  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…

  2. 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.

  3. Allow for tighter spacing in the sidebar

    Currently tons of space is being wasted in the sidebar. Allow for tighter spacing of channel/user names so more of the list can be displayed at once.

  4. 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.

  5. Disable taskbar badge for specified channel(s), but keep channel name in bold for unread general messages

    In the notification preferences for a channel (probably under Mark Channel Unread), I'd like to have the ability to disable the application icon badge in the taskbar unless someone mentions me or the whole channel, while still keeping the channel name in bold for any general messages.

    That way, when I open the app, I can see which channels have general messages for me to catch up on (b/c the channel name will be in bold), but I don't get drawn to the app by taskbar icon badges for channels that I don't want to be notified about while I'm…

  6. 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.

  7. Add a file download progress bar

    You constantly need to check Explorer to see if file has finished downloaded or not, very bothersome. A progress bar / download indicator will be very helpful.

  8. Add support for Mattermost Custom URL scheme on macOS

    Hello,

    MacOS recently added support for custom URL schemes which allows other apps and browsers to open permalinks to content in the native app (rather than in the browser).

    The use case would be that when you get an email to a Mattermost permalink, and you click on it in Safari, it'll open in the Mattermost app rather than a new tab in Safari.

    The instructions to adopt custom URL schemes can be found here:

    https://developer.apple.com/documentation/uikit/core_app/allowing_apps_and_websites_to_link_to_your_content/defining_a_custom_url_scheme_for_your_app

    Thanks a lot for a great product!

  9. 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.

  10. Miniature (icon) Mugshot in leftmost Direct Messages pane, shown before name

    In the “Direct Messages” leftmost pane show a miniature mugshot, in addition to the persons name shown. The same mugshot /image as shown in message conversation list view.

    Sometimes the name is not know or remembered, but the face is not easily forgotten (unless your blind) and might be recognized, when initiating a conversation.

    My list contain about 100 developers, many with similarly sounding names and it would ease when trying to find the right developer.

    When having many contacts often the names becomes very similar i.e John A Smith, John B Smith, John C Smith.

    Which of those is…

  11. Parse channel search string to allow more powerful queries

    I use the channel switcher with Ctrl+K a lot. Recently I joined two groups that have some overlapping members:

    Group X has members aa, bb, me. Group Y has members aa, cc, me.

    Now, it is quite tedious to search for them efficiently. If I search for "bb" and "cc" I will hit direct messaging with either of the two. And if I search for "aa" it is even worse: I get the two groups, plus direct messaging.

    I suggest to allow for a search expressions as follows: "a b", "a c". I expect this to find group channels where…

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. Add badge for new messages that's visible in a pinned tab.

    When you've pinned a tab on your browser the badge that appears to show new messages within the client isn't visible. At best you have to hover to see a (*) that denotes new messages.

    There should be an immediately visible badge on a pinned tab for unread messages.

  18. Implement custom team shortnames

    Currently the team list shows the first two letters of the team name, if no custom icon is provided. It would be great if these two letters could be configured, so that they can be different from the first two letters of the team name.

  19. Include Racially Diverse Emojis

    Currently, all of the default emojis (people, hands, etc) on the desktop app have a light yellow skin tone. Since you are already using apple emojis, it would be awesome to integrate the ability to change the skin and hair tone of these emojis.

  20. 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.
