  1. Away status

    Mark user as away if there is no activity for more than 15 minutes.
    An /away command would be nice as well.

      Away status is now available on master, set to 5 minutes. If anyone is interested in implementing the /away slash command or making the away duration configurable please reply here and we can open a ticket?

    • Add a file download progress bar

      You constantly need to check Explorer to see if file has finished downloaded or not, very bothersome. A progress bar / download indicator will be very helpful.

      • Interactive Message Dropdowns

        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 'Snooze' dropdown button does not have an equivalent in Mattermost. (For now I am going to have one button for Snooze of 20 minutes... not as flexible as I'd like)

        • Android App: Notification on Timeout or Logout

          Send Android Users a Notification if they have been logged out.
          We previously had session lengths of 1 month. After that, the App silently just doesn't send any more notifications about messages and users forget about it.
          Only if you open the App directly, you'll see that you have been logged out.

            Hey all,

            Thanks for the report. We’ve identified the issue and fixed it in v1.13. You should receive a push notification after the session expires informing that happened.

            Note that for the fix to take effect, you would need to log in with v1.13. So you might see your session expire without receiving a push notification one more time, but you should receive that notification thereafter.

            Mattermost v5.4 also adds a session expiry notification for the desktop app and desktop browser.

          • Let someone get to a public channel with just one hyperlink

            Yesterday I tried to share a link to a public channel on mattermost with people who had never visited the site.

            Unfortunately when they clicked it they were redirected to the default home page, and not even for the home page for that group. I then found out later that I could get someone there with two hyperlinks (1) an invite link for the group and (2) a direct link to the channel.

            I think it would be much easier for someone to be able to click just one hyperlink and be redirected to the page you intended. It would…

              Great suggestion Vincent! This is in fact fixed in v5.1 release coming on July 16th.

              With that release, when the user clicks on a link to a specific channel outside of Mattermost, and goes through the account creation process, they will land on the channel they intended to view.

              More details are included in this ticket: mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/MM-9479

              If you see any issues with this functionality on the v5.1 release, let us know!

            • Restrict team by email

              It is currently possible to restrict account creation to specific email domains via “Settings > Users and Teams > Restrict account creation to specified email domains”; however, once a user has an account, they can be invited to any team, or join any open team.

              We would like to be able restrict individual teams to an email domain too. Specifically, we have a group of external contractors who have access to their own team, but we don’t want them to accidentally end up in any of our other teams.

              For example, team “Foo” would only allow members from @foo.com, and…

              • Use the actual group url as the invite url

                Why use a separate URL to invite people to a group on mattermost?

                It seems like there would only be an advantage to keeping the URLs separate if someone could visit a page without actually joining it, but that isn't the case.

                When someone (for the first time) tries to use the URL that we see in the address bar when looking at the group they don't actually make it to the page. Instead they are redirected to the default home page.

                • Message preview for Android notifications

                  The system notifications triggered by Mattermost don't include a message preview (only a message "@xyz sent you a direct message" with "@xyz sent you a direct message" as preview), even if "show content" on lock screen is activated for Mattermost notifications. It would be nice to have message previews.

                    Thanks for the feedback!

                    This is in fact available, but your System Admin might have restricted what information is included in push notifications. We provide three options:
                    – General description with only the sender’s name
                    – General description with user and channel names
                    – Full message snippet including a message preview

                    You can contact your System Admin to see which option they’ve chosen. More information here: https://docs.mattermost.com/administration/config-settings.html#push-notification-contents

                  • Link to a channel in chat like #announcements

                    It would be nice if I can point to an other cahnnel. Mostly useful for public ones, like:
                    > free beer! find details in #announcements
                    but it would be even better if we can point to any other, maybe in other team too.

                    • Option to have permanent sessions on mobile apps, manageable on the server

                      After logging in to the server on a mobile app the server should assign a permanent session to the app. This avoids the necessity of re-loggin in to mobile apps.
                      In order to keep security the user should be able to view logged in session ("devices") on the server an be able to log them out if necessary.

                        Thank you Andreas! Both of these can actually be achieved today:

                        1. Your System Admin can configure how long mobile sessions last in System Console > Security > Sessions > Session length for mobile apps. https://docs.mattermost.com/administration/config-settings.html#sessions

                        2. Each user can view logged in sessions in Account Settings > Security > View and Logout of Active Sessions. Your System Admin can also revoke all sessions from a user in System Console > Users if necessary.

                      • Delete User (to be GDPR conform)

                        The european unions new general data protection regulation grants user the "right to be forgotten" (Article 17, GDPR). Event though Art. 17. (1) a. grants the exception, that data does not have to be deleted if it is still necessary for the purpose it was collected or processed, it is questionable if this exception is applicable.

                        I understand the effort to maintain a consistent history of conversations and interactions and therefore not implementing a deletion of users and the work it takes to implement a compromise between guranteeing the data subjects right to be forgotten and consistent conversation history.

                        Still…

                              From version 4.0 the Teammate Name Display option is an administrator only option for the reasons explained at https://forum.mattermost.org/t/switching-teammate-name-display-to-a-system-console-setting/3366

                              Please add another option in the _System Console_ under _Users and Teams_ "Allow users to choose Teammate Name Display" which allows users to choose how to display users' names in posts and the Direct Messages list.

                              We understand that the name in the push notification would not reflect an individual user's preferences; this would be totally fine for us (but it probably should be mentioned in the description text of the new option).

                                • Consolidate display of join/leave messages into a single System Message

                                  Where lots of users join, I find it interferes with seeing real content. Any screen is dominated by System join messages.

                                  • Zoom video meetings integration

                                    Make an integration for Zoom. In slack, you could type
                                    /zoom [meetingnumber]

                                    , and join a meeting (if the meeting number was supplied), or start up a new meeting. I miss this dearly

                                    • When idle, only send email notification if status doesn't change to online in 1 minute

                                      I suggest the following behavior when email notifications are turned on. Assuming email notifications are turned on, when a notification is triggered (direct message, mention, etc.), if the recipient's status is idle, trigger the usual MatterMost interface and system notifications, but wait 1 minute before generating an email. If the user's status changes back to online, we can assume they can/have seen the notification so do not generate an email. If their status is still away after the 1 minute delay, send the email as normal.

                                      There are many times I have the MM client open but not the active…

                                        • Allow migration of users (e.g. to LDAP) using RESTful API and Go API

                                          It's great that Mattermost now supports LDAP/AD. Unfortunately the only way to migrate existing users (we pre-create the users) to LDAP is through the CLI. Since all our work is being done using programs (on other servers) written in Go, we'd love to see the ability to migrate users en masse or individually using the Go API. And, it just seems natural to allow such migration using the RESTful API as well.
