  1. IOS/Android local notifications

    Use local notifications when the app is running or in background. I know that encrypted push notifications are supported when using the enterprise version, but it would be very handy if the app would support local notifications when running in background or foreground for new messages.
    This creates the ability to use the app without sending data around the world.

    • Private metadata on mobile notifications

      My organization is using Mattermost heavily, and we'd like to receive mobile notifications to make it more useful. However, currently Mattermost shares a lot of metadata with Apple's and Google's servers:

      https://docs.mattermost.com/mobile/mobile-faq.html#what-post-metadata-is-sent-in-mobile-push-notifications

      This is preventing us from enabling notifications.

      I'd like to suggest that you treat the Apple and Google push notification services just as a "wake up" signal, without including user ID, team ID, etc. The mobile app would then connect (via TLS) to its server, download any new messages, and generate local notifications based on those.

      I recently spoke with someone on the Mattermost team who suggested that…

        • Enable pasting images into text bar for the iOS app.

          Right now you cannot paste images into the text bar with the iOS app. This makes it difficult to share images by copying and pasting rather than saving and inserting. If I have an image in my clipboard, I would like to be able to long press in the text entry bar to trigger the paste button. This would then add the image to the text where I could review and either send or remove it.

          • Adjust font size in mobile app

            The font size in the Mattermost application is too small. It is possible to change the font size of iOS itself at the present time. But it will change include the entire UI. I want to change the font size of characters only in the posting part. It is also good to automatically adjust the font size according to the amount of characters. I want you to be able to adjust the font size at the very least.

            • Implement Support to "Share" Feature

              most of the social apps have “Share” feature.There are two ways. “Share From Mattermost To …” and “Share From … To Mattermost”

              Those allow integration between apps and make it easier to add messages and links to Mattermost.

              Cheers

                • iOS and Android apps should allow multiple server connections

                  right now in the iOS app if you setup an instance I do not see a way to setup another one and seeing as how the current architecture of the product is, I would need multiple servers for my org's needs. the app should be able to handle it as well.

                  • LaTeX equation rendering in mobile app

                    LaTeX is integrated in a very useful way in the desktop app (Linux and MacOS as far as I can see). However, on iOS as well as Android LaTeX appears as a code snippet. Unfortunately, I cannot offer to contribute this feature myself, but I would highly appreciate equation rendering also in the mobile app.

                      • Allow MFA Push Notification Approval for Apps such as DUO

                        Currently If you approve an MFA push notification from the same screen it works but if you open the MFA app to approve the authentication is goes back to the login page. We have tried it on Android and IOS devices. Can you please add this as a feature? They have a free version of DUO for 10 users you can do testing. https://duo.com/pricing/duo-free 1

                          When viewing reactions in the mobile app it doesn't appear to be possible to view who made each reaction. On the web and desktop app you can hover over the reactions to see who made them.

                          • Support keyboard shortcuts on iOS

                            As on the desktop, keyboard shortcuts are a huge improvement regarding efficiency and usability.

                            iPads are more and more used with keyboards and Apple provides an easy way to add keyboards shortcuts to an app.
                            So it would be great if without touching the iPad screen we could :
                            - Switch to a channel/conversation (jump to)
                            - Send a message
                            - Search in the team
                            - Switch between teams

                            Thanks

                              Tapping a link shared in Mattermost currently throws you out of the app and into Safari. I would be preferable to use Safari View Controller[1] to show the link inside the app.

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

                                A lot of our team members ask for this feature, as using iOS system emoji keyboard leads to ??? on other platforms. Would be really helpful to have an iOS 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.

                                  • Make visual indications of new messages more pronounced

                                    The current indication for the Mac client is a hardly distinguishable blue dot for the team and a hardly distinguishable whiter color for the channel. It's nice and muted, but I had to really look hard before I found what to look for for unread messages. I suggest a slightly more pronounced way of indicating unread messages for teams and channels.

                                    • Allow setting to enable message sending through 'Return'

                                      So I understand that in iOS version 3.3.0, there was a change to disable messages from being sent after pressing the 'Return' key.

                                      My team is coming from WhatsApp so the default is to send a message using the 'Return' key.

                                      I would suggest adding a configuration item that would allow users to make this change as it's really based on personal preference.

                                      Would fix: https://github.com/mattermost/ios/issues/39

                                      • The Apple Watch App disappears after recent updates

                                        This is one of my concerns when upgrading to a newer version

                                        • Highligh notification for each team per app

                                          Insert the opportunity to highlight the notifications of each team from the team selection menu. Currently it is not clear which team by the notification.
