  1. Switch the status color indicator to the background of the icon

    User icons are okay now on the left side list but would it be even more clear to switch the icon color to white and change the background color for the status? Please check the link for a demo:

  2. Support moving channel without adding all members to new team first

    Currently when moving a channel with CLI you must first manually add all users to new team. The CLI should automatically add missing users to new team when moving channel.

  3. nano editor

    Some of us prefer nano over vi. It can't be that big of a deal to include nano in the container, can it?

  4. Direct message autoreply limit

    If two persons both have auto replies to DM messages on, it can lead to a situation where auto replies are sent both ways in eternal loop. Could there be some limit how many replies are sent to a person or in a discussion?

  6. Welcome message for new users

    It will be nice that upon entering a team, a welcome message is displayed to that user. Message can be composed on the Team Settings or perhaps in the console.
    In the message an admin can point out custom slash commands or any new feature that needs to be highlighted.
    User can save the message (just like any other) for future reference is desired.

  7. Use correct typographical symbols for all user-facing strings such as curly quotes for apostrophes (‘’) and quotes (“”)

    Use correct typographical symbols for all user-facing strings such as curly quotes for apostrophes (‘’) and quotes (“”).

    You should also avoid other typographical mistakes like n-dashes (–) and ellipsis (…) characters.

    See this thread for more details: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/4921#issue-198207996

  8. Snooze for channel notifications

    I don't want to miss when my team is posting comments on our channel but I also don't want to be be notified every few seconds when things pick up. It would be nice if I could receive a notification and am then aware things being said but I could go in and select a snooze option. Then for the next 15 minutes I don't get distracted for every posting and can choose where my attention is.

  9. "Hot Unread": Highlight channels with recent activity

    "Unread" on its own isn't always useful.

    I watch close to 100 channels. Many of the channels are in a permanent unread state because they're not critical. What I'd really like to know is which channels have recent activity (say within the last hour) so I can jump into an active conversation.

    This doesn't replace "Unread", but would be an elevated state, like "Hot Unread". After a period of time, it then falls back to "Unread"

  11. Prevent hashtags in code blocks from being counted as hashtags

    Whilst hashtags in code blocks are not highlighted blue and clickable, they do appear in a search for that hashtag and are treated as actualy uses of that hashtag on the back end.

    This causes issues as many code blocks inevitably have hashtags delineating comments.

    Ideally they should be ignored completely, but I reckon the behaviour should at least be consistent.

  12. Reply arrow on phone

    The reply arrow that is seen when hovering over a message on the desktop app is not available on the phone apps until you hit the "...". Is it possible to have both the ... and reply arrow visible on the phone app as well? Thanks!

  13. Private message with authorized members only

    Hi, (I am new to this forum but I have installed Mattermost in my organization)

    Is it possible to add a new choice in the administrative console in the option “Allow users to open private message channels with” to request permission to create private messages with members who use the platform.

    Currently, the configuration choices are:

    All members of the team
    Any user on the Mattermost server
    and I would like to add :

    Only authorized members
    To prevent all members from communicating privately without prior notice

    Is it a good idea ?

  16. have system tray icon indicate when not logged in

    The system tray icon is white when I am caught up on reading. It turns amber or red when I have messages to read or direct messages. But it was white all morning. I was curious why everyone was so quiet, but didn't look. Then I went to direct message someone and saw I wasn't even logged in.

    Feature suggestion: system tray icon indicate when not logged in.

  17. Notificiation settings per server

    If using Mattermost with more than one Server it would be great if the user could have separate notification settings or the option to mute one or more selected servers.

  18. Make switch channel more intuitive

    If I open the switch channel dialog and begin to type the beginning of a name for which several entries exist, then this list is ordered alphabetically and does not take into account open chats with people.

    This feature is only useful if you want to speed up navigation. I expect the dialog to show open chats before others so you dont have to navigate in the list to select the correct entry.

  19. Display option to add a click count next to embedded links

    Similar to how discourse (https://forum.mattermost.org/) tracks the number of clicks on a link.

    Proposed spec:

    1) Add Team Setting > Display > Advanced Message Display Options

    Title: Advanced Message Display Options

    Help text: "Advanced options for message display."

    [ ] Show count of clicks next to hyperlinks in messages.

    2) If zero clicks have been made on a link, show no indicator.
