  1. Voice Messages Record and Play

    The same way we can send messages, we should be able to send voice messages.

    It should be as simple as click "add voice", record what you want, press send and it's made available on the server for others to listen.

    It should be supported by browser and mobile client apps.

    • Add a command /play to play sound, movies quotes, etc.

      We use Mattermost in a small team and when it comes the time to chill out, we sometimes abuse of the #random channel
      We loved the emoticon customization and we would love to see the possibility to send a sound to react to a message with the right movie quote for example.

      That could be a plugin with a command like /play, I just doubt that the plugin would have the right to play a sound in browser.

      The sound (and the command) could be created by users just like emoticons. The user should have to upload a sound file…

      • Add ability to move mistaken thread replies in a channel to the intended thread

        If a user misses replying to a thread in a channel and instead replies directly to the channel, this message is not part of the thread that it was intended to be and the conversation is not clear.

        There should be a way for a user or channel admin to move a message to the intended thread inside the channel and keep it inline with the on-going threaded conversation (since everything is timestamped this seems possible).

        This would clean up the conversations and mistakes that users will make.

        • Video File Thumbnails

          Just like we have tumbnails on pictures. helping us identify what we are looking for without having to open the preview tool.
          It would be great if we could have thumbnails on videos too.

          • 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…

            • make threads collapsible

              A toggle option so that threads appear as "N comments" and open in the side-panel, so they do not interrupt the main flow of the channel, and you can follow each thread mode easily.

              • Limit number of times animated emoji will loop

                When users have their mattermost window open all the time, animated emoji that are endlessly looping can be very distracting and annoying. If they paused after looping a set number of times, it would greatly improve the user experience for me.

                • implement threads in slack import tool

                  implement threads in slack import tool.

                  right now, threaded messages lose their context when imported. they just become normal messages and not replies to other messages.

                  https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/10203

                  https://api.slack.com/docs/message-threading

                  in slack, replies are standalone objects. it works via a `thread_ts` (thread timestamp) attribute. `thread_ts` refers to the `ts` (timestamp) of the parent post. if a post has `thread_ts` == `ts`, then it is the beginning of a thread.

                  possible approach:
                  import all posts except for ones where `thread_ts` != `ts` (as these are replies to other posts). once that's done, go back and import the replies since their parents will have…

                  • rename flag post to bookmarked post

                    Users seem to expect that "Flag post" means "Report post" and do not think of it as a way to bookmark posts.

                    Especially as in the web-app "flag post" is not displayed along the other post-actions, but instead by the side of the posting username.

                    I already filed that as a github issue: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/9990

                    • Galera cluster support

                      Galera cluster provides multi master SQL database (e.g. upon MariaDB or MySQL) and can help strengthen the database backend. As it easy to deal with mattermost-server outages (simply run another instance very quickly), it is mostly painfull to deal with single DB outage.

                      Galera cluster can be supported in a direct way - add all db nodes to the configuration and use it in balanced way or as a fallback - or can be used via haproxy or similar.

                      • Email notification for any activity (without mention)

                        Currently, the notification system allows:

                        * Getting browser desktop notification for any activity
                        * Getting email notification for mentions

                        I'd like to have the mix: get email notification for any activity when I'm not logged-in. Many systems allow this (eg. gitter's "You have unread messages" emails), but I couldn't find it in Mattermost.

                        Ideally, the system would :

                        * Wait a few minutes before sending the notification, to send a mail containing several messages at once.
                        * Send only one notification even if there are further messages, to avoid flooding the mailbox with tons of emails

                        This would be very…

                        • Auto converted date time

                          In cases of a international team managing time zone is often difficult. It would be great if Mattermost supported some kind of timezone conversion. A user can choose his timezone in settings and when posting dates or times in a chat, a special syntax, probably something along the lines of (12:00 PM) would be required. The clients will auto convert the time to local users timezone while displaying. This could be an opt-in feature.

                          • Include private channels to search based on current user membership

                            Make Mattermost API channels search method
                            ( /teams/{team_id}/channels/search )
                            to include private channels where the current user is a member.

                            E.g. if the user A is a member of channel B and user A performs channel search, it will get channel B in a response from server if B matches the term.

                            In Mattermost 5.5.0 search returns only public channels in results. The only way to find channel by display name is to get all channels current user is a member of and iterate over them on client side.

                            • unlimited search results

                              for the default search backend (sql), search results are capped at 100!

                              you can verify this by loading jquery and doing:

                              $('.search-item__container').length;

                              you can see that paging isn't supported:

                              https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/app/post.go#L821

                              and the sql uses `LIMIT 100`:

                              https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/store/sqlstore/post_store.go#L834

                              i know this isn't an issue in enterprise because you're using elasticsearch, but please either bring elasticsearch to team edition or fix the default search backend. 100 results is sad :(

                              • Embed Calender, etc

                                It would be nice if there would be the possibility to create channels in which you could fix an embed content in the upper area. E.g. a Google calendar which shows the weekly overview or an external service for data storage etc..

                                Alternatively, a bot that writes the Daily Todos in a channel like slack would be possible: https://get.slack.help/hc/de/articles/206329808-Google-Kalender-f%C3%BCr-Slack

                                  As a Mattermost user (Manager/Admin of channel)

                                  I would like to close some discussion which is not needed anymore in the main channel (have been resolved)

                                  so that I can reduce the content noise in the channel content in the channel by displaying relevant content.

                                  #### Observed behavior (that appears unintentional)
                                  In any channel where there are a lot of people, there is always much noise. I would like to archive those threads which are not needed anymore and display the relevant content in the main view.

                                  Usually, it might be discussions which end with some…

                                    While "texting", I would like to be able to transmit an ad hoc sound bite, so that I can quickly verbalize something without having to start a call session - not store-and-forward, but immediate live voice, Star Trek comm badge style.

                                    I'm glad I ran into you guys in Punta Cana!

                                    • Delete messages from a channel to clean it

                                      Hello,

                                      in the case a channel is used to receive notifications in a defined interval, messages are bound to multiply and to be too numerous.

                                      So i think it should be interesting to delete the messages from a channel by the creator of this channel or by a webhook.

                                      • Make search work as it should.

                                        Currently, search is horribly broken for technical conversations. For example, given a post which contains a log message, such as:

                                        ```
                                        PROBLEM srvnagios at 10.4.1.74/MYSQL_threads-connected is WARNING
                                        ```

                                        A search for MYSQL will not show this as a result. This is, certainly, just an example and it's been relayed that this is by design due to a lack of support for preceding wildcards (which shouldn't be needed anyway). Simply typing MYSQL in the text box should return any string that contains MYSQL or mysql.
