  2. accept symbolic links in the plugins directory

    I administrate a Mattermost Team Edition instance and have separated data that should persist between server upgrades to a directory structure outside the Mattermost installation directory. Paths that I can not reconfigure to their external location are created as symbolic links. Currently this applies to ./config/config.json and ./logs (I could have done the same with ./data I believe, but since this path is configurable I decided to tell Mattermost explicitly about the external location.)

    With this I am protected from accidentally deleting data I want to keep during upgrades. Also this makes upgrading somewhat easier than the documented procedure. This…

  4. have system tray icon indicate when not logged in

    The system tray icon is white when I am caught up on reading. It turns amber or red when I have messages to read or direct messages. But it was white all morning. I was curious why everyone was so quiet, but didn't look. Then I went to direct message someone and saw I wasn't even logged in.

    Feature suggestion: system tray icon indicate when not logged in.

  6. API: Add new_msg_count to /users/me/teams/{{team_id}}/channels/members

    Currently you need to make two calls to get the total count of unread messages or to get the count of unread messages from a single channel (/users/me/teams/{{team_id}}/channels and /users/me/teams/{{team_id}}/channels/members).

    To avoid the first request, it would be nice to have a new property e.g. new_msg_count that returns the current new message count for a channel. This is currently only possible by substracting the msg_count (second request) from the total_msg_count (first request).

    This topic has already been discussed on github: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/8591#issuecomment-383909505

  7. Add turnkey support for Auth0 as an identity provider

    As described at https://forum.mattermost.org/t/auth0-single-sign-on/6728

    As a mattermost administrator, I want to be able to configure authentication with Auth0 as an identity provider. Auth0 supports a variety of standards, so it might be best to implement it as OpenID Connect.

  8. PDF Preview Issue

    When you select a PDF that has been posted to Mattermost, the preview is not at a readable size and it only shows the first 5 pages. As we use Mattermost to circulate confidential documents to our Advising and Dispute Resolution Committee, this isn’t ideal as folks would prefer to preview only and not download to their computers.

  9. Prevent non-admin users from posting and editing to channel

    The use case is to provide information to users, for example, release notes, status updates, etc. In order to keep the channel relevant and to avoid clutter, non-admin users have read-only access.

    This feature allows a team to create "reference" channels.


    1. team admins: create, read, update, delete

    2. non-admin users: read-only

    This idea is similar to, and currently under review for Enterprise Edition:

    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/12874797-add-write-policy-for-channels-and-private-groups#comments

    This idea is related to:

  10. Allow users to signup without invite and also join team without invite

    When open server is enabled, users can signup without invite. However when they signup they are allowed to create team, so I disabled it. Now when they sign up there is nothing. How about let them send request to join teams, and administrators can confirm.

  12. Enable automatic account deprovisioning for SAML

    As per the documentation : https://docs.mattermost.com/deployment/sso-saml.html#saml-single-sign-on-e20 SAML currently does not support automatic deprovisioning, and is only possible if AD/LDAP sync is enabled.

    For environments where AD/LDAP is not possible, it would be great if SAML could also automatically deprovision users from Mattermost as well.

  13. Confirm before sending (at)here like it is already implemented for (at)all and (at)channel

    This has already been requested here:

    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/18607111-confirm-with-ping-warning-before-sending-all-eve

    But for some reason, the confirmation has been implemented only for (at)all and (at)channel, which still allows people to use (at)here mindlessly (without realizing they're about to ping sixty or more people, for example).

    So, I kindly request (at)here to be added to this list.

  14. Remove duplicated parameter in the API

    In link to this [issue](https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/11703), parameters such like the post_id may be required twice in the paramters and in the body of a request. Keeping only one would be preferable

  15. Enable the click on a file link

    Clicking on a file:// link does not work for local folders. On Desktop, it doesn't do anything. On Firefox, it opens a blank page.

    Apparently, this is intentional as explained by @yuya-oc because:
    - Accepting local resources would allow to execute programs via malicious link
    - There is no situation where an user would want to share their local files without attached files.

    In my usecase, we use Nextcloud to sync files within our group. And we have the same letter and path for local files. This is why we often share the file path instead of the file itself,…

  17. display pinned messages on top

    Unless you happen to be Chinese the pinned messages on the right are likely the last thing you will read.

    The effective way to pin messages is to stack pinned messages on top.

    The metaphor is that the message is pinned to the top of viewport and does not scroll away as other messages do.

  18. make pinned messages more visible


    • display pinned messages by default until the user hides them (and remember the hidden state until new message is pinned)

    • display the pin icon in different color/style when pinned messages exist

  19. How to change the Notification Sound in Mobile and Desktop?

    Hello,

    I am using Mattermost Android app to receive notification and messages. But it is very confusing to distinguish between other notification and Mattermost notification.

    It takes the default notification tone of mobile and desktop.

    Please provide the option to change the notification sound or if there is any method to do that then please let me know.

  20. increase the 22 character limit on channel names.

    Slack recently increased their character limitation on channel names. We would like Mattermost to increase the limit as well, as this has been a helpful feature since it was rolled out.
