  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Blacklist certain file types from being uploaded to Mattermost

    Sample use case: Block .exe files from being uploaded to prevent malicious executables from being downloaded.

    In addition to .exe, also interested in blocking PDF files and compressed files.

  5. 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…

  6. Method to get/export channel member list

    Sometimes it would be handy to export a list of channel members for example to form an emailing list or something. Can't find a way to do this either on UI or with commandline tools. Ideally it would be configurable to get Name or Email or both.

  8. Override "I forgot my password" for AD/LDAP Authentication

    When using AD/LDAP authentication for the Mattermost Enterprise server there is still an "I forgot my password" link. I suggest that you allow Administrators to override where that link points to. For example, I would like that link to point to my corporate password reset and unlock portal. And/or allow administrators to turn that link off. This could be a part of the "Custom Branding" options on the Enterprise version.

    You can remove the “forgot password link” by
    - setting “Enable sign-in with email” to false
    - setting “Enable sign-in with username” to false

    That said, we’ll keep this feature proposal open for customizing the “I forgot my password” link.

  9. Limit direct messages per User

    We would like the users to focus on channels. Although we do not want to disallow direct messaging at all.

    It would be amazing if we could set a direct message limit per day.

    For example: User X is allowed to send 20 direct messages per day, while User Y can send unlimited direct messages.

    With this feature we don't limit the users too much, but we also make sure that important information is held in the channels.

  10. 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.

  11. Add a system console option to hide the "Leave Team" button

    For instances that only use one team, the option to leave the team is not useful.

    Please add an option to the system console to hide the button or add a user permission for this function.
    The user permission would be the preferred way to handle this to be prepared for growing instances.

  12. Support for nosql database

    Considering the benefits of data analytics for such kind of apps, don't you think support for a nosql database would help. Also, if you want to scale it to a million users; will a rdbms solution support that?

  13. 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 UX so that…

  14. Enable omission of message snippets in email notifications

    For organizations with advanced compliance requirements, this feature should enable a System Administrator to omit the inclusion of message contents in email notifications.

  15. Allow Team Admins to see statistics for their Team

    Currently only System Admins can see individual team statistics information but it would be helpful to allow team admins to see their own team's statistics.

  16. 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.

  17. Access Control List for Web Interface & Mobile App

    We are a .org wishing to implement Mattermost.

    We would like only a specific group of "internal" users to be allowed to access the server from outside the firewall. In addition, we would also like a specific group of external clients to be able to access the server through the mobile app.

    I understand one method is to use a VPN. However, an additional app to put on someone's device may be a burden.

    The Novell/Micro Focus Product Webaccess has a feature that allows the admin to specify users via an .xml file.

    A snippet:

    "Controlling WebAccess Usage:

  19. New Channel Announcements

    When people create new channels within a team, it would be great to have a popup that shows team members within the channel a screen something like "New Channels created since your last visit, refresh, etc..."

    What we are finding is people are creating new channels within Teams, yet no one knows about them unless they click on the More link within the team.

  20. make administrators able to look into private chats

    In corporate environments it is sometimes necessary on legal grounds to check an employees communication. Usually the management asks the IT therefor to deliver ones communication. Currently an administrator is neither able to view the existing private chats from any user nor is there an export function to extract all users content from the database
