instantly, because of the annoying bing and there is no option to change it to something more unobtrusive.

  6. Allow screen-sharing without starting a call

    Enable a user to begin sharing their screen without needing to create a call. Useful in environments where calls must be disabled but screen-sharing is critical.

  7. Too many "image.png" files. Please make them identifiable.

    Mattermost automatically stores all captured images as "image.png."
    So, there are too many "image.png" files on all channels.

    If filename contains its datetime and the publisher's shortened ID like [Pete_230814-0848.png],
    the user will be able to search the image file more easily.

    To be specific, it's a bit cumbersome to find a specific image file now.

    Most people are seeking an image file directly from the recent file list through the view info icon(ⓘ) and voila, there're dozens of image.png files.

    Although I've learned using following command works for that,
    [:from:Somebody in:Somewhere image.png]
    there's no guarantee of knowing the uploader's…

  8. Aways/DnD/Online System Tray Status

    In Windows, it would be nice if the MatterMost icon was colored to indicate status - currently, it is only ever white.

    White - Onlne
    Charcoal - Offline
    Light Orange - DND
    Light Yellow - Away

  9. Control who's able to DM other members and who's not

    Control the group members DM option with other members, maybe a new role that can only send messages in channels ?
    This would be a great feature to increase security given some companies sensitive infos that shouldn't circulate around or just to stop any and all unneeded and unverified rumors from spreading privately

  11. Allow users to define their preferred language, and display it on their profile resume

    When opening a conversation with a colleague you dont know in a worldwide company, it isnt possible to know what is their prefered language. As a result, all conversations start with so you prefer that language or that language ?

    If preferred language gets added in users' profiles, and gets displayed when openint an empty private conversation, talking to colleagues you dont know will become less awkward

  13. Add a popup notification when someone calls you (using the new calls beta)

    Currently, in the new calls (beta) in v7.0, when someone calls you, you get the same notification as you would get with a normal chat message. This does not really grab the attention of the receiver, who might think it's just a chat message notification or just miss it entirely due to the brevity of the notification, leaving the caller waiting indefinitely in an empty call.

    Could the mattermost devs add an option to enable e.g. a popup window or a continuously ringing sound when someone calls you? This would greatly improve the usability of the call functionality. Currently, I…

  14. Add shortcut to change server

    It is really great to be able to use the same client for multiple servers (which is not possible on the mobile app)

    It would be really awesome to be able to switch servers with a keyboard shortcut ! It is the last use of the mouse I still have in mattermost.

  17. mention a channel with #

    On different chat software you can mention a channel. For example: #test. If you click on the #test, you will go to that channel. I miss this feature in the app right now so I think this will be very useful.

  18. Allow users to set different sounds per channel

    We have a few bots set up on their own channels and they're constantly alerting. I'd like to be able to set them up with a different sound. Currently my only choice is muting. This way, when I'm working, I can tell if it's a coworker, where I need to immediately look and reply, a bot that is letting me know a new ticket was started, and I can look in a few minutes, or a bot letting me know the server is down, in which case I can quit.

  19. "Retry" button to resend the message with its original timestamp.

    Right now the behaviour is the following:
    In case of network failure, the message is held in "draft" mode and with a "retry" button it can be resent.

    The resent happens however with a current timestamp overwriting the original one and placing the message as a new message in the chat effectively putting it out of it's original context.

    Idea to implement:
    While clicking "retry" button, the message will preserve its original timestamp and therefore be placed in the right context. Channel users should be notified about it the same way like it's a new message and have ability to…
