  1. 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?

  2. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  8. 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/Database_Schema_Recommendations_for_an_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."

  10. 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

  11. 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:

  12. Add Gitea OAuth2 Support

    Support Gitea's OAuth2 provider as an authentication source.

    Currently, the team edition only supports GitLab as an OAuth2 source. GitLab is pretty heavyweight and many people prefer other software for a variety of reasons.

    Gitea (https://gitea.io/en-us/) is a really nice open source, community supported Git server. They recently added support for acting as an OAuth2 provider (see https://docs.gitea.io/en-us/oauth2-provider/ for documentation). It would be great if Mattermost would support Gitea as an OAuth2 provider.

  13. Simple image editor - draw line to highligt part of image

    A simple image editor for uploaded images. This to draw lines, write text and add arrows. Would be great when explaining things. As in a quick bug report.

  14. Add the team name to any notification emails

    Please add the team name to any notification emails sent by MM. While we have few teams with common channel names, it is really confusing from email body which team it is.

  15. Clearer notification for plugin upload failure (size limit)

    I was receiving a generic "Received invalid response from the server" messages when trying to upload the BigBlueButton plugin. I eventually discovered that it was because the Maximum File Size was configured to 5MB.

    A clear message stating either what the "invalid response" was or flagging the issue as "too large of a file" size would be less generic and easier to troubleshoot.

  16. Make new posts stand out more

    When there are multiple teams, when a new post is made to another team, it is difficult for users to notice it. I want you to show it with an impact that would reverse the color information of the icon.
    The same can be said for the channel name display within each team. It is difficult to understand with the current bold display.

  17. AWS S3 Prefix/Suffix

    Summary
    At the moment, it is only possible to use root of the bucket. It will be nice to be able to use subfolder of the bucket. Some of us have more than 50 buckets...adding even single one more is chaos.

    Expected behavior
    Be able to set S3Prefix in order to use s3://bucketname/s3prefix/s3_object

  18. Better wording for account deactivation

    When a user want to delete his account, he can think "deactivation" is enough but doesn't necessarily know that it just means that he cannot log anymore…

    Maybe (in advanced settings):

    "By deactivating your account you will no longer be able to log in but the messages will be kept. To permanently delete your account and your messages, please contact your administrator."

    And a similar (or the same) message in email notification.

  19. Image proxy support for normal proxy servers

    Mattermost image proxy supports atmos/camo Image Proxy and local image proxy. Support should be added for normal proxies that one would set via HTTPSPROXY environment variable. I need images to go through a proxy but I don't want to see HTTPSPROXY for entire application.

  20. Clarified "Channel Purpose"

    The "purpose" element of each channel is very difficult to see. Information such as who created this channel doesn't need to be noticeable. The necessary "purpose" statement is buried in the information. I want at least the "purpose" statement to bold the font.
    I want to hide or move information other than the purpose.
