  1. make threads collapsible

    A toggle option so that threads appear as "N comments" and open in the side-panel, so they do not interrupt the main flow of the channel, and you can follow each thread mode easily.

  4. Implement a Site Chat feature

    Site-Chat: Add features that enable mattermost to be used by webmasters/developers to power live chat conversations in floating windows on their web sites.
    This would significantly increase proliferation and adoption of Mattermost.
    Ask any adopters to link back to Mattermost via a small logo/link.
    Features needed would be:
    1) Automate creation of a new user in Mattermost via APIs (or support SSO, as the users would already be authenticated on the 3rd party site)
    2) Create a renderer to bring up the Private Message channel in Mattermost between the 2 or more users that the 3rd party site chooses, probably…

  5. Support different options for sorting the channels in the sidebar

    Now the contacts (Direct messages) are always sorted alphabetically. It would be great to have different options of sorting. What we like the most is sorting by last message recieved/sent, which means on top we always have our most recent conversation (like in Skype)
    Any chance to have it in future?

  6. 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.

    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

  7. EE: Single-Channel Guests for non-team members

    For IT policy compliance, offer the ability to invite non-team members users to Mattermost as "single-channel guests" to have access to read and write to one channel and direct message any other users in that channel.

    Potential scenarios include opening discussions with non-team members, including customers, vendors, partners and interview candidates.

  8. 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
    ...

  9. 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?

  10. 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.

  11. Remind me Later

    Slack offers a very cool possibility: you can ask the bot to remind you of a message after some time.

    This is *extremely useful* when you post a message which requires some reaction by some other users - if (unfortunately) no reaction comes, it is very easy to forget about the question, which will not happen if you set a reminder!

    That would be a very nice feature to add to mattermost

  13. Read Receipts: Implement a visual indication for messages if and when they have been read by other users of the channel

    Sometimes one's wondering if a post has already been read by other users. I could image that a member list of the channel pops up when one is selecting the read status from the particular post menu ("[..]").
    In private chats, a sinple check sign (similar to whatsapp) could signalize if a message had beend read by your counterpart.

  14. Add custom user groups for mentions

    Add cusom user groups for mentions. Something like @developers or @frontend to mention all members of group in this channel. Also it would be useful for large teams, when novices does not know who is who - with this feature they can determinate at least group

  15. Add write policy for channels and private groups

    This feature is essentially a "force mute" in a meeting room, when you want to enable some people to listen in, but not to speak.

    - Add an option to restrict the ability to post to a channel or private group (requires channel header menu redesign--the menu is over the UX guideline of 5-7 options per menu)
    - Add the ability to define users who have the ability to post, which would by default include Team Admins. We don't currently have UX for a channel owner or channel creator, but in future Enterprise releases this may be added
    - Include…

  16. Status labels

    **The idea:**

    One can set their status to some arbitrary text, which will be shown next to your username.

    **Details:**

    The command

    ```
    /status My new status
    ```

    can be used to change your status, it will then appear next to your screen name in replies:

    If the text is too long, it is truncated and you need to hover to see the full status:

    https://i.imgur.com/0GoP3HZ.png

    **Why:**

    It is incredibly useful to be able to see what your team mates are working on. Currently, our team are using a channel for this, but it's pretty inconvinient and quickly gets…

  17. History of shared files in a channel

    Would be lovely to view the files that have been shared in a channel. This would go neatly with the idea of pinning posts as well. You could be able to pin files.

  18. mute individual users

    As a user, I would like to be able to ignore the postings from other users. I would like to individually select which users I want to ignore. It should be easy to add/remove users from my ignore list.

  19. Implement Automatic Right-To-Left (RTL)

    Most popular text editors change the text direction automatically to RTL (Rgiht to Left) when you enter a text in RTL languages such as Persian, Arabic or Hebrew. If that was the case in the Mattermost, we (the RTL language speaking people!) could use Mattermost much more productively, and localization to Farsi, Arabic, etc was possible.
