  1. Desktop app: Add Change status option to Taskbar tray

    In Windows, when you make a right-click on the notification tray icon, it would be nice to add a "Change status" option to switch easily between online, away, or busy.

  2. Combine messages from same user into one message

    This was completed before:

    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/8684005-unite-messages-of-the-same-user

    But it looks like it only works in the full view when the left blue sidebar with channels is showing, not when the window is smaller and hides the sidebar.

  3. separate latex math mode from syntax highlighting scheme

    Currently, as far as I know, the only possibility to use latex math mode is through "highjacking" the syntax highlighting feature of preformatted text. However, I see two problems with this:
    1. This is counter intuitive as this syntax is normally used for another concept.
    2. At the moment, this solution "blocks" the possibility of sharing syntax highlighted latex code, because it seems to overwrite this default behavior of the used library for syntax highlighting.

    Thus I recommend two changes:
    1. enable sharing of preformatted latex code through the use of backticks and language identifier tex (also, to be compatible…

  4. Dynamic documentation URL

    At the moment all the documentation points to https://mattermost.com which is inaccessible from our environment (no internet access). We have mirrored your documentation to our environment and wish to link to it, instead of https://mattermost.com
    At the moment this seems impossible.

  5. Add support for CSS themes

    I'm not happy with the current theme system. We can change only colors, but I would like to change a bit everything, to get something looking for instance like The Lounge:

    https://thelounge.chat/

    Things I would like to change:
    - typography
    - borders + shadow and radius
    - margins and paddings

    It would be quite easy if we could upload a piece of CSS based on a few class selectors. Like:


    .app__content {
    box-shadow: 0 0 25px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.75);
    z-index: 10;
    border-radius: 5px;
    }

  6. Users should be able to delete their datas without any admin intervention.

    Hello,
    cli tool is not user's compliant :)
    Users should be able to delete (not just deactivate) their datas without any admin intervention.

  7. Better wording for account deactivation

    When a user want to delete his account, he can think "deactivation" is enough but doesn't necessarily know that it just means that he cannot log anymore…

    Maybe (in advanced settings):

    "By deactivating your account you will no longer be able to log in but the messages will be kept. To permanently delete your account and your messages, please contact your administrator."

    And a similar (or the same) message in email notification.

  8. Have a reusable authentication link for guest accounts

    For guest accounts, right now they have to authenticate manually via credentials.

    It would be useful for the guests if there could be a link that they can use to instantly authenticate into the server.

  9. Make guest accounts expire after a set period of time

    Currently guest accounts are permanent until removed by the admins.

    It would be more convenient and secure if guest accounts have an automatic expiry date after a certain period of time.

  10. Have the option to enable 2FA authentication only for certain IP ranges

    Currently when we enable 2FA authentication, it is either enabled for all users or not at all, without any option to have a more granular approach.

    It would be great if we can enable 2FA authentication only for specific IP ranges based on the configurations of the admins.

  11. Add option to wrap text in code-blocks when using syntax highlighting

    Add option to wrap text in code-blocks when using syntax highlighting.

    Currently, if you use code-blocks like so:

    some very long text .....

    It will wrap as expected and no horizontal scrollbar will appear.

    However, if you specify syntax highlighting, like so:
    c++
    Some very long text ....

    It will not wrap and introduce scrollbars. I think it'd be nice to have some option to force wrapping, even when doing syntax highlighting.

    Side note: Is this actually a bug? Or is it expected?

  13. Cannot copy and/or paste text to mattermost

    I am using macOS Mojave and every time I copy some text from a different source (website, text editor) with command C and then try to paste it in a conversation with command V it doesn't work.

    Copy and paste only works if I copy paste with the right click of the mouse, which is slower and more uncomfortable

  14. Send a notification to the mobile app when the sesson is expired

    Currently, there is no way for a user to know that their mobile session expired without opening their app and checking it manually. This causes users to potentially miss out important messages as they may not realize that they are signed out.

    To solve this, it would be best if the Mattermost mobile app sent a notification when the session is expired, so the user is aware of it and can sign back in.

  15. Emoji from Unicode 10, 11 and 12 missing from picker

    The emoji picker seems to be missing all emoji added since Unicode 9. For example Unicode 10 added 🤩 Star-Struck and 🤯 Exploding Head. Unicode 11 added 🥶 Cold Face and 🦘 Kangaroo, Unicode 12 added 🥱 Yawning Face and 🦦 Otter. None of these show up in the emoji picker.

  16. Enable to detect since when a user is offline (manual & disconected)

    Currently, using the UX, we cannot determine the last time a user when offline. this feature is useful and could be compared with flowdock.com, as you can see in the image https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/907914/71488129-12347800-2873-11ea-8b03-867c8fc2b357.png

    Steps to reproduce:
    mattermost Server 5.16+
    Open a conversation 1-1 with any user, and if it is offline, we cannot determine since when that user is offline

    Expected behaviour:

    Open a conversation 1-1 with any user and if is offline. Display as part of user status since when the user is offline.

  20. Mobile app : detect team URLs correctly

    When entering the URL in the mobile app, if you include the team name in the URL, it will return an error.

    For example, http://test.mattermost.com/mytest will return an error, as it only recognizes the server URL and will only accept http://test.mattermost.com.

    The app should either directly redirect the user to the relevant team after logging in, or recognize the server URL regardless of the team URL and log the user into the default team.
