  1. Allow selecting and deleting multiple messages at once

    Allow Channel Admins to be able to enter "select" or "edit" mode where checkboxes appear next to the messages.
    Admins would be able to select messages one by one or to select a range of messages by clicking the first one, holding Shift button and selecting the last one (like we've used from other software).

    After selecting multiple messages, Admins would be able to delete them at once, or perform any other action that might be implemented during the development (move, archive, flag, something else).

    This feature would make it a lot easier to delete whole bunches of off-topic messages…

    • Make emoji replacement a separate option from the rest of post formatting

      I consider it unacceptable that I can't choose to disable having my words replaced with emoji, without also having to give up on EVERY SINGLE post formatting feature. I want to be able to use post formatting, just NOT have any emoji appear without me explicitly choosing to insert them.

      • Show nicknames on each line while in compact mode

        There should be an option to show the nickname on each line, when using compact mode. As a long-time IRC user, I expect to have the name repeated on each line.
        This is specially annoying when the "New Messages" marker shows, where it should ALWAYS show the name in the line following the marker.

        • Ability to disable rendering of animated emoji, or to hide posts, to improve performance

          The problem I am having is that in some channels when users are using tons of animated emojis, I am seeing my CPU sit at >=30%. If I then switch to a more static channel, the CPU usage drops off the top of the list.

          The feature I would love is to either:
          * Have the ability to disable the rendering of animated emojis (or gifs?)
          * Or to have the ability to hide posts

          Currently I have to make sure never to leave a heavy animated channel as my active channel.

          • Improve the UX of the very first screen

            The first impressions of an app are critical. This is the screenshot that I have when I have first installed the Matermost desktop client on Ubuntu. I think it will be the same for all platforms:

            https://imgur.com/a/HY7FxOv

            Almost everything on this screen is unfriendly to a new user especially a non-technical user.

            # 1. The title

            It just says: 'Add Server'. Nothing like 'Hi!' or 'Welcome to Mattermost!' or anything that displays some kind of enthusiasm for welcoming the user. This is where Slack shines - friendly, quirky (perhaps later annoying) messages.

            # 2. Server Display Name

            Even as a…

            • Enable different spellchecking languages for each server

              I switch between a German and English server a lot and one of them always has all of my messages underlined red, so being able to set the language on a per server basis would be great!

                • Linux desktop app: start hidden in tray without creating window itself

                  Instead of creating the application and minimizing it application start must be done without creating window itself.

                  Lack of this option I have discussed here https://forum.mattermost.org/t/solved-linux-mattermost-desktop-start-minimized-from-command-line/6321/18

                  • zoom inside picture

                    Hello,
                    I think it could be a really good idea to have the possibility to zoom inside shared picture. Sometimes it's too small, we need to download it and then zoom inside it.

                    thanks

                    • Add shortcut to close current channel/direct chat

                      Hello!

                      It would be great to have a shortcut to close current channel or direct chat.

                      It could be CTRL+F4 or CTRL+W.

                      • add or remove people from a group message

                        Sometimes, you start a Group Message and realize later that you need to add a new person to the conversation, or remove someone from the conversation.

                        Currently, there is no way to add/remove someone from a conversation. A new Group conversation has to be started, but all of the previous discussion details are lost, or have to be copied and pasted, one at a time, into a new Group conversation.

                        Please add the ability to add/remove people to/from an existing Group Message.

                        • Add notification timeout option

                          I've seen other thing saying there is a timeout option for notifications but I'm not seeing one in the Linux desktop app. Should it be there? If not, I'd really like a way to make the notifications to be persistent until I interact with them or Mattermost.

                            • Inline webm viewer

                              Show webm (and maybe mp4 as well if supported compression like x264) inline instead of having to click on the download button to view it. The video can already be played inside the mattermost app, but not inline. Right now our users use unnecessary large gifs to share animations because they work inline in the chat window.

                                Thoughts?

                                    On macOS, Desktop Notifications can offer a "Reply" Button in order to allow a user to answer to a message right from the received notification, which is very handy. I wish to have this feature in the Mattermost Desktop app as some of my users have used Hipchat before and they complain this feature is not available in Mattermost.

                                    • CMD/CTRL+number should switch teams

                                      Hitting CMD+1 should select the first team, CMD+2 should select the next etc. (I guess this translates to ctrl on Linux / Windows).

                                      Right now its a lot of mouse movement to switch between teams.

                                      • CMD/CTRL+K should allow to switch to conversation from other team

                                        When you are part of two or more team and you have unread channel in another team you've currently selected, you can not switch to it with CMD/CTRL+K. Since there is no keyboard shortcut to switch team (already discussed in various place), this would be nice to display the conversation from the other team in the conversation selection popup!

                                        • Group description should have multiple lines to see more details

                                          Description of groups should revert back to 2 line or be customizable. Currently I see only first 2 letters of each group name which si useless
