  1. Implement emoji picker for Android (same as already implemented for reactions)

    A lot of our team members ask for this feature, as using Android's system emoji keyboard leads to ??? on other platforms. Would be really helpful to have an Android emoji picker in the same style which is already implemented for reactions. The current system (typing : and emoji name) is not really working, especially for new team members.

  2. Add background color on BOT messages (by condition or log level)

    I just wonder that if MM could set background color for messages by condition.
    Like hipchat that bot messages could show with different color by info level:
    green => success
    yellow => warning
    red => failed

  3. Ability to Reply to Message with Webhook

    It would be awesome for us, when something like this could be achieved:

    I use a slash command in a thread (right side), the triggered post will include the parent message id.

    Add the parent message id to incoming webhooks. So I can reply to a thread with webhooks.

  4. deleted message notice

    Current behavior: when a user deletes a message, it's removed from the channel altogether.

    Requested behavior: when a user deletes a message, that message is replaced by "message deleted" as a status message (the same style as "user has joined the channel"). This could be implemented as default behavior, or as a setting.

    Reasoning: it can be important for the context of a conversation to see that one or more messages were deleted. A user might have responded to a message that has been deleted, which can change the meaning of the message.

  5. Add a /quote command

    Pasting a multi-paragraph block of text for quoting is currently frustrating, as you can't just type "> " and then paste and hit return, because if "\n\n" happens to exist in the block, it'll fall out of quote mode.

    Since we already have /code for code pastes (like HipChat), let's also go for /quote: you do "/quote <paste><enter>" and done.

    The implementation would be virtually identical to /code, just replace the 4 spaces with "> "

  6. Modify a user via CLI

    Would be nice to have the ability to update/modify a user via the CLI. Similarly to create user, you are able to set their name, email, etc. It would be nice to be able modify those details of an existing user via the CLI or even UI. I've found some user's end up entering their names all lower case or some don't even enter their details.

  7. Add user profiles and text boxes

    It would be great if there was a way to expand profiles to include boxes where users could host information. This might include: location, about me, skills, experience, links to external sites and portfolios, or active tasks engaged with. If there is already a way to do this it would be great to know. Thanks!

  8. channel profile images

    Support avatar icons for channels.

    it would be great if the service and apps provided a similar API and UX to allow profile images to be assigned and queried for a channel.
    This might work similarly to what is in place for users, where the Mattermost API supports getting a profile image for a user, except this request would provide profile image by channel.

  9. emoji reaction keyboard shortcut

    This was my most used shortcut in another messaging app that starts with an S and ends with an ack.

    Also to then be able to select emoji with arrow keys and enter is crucial. Would even go a step beyond if shift enter allowed you to pick more than one emoji reaction! #Mindblown

  10. Create an editable message ('wikipost')

    Our team documents project features by posting and re-editing posts. (They can then be flagged, or in future, made sticky, to keep them at hand.)

    What would be useful here is to make a post that I choose to allow others to edit, in a wiki or confluence-style.

  12. Support for the Slack Real Time Messaging (RTM) websocket API

    The RTM API allows integrations to connect to slack from behind a firewall, seemingly connecting much like a normal desktop client might, from any computer, not just an externally visible server.

    It's a very important enterprise feature for those wanting to integrate Mattermost with their internal applications.

    Further discussion on this can be found here:
    https://forum.mattermost.org/t/does-mattermost-support-real-time-messaging-api-from-slack/1287/2

    And this slack FAQ describes the differences between the Events and RTM API's:
    https://api.slack.com/faq#events_api

    This is the Slack RTM API spec:

  13. Restrict Direct Messages user list to the members of the currently viewed team

    The DM user list can be very crowded. My suggestion is to restrict this user list to the members of the team that is currently selected in the Teams Sidebar, just like the way public channel list is implemented.

    So the user list in the "Direct Messages" section will change when the user switches to a different team.

  14. Client for Ubuntu Touch

    Hello,
    as Ubuntu Touch (UT) is not dead. See https://ubports.com
    They are doing an awesome job getting UT going.

    I wanted to know if there is someone who wants to write a client for this OS :)

    Cheers.

  17. hide offline contacts

    It would be nice to have an option, that enables the user to hide contacts that are currently offline.
    This would mainly apply to the "direct messages".
    It is really annoying to search through a long list (~50) of contacts you often need to chat with, when about 50% are currently offline and are therefore of no interest at the moment.

  18. Remind me Later

    Slack offers a very cool possibility: you can ask the bot to remind you of a message after some time.

    This is extremely useful when you post a message which requires some reaction by some other users - if (unfortunately) no reaction comes, it is very easy to forget about the question, which will not happen if you set a reminder!

    That would be a very nice feature to add to mattermost

    Currently the web interface has no option to increase the font size. This is plainly silly. Please fix this ASAP.

  20. Host a repository for the mattermost-desktop Debian package

    It is nice to have a .deb package for mattermost-desktop, but it would be even easier to have a repository we can add to sources.list so the app can be easily updated.
