  1. Add ability to convert DMs into private channels

    This is a really useful feature in Slack when you realize a topic deserves a dedicated channel, but want the DM history to become a part of it:

  2. Support ip and mac text search

    The docs explains that:

    "IP addresses, for example 10.100.200.101, do not return results."
    (https://docs.mattermost.com/help/getting-started/searching.html#hashtags)

    I would like to be able to search on ip-strings from my messages.

  3. Better Upgrade Notification for Old Desktop App

    As of now, we do not have a clear warning message to indicate that a desktop client has compatibility issue (old version) with the latest Mattermost Server version.

    it will be a good idea to have a message (pop up) that detects the desktop client version and remind them to upgrade it to the latest version if it is at least 1.x version behind the current one.

  4. Enable the click on a file link

    Clicking on a file:// link does not work for local folders. On Desktop, it doesn't do anything. On Firefox, it opens a blank page.

    Apparently, this is intentional as explained by @yuya-oc because:
    - Accepting local resources would allow to execute programs via malicious link
    - There is no situation where an user would want to share their local files without attached files.

    In my usecase, we use Nextcloud to sync files within our group. And we have the same letter and path for local files. This is why we often share the file path instead of the file itself,…

  5. Plugin hook for channel header, title and purpose change.

    I would like to add a string to the header and purpose every time it is changed via a plugin, but this is currently not possible as there is no hook for channel metadata in the plugin API.

  6. Show the connection status instead of just providing an error message

    When the client goes offline, which is common when laptops suspend or for corporate implementations where a VPN is required to access the server, the only feedback provided is that the server can't be reached and to get help. This is not only not an appropriate message in this case but the message stays on the screen even after the connection is re-established. Instead of showing a disconnection message I propose replacing it with a connection state indicator. Ideally when the client is offline it will obvious (like changing the color of the window) but I won't be able to…

  7. Option to disable spell checking

    Currently, spell checking is always enabled and cannot be disabled.

    To some users, the red underlining is visually distracting. Also, the spell checker is currently unable to detect on-the-fly, in-sentence language switching, which is sometimes used in mixed-language teams or when discussing mixed-language subjects (like programming).

    Therefore, I'd like to suggest adding an option to permanently disable spell checking - either in the configuration, or, in the input bar's context menu, where the spell check language is usually selected.

    In the input bar it could look like this:

  8. System Administrator: Ability to Import Users via CSV / Excel File

    While system administrator are limited to only have the following methods to create / import users:
    * Local users: mattermost user create CLI, direct invite, team invite link
    * External users: LDAP / AD / SAML

    It will be good to have the ability to use CSV or Excel file to bulk import the users with specific formatting especially if the organization has a lot of customers and is not utilizing AD / LDAP / SSO.

  9. Enable automatic account deprovisioning for SAML

    As per the documentation : https://docs.mattermost.com/deployment/sso-saml.html#saml-single-sign-on-e20 SAML currently does not support automatic deprovisioning, and is only possible if AD/LDAP sync is enabled.

    For environments where AD/LDAP is not possible, it would be great if SAML could also automatically deprovision users from Mattermost as well.

  11. Make emoji replacement a separate option from the rest of post formatting

    I consider it unacceptable that I can't choose to disable having my words replaced with emoji, without also having to give up on EVERY SINGLE post formatting feature. I want to be able to use post formatting, just NOT have any emoji appear without me explicitly choosing to insert them.

  12. Allow bot accounts to create webhooks

    It'd be great if in the integrations you could assign a bot account ownership of a webhook.

  14. Quote Reply In Threads

    In a thread, because we cant create subthreads, the comment menu should have a new item called "quote reply".

    "Quote Reply" should allow the user to add a new comment with reference from the comment he is replying.

    A : I like cars.
    A : Wanna go for pizza? <-- "Quote Reply"
    B : I like Ferrari.
    B : "Wanna go for pizza?"
    Yes. Pizza is a great idea.

  17. have a channel preference to have a badge for new messages in a channel like direct messages

    Something like "subscribing" to a channel, where when anyone posts in the channel, you get a direct message badge that behaves like they @'ed you for every message.

    Example:
    UserA: hi
    UserB: sup

    Windows icon on taskbar: red (2)

  18. Directory of public channels/channels I can have access to

    A user should be able to easily see & search the list of all channels they have joined and can join. I'm seeing a number of duplicate channels created across teams because the user did not know it existed in another location.

  19. Distribute Mattermost Desktop via the Mac App Store

    Hi,
    Since the Mattermost Desktop client does not include an auto-updater and the iOS version is already distributed on the App Store, why don't you distribute the mac client on the Mac App Store.

    This would solve the updating problem and also make the app easier to discover. The download page is pretty hidden on the mattermost website, I always end up on the server download page when I only want to check for update.
