  1. make an admin be able to differ between inactive and disabled users

    The problem of the current situation is, that an administrator yet is only able to set an user account status to "inactive". This means more a disabling of the user, because the user is in no longer able to log in. In fact, he is locked out.
    It would be more appropriate to rename the status "inactive" to "disabled".

    A new status "inactive" should be introduced where a user is in fact using the featureset of a "team edition". No license is acuired for this user and he doesn't get any push notifications anymore until he logs in again. By…

  2. Adding the posting user to the post markup, to enable filtering

    posted in http://forum.mattermost.org/t/marking-posts-with-the-user-who-posted-it/912, was told to post it here instead:

    I've been playing with mattermost a bit and noticed that posts are not currently marked as having been posted by a specific user - the only element inside a post that identifies the poster is the UserProfile component deep inside the post component tree, so it would be very nice if a component tagged its top with a class like "post__wrapper " for easy chat log filtering: some things that this would unlock:


    • hard/soft ignore lists

    • hard/soft 'never miss...' lists

    • hiding everyone-but-X posts to find information in the backlog

  3. Secure direct messages using TextSecure/Axolotl algorithms

    Secure direct messages (and may be messages in private groups) using TextSecure/Axolotl algorithms. Unlike OTR protocol this will enable sending secure offline messages. I think TextSecure library could be used https://github.com/janimo/textsecure

  4. add support for syslog output

    It's a pain to deal with many scattered logfiles, so syslog support would be a welcome alternative.
    The only extra configuration despite enabling, and the loglevel should be the syslog facility.

  5. System Admin should be able to force displaying of users real name (prename and surname! not nickname or username!)

    In some environments it would be very usefull for the participants to be able to clearly identify a user. This is not necessarily the case, if nicknames (or even usernames) can be choosed by the users themself to be displayed in Mattermost channels.
    Therefore an administrator should be able to force the displayed name to display the prename and surname within the chat history window to minimize an users anonymity. This may be also related to a forced disclosure of prename and surname during the registration process.

  6. way to turn off emoticons?

    from https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/1982, Skype etc. allow you to turn off emoticons, so that you get the raw text input instead of the converted smiley face. Not everyone appreciates chat filled with emoji, so it'd be a nice feature to have emoticon rendering a setting people can turn on or off (note that this is about MM-conversion of one an ASCII sequence into an emoticon. If someone types an actual unicode emoji, then that's what they intended to type. But if someone types a colon, a dash, and a closing parenthesis, they did not type a smiley icon, and not everyone…

  7. allow per-user settings for showing links inline or not, ideally per content type

    from https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/1983, While it can be nice to have links to images, youtube videos, etc. that display inline autoexpand to the media that they link to, it would be extremely useful to have a way to turn that off, so that you just get a link instead of losing a massive amount of chat because of the inline media block.

  8. improve profile images by offering arbitrary size with cropping/centering

    from https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/1981, Currently you have to click a button in order to select and image, and it has to be a rectangular image already. Instead, it makes sense to do things more like twitter or flickr, where you can either click-to-browse or just drag-and-drop an image onto the UI, and then the UI gives you the option to crop and scale, so you can pick any image and then just select the rectangular subsection you want to have act as your profile picture.

  9. Administrator should be able to change the profile settings of an user

    An Administrator should be able to change the profile settings of an user (i.e. changing the user picture,user Name or first/last name)
    Also, an administrator should be able to prevent users from being able to changing these options. (policies)

  10. FreeBSD support

    It would be great it mattermost is supported in FreeBSD.
    I think in order to support more OS, specially BSD unixes, mattermost should not depend from Docker.
    For instance Docker doesn't well supported on FreeBSD.

  11. Add a super-feed of all my joined channels

    Add a feed that shows all new messages across all channels I have joined.

    This could either be a special channel, or something akin to an RSS feed.

    I wouldn't expect the ability to post a new message to that channel, but commenting on a message should be possible. And it should be easy to move to and from a message's original channel.

  12. Sync between redundant servers

    In 2015, GitHub user titanous proposed adding support for more than one instance of the API server. (https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/402) It was suggested that it would be added before the 1.0 release, but the issue has since been closed without any changes. Since I didn't see this feature requested in this forum, I thought I would post it so that the community can vote on it.
    I work with a team of five, all of whom have personal servers, one of which hosts our Mattermost instance. It would be useful for us if we could host as many as five…

  14. Create an ARM build pathway

    Right now there's no approved way to do mattermost on ARM. I think ti'd be a great idea to fix that, and I'm working on fixing it myself. If I get a definitive result, I will post it in the regular forums and/or submit a pull request.

  17. Polls (like doodle or for decision making)

    Creating and participating in Polls would be great,
    to be embedded within a message.
    Like in Doodle, Facebook or Threema:

    Option | User1 | User2 | ...

    Coke | x | |
    Sprite | x | x |
    ...

    OR

    Option | Votes

    Coke | 3/15 Users
    Sprite | 2/15 Users
    ...

  18. Multi-tag channels / tag creation on the fly

    I am not sure if this has been implemented or not:

    What I am looking for is the possibility of participants to subscribe to certain tags and create meta-channels that participants can generate by selecting multiple tags.

    (I would like to use Mattermost to allow for informal discussions at my research institutes - across different research groups. The idea is to find common interests, needs, etc.)

  19. Create a Sandstorm app

    Mattermost seems to be a good candidate for making a Sandstorm app. Sandstorm https://sandstorm.io/ allows for secure bottling of web-apps. Many of the apps currently in the ecosystem are complementary to Mattermost - in function and ideology.

  20. Don't show 'More' channels if none are available

    Currently, the channel list will show 'More...' as the last item in the list.

    If there are no further channels created in the team, then this item performs no function other than to confuse users. New channels are obviously created by using the '+' icon at the top of the channel list.
