  1. Hotlink preview for uploaded image instead of thumbnail

    When uploading images it will be nice to have a preview features (like when entering an image through a link) instead of the current generated thumbnail which is not very representative of the image. This is somehow how Slack is showing uploaded image.

  2. open the emoji picker with typing ":", followed by pressing Tab

    I'd really like to see the emoji picker that can be activated as described in the title, instead of the ":" followed by minimum of 2 characters as it is at the moment.
    I'm aware of the full picker ticket https://mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/PLT-2354, but as i understand it doesn't include this feature.

  3. Make switch channel more intuitive

    If I open the switch channel dialog and begin to type the beginning of a name for which several entries exist, then this list is ordered alphabetically and does not take into account open chats with people.

    This feature is only useful if you want to speed up navigation. I expect the dialog to show open chats before others so you dont have to navigate in the list to select the correct entry.

  4. Slash commands progress indicator

    Mattermost should have a way of showing that a slash command was executed, and awaiting response. At the moment you have no way of knowing if your command was sent out or not until a potential response arrives. For slow services this is raither tedious as you begin doubting if the message was sent or not, and might end up sending it multiple times.

  6. Open channels and direct messages in different windows (Desktop apps)

    Right now we use Mattemost for communication about projects and Spark/Jabber/XMPP for direct messages. The reason we prefer Spark over Mattermost is that we can have each communication in a different app window and that makes it easier if you communicate with more people at once. Typical use case is that you send a question to your colleague and keep the window open until you get the answer.

  7. Use AppData/Local for cached data on Windows

    For Windows all local Mattermost data is stored inside of %APPDATA% (AppData/Roaming).
    This directory syncs between computers on every login / logout in certain corporate environments.

    Cache data should be placed inside AppData/Local.

  8. Use correct typographical symbols for all user-facing strings such as curly quotes for apostrophes (‘’) and quotes (“”)

    Use correct typographical symbols for all user-facing strings such as curly quotes for apostrophes (‘’) and quotes (“”).

    You should also avoid other typographical mistakes like n-dashes (–) and ellipsis (…) characters.

    See this thread for more details: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/4921#issue-198207996

  9. Add ability to send permalinks via email/sms

    The ability to generate and copy permalinks is great, but it would be awesome if there was an ability to share that URL, so that standard iOS share sheets, or Android intents, could be used to send urls via Gmail, iMessage, etc. Would make it much easier to integrate into our workflow.

  10. Render uploaded .md markdown files in preview window

    I would like Mattermost to render uploaded .md files as html rendered rather than as a plain text file.

    Currently they display as a text file and if its a long line of text you have to scroll to read it all.

  11. town square

    In a large organization the "Town Square" channel can be full of annoying non-work-related junk (e.g., zealots arguing over the merits of Ayn Rand's collective works). I should be able to exit the "Town Square" like any other channel. Likewise, I should be able to re-add "Town Square" if I so choose. Alternatively, administrators should be able to restrict posting to "Town Square" to administrators.

  12. Treat post selection as a reply

    It is a constant struggle to keep all relevant messages associated to a thread. People don't see the reply icon or understand its significance. I'm not sure how to best solve that whole problem, but it'd help to make the concept of a reply more prominent if selecting a post is the equivalent of clicking the arrow icon.

  14. Image preview: size lightbox on image width and not height

    Lightbox on image preview have a scrolling bar, but I'm pretty sure that CSS on image lightbox mentionned height:auto

    So we can't preview a long image.
    Exemple:
    cf. http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/133107mattermostpreview.png

  15. Allow Mattermost Zapier app posts to contain PDF attachments

    Currently Mattermost doesn't support file attachments in Zapier posts, This can be useful when using the Zapier app to generate automated posts containing PDF files.

    This feature is also supported by HipChat and Slack, so it would be nice to see Mattermost support it as well.

  19. Custom tutorial text

    Enable the setting of custom tutorial text for the three tutorial intro screens, with markdown formatting support and preview of the messages to be sent.

    As a secondary priority, enable the setting of different messages based on the preferences of the end user, defaulting to English if no message is set.

    Requesting this because often organizations want to share more about the purpose of their Mattermost deployment, and include different links, e.g. link to naming conventions to use for channels, an internal user's guide to the key features in the system intended to be used, perhaps a video introduction from…

  20. copy existing mattermost token to other teams

    Currently there are many integrations via webhook / slash commands that need a specific token to be set up in the configuration.

    if you want to use the same slash command for several teams its not possible without updating the database manually with the same token you used before in another team.

    the best option would be something like a seperate option to set the generated token id manually, so its possible to use 1 token for 1 integration for all teams that are created in mattermost.

    Did the same manually in the mattermost database, by selecting the commands table…
