  1. Adding a "Do Not Disturb" Mode

    We all know that people need to concentrate to work efficiently. This is why macOS and then all the operating systems have introduced the "Do not Disturb" mode, which allows to focus on your work.
    And I think we can do even better while integrating it to Mattermost.
    What is in the "Do not disturb" functionality ? It stops alls notification except the ones which doesn't disturb you.
    But the question is : why is it interesting to add it to Mattermost ?
    In a Mattermost server (for me), there are lots of different channels. Even the basics channels of…

  2. Users should be able to delete their datas without any admin intervention.

    Hello,
    cli tool is not user's compliant :)
    Users should be able to delete (not just deactivate) their datas without any admin intervention.

  3. Ability to change the order of channel groupings

    There are several options now provided for changing the grouping and ordering of channels, but one is conspicuously missing IMO: the ability to change the ordering of the groupings.

    In my use of MM, I have a small handful of favorite channels, and then a bunch of other channels, and then a small handful of direct messages. Most of my communication is in the favorite channels and the direct messages, but the former is at the very top and the latter is at the very bottom. It is annoying to have to scroll through the wasteland of all of my…

  4. Allow administrators to set emoji aliases

    I've run in to several emoji that use a non-standard name in Mattermost, which I've found to be very confusing. One prime example is that the "party popper" emoji (as it's known on many other platforms) is called "tada" in Mattermost. I'd love to be able to set an alias of party_popper for this.

  5. direct constant url to newest stable release

    hello folks.

    mattermost-omnibus isn't a viable update mechanic for a lot of people as it has restrictions and is locked into several parts. IE - necessitates postgres and comes with nginx.

    mattermost doesn't appear to have their own apt-repo so updating that way isn't an option. github releases need to be built/compiled.

    i'm scripting my own update but I'm hitting a wall with how the URL for the newest release is formatted.

    Could we please get a direct URL to the newest release?
    Currently - https://releases.mattermost.com/5.32.1/mattermost-5.32.1-linux-amd64.tar.gz
    Ideally - https://releases.mattermost.com/latest/mattermost-linux-amd64.tar.gz

  8. make /commands referencable in post-text.

    There are interactive message buttons, but they dont flow neatly in the text. It should be possible to write a longer post, and reference commands and parameters in the text.
    Once the post is posted, they become clickable by everyone which would in some way ask for confirmation or just pre-fill the text-input-area and allow the users to execute said command.

    That way one could not even better educate users of (custom) commands, but could also help them prefill the arguments of commands.

    Example: I could write:

    hello there, it seems, like you want to use /command asdf for asdf…

  9. Admins should be able to see statistics of different channels too.

    Right now mattermost provides statistics at App level and at Team level. It would be really helpful if admins can see stats of different public/private channels too.

    That means if I have 15 different channels, I can stats of all of them and pick which one is being used the most and which is least.

    What do you think guys?

  10. Team admin should be able to export datas

    Right now, only mattermost instance admin can export teams but only all teams.
    There is two issues:

    It would be a great improvement if team admin could use the user interface (and not has to ask to his instance admin).

  11. what are you reading?

    Currently i'm reading 2 books the one is about American tradition like their dressing ways their food or like famous food of American people and majorly about their ascent like what is the difference between American ascent and England and some other staff and the second book which named as the "Animal Horn"[1] many early hornbooks were made by printing letters onto paper or vellum (animal skin) – both expensive materials at the time. To protect them, the letters were covered with a layer of animal horn like cow horns, sheep, goat etc so thin that it was see-through. This…

  14. Allow users to be set to disallow direct messages

    At the moment, you can configure users to be allowed to send direct messages either to other members of the team or to anyone on the server.

    I'd like to make it so that normal users cannot start direct messages at all.

    My particular usecase may be a little out of the sweet spot - I have created a mattermost for my children (quite young) who I want to be able to chat with while they are doing their home learning, but don't want them using public chat systems. I am happy for them to interact with each other in…

  15. Change custom attributes to support user set attribute values

    Custom attributes should optionally support having both a name and a value at the point of definition by the system admin.
    They would be as currently assigned to users/teams/group as
    appropriate. The value of the attribute could then be set at this time or by the user, team/group owner in a custom attribute extension to the user profile or similarly for for teams and group. Support for attributes of type simple
    (no value, current behavior), required (must be set), overridable (can be changed or not from value set by system) could also be added.
    An extension to markdown to return…

  16. Support other Postgres schema but public

    I have not found any way to specify the Postgres schema that mattermost should use and saw that the "public" schema was in the sql migration files.

    Using the public schema is not a recommended practice with postgres : https://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/DatabaseSchemaRecommendationsforan_Application

    See first section stating :
    "The recommendation is to create a single database with multiple named schemas [...]. Additionally, it is recommended to remove the public schema."

  19. Slack Api Compatibility:Shortcuts、App Home、Block Kit

    Mattermost currently lacks some feature of Slack app


    1. Block Kit is a UI framework for Slack apps

    2. Shortcuts give users clear entry points to access your app, can trigger modals and other app interactions

    3. App Home is a private, one-to-one space in Slack shared by the user and the app, within any App Home, there are multiple tabs, Some tabs like About And Messages are fixed, but Home tabs can be fully customized by apps

    these feature can improve Mattermost plugins user experience

  20. Prevent non-admin users from posting and editing to channel

    The use case is to provide information to users, for example, release notes, status updates, etc. In order to keep the channel relevant and to avoid clutter, non-admin users have read-only access.

    This feature allows a team to create "reference" channels.


    1. team admins: create, read, update, delete

    2. non-admin users: read-only

    This idea is similar to, and currently under review for Enterprise Edition:

    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/12874797-add-write-policy-for-channels-and-private-groups#comments

    This idea is related to:
