  1. Different user roles to configure

    As of now there are only two: 1. Admin 2. Member

    Admin, would like to make someone "Manager" who can create private groups but can't delete one. Regular "Member" will not be able to create private groups or channels.

  2. Provide an alternative to websockets for updates

    Websockets don't work properly behind a squid proxy. It would be great to have a swap-in replacement for them that doesn't require patching Mattermost! Currently we cannot use Mattermost because of this issue, even though the installation itself is fine, because we're keeping it internal to the VPN that squid is running on.

  3. enable other databases, e.g. Oracle.

    Having support for other databases, e.g. Oracle, is crucial as this is common infrastructure in enterprise IT landscapes.

  4. Out-of-office responder

    Add ability to set an "Out of Office" message so when users mention someone who is away, they'll be notified that they're unavailable.

    Note: This ticket does not include changing to status message, which will be included in a separate design.


    1. Add an option to Account Settings > Notifications called "Away Message"

    Title: Out-of-office Message
    Help Text: Set an automated out-of-office message to notify people mentioning you that you area not immediately available. Sent at most once every 4 days to same person who mentioned you.

    UI:
    Send the following "Out-of-office Message":
    [ E.g. "I'm traveling until March 2, 2016.…

  6. Comment on the posted IMG on specific elements.

    My Feature Idea:
    Open a Preview of the posted IMG or PDF and comment on specific elements. (For Design Teams like the feature in InVision)
    Example: Comment on the button on the left side because it looks too small.
    I love Mattermost and plan to integrate it in our workflow :)

  7. Channel modes

    We tend to use the channels in two different ways. Some channels are for chat; a stream of short messages. Other channels have more in-depth messages (like explanations, articles, meeting notes, etc.). In those latter channels, to communication focuses less on a single stream, and more on the replies.

    Currently Mattermost solely focuses on chat streams (chat mode), having replies as an option (literally on the side).

    I want to suggest an extra mode: topic mode. It differs from the chat mode in the sense that:
    - The main might only show the topics (first level messages), not the replies. …

  8. Move a message to another channel

    Sometimes a user posts his message in the wrong channel. Deleting the message and repost is a simple solution. However, sometimes the message already contains replies. Is it possible (to make) to move a message including its replies to another channel?

  9. Advanced search; perhaps using google type shortcodes

    There is currently no way to exclude results, or to get results where multiple conditions exist;eg
    Returns only where both terms are found : termA AND termB
    returns only termA but not if termB exists : termA -termB
    etc...

  10. Filter Search/channel by tag.

    It would be nice to have a bar along the top or side of the ui that could be populated with tag so that the user could filter their search results, or channel contents by filters.
    Currently search is inclusive, which makes it hard to reduce the number of search results. Tag filtering would be one method to improve this.

  11. Support connecting with IRC clients

    Mattermost should support regular IRC clients. A bridge require you to host an entire separate IRC server just for a couple of IRC clients, unless you want to give control to an IRC network. In addition, a bridge per definition is hackish. People speaking are not in the userlist, private messages are impossible etc.

  12. iOS and Android apps should allow multiple server connections

    right now in the iOS app if you setup an instance I do not see a way to setup another one and seeing as how the current architecture of the product is, I would need multiple servers for my org's needs. the app should be able to handle it as well.

    36 comments  ·  Mattermost App - iPhone, iPad, iOS  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

    Thanks everyone for all the upvotes, the feature is now planned. We’re exploring design options for supporting multiple servers on the mobile apps here: https://mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/MM-11067

    We have also opened a channel to discuss supporting multiple servers in the mobile app, as we understand this is a highly requested feature. Everyone is welcome to join the channel and participate in the discussion: https://community.mattermost.com/core/channels/rn-multi-server-suppot

  13. iOS keyboard improvements

    Currently both the iOS app and the Mobile view of mattermost (my local install is the last travis-ci build from a week or so ago) when you bring up the input box you are presented with a Send icon, on top of a Done button along with a Return on the actual keyboard. This from a user perspective is super confusing and unintuitive. I would suggest either completely removing the Send icon, or removing the Done text and that whole extra bar that ends up being drawn just to have it there. Also if at all possible changing return to…

  14. Channel archiving

  15. Expand syntax highlighting in code blocks to more languages

    Mattermost uses highlight.js (I think) - but bundles support for just a subset of languages. This reduces client side load times by limiting the amount of Javascript loaded.

    This could be made configurable at run-time, so for those using for example scala or Powershell can get highlighting for their languages without impacting performance.

  16. Add per-channel email notification controls

    Similar to per-channel desktop notification controls, I'd like the option to disable email notifications on a per channel basis. A good use case for this is our Git repo web hook: I don't need an email telling me I pushed commits to the repository (currently the author name generates a mention notification).

    My [original forum post](http://forum.mattermost.org/t/per-channel-email-notification-settings/497) might provide additional context.

  17. Display option to add a click count next to embedded links

    Similar to how discourse (https://forum.mattermost.org/) tracks the number of clicks on a link.

    Proposed spec:

    1) Add Team Setting > Display > Advanced Message Display Options

    Title: Advanced Message Display Options

    Help text: "Advanced options for message display."

    [ ] Show count of clicks next to hyperlinks in messages.

    2) If zero clicks have been made on a link, show no indicator.

  18. Add line numbers to code blocks

    We would like code posted in messages to have a syntax highlighter for different programming languages (we would be interested in bash, php, css, html etc. Having line numbers would also be nice so when discussing code you can easily know what line you are talking about.

  19. Advanced message/rich text editor

    Currently, it's not easy to write long and complex messages (source code for example). It would be nice to have the option to open a rich editing window.

    For example, another icon could be added at the left of the input box that opens a rich editing window with something like tinymce features. Slack has something like that . A plus icon is at the left and you can choose various ways to enter text according your needs. Even code snippets.
