  1. MSI installer for windows client

    We need a MSI file for automated (silent) installation. That way you can deploy the application with the group policy of windows.

  2. Tasks Management

    I would really like to have a task management feature or app integration.

    As I'm using Glip for some projects (as guest, not for my company, to avoid the Data trap you know very well from Slack :-), the best way is to see how it works here:

  3. Have "Unread" option showing all unread messages and notifications across all channels

    Slack has something similar that shows above all channels. It makes it easy to browse through your unread messages without having to click each channel separately.

  4. Preinstalled "matter-bot"

    I´m just stealing the idea from slack ;)

    I would like to see a simple bot that I can configure much like the "Slack Bot" (https://get.slack.help/hc/en-us/articles/202026038-Slackbot-your-assistant-notepad-programmable-bot)

    This is a great and simple way to get started with bots!

  5. Easily change default channel town-square

    Across Go and React code, town-square channel is hardcoded. Maybe we can make it configuration-based so teams can easily change it and the platform can redirect correctly to /channel/<new name>.

    However doing this, we also have to change the mobile app code e.g. https://github.com/mattermost/android/blob/master/app/src/main/java/com/mattermost/mattermost/MainActivity.java#L137 code.

  6. 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.

  7. Edit default emojis

    We use the default emojis and the custom emojis in our Mattermost. To custom it even more, we would like to edit the full set of default emojis (not create new ones) e.G. :D.

    The proposition could be done in several parts:
    - setup in the administration panel a way to edit the picture for one default emoji
    - setup a way from the administration panel to import a set of emojis to replace the default ones
    - setup in the administration panel a way to reset the default emojis to the original ones
    - update mobile applications to…

  8. EE: Data retention policy for individual teams and channels

    In addition to specifying custom data retention policy globally across all teams and channels (see https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/10007076-ee-data-retention-and-prune-reset-clear-channel-c), allow

    2) channel, team and system admins set custom policies for individual channels

  9. Allow resizing and hiding of sidebar

    It would be nice to be able to click/drag the sidebar (where channels are) and resize it/ hide it if desired.

    Resizing it and having a channel name abbreviated with ... could make sense;

    ex: Town Square once it starts getting cut off would become Tow... (depending on how small you make the sidebar). Then if you go over far enough it snaps into a hidden position

  10. Disable direct messages

    Our company would find it useful if there was an admin option to disable direct messages all-together.
    We think this may help the work of teams where there is no need to discucc anything outside of team channels.

  11. Users should be able to delete their datas without any admin intervention.

    Hello,
    cli tool is not user's compliant :)
    Users should be able to delete (not just deactivate) their datas without any admin intervention.

  12. Forbid to change username

    Add an server wide option to forbid renaming user names. It might be a security problem, if someone claims abandoned user name (/account name).

  13. Provide an option to only show channels with unread messages

    We have a Mattermost installation where I'm subscribed to 24 channels, most of which are fairly quiet. Except for the channels that are at the top and bottom of the list (of course). I'm continually scrolling up and down.

    I'd like to have an option that hides channels that have no unread messages. Hiding all-read private groups and DMs would be a bonus.

    Thanks Brian and others for suggesting this feature!

    We are considering to add a setting to hide all read channels in the sidebar: https://mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/MM-7502

    In the meantime, there are two features that can help your teams:
    1) Mattermost v4.7+ supports a setting to group all unread channels at the top. This makes it easier to find all your unreads. It must first be enabled by your System Admin: https://docs.mattermost.com/administration/config-settings.html#group-unread-channels-experimental
    2) Mattermost v4.9+ shows unread channels when using the channel switcher (CMD/CTRL+K)

  14. 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.

  15. Support ip and mac text search

    The docs explains that:

    "IP addresses, for example 10.100.200.101, do not return results."
    (https://docs.mattermost.com/help/getting-started/searching.html#hashtags)

    I would like to be able to search on ip-strings from my messages.

  16. Adding users to group DM should provide an option to keep history

    When you have a multi user direct message and you add new members (as a conversation grows to need more people) you end up creating a new DM with no history. Instead mattermost should provide an option to keep the history available.

  17. unlimited search results

    for the default search backend (sql), search results are capped at 100!

    you can verify this by loading jquery and doing:

    $('.search-item__container').length;

    you can see that paging isn't supported:

    https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/app/post.go#L821

    and the sql uses LIMIT 100:

    https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/store/sqlstore/post_store.go#L834

    i know this isn't an issue in enterprise because you're using elasticsearch, but please either bring elasticsearch to team edition or fix the default search backend. 100 results is sad :(
