  1. Raspberry Pi 3 Model B (ARM 32/64)

    Raspberry Pi 3 Model B has a 64 Bit CPU as probably all small computers. However the OS still runs on 32 Bit.

    There should be:
    - ARM 32 Bit support
    - ARM 64 Bit support

  2. Open attached image in browser

    When trying to view attached images at their full resolution, having to save the image, find where you saved it, and then open it there is quite clunky.

    It would be better to open the attached image in a browser, users can right click save it from there, and it can easily be maximized there

  3. Allow adding custom words to user and/or team dictionaries.

    Words not in the stock dictionaries are always marked as errors; there's no way around it.

  4. Add a Message of the Day feature for each channel

    We have several teams at work and each channel in the team has a specific purpose. It would be ideal if we could set a time at which a recurring message of the day would be posted. We would include links to resources for the team as well as recent news for people who have been out of the office and are returning.

    It would be like an extension to the header and purpose sections. Ideally tagging people would work such that some of the messages can act as daily reminders to everyone of the schedule.

  5. Share pictures from the app

    It would be nice if pressing and holding a picture for a few seconds in the chat window would let you share it to other apps. Right now in the React app pressing on a picture in a chat will make it light up a bit, but there's no prompt to do anything with the picture. Also it seems that there's no way to share pictures from within the app in general.

    The only other OSS chat app I've found that allows this so far is rocket.chat (but only on their old Cordova app).

  6. Override "I forgot my password" for AD/LDAP Authentication

    When using AD/LDAP authentication for the Mattermost Enterprise server there is still an "I forgot my password" link. I suggest that you allow Administrators to override where that link points to. For example, I would like that link to point to my corporate password reset and unlock portal. And/or allow administrators to turn that link off. This could be a part of the "Custom Branding" options on the Enterprise version.

    You can remove the “forgot password link” by
    - setting “Enable sign-in with email” to false
    - setting “Enable sign-in with username” to false

    That said, we’ll keep this feature proposal open for customizing the “I forgot my password” link.

  7. Allow mattermost inside an iframe, in a controlled way

    This pull request introduced a security measure to protect against clicjacking attacks: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/pull/253

    But it also prevents some legitimate uses of iframes. For example, Nextcloud has a "external sites" function to run any app as if it was a Nextcloud app, by putting it in an iframe inside Nextcloud (https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/9/admin_manual/configuration_server/external_sites.html).

    My proposal is to add some settings to allow an authorized domain, and then change X-Frame-Options, instead of DENY put ALLOW-FROM this domain. And to check the domain also in the javascript check in head.html.

    This way it would allow legitimate uses, while still protecting against clickjacking attacks.

  8. Remove team name restriction

    Please remove the restriction for team names, because our company name starts with a number and we would like to have our first team to be named like our company name (name and URL).

    This seems to be possible in the "GitLab Mattemost Team Edition" but not in the "Mattermost Enterprise Edition".

  9. Limit direct messages per User

    We would like the users to focus on channels. Although we do not want to disallow direct messaging at all.

    It would be amazing if we could set a direct message limit per day.

    For example: User X is allowed to send 20 direct messages per day, while User Y can send unlimited direct messages.

    With this feature we don't limit the users too much, but we also make sure that important information is held in the channels.

  10. collapse [-] PUBLIC CHANNELS

    We use the favorite channels and direct messages, and therefore would like to collapse the public channels. Then channels with unread messages would only be shown.

    [-] PUBLIC CHANNELS +
    0 Project X (2)
    0 Project Y
    0 Project Z

    [+] PUBLIC CHANNELS +

  12. resize image upload

    Fist important use of mattermost is sharing picture.
    We need to upload a smarphone picture with a good resize for not explode server hard drive. (picture management is not easy with history)

    For example when we upload a picture, a menu ask:
    Choose size upload:
    - original size (~4mB)
    - full hd (800 kB)
    - 1024px (200 kB)
    (we can use mozjpeg lib)

    Resize coulb be on the sever or on the app, but it's necessary.

    This feature is not on slack and i don't understand WHY.

  13. Add support for SQL Server

    Most enterprises medium or larger have SQL Server licenses and supporting infrastructure (DBA team, servers, backup/recovery scripts, etc.) already established.

    Support for SQL Server would be very helpful so we can leverage what we have in-house already.

  15. send message later

    I'd find it realy useful to be able to send a message later at a given date and time (e.g. like Buffer).
    Often, I'd find some useful or interesting info I want to post to the team chat at off-hours, and the message could either be overlooked because the timestamp will be quite old during work hours, or I'd disturb team members who have hot keywords defined and get notified automatically.

  16. User folders sorted by department or server group

    I got asked by a colleague if it is possible to sort the Users because he had about 60+ Users in the Direct Messages section.

    It would be nice if you can sort it by a specified department (or Position) or that you can create User groups (with specific permissions for example) and that they get sorted in categories like this.

    An other way could be that everyone can create custom folders with users in it and can expand it if needed.

  17. Add a system console option to hide the "Leave Team" button

    For instances that only use one team, the option to leave the team is not useful.

    Please add an option to the system console to hide the button or add a user permission for this function.
    The user permission would be the preferred way to handle this to be prepared for growing instances.

  18. Visual effect to separate private chats from channels

    I'd like to somehow tune the color scheme of the Mattermost to separate private chats from channels. First idea that I got my mind is that maybe there could be an option to set a different background color for private conversations?

  19. allow personal access tokens for all users

    Currently non-admins cannot create personal access tokens unless they ask an admin to enable personal access tokens for them. Considering that any user could already go through the SSO flow or use username+password depending on the setup to get a token for the API, there should be a config option to allow everyone to create personal access tokens by default.

  20. Add a configurable setting to show count of unread messages, mentions or channels on taskbar

    Original discussion can be found here: https://github.com/mattermost/desktop/issues/111

    Add a configurable setting to show count of unread messages, mentions or channels on taskbar.

    When a message is received, there is small red badge with number of total unread mentions (in the client taskbar icon and the browser tab).

    Proposal is to let the user choose what to count on this badge - any messages, mention and direct messages only or even number of channels with unread messages
