  1. Support Google Apps sign in when using the Android app

    You've added Google Apps SSO sign in following suggestion https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/14879976-google-apps-sign-in, but support is still needed in the app interface.

  2. 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.

  4. MSI installer for windows client

    We need a MSI file for automated (silent) installation. That way you can deploy the application with the group policy of windows.

  5. 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)

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Share pictures from the app

    It would be nice if pressing and holding a picture for a few seconds in the chat window would let you share it to other apps. Right now in the React app pressing on a picture in a chat will make it light up a bit, but there's no prompt to do anything with the picture. Also it seems that there's no way to share pictures from within the app in general.

    The only other OSS chat app I've found that allows this so far is rocket.chat (but only on their old Cordova app).

  12. Copy/Paste Individual Messages

    As it stands now, if I hold down on a message it selects one word, per Android's UI. Fine. However, when I click select all, it selects the entire chatroom, rather than that one message. It would be nice to (similar to Facebook Messenger) simply hold down on the message and have a menu pop up asking if you'd like to copy text. Similarly to another post I've made, perhaps in this pop up message, if there is a phone number or email listed in said message, you could select copy text (whole message), copy phone number, or copy email…

  13. Clickable Phone Number in phone app

    In other chat apps, if someone writes a phone number, it turns into a clickable link automatically, so you can easily call someone. In our field, we are constantly giving phone numbers in our chats for field staff who need a call from a supervisor, and this would speed up our processes immensely. Thank you.

  14. 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.

  15. Support 3rd Party Push Notification Services such as Pushy

    Google Play Services and GCM is blocked in China. This means that users that are not on VPN cannot get push notifications. The only known workarounds that I know of are using a 3rd party Push Notification service such as Baidu (http://push.baidu.com/doc/android/api) or Pushy (https://pushy.me/) or to run your own push notification service. I wish I didn't have to make this suggestion, but MatterMost is severely crippled by this and I dont see the geopolitics changing anytime soon.

  16. Android App: Support Gitlab double auth

    Actually having a mattermost instance connected to gitlab that use omniauth providers (in my case saml, github and google) is not compatible with the android client.

    As it's working on IOS, I suggest that you evolve the android client to make it compatible.

    From what I observe, the saml token is being truncated

  18. Add notification replies for wearables

    Currently, whenever a mobile notification is received, it displays the message in the notification, but accessing the notification from a wearable (Android Wear, Tizen, Pebble, etc.) only gives the option to show on phone, with no choice to reply to the message from the notification. It would be nice to have notification replies so that people with wearables can respond to messages quickly without needing to pull out their phone.

  19. Make it faster for overseas users

    This actually affects both iOS and Android devices the most. We are hosting our Mattermost instance in the US and it's fast for us in Canada and the US, but we have many team members in South Africa and loading the mobile app is very slow for them.
    This is because it's an HTML5 app that loads the entire UI over the internet each time you open the app.
    Especially on their slower 3G networks, this is a major issue.

    Slack does not have this issue as their mobile app is either a native app or it's just designed better…

  20. "Remember me" checkbox when start tne application

    It's quite annoying to input username\pass every start. Actually if user clears running applications he has to input username\pass again. I assume it's already had but I couldn't find this functionality.
