  1. Add option to wrap text in code-blocks when using syntax highlighting

    Add option to wrap text in code-blocks when using syntax highlighting.

    Currently, if you use code-blocks like so:

    some very long text .....

    It will wrap as expected and no horizontal scrollbar will appear.

    However, if you specify syntax highlighting, like so:
    c++
    Some very long text ....

    It will not wrap and introduce scrollbars. I think it'd be nice to have some option to force wrapping, even when doing syntax highlighting.

    Side note: Is this actually a bug? Or is it expected?

  2. "Next unread channel" keyboard shortcut should jump to unread in next Team if no unread in current team

    Currently, you can use the "Next Unread channel" shortcut in the apps (e.g. Alt + Shift + Down) to jump to the next unread channel. If there are no more unread channels in the current team, but the next team in your team list has unreads, then the shortcut should jump to that team and the first unread channel there.

  3. Dynamic documentation URL

    At the moment all the documentation points to https://mattermost.com which is inaccessible from our environment (no internet access). We have mirrored your documentation to our environment and wish to link to it, instead of https://mattermost.com
    At the moment this seems impossible.

  4. Better wording for account deactivation

    When a user want to delete his account, he can think "deactivation" is enough but doesn't necessarily know that it just means that he cannot log anymore…

    Maybe (in advanced settings):

    "By deactivating your account you will no longer be able to log in but the messages will be kept. To permanently delete your account and your messages, please contact your administrator."

    And a similar (or the same) message in email notification.

  6. Bring profile photos from AD when AD/LDAP synchronization configured

    A lot of AD forests have Profile Photos in them. Mattermost provides no administrative capability to set profile photos. Therefore, just yank them out of AD? Would prevent complex UI from being necessary and give us AD admins a more fancy way :)

  7. Send a notification to the mobile app when the sesson is expired

    Currently, there is no way for a user to know that their mobile session expired without opening their app and checking it manually. This causes users to potentially miss out important messages as they may not realize that they are signed out.

    To solve this, it would be best if the Mattermost mobile app sent a notification when the session is expired, so the user is aware of it and can sign back in.

  8. Support preview of HEIF / HEIC images

    Modern smartphones, iOS and Android based, save photos in HEIC instead of JPEG.

    As of now, there's no preview support for HEIC encoded images. When people post photos taken on their smartphones, users currently have to download the photo to see it.

    Therefore I suggest adding support of HEIC to the image previews feature.

  9. Restrict BigBlueButton to allowed users

    As of now, mattermost custom integration plugin is available to all users on Team edition. It will be good if there is a restriction like "personal access token" can be enabled for particular users.

  10. Mattermost - Read Only channel

    For the moment, when this option "ExperimentalTownSquareIsReadOnly" is set to true, all the Town Square channels of all the teams become read-only.

    It will great to set up this option not globally, but at the team level and not only on the "Town Square" channel but on any public channel.

  11. gallery view

    I am not totally convinced of videocalls. In my opinion it is enough to use the audio channel as the main means of communication and a chat channel as a second option.

    Of course there are many benefits from using videos like [nod vigorously or do thumbs-up, gesture like raise hands](https://martinfowler.com/articles/effective-video-calls.html)

    but I think those can also be found in a chat. Maybe to a certain degree not as much in the good old serial chat. Therefore I`d like to establish a chat within gallery view, like they already exist in video calls, so all participants are able…

  12. Admins should be able to clear or hide the history of a channel.

    Sometimes I want to add new users to a channel, but I don't want them to see the messaging history. As an admin, I could have the right to delete the history of the chosen channel, or at least have the option to hide the history when new users join.

  13. Quick Markdown insert

    Multiple ways to implement this :


    • Select a word, then right-click and chose a formatting option (bold, italic, code, etc)

    • Select a word and like in Office apps chose formatting options in a toolbar

    • Add keyboard shortcuts to add a specific markdown

    • Add most used markdowns under the input and make them clickable to insert them

    • Add an icon to add markdown (like the Emoji icon)

  15. Image preview blacklist

    Image Preview: Add a site blacklist to prevent image previews from selected sites.

    Example: Someone can set up private repositories on github that aren't visible to users that aren't logged in and aren't members of the organization. Link preview currently creates a preview of the root github page. This is pretty annoying when you're sharing links to pull requests with coworkers.

  17. increase the 22 character limit on channel names.

    Slack recently increased their character limitation on channel names. We would like Mattermost to increase the limit as well, as this has been a helpful feature since it was rolled out.

  18. ifttt

    It would be great to have a first class Mattermost (tm) integration with IFTTT so external integrations can trigger Mattermost API events.

    Here's some examples of the things you can do with IFTTT integration: https://ifttt.com/slack

  19. "Add a comment" Cursor Focus after Clicking Reply

    After clicking reply to a message, you cannot begin typing until you click a second time on the "Add a comment..." box because focus is directed to the search bar. It seems like priority should be given to replying when a user clicks on reply. We are using version 4.2.0.

  20. separate latex math mode from syntax highlighting scheme

    Currently, as far as I know, the only possibility to use latex math mode is through "highjacking" the syntax highlighting feature of preformatted text. However, I see two problems with this:
    1. This is counter intuitive as this syntax is normally used for another concept.
    2. At the moment, this solution "blocks" the possibility of sharing syntax highlighted latex code, because it seems to overwrite this default behavior of the used library for syntax highlighting.

    Thus I recommend two changes:
    1. enable sharing of preformatted latex code through the use of backticks and language identifier tex (also, to be compatible…
