  1. Change users presence monitoring for desktop app and mobile

    It appears that mattermost will mark a user as Away while they're still actively working on their computers. I suggest an option to allow a users status to be shown as "Online" while they're logged into their computer. Just because a user doesn't have the app in focus doesn't mean they're not available.

    Also, is it possible to show users who are logged in from a mobile device as active on mobile? Hipchat had this feature. Currently Mattermost marks users as offline even if a user is available on their mobile device.

        • Default email domain for LDAP users

          There should be a option for default email domain for LDAP users.

          Use case: large organizations often have multiple object trees, and some might not contain the users email address explicitly. In some cases you might have a default email domain for all users (example.com) in addition to their unit-specific (unit.example.com) domains.

          For more dynamic settings like a Django settings.py you might to able to specify that the email address of an users is their uid + the default email domain of your organization, but when that's not the case you instead relay on the settings being provided to you,…

            • Add custom user groups for mentions

              Add custom user groups for mentions. Something like @developers or @Analysts to mention all members of group in this channel. Also it would be useful for large teams, when novices does not know who is who - with this feature they can determinate at least group

                Our users find it very useful to be able to share screenshots, etc. but we'd like to prevent them transferring any other file types.

                Please add the ability to allow/block certain file types.

                  • Restore a deleted channel

                    We would like to be able to restore deleted channels. One of which this can be done is to have a trash box of all deleted channels, of which we can restore back to in case we would like to reopen it.

                      • search in bots' messages

                        We use MM EE integrate with GitLab EE, so "bots" from GitLab post issues / comments / merge requests to our channels. Today I discovered that MM Search feature does not search (or index?) messages send by such bots as it does not consider them as char participants (from: autocomplete does not offer bots' names, only humans). Is there a setting affecting this or it's by design? Thank you.

                        • allow admins to set the default channels when a member joins

                          It was nice in Slack to say for the batch of invitees that have been recently invited that they be thrown into channels x, y, z instead of having to manually Add Member to varying channels or ask them to seek out channels and add themselves.

                          • Adding users to group DM should provide an option to keep history

                            When you have a multi user direct message and you add new members (as a conversation grows to need more people) you end up creating a new DM with no history. Instead mattermost should provide an option to keep the history available.

                            • Add GPG signed and encrypted notifications (end to end)

                              As administrator I want to restrict notification messages sent from my self-hosted mattermost server to be GPG signed and encrypted.

                              That means, if a user hasn't uploaded a GPG public key to his account, notifications sent to him only contain some metadata or nothing at all.
                              If a user has uploaded a GPG public key, then the notification message is encrypted for him as receiver, so only he can read it.
                              The notification message shall be signed in any case with the private key that I configured in my mattermost server.

                              Motivation: transport layer security between the mattermost server and…

                              • User folders sorted by department or server group

                                I got asked by a colleague if it is possible to sort the Users because he had about 60+ Users in the Direct Messages section.

                                It would be nice if you can sort it by a specified department (or Position) or that you can create User groups (with specific permissions for example) and that they get sorted in categories like this.

                                An other way could be that everyone can create custom folders with users in it and can expand it if needed.

                                  • Add write policy for channels and private groups

                                    This feature is essentially a "force mute" in a meeting room, when you want to enable some people to listen in, but not to speak.

                                    - Add an option to restrict the ability to post to a channel or private group (requires channel header menu redesign--the menu is over the UX guideline of 5-7 options per menu)
                                    - Add the ability to define users who have the ability to post, which would by default include Team Admins. We don't currently have UX for a channel owner or channel creator, but in future Enterprise releases this may be added
                                    - Include…

                                      • EE: Single-Channel Guests for non-team members

                                        For IT policy compliance, offer the ability to invite non-team members users to Mattermost as "single-channel guests" to have access to read and write to one channel and direct message any other users in that channel.

                                        Potential scenarios include opening discussions with non-team members, including customers, vendors, partners and interview candidates.
