  1. Automatically restart Mattermost after upgrade if it was already running (MSI)

    When updating existing installations of Mattermost with the MSI, the desktop app should automatically restart if it was running when the installation started. At the very least, the installer option that starts Mattermost after installation should be exposed as a public property, so it can be set as a switch when installing with msiexec.

    Currently, the MSI kills the process but it doesn't restart when running with the /qn switch.

  2. Distribute Mattermost Desktop via the Mac App Store

    Hi,
    Since the Mattermost Desktop client does not include an auto-updater and the iOS version is already distributed on the App Store, why don't you distribute the mac client on the Mac App Store.

    This would solve the updating problem and also make the app easier to discover. The download page is pretty hidden on the mattermost website, I always end up on the server download page when I only want to check for update.

  3. File upload - Opens a modal where user can enter message to be displayed along with image.

    File upload should trigger a modal to be shown in which user can add more files and also enter corresponding text against the image upload.
    I would like to help in implementing this feature.

  4. 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.

  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…

  8. Interface changes for view users present in channel and their status

    We all know that the Mattermost interface shows the Channel names in the left sidebar. We have been thinking that the users in that channel should be listed in the left sidebar under that particular channel name with an Expand/Collapse icon/button. If we expand, we should know the user’s status as offline/available, etc.

  10. have system tray icon indicate when not logged in

    The system tray icon is white when I am caught up on reading. It turns amber or red when I have messages to read or direct messages. But it was white all morning. I was curious why everyone was so quiet, but didn't look. Then I went to direct message someone and saw I wasn't even logged in.

    Feature suggestion: system tray icon indicate when not logged in.

  11. Make the hosting application detect the white-window crash state, and automatically reload.

    Summary

    We apparenlty have a server issue causing the Mattermost window to go white with no activity on my behalf. View->Refresh recovers it, but how come I have to do that manually?

    Steps to reproduce

    version 4.2.0 on Linux.


    1. Log in and leave it until it goes white - roughly once or twice most days, some days not at all.

    Expected behavior

    It should detect that it's gone white, create some log bundle for creating issues here, and then refresh itself (with perhaps exponential throttling so it doesn't end up in a wild refresh loop if things are really wrong…

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  16. Make the loading screen match the user's theme colour.

    Hi!

    At the moment, no matter which theme you have selected (dark, light), the startup / loading screen is white with blue logo.

    My eyes adapt slowly to such strong shifts in brightness, and I would love it if would respect my preferences and be dark if a dark theme was selected.


    I posted this as an issue on GIthub, but was asked to move it here: https://github.com/mattermost/desktop/issues/985

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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/coreapp/allowingappsandwebsitestolinktoyourcontent/definingacustomurlschemeforyourapp

    Thanks a lot for a great product!
