      • 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…

          This seems like a really useful feature. The pre-requisite component is probably a Javascript driver (https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/12418425-javascript-driver) that would be needed to allow 3rd party websites to include Mattermost functionality properly.

          For anyone interested in this feature that has votes left, or any new arrivals to the conversation, please consider upvoting the pre-requisite.

        • 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.

            Per the [Mattermost manifesto](https://www.mattermost.org/manifesto/), the open source Team Edition is meant for “teams”, and we’ve been transparent that the [single-channel guests feature is part of the Enterprise Edition](https://about.mattermost.com/direction/).

            We think of this as a feature for corporate compliance, and feel it would confuse Team Edition if it were added. The purpose of Team Edition is to be a leading self-hosted team communication solution. We don’t want to confuse that focus with features for Customer Relationship Management tool, Applicant Tracking Systems, nor a Vendor Management System.

            Team Edition is a “virtual office” for teams who know each other and who work together effectively. Isolating people from the team moves us away from the ideal.

            Regarding mobile apps, they’ll be [moving to React Native soon](http://forum.mattermost.org/t/react-native-roadmap/2339) which should improve performance on slow network connections (our biggest challenge) as well as performance overall.

            Creating and participating in Polls would be great,
            to be embedded within a message.

            • 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.

              • 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

                • 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.

                  • Easy to use server side encryption for every server like in Nextcloud

                    Having secure "at rest" data on the server is very important for data safety, especially due to the new privacy laws within the European Union. Nextcloud for example offers an easy to use server side encryption for its services within the settings. No special software is neesed.

                    Our organisation really wishes an easy to setup server side encryption within the dashboard.

                    • 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.

                      • Allow users to choose the Teammate Name Display option

                        From version 4.0 the Teammate Name Display option is an administrator only option for the reasons explained at https://forum.mattermost.org/t/switching-teammate-name-display-to-a-system-console-setting/3366

                        Please add another option in the _System Console_ under _Users and Teams_ "Allow users to choose Teammate Name Display" which allows users to choose how to display users' names in posts and the Direct Messages list.

                        We understand that the name in the push notification would not reflect an individual user's preferences; this would be totally fine for us (but it probably should be mentioned in the description text of the new option).

                        The main thing is that our users prefer…

                            • Install Mattermost in a Subdirectory

                              We are using HAProxy and multiple subdirectories as internal redirects, to consolidate services.

                              Right now, Mattermost assumes it is being install at the root of a fully qualified domain name, so moving it anywhere breaks multiple paths for many files.

                              It would be much more valuable for teams to be able to deploy to "http://www.example.com/chat" instead of always resorting to "http://chat.example.com/".

                              See: https://mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/PLT-200

                                • 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.

                                  • 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…

                                    • Sort contacts by last message

                                      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?

                                      • Add a Windows universal app so that Windows 10 Mobile rollouts can use Mattermost

                                        Let's go Windows Universal with this, and bring Mattermost to a whole new market of Windows 10 Mobile users who're waiting for first party apps for apps just like this. Then Mattermost truly becomes a Slack competitor.

                                        • 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…
