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.1,095 votesunder review · Katie Wiersgalla responded
We’ve opened a design ticket to start exploring this feature: https://mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/MM-36529
This will need feasibility explorations given performance concerns on the server-side. As a result, we may start by only offering read receipts in Direct Messages and Group Messages that have a maximum of 8 users.
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 |
Option | Votes
Coke | 3/15 Users
Sprite | 2/15 Users

Server facilitated encryption of database contents
This feature proposal is for the ability to encrypt posts/direct messages in the database, with a server-side encryption of the database contents.522 votesstarted · Adminmattermost.org (Moderator, Mattermost) responded
Hey all, we’ve outlined available encryption options here: https://docs.mattermost.com/administration/encryption.html
Would love to hear feedback from everyone who contributed to this feature proposal!
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.288 votes
global/common channel across teams
Add the ability for teams to share "global" channels.
We have multiple teams but have a need for a common channel across all teams.275 votes
Voice Messages Record and Play
The same way we can send messages, we should be able to send voice messages.
It should be as simple as click "add voice", record what you want, press send and it's made available on the server for others to listen.
It should be supported by browser and mobile client apps.256 votes
Ability to view channels without joining
Some users want to view a channel before deciding to join: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/2382253 votes
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.247 votes
search through all teams
Right now the scope of the search feature is limited to the current team. It would be great to have option allowing to specify the scope: channel, team, global (for example)217 votes
Support for multilines in cell in markdown tables
Add support for multiple lines in tables.
From: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/1557183 votes
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.178 votes
Use a different color thread bar for different threads
When there are multiple threads going on in the same channel, all lines are prefixed by a grey vertical bar. The only way to separate the threads is to read the reference message. If the vertical bars had different colors (randomly selected), it would be easy to at a glance see which messages belongs to which threads.164 votes
should implement an admin interface to the System Console to make the server auto update to the latest MM release
It would be great to make admins life easier to develop an auto admin function to Mattermost that on click downloads, installs and updates the given installation, so the admin doesn't need terminal or root access anymore. Especially renewing the config (put the existing entries in the new/extended config) would be helpful.148 votes
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 appreciates a platform autoconverting another user's input)

Add ability to move mistaken thread replies in a channel to the intended thread
If a user misses replying to a thread in a channel and instead replies directly to the channel, this message is not part of the thread that it was intended to be and the conversation is not clear.
There should be a way for a user or channel admin to move a message to the intended thread inside the channel and keep it inline with the on-going threaded conversation (since everything is timestamped this seems possible).
This would clean up the conversations and mistakes that users will make.139 votesstarted · Adminmattermost.org (Moderator, Mattermost) responded
Work on this feature has begun! Big thanks to @kkekkonen for starting the effort.
If anyone would be interested testing it, you can help out here: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/pull/9165
PS: Previous update incorrectly mentioned that this an Enterprise Edition feature.
send message later
I'd find it realy useful to be able to send a message later at a given date and time (e.g. like Buffer).
Often, I'd find some useful or interesting info I want to post to the team chat at off-hours, and the message could either be overlooked because the timestamp will be quite old during work hours, or I'd disturb team members who have hot keywords defined and get notified automatically.136 votes
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!).138 votesplanned · Adminmattermost.org (Moderator, Mattermost) responded
Hey all! Thanks for upvoting the feature, it is now planned: https://mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/MM-10456
Anyone interested helping contribute the feature to the project?
Users should be able to delete their datas without any admin intervention.
cli tool is not user's compliant :)

Add Gitea OAuth2 Support
Support Gitea's OAuth2 provider as an authentication source.
Currently, the team edition only supports GitLab as an OAuth2 source. GitLab is pretty heavyweight and many people prefer other software for a variety of reasons.
Gitea (https://gitea.io/en-us/) is a really nice open source, community supported Git server. They recently added support for acting as an OAuth2 provider (see https://docs.gitea.io/en-us/oauth2-provider/ for documentation). It would be great if Mattermost would support Gitea as an OAuth2 provider.121 votes
