  1. Android Multi-Window support

    Support the Android multi-window feature. Currently, resizing of the application window seemingly crashes the app.

    • Make the text box background match the rest of the dark theme

      When in either of the dark themes on the Android app, the text box has a white background which is super jarring. Can we get it matched with the rest of the theme please?

      • Support external keyboard

        See issue: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-mobile/issues/2512
        When an external keyboard and an on-screen keyboard is used, the chat input text field looses focus as soon as the on-screen-keyboard is hidden, probably because hiding the keyboard changes the screen size and therefore triggers a redraw/relayout. I suggest to fix this.

        • Add Office365 authentication support for native mobile apps

          This feature is a show-stopper level requirement for using Mattermost on Mobile with companies in the Microsoft/Azure ecosystem.

          Reason being that most large scale companies have centralized identity management and have policies that prevent any application into their ecosystem if they cannot centrally control access to it. As an example, corporate IT usually want to make 100% sure that when they disable a user account from their AD, the change is carried over to all business applications and there's no risk of the user retaining access to company information once they have left. Using a central identity provider also makes…

          • Opt-in for push notifications (only push when app is open or provide disable function)

            Mattermost is great while I am at work, even when I'm away from my desk I can get push notifications. And with the related issues
            1) https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/13834386-option-to-push-notify-to-mobile-even-when-logged-i
            2) https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/15105891-un-push-notifications-after-i-actively-read-all-me
            3) https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/16443028-android-push-notification-play-even-with-chat-open

            implemented, everything is fine while I am at work. BUT:

            When I'm away from work, on vacation or just in the pub, I don't want to get push notifications. So I don't like that Mattermost will receive and display push notifications whether the app is open or not. I would like to opt-in to push notifications and not have Mattermost listen/display notifications just because it is installed on Android.

              • Add support for Adaptive Icons on Android 8

                Android 8 introduced a featured called Adaptive Icons; it lets users pick the shape of icons on their home screen. Supporting this is extremely easy, and only requires 4 lines of XML code. Please add support for this feature in a future release.

                Documentation is available here: https://developer.android.com/guide/practices/ui_guidelines/icon_design_adaptive.html

                • Mobile: Option to send by pressing Enter

                  Ability to configure the Enter key behavior: submit the message you are writing instead of create a new line when you press the enter key (it's useful for example if you are using an external keyboard)

                  • Client for Ubuntu Touch

                    Hello,
                    as Ubuntu Touch (UT) is not dead. See https://ubports.com
                    They are doing an awesome job getting UT going.

                    I wanted to know if there is someone who wants to write a client for this OS :)

                    Cheers.

                    • Build Android app without Google Play Services

                      The Android app requires the Google Play Services because it uses GCM for push notifications. This library is not open-source so it prevents Mattermost from being included in FOSS repositories like F-Droid.
                      It would be nice to have an option that builds the app without GCM.

                      • Closing UI for direct messages in the channel list

                        Mobile app for Android dose not have close UI of direct message channel in channel list. Browser and Windows client have it.
                        This feature should be useful when maintaining the channel list if many direct messages are opened.

                        • I forgot my password option on Mobile

                          There is no option on the mobile apps for a password email to be sent to the user if they have forgotten their password. I have had to instruct them to go on a computer and request a password reset email. I do not know if there is a reason for not having this, but I think it would be a time saver for most users because most users are on mobile only. Thanks!

                          • Pinned posts on mobile app

                            Currently there is no way to view or create pinned posts with the Android app.

                            We're using pinned posts for announcements, but many of our users are exclusively using the mobile app.

                            • Login with QR code

                              I have a very long password and I would like to keep it. To make it easier to login on the phone it would be great if a QR is code shown on the computer which I can scan. (Where I am already logged into Mattermost.) Similar to Whatsapp where you login like this on the computer.

                                  • android notification priority

                                    Android has a notification implementation that supports priority levels. (https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/notifiers/notifications.html). This means that you can define different priorities for the notifcation. lowest means no notification and max is that you get a pop up/in from the top even in full screen apps (like a movie)

                                    Its very disturbing to have that pop in when you are busy with other stuff. especially in the weekend while you are not working (mattermost is in my case work related). If you look at Telegram, you can choose your priority for the notification, or at least this is possible via the settings…

                                    • Implement emoji picker for Android (same as already implemented for reactions)

                                      A lot of our team members ask for this feature, as using Android's system emoji keyboard leads to ??? on other platforms. Would be really helpful to have an Android emoji picker in the same style which is already implemented for reactions. The current system (typing : and emoji name) is not really working, especially for new team members.

                                      • Open/View any type of files within built-in applications

                                        Also we need an ability to open any type of files within built-in mobile applications without the need of previously downloading file. For example: one chat member sends a “.docx” file to the group chat, other members can open this file directly by tapping the link once and choose an application to open it
