  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. allow users to add reactions to room join/leave announcements.

    Adding reactions on channel join/leave announcements is hilarious in Slack. Please add this.

  4. Unread message notifier in launcher icon in Linux

    On Ubuntu 19.04, the mattermost desktop client does not indicate unread messages in the launcher (I mean adding a little pop-up symbol to the icon as shown in this post about Windows #194).

    I don't know if that is intended (no comparison on other systems). For thunderbird a similar thing exists, but I wouldn't know how to implement right away. I suggest a permanent "red dot" indicating new messages, or optionally a counter.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Have the ability to jump directly to the first message in a channel

    When a user needs to scroll up through a lot of history, it can take a lot of time and effort. It would be much better if there was a button or ability letting users to jump directly to the first message in a channel.

  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. 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!

  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 fairly technical…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Date and Channel Name

    When we type a message it shows time but not shows date. Please add date with time and if possible also add channel name with time and date.

    We copy the message for our reference. It would be more helpfull if Date and channel name added with time.

  19. Include of preview of message in each notification

    Please add setting of notifications 'Include of preview of message in each notification'. This option is needed for personal data protection when you screen sharing with any application like skype.
    On one of your site webpages it says that "Mattermost offers alternative ... to Slack’s SaaS-only workplace messaging service". In Slack's this option exists in Notifications settings.

  20. 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!
