  1. Restore a deleted channel

    We would like to be able to restore deleted channels. One of which this can be done is to have a trash box of all deleted channels, of which we can restore back to in case we would like to reopen it.

  2. email notifications for new messages and for channel joins look alike and have a similar email notification subject

    This behaviour leads to that one could not see at first sight which type of message the notification was for, because the email subject is always "New Mention on...".
    It would be more informating and appropriate to choose a email subject that makes clear at first sight which kind of mention the notification is about. (channel join, user disabling, mention, etc)
    In my opinion a channel join is no mention in sense of a new message. There is a difference between a new message and other System activities and this should be clear withing the notification email.
    Maybe ist reasonable…

  3. Add support for CSS themes

    I'm not happy with the current theme system. We can change only colors, but I would like to change a bit everything, to get something looking for instance like The Lounge:

    https://thelounge.chat/

    Things I would like to change:
    - typography
    - borders + shadow and radius
    - margins and paddings

    It would be quite easy if we could upload a piece of CSS based on a few class selectors. Like:


    .app__content {
    box-shadow: 0 0 25px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.75);
    z-index: 10;
    border-radius: 5px;
    }

  5. Handle old browsers more gracefully

    Mattermost does not work on some old browsers (e.g. Android 4.2: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/8825).
    I don't expect the team to support these legacy browsers but currently it only displays a blank page, which can be confusing for users.

    It would be nice if Mattermost could display an user-friendly error message when the browser is not supported.

  6. windows people

    Summary
    Microsoft now supports pinning conversations within applications to the taskbar through what they call the My People API:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/contacts-and-calendar/my-people-support

    It looks like it primarily supports windows store apps/c#, so it might not be possible to do with electron/node. It's also OS-specific, which isn't really beneficial to the app as a whole.

  9. File upload - Opens a modal where user can enter message to be displayed along with image.

    File upload should trigger a modal to be shown in which user can add more files and also enter corresponding text against the image upload.
    I would like to help in implementing this feature.

  11. PDF Preview Issue

    When you select a PDF that has been posted to Mattermost, the preview is not at a readable size and it only shows the first 5 pages. As we use Mattermost to circulate confidential documents to our Advising and Dispute Resolution Committee, this isn’t ideal as folks would prefer to preview only and not download to their computers.

  13. Interactive Message links/flat-buttons

    I really like the interaction message buttons!
    https://docs.mattermost.com/developer/interactive-message-buttons.html

    I am trying to clone the /remind functionality in Slack into Mattermost, and the button interactions are working well, but the links to 'delete', 'Close list', 'view completed items', etc do not have an equivalent in Mattermost. (For now I am going to perhaps have buttons for these though it's not as flexible as I'd like)

  14. Add a config show cli command

    For troubleshooting purposes it would be handy to have a platform config show command that lists the effective configuration values. Thus, overriding environment variables must be considered. At least from the wording of platform config validate ('The document is valid'), it seems that environment variables aren't considered.

    There could be filters to mangle the output, but grep is fine, imo.

    As of now, a change of theme on one device is automatically synched to all other devices.

  16. Display extended message preview on hover

    When you hover a reference to an existing message (such as where one has been quoted in a thread), it would be neat if, when you hover the pointer above the abridged message preview, you could see the full text. This would save a click or two.

  17. Distinguishing Between Users Compact Mode

    In compact view, it is difficult to tell users apart. The color of the user's name is the same as the message itself. Perhaps a smaller display image, or coloring their name. I don't even use compact view now becuase it's too hard to tell who said what.

    Thanks!

  19. Add "edited by admin" when admin edit someone's message

    Team admin can edit users messages (when option is available) but it can be usefull to specify when it's not the user himself that edit, but an admin.

    Proposal: add "(edited by admin)" instead of "(edited")
