  3. It would be great if the search for the field position was possible.

    i can't find any persons in channel or in personal messages by Position.

    For example i have 3 "web-developer" users, and 2 "c# developers", i can find then by FirstName, LastName, nickname but field "Position" is out of search.

    It would be great if the search for the field position was possible.

  4. 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:

    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.…

  5. iOS and Android apps should allow multiple server connections

    right now in the iOS app if you setup an instance I do not see a way to setup another one and seeing as how the current architecture of the product is, I would need multiple servers for my org's needs. the app should be able to handle it as well.

    Thanks everyone for all the upvotes, the feature is now planned. We’re exploring design options for supporting multiple servers on the mobile apps here: https://mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/MM-11067

    We have also opened a channel to discuss supporting multiple servers in the mobile app, as we understand this is a highly requested feature. Everyone is welcome to join the channel and participate in the discussion: https://community.mattermost.com/core/channels/rn-multi-server-suppot

  6. 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!).

  7. Advanced message/rich text editor

    Currently, it's not easy to write long and complex messages (source code for example). It would be nice to have the option to open a rich editing window.

    For example, another icon could be added at the left of the input box that opens a rich editing window with something like tinymce features. Slack has something like that . A plus icon is at the left and you can choose various ways to enter text according your needs. Even code snippets.

  8. Search should include filenames of attached files/images

    Currently searching only looks at message text, not filenames of uploaded files.

  9. Map Lync/Skype for Business user presence to Mattermost

    Hi,

    We use Lync/Skype for Business as the primary communications tool at my company, but for small project/team communications we use a self-hosted Mattermost server, because it's obviously 9000 times better than SFB.

    However, Mattermost (especially the desktop client) does not integrate very well with Windows regarding the user's presence.

    Short Scenario:
    If I lock my computer, SFB immediately sets my presence to Away, meanwhile Mattermost doesn't.

    On the other way around, if I minimize the Mattermost Desktop client to the tray, and I have an other application running on full-screen, after a short period, Mattermost goes to mark…

  10. Improve web accessibility

    It would be great if the WCAG 2.0 guidelines could be implemented to help people with disabilities to use Mattermost.

    This is an area that is often overlook, specially by the recent wave of chat platforms, so it's an opportunity for Mattermost to differentiate itself from the crowd.

    This is planned. Would anyone be interested helping with this effort as we create tickets for them?

    It would be great to hear people’s feedback on what are the biggest gaps with accessibility currently.

  11. Pretty private message URLs

    Just like channel URLs but automatically created.
    Example:
    http://domain.com:8065/channels/town-square - default channel URL
    http://domain.com:8065/users/user - URL for private messages of the user
