  1. Separate storage limit per team

    I'm hosting a single team installation for 2 local charities (each has their own team). It would be great to be able to set a separate storage limit per team. In small situations like this it's not necessary to run 2 instances of mattermost. but this setup is only manageable if we can specify a limit per team.

  2. 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 is not mandatory, it…

  3. Notify Modified Messages And Added Reactions

    There should be an option to allow MM to send notifications wheneven user modifies a message or maybe even when a message is deleted.
    Also you be great to have anotification wheneven someone adds a reaction to your message.

  6. Add an API for getting private channels

    As a system admin using the API, it would be useful to get a list of private channels for a team.

    Currently, one can get posts for private channels through the channels/{channel_id}/posts API, but that assumes that the admin knows the channel_id. Finding that ID cannot be done through the API.

    Use case: for reporting purposes, we want to get the count of messages per private channel each month.

  7. 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.

  8. 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 useful to follow low…

  9. Option in a channel: force view pinned posts

    In some channels some messages are ‘must read’...
    An option ‘I have read this one’ would be great then.
    It would also be nice to be able to reorder the pinned posts.

  10. 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

  11. one file installation on hosted servers

    The installation should be only depending on a ftp-access to a hosted server storing data in flat files. Second best would be mysql connection.

  12. 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.

  13. Add "edited by admin" when admin edit someone's message

    Team admin can edit users messages (when option is available) but it can be usefull to specify when it's not the user himself that edit, but an admin.

    Proposal: add "(edited by admin)" instead of "(edited")

  14. Push-to-Talk

    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!

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. Teamspeak Plugin Integration

    Teamspeak is the top voice chat app in the market.

    https://teamspeak.com/en/ 2

    I suggest to have a MM integration plugin.

    It needs to work on Browser and MM clients too.

  19. 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.

  20. Add the posibility to select a default team afer login

    Add the possibility to set a "default" team for every user. Currently the teams i am a member of are sorted alphabetically. If I login via GitLab the first team is selected.
    I would like to have the option to select a "default" team which is automatically selected after login and not the first in an alphabetically order.
