  1. Add a way to spoiler some messages or part of messages

    I think it would be a great idea to add spoiler tags like message or message but for spoilers (i.e ^This is a spoil^)

    There are several ways to implement this:

    -By having an expand/close button for showing/hiding the message
    -By having to select the text to see it
    -By having to hover on the text with the cursor to see it (might be problematic for touch-based devices)

    I suggest discussing on what is the best for mattermost.

  2. Add auto-link functionality, e.g. to create links to bug tracker

    It would be really useful if when a message contained text such as "blah blah blah bug 23 blah blah" that the text 'bug 23' was changed into a link to bug 23 in our issue tracker.

    This could be handled more generally as a regex replacement that is applied to the message, with the system administrator being able to add multiple such regular expressions. This would allow all kinds of links, e.g. [[wp:Foo]] to link to the Wikipedia article 'Foo'.

    The replacement could be applied at the point of save or the point of rendering, but I would recommend…

  4. Add sub-channels/groups or folders

    With a lot of groups/channels ,the sidebar becomes very cluttered. A collapsable hierachy with sub-channels/groups would be great.

    Or, easier to implement I guess, the ability to group channels/private groups into folders.

  7. Sending emails to Mattermost

    Like this in Slack
    https://get.slack.help/hc/en-us/articles/206819278-Sending-emails-to-Slack

    There is a workaround with Mattermail, but it means for each channel I need to create an email (alias) which is cumbersome.

  8. Implement changing channel ownership

    There is currently no method for changing the owner of a channel.


    • A channel owner should be able to assign ownership of their channel to another user

    • Team admins and System Admins should be able to assign ownership of any channel to another user

  9. Microsoft MS-CAPI / PKCS 11 Support

    For advanced enterprises, MS-CAPI / PKCS 11 support would allow additional enterprise authentication options across all native clients plus the web experience.

  10. Microsoft Active Directory SSO with reverse proxy REMOTE_USER

    For advanced enterprises with sophisticated authentication requirements, this feature would allow authentication through REMOTE_USER information passed in via HTTP headers

    This feature requires a [fundamental change to the Mattermost user model](https://forum.mattermost.org/t/unifying-user-accounts-across-teams-for-mattermost-2-2/1126
    ) so that users can exist outside of teams.

    Several threads have discussed this feature:
    - https://forum.mattermost.org/t/active-directory-sso-through-a-reverse-proxys-remote-user/295
    - https://forum.mattermost.org/t/client-side-certificate-authentication/1174

  11. iOS and Android apps should allow users to bypass certificate warning

    iOS and Android apps should allow users to bypass certificate warning. Some of us don't have proper certs and use the application for small teams, and don't have the resources to get proper web certificates.

  12. Mattermost/doc i18n support with sphinx-intl

    Hi. I am programmer in Japanese.

    I think that I also want to contribute to a great product called Mattermost, I am writing this in poor English. please forgive me.

    My suggestion is "Mattermost/doc i18n support". Mattermost/doc using sphinx, because I thought that can be easily implements with "sphinx-intl".
    ref: http://www.sphinx-doc.org/en/stable/intl.html

    I made PR (protorype), I hope you will discuss it.
    https://github.com/mattermost/docs/pull/80

    sincerely.

    p.s.

    This is my first contribute working, and my English is so poor, please forgive me if I say something rude.

  13. Extend customization options to include message bg for current user

    NOTES:
    - I'm posting this as per the request made here: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/2549
    - I am not capable of implementing this myself

    Mattermost highlights user's own messages with a gray background (color depends on fg text color). It is entirely up to user's personal taste and preference whether these highlights add anything to the experience: I personally find them distracting and feel they disrupt the flow of the conversation. Also, visually, they're unappealing.

    So, however you feel about these highlights personally, you should at least agree that they're a prominent visual feature. As such, users should be able to turn them…

  14. Search on all public channels

    For now it only searches the channels that you have joined.

    Maybe the info you are searching exists outside of the channels you have already joined.

  16. Improve web accessibility

    It would be great if the WCAG 2.0 guidelines could be implemented to help people with disabilities to use Mattermost.

    This is an area that is often overlook, specially by the recent wave of chat platforms, so it's an opportunity for Mattermost to differentiate itself from the crowd.

    This is planned. Would anyone be interested helping with this effort as we create tickets for them?

    It would be great to hear people’s feedback on what are the biggest gaps with accessibility currently.

  17. Disable direct messages

    Our company would find it useful if there was an admin option to disable direct messages all-together.
    We think this may help the work of teams where there is no need to discucc anything outside of team channels.

  18. email notifications for new messages and for channel joins look alike and have a similar email notification subject

    This behaviour leads to that one could not see at first sight which type of message the notification was for, because the email subject is always "New Mention on...".
    It would be more informating and appropriate to choose a email subject that makes clear at first sight which kind of mention the notification is about. (channel join, user disabling, mention, etc)
    In my opinion a channel join is no mention in sense of a new message. There is a difference between a new message and other System activities and this should be clear withing the notification email.
    Maybe ist reasonable…

  19. Enable export and import of Display Settings

    Similar to theme export/import, have UI under display settings that lets you export and import font, language, themes and other options under Account Settings > Display based on a piece of text that can be copied and pasted from an input box

  20. Create a "already used tags" drop down menu when typing # , based on the already used hashtags

    To preserve or moderate a given thread , theme or channel, tagging them makes the search much easier afterwards. But to make sure, that the given hashtags will be the same (tag cloud?), by typing # a dropdown should show up with already used tags. Behavior could be the same lile with @ or :(for smileys!).
