  3. Customize the BOT tag

    Especially for incoming webhooks, it would be nice to override the BOT tag text that is shown on every message. This would allow (for instance) integrations to post to a channel as a user in the external system with the name of the system shown instead of BOT, e.g.:

    someguy IRC: hello

    or

    myusername JIRA: issue comment

    There would still be a visual indication that the username is associated with an integration and may not be an actual user, but the word BOT isn't always the best description of what's happening.

  4. Synchronise drafts between (mobile and desktop) clients

    I currently use Mattermost from the web client and an iPhone. It would be great if draft messages were synchronised between the different clients.

    This is not something that sounds particularly useful in the abstract, but it is a feature of Telegram and I found I would often write half a message and then remember that I had a relevant link or similar on a different platform, so want to continue the message where I could copy-paste that link. Now that we have switched to using Mattermost, I am missing it.

  5. Channel Creator Info for Desktop & Web App

    While the Mattermost Mobile app has the feature of tapping on the channel header to see more information that includes who created the channel and the date:

    "Created by XXX on XXX XX, XXXX"

    Users have to scroll all the way to the beginning of the channel for desktop and web app. This will be challenging especially for channels that have a lot of content.

    It will be great if we can have similar feature for desktop and web app as well where users can click on the channel header > view info and show the same information.

  6. Allow users to choose the Audio device for notifications, including 'All Devices'

    In the desktop app, the user is able to select which windows audio device, or All Devices, is used for notification. The option to follow the OS' current selection, or override with your own selection. Sometimes when using the headset as the default OS output device, it would be nice for alerts to be played on the external speakers and/or headset, as chosen by the user

  8. Click the file to open

    1. App sets an automatic download directory, such as $HOME\Documents\Mattermost Files\
    2. Add an "open" button beside the download button on the right side of the file in the chat.
    3. When you click the "Open" button, if the file has not been downloaded, it will be automatically downloaded to the download folder in the first step. At the same time, the download progress bar will be displayed below the file in the chat. After the download is complete, or the file has been downloaded, call the system program to open the file.

  10. Forward messages to other users

    Like
    Email forwarding generically refers to the operation of re-sending an email message delivered to one email address to one or more different email addresses.

    The term forwarding, used for mail since long before electronic communications, has no specific technical meaning,[1] but it implies that the email has been moved "forward" to a new destination.

    Email forwarding can also redirect mail going to a certain address and send it to one or more other addresses. Vice versa, email items going to several different addresses can converge via forwarding to end up in a single address in-box.[clarification needed]

  11. Allow customizing GitLab login button

    Currently, the GitLab login button just says "GitLab". It would be helpful to be able to modify it to refer to an organization-specific gitlab instance.

  12. preserve manually set DND, AWAY and OFFLINE status

    Currently, whenever I refresh the browser tab, the status goes from /any/ to online. Also, If I open a permalink (we use it often to reference discussions over features) the status changes to online.

    It would be nice to leave the status as it was, if it was set manually. Especially the DND status should be preserved.

  13. Implement ~{channel_name} Feature for Private Channels and Direct Messages

    The current ~{channel_name} feature only works for public channels.

    As of now, users are able to obtain the URL of the private through the "View Info" feature.

    Another option is to right click the room name on the channel list and click "Copy Link".

    It will be good to standardize the feature across all types of channels to for a better user experience.

  14. Pause GIFs in background

    It would reduce resource usage and distraction if mattermost (like e.g. telegram) would pause GIF playbacks while the app is in background.

  15. Make CMD+Enter work as a shortcut for saving an edited message.

    Currently, when people have "Send messages with CMD+Enter", this shortcut does not work in the message editing window and people have to save their edited messages with a mouse click.
    I propose the message editing window to behave the same as the message sending box works.

  16. Add the ability to retrieve an archived private channel with admin permissions

    I would like to be able to archive private channels that are no longer in use once a project collaboration is complete but also be able to retrieve that channel if the project reopens or as a means to preserve corporate knowledge and lessons learned for similar projects in the future. Currently, even if you are an admin for a channel, once you archive it, you cannot search for the channel or unarchive it.

  17. Improve iOS share extension

    The current share extension is pretty buggy.
    1) It use a modal instead of a dismissible sheet which has been deprecated in iOS 13
    2) It's too small when you are part of multiple teams, so you always need to scroll
    3) When sharing from Safari, it often say "To share you need at least 1 character in your message" for no reason

  18. Sort joinable public channels by activity

    When there are many public channels to join, many are defunct. New users cannot distinguish these from active channels in the More Channels modal. It would be nice to see the most active channels first, see some measure of how active each is, and perhaps see how many people are in each channel.

  19. Add 'Mark Read' option in right click of Channel(or Group) to clear notification icon

    I suggest to have 'Mark read' option for any Channel in Mattermost.

    There may have few groups which are integrated to get notification of JIRA updates or Jenkins to build status. Loads of messages are received there and one will see notification icon until one open that channel.

    It will be great if Mattermost provides 'Mark Read' kind of function to clear particular channel notifications without opening channel chat.

    I would recommend having this as a right-click option of a channel.

  20. Add option to show nickname or username (never real name)

    There's no way to show the nickname or the username (if no nick is set)

    • In Account Settings -> Display -> Teammate Name Display

    You can choose to see the username, the first and last names or nickname falling-back to First and Last name, but there's no one to give priority to nickname over the username.

    So, add an item such as "Show nickname if one exists, otherwise show username"

    In the way that the first and last names are never shown, unless required.
