  2. Calendar App

    To complement and extend the task management, a calendar app will really be a nice feature!

    Please see the Glip implementation of it
    https://glip.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/202321744-Calendar-App

    And so MatterMost will also become a Glip alternative 8-)

  4. Allow selecting and deleting multiple messages at once

    Allow Channel Admins to be able to enter "select" or "edit" mode where checkboxes appear next to the messages.
    Admins would be able to select messages one by one or to select a range of messages by clicking the first one, holding Shift button and selecting the last one (like we've used from other software).

    After selecting multiple messages, Admins would be able to delete them at once, or perform any other action that might be implemented during the development (move, archive, flag, something else).

    This feature would make it a lot easier to delete whole bunches of off-topic messages…

  5. Add badge for all unread non-mention messages

    Add badge for all unread non-mention messages to sidebar. Something like in skype. Actually it had already implimented, and would probably be merged into main release if a lot of people will be interest in this.

  6. Allow latex inline ($ latex here $)

    Currently you have to do

    latex
    latex here

    It would be handy if you could do

    $ latex here $ too

  7. Add actual permanent deletion - on database AND filesystem level

    It would be really, really cool, if one would be able to delete content permanently.

    The problem is that currently the mattermost installation will grow indefinitely.

    The idea is to allow system admins (or "./platform"-access) to clean storage and database.
    Selectively: delete all "deleted" files, delete all "deleted" messages.

    Currently you can delete users and teams permanently.
    (leaving their filesystem stuff)
    Which basically just needs some little extension.

    Also add some information for sysadmins on how much filesystem storage is currently in use (+used by deleted files) and add an option that warns sysadmins if the set number of GB…

  8. Add the option to increase font size

    Currently the web interface has no option to increase the font size. This is plainly silly. Please fix this ASAP.

  9. Administrator should be able to change the profile settings of an user

    An Administrator should be able to change the profile settings of an user (i.e. changing the user picture,user Name or first/last name)
    Also, an administrator should be able to prevent users from being able to changing these options. (policies)

  10. Keyboard shortcut to change team

    To have a single mattermost client connected to several teams is a great feature.

    What i find missing is a keyboard shortcut to change team. The other shortcuts are very good and I usually can navigate through many channels and conversations with keyboard only, but when I see that have received in other team, I have to use the mouse.

    Perhaps you could add tabs or something similar to the "quick channel switcher" (Ctrl-K) or have a new shortcut to switch teams (e.g. Ctrl-T).

  11. CMD/CTRL+number should switch teams

    Hitting CMD+1 should select the first team, CMD+2 should select the next etc. (I guess this translates to ctrl on Linux / Windows).

    Right now its a lot of mouse movement to switch between teams.

  13. member list

    Member list on side of chat window w/ status indicator

    Show a member list on the side of the chat window listing all the users that are in the current room, sorted by status and then name (so that logged out users are at the bottom).

    This seems critical to communication .. who's in the room, who's online, who am I talking to, am I in the right room before typing @everyone, etc. At a glance. The little member button with drop down is insufficient especially in rooms with hundreds of people.

    This is a repost, but the original is…

  14. hide offline contacts

    It would be nice to have an option, that enables the user to hide contacts that are currently offline.
    This would mainly apply to the "direct messages".
    It is really annoying to search through a long list (~50) of contacts you often need to chat with, when about 50% are currently offline and are therefore of no interest at the moment.

  16. File Archieving Feature

    I suggest to have a file archieving service that will move old files to an archive repository.
    If the user tries to access an archieved file, the server must be clever enough to recover that file from the archive repository.


    • Archive repository could be cloud server or a NAS with FTP service.

    • Upload files to archive repository whenever the file repository is full or the files are too old(set by the admin. I think 1 month old is enough).

    • Download files from archive repository will be slower. That’s fine this is an economical solution.

    • Archive repository is not mandatory, it…

  17. marking posts as read on viewing, not all in channel at once

    For example I have off-topic channel with 1000 unread messages. I want to read them all, but it takes 15 minutes or more. I start reading, read about 200 messages, but at that time I receive very important direct message, or mention in other channel. I switch to that channel, do what I need, but when I come back to off-topic channel, i have all messages marked as read. moreover - I instantly jump to the end of a channel, not to place where i stop reading.

    Also even if channel is opened, but i am reading something in past…

  19. Ability to disable rendering of animated emoji, or to hide posts, to improve performance

    The problem I am having is that in some channels when users are using tons of animated emojis, I am seeing my CPU sit at >=30%. If I then switch to a more static channel, the CPU usage drops off the top of the list.

    The feature I would love is to either:
    * Have the ability to disable the rendering of animated emojis (or gifs?)
    * Or to have the ability to hide posts

    Currently I have to make sure never to leave a heavy animated channel as my active channel.
