  1. provide system token authentication

    We run a couple of scripts that access the Mattermost API, e.g. a script that posts a message to all Town Squares in all teams on our server and a script that creates user accounts (as we allow email login but disable email account creation so that we can control who creates accounts on the server). Right now we have the personal auth token of an administrator hardcoded in the scripts, but obviously this is suboptimal in case the administrator leaves the company, and messages appear to be sent from said administrator.

    Therefore it would be great if administrators could…

  2. Read-only for external clients

    It would be great to send secure links of an private channel to a client for status updates.

    What i want to do is:
    I want to start a new channel and write status updates or some information about the progress of an project.
    External clients should be able to view this channel only and see what has been posted und get current state if they want.
    But they should not be forced to register a new account. (Read/view only).

  3. Restore a deleted channel

    We would like to be able to restore deleted channels. One of which this can be done is to have a trash box of all deleted channels, of which we can restore back to in case we would like to reopen it.

  4. List accepted (and not yet ones) invitations

    Keep track to whom accepted invitation and those who didn't yet.
    When you send invitations to many people, you can't know for sure who actually accepted so you may want to resend invitations to your list of contacts (and again… And again…).

  5. Outgoing Webhooks triggered by regex or simple pattern

    At the moment its only possible to trigger Outgoing Webhooks if you set a channel and/or set a keyword or a string with keyword.

    if would be great if we can have a trigger for (perl) regex and for Character occur in text.

    So its possible to check for #123 and trigger a webhook to get information from ex. openproject.

    If I understand it correctly there are not so many things to change.
    Add the options here
    https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/8491ba5740e2d9942b2612ce06aef90bb10ad4c0/app/webhook.go#L52-L65

    And on the management page.

  7. Blacklist certain file types from being uploaded to Mattermost

    Sample use case: Block .exe files from being uploaded to prevent malicious executables from being downloaded.

    In addition to .exe, also interested in blocking PDF files and compressed files.

  8. Map Lync/Skype for Business user presence to Mattermost

    Hi,

    We use Lync/Skype for Business as the primary communications tool at my company, but for small project/team communications we use a self-hosted Mattermost server, because it's obviously 9000 times better than SFB.

    However, Mattermost (especially the desktop client) does not integrate very well with Windows regarding the user's presence.

    Short Scenario:
    If I lock my computer, SFB immediately sets my presence to Away, meanwhile Mattermost doesn't.

    On the other way around, if I minimize the Mattermost Desktop client to the tray, and I have an other application running on full-screen, after a short period, Mattermost goes to mark…

  9. Notifications for replies in threads, and ability to follow/unfollow threads (like slack)

    I wish there was a notification setting like in slack to enable the setting "Notify me about replies to threads I'm following"... and then the ability to opt-out of following threads (but following them is automatic for any threads that you start or comment on)

  10. Unsubscribe from email notifications directly from the email

    Currently when you receive an email notification, you cannot unsubscribe from the notifications directly from the email. Instead, you must log in, then go to Account Settings > Notifications to turn them off.

    Propose providing a link in the email which allows you to unsubscribe from the notifications without logging in, similar to Discourse.

  11. Status over name (Working locations)

    something which i liked about Slack was you could put a 'status' which would appear by hovering over someone's name. I and a lot of others used to put their locations for the week which was quite useful.

  12. Integrate mattermost with asterisk

    I wish I could somehow have someone use an asterisk pbx and integrate it with asterisk. This way, if I click on a user, and they are available OK their soft phone installed on their mobile which connected to the asterisk pbx, I could call them. If they are already on their computer, I believe the latest version of mattermost would allow me to speak to them via chrome (webrtc). However, it would be nice to integrate an open source pbx with mattermost.

  14. Warning message for all posts in Town Square

    There are a lot of discussions about what to do with Town Square if there are lots of users. (we have 450+ users there)
    It is always new users that land in Town Square and post some random test question or say hi or something. Not aware that they are addressing 450+ people. (despite the header clearly stating that and numerous posts in Town Square about the issue).

    A simple solution that could be implemented very easily (I guess) would be to get a popup similar to @channel for all posts in Town Square that raises awareness.

    This proposal relates…

  17. Login with QR code

    I have a very long password and I would like to keep it. To make it easier to login on the phone it would be great if a QR is code shown on the computer which I can scan. (Where I am already logged into Mattermost.) Similar to Whatsapp where you login like this on the computer.

  20. Allow consecutive emoji's in the Emoji Picker

    When typing a message, sometimes I want to insert consecutive emoji's. Instead of typing them manually, I would rather use the Emoji Picker. However, as soon as I click on an emoji to insert it, the Emoji Picker closes. I think it would be really nice if there was a way, like holding the Shift key, to keep it open so that I can insert other emoji's in a row.
