  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.

    We’re very excited to share that we’ve begun design work on this project and are currently testing prototypes with the Mattermost community and some customers, with development starting soon after. We will be rolling out the threading changes in stages, starting with an experimental configuration setting that can be enabled by System Admins.

    If you haven’t already, we encourage joining the Folded Reply Threads channel (https://community.mattermost.com/core/channels/folded-reply-threads) on our community server as we share progress updates and gather feedback.

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

    Read receipts are not currently planned, but the feature is under consideration. Read receipts raise concerns about privacy, needing consideration of config settings, end user settings, and appropriate defaults to ensure we can create a good user experience whether Admins or users prefer to enable this feature or not. In addition, since read receipts involve heavy effort in testing and maintenance, we have not prioritized the investigation of this feature over our current initiatives. However, the feature is included in our regular roadmap planning process and we certainly appreciate the upvotes on the feature request to guide us in that process.

  4. 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
    ...

  5. Server facilitated encryption of database contents

  6. 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:

    https://i.imgur.com/Sggqc59.png

    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 very messy.…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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)

  16. Add option to set multi-team team or server-wide display defaults

    Add an option to allow changing of the default "Display" settings from the System Console. (E.g set Theme & Teammate Name default "Display" settings globally).

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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!).
