  1. Pause GIFs in background

    It would reduce resource usage and distraction if mattermost (like e.g. telegram) would pause GIF playbacks while the app is in background.

  2. Sort joinable public channels by activity

    When there are many public channels to join, many are defunct. New users cannot distinguish these from active channels in the More Channels modal. It would be nice to see the most active channels first, see some measure of how active each is, and perhaps see how many people are in each channel.

  3. Expand image previews in Compact Message Display mode

    I would like to be able to see a preview of the attached image even if I am in Compact Message Display Mode.
    Currently, even if the Account Settings > Display > Default appearance of image previews is set to Expanded, the image is only displayed as an attachment icon when Account Settings > Display > Message Display is set to Compact. These two settings should work independently of each other.

  5. Support preview of HEIF / HEIC images

    Modern smartphones, iOS and Android based, save photos in HEIC instead of JPEG.

    As of now, there's no preview support for HEIC encoded images. When people post photos taken on their smartphones, users currently have to download the photo to see it.

    Therefore I suggest adding support of HEIC to the image previews feature.

  6. Make team switch shortcut configurable

    Please, make the keyboard shortcut CTRL+ALT+number for switching teams configurable.

    Since the update, which brought this feature earlier this year, I'm unable to use the Mattermost Windows app, because I'm using czech programmers keyboard, which uses CTRL+ALT+numbers to type czech characters.
    Typing is automatic process and it's not really possible to avoid typing czech characters this way. It's not a solution to re-learn typing because of Mattermost or switching keyboards before typing.

  7. Quick Markdown insert

    Multiple ways to implement this :


    • Select a word, then right-click and chose a formatting option (bold, italic, code, etc)

    • Select a word and like in Office apps chose formatting options in a toolbar

    • Add keyboard shortcuts to add a specific markdown

    • Add most used markdowns under the input and make them clickable to insert them

    • Add an icon to add markdown (like the Emoji icon)

  8. Have a button which takes you to the next (oldest) unread message.

    If you have a lot of channels (some of which may be off the screen), it may useful to have a 'Next Unread' button which jumps you to the earliest unread message.

  9. Chronological message stream over all channels

    Sometimes I read a message in one channel, get desturbed and get more messages in other channels. Later I want to go back to the first message, but cannot remember/find the channel anymore. In this case it would be handy to have a view of all messages from all channels in chronological order.

  10. Move the (edited) indicator on the same line as the edited text

    I propose that the "(edited)" indicator is moved to the same line of the text that got edited. This is also how it is done in the Android app (and in Slack). Currently, in the Linux application (within Rambox), a new line is created just to show the "(edited)" indicator. I think this is a waste of space.

    I think the fix is easy. The indicator got introduced here: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/pull/4923/files#diff-aba2376d04d1b8049e404bf2685c887fR91

    So this has to be changed to not make a newline but instead put the indicator right after the rendered text.

  11. Automatic update for desktop client

    The Mattermost desktop client should automatically check for updates and prompt the user to update. This feature is mandatory in today's security landscape, even for an Electron app.

    Most of our users don't realize their desktop is many version out of date, with pending security fixes.

    Bonus points for shipping builds via the Windows Store, macOS App Store, snapcraft, etc.

  12. "Next unread channel" keyboard shortcut should jump to unread in next Team if no unread in current team

    Currently, you can use the "Next Unread channel" shortcut in the apps (e.g. Alt + Shift + Down) to jump to the next unread channel. If there are no more unread channels in the current team, but the next team in your team list has unreads, then the shortcut should jump to that team and the first unread channel there.

  16. Unread count location in GUI

    Unread count should be displayed on the far left of each channel.

    As it sits today, the count is on the far right. For channels with long names or multiple members, you can't actually see the unread count, which makes it useless. In addition, just bolding the channel name is not very easy to see/discern.

  17. Snooze for channel notifications

    I don't want to miss when my team is posting comments on our channel but I also don't want to be be notified every few seconds when things pick up. It would be nice if I could receive a notification and am then aware things being said but I could go in and select a snooze option. Then for the next 15 minutes I don't get distracted for every posting and can choose where my attention is.

  18. Option to use the OS window borders

    The new mattermost desktop app use a custom window border.
    But this does not always meet user expectations, especially under KDE I can freely configure the border.

    In my case, I have the close button on the left side (like MacOS) and no minimize / maximize buttons.

    I know from some apps (e.g. Chrome) that there is an option to use the framework of the OS.

  20. Have less subtle new message alerts in the Notification Area

    So i have the MatterMost app on Windows. I dislike clutter on my taskbar and having too many windows open, so I have it minimised to a notification area icon most of the time.

    The notification area icon looks nice, it's little a white circle inside a circle, and the colour and design matches various other Windows 10 taskbar icons. Very neat and tidy.

    However, I think that this aesthetic is not as important as knowing that I have a new message.

    Currently when I get a new message and Mattermost is minimised to notification area, a small red dot…
