  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Make the hosting application detect the white-window crash state, and automatically reload.

    Summary

    We apparenlty have a server issue causing the Mattermost window to go white with no activity on my behalf. View->Refresh recovers it, but how come I have to do that manually?

    Steps to reproduce

    version 4.2.0 on Linux.


    1. Log in and leave it until it goes white - roughly once or twice most days, some days not at all.

    Expected behavior

    It should detect that it's gone white, create some log bundle for creating issues here, and then refresh itself (with perhaps exponential throttling so it doesn't end up in a wild refresh loop if things are really wrong…

  6. Is there any plan to integrate Mattermost with CiviCRM?

    We use CiviCRM for our basic admin as a not for profit. The email system in CiviCRM is clunky. Would be great to link Mattermost in some way so we could bypass the CiviCRM email system and just use Mattermost for most of our team communications.

  7. Generate different public URL domain for sharing the static files with externals

    Hello,

    I have installed the mattermost in subdomain eg. chat.example.com. And when I generate the public URL it provides the URL from this domain.

    But I don’t want to share the URL of my mattermost application with external users so how can I generate the URL from a different domain. I can set the alias of the mattermost installed domain to files.example.com but this URL should generate for all users accounts who are the members of my mattermost application.

    Means on generating the public URL of files it should show the different domain instead of mattermost most installed application domain.

  8. Forbid to change username

    Add an server wide option to forbid renaming user names. It might be a security problem, if someone claims abandoned user name (/account name).

  10. Add ability to convert DMs into private channels

    This is a really useful feature in Slack when you realize a topic deserves a dedicated channel, but want the DM history to become a part of it:

  11. Disable the "More Actions" tooltip when the menu is already open

    On the [...] button on the right side of a message, there's a tooltip displaying the text "More Actions". When I click on this button, the menu pops up and then the tooltip appears, blocking the "Edit" menu item. The tooltip should never be allowed to pop up if the menu is already open.

    Firefox, Mattermost Version: 5.6.2

  12. Allow admin to invite users without allowing others to do so

    Currently there seems to be only a global configuration option whether to allow email invites to be sent to users. When this is turned on, everyone can send email invites. I'd like to be able to send email invites as admin without allowing all members to send email invites. Currently I have to turn the feature on, invite someone, then turn it off again.

  15. have a channel preference to have a badge for new messages in a channel like direct messages

    Something like "subscribing" to a channel, where when anyone posts in the channel, you get a direct message badge that behaves like they @'ed you for every message.

    Example:
    UserA: hi
    UserB: sup

    Windows icon on taskbar: red (2)

  16. Automatically join consecutive messages from the same person

    For threading purposes it'd be great if consecutive messages from the same person (maybe within some time window like 10 minutes) would be counted as a single message.

    We use mattermost for an internal support chat and very often we get stuff like

    "Hi!"
    "I have this issue with the fronk, for customer Acme"
    <screenshot>
    "Could someone take a look?"

    You can't reply to any of those messages without losing crucial information in the thread.

  20. Bring profile photos from AD when AD/LDAP synchronization configured

    A lot of AD forests have Profile Photos in them. Mattermost provides no administrative capability to set profile photos. Therefore, just yank them out of AD? Would prevent complex UI from being necessary and give us AD admins a more fancy way :)
