  1. Delayed messages (/echo) should have longer delay than 10000 seconds

    You can delay a message for 5 seconds with this syntax:
    /echo "This multiline message
    is delayed" 5

    Today the delay limit is 10000 seconds (~2 hours 45 minutes). This is to short. This should be increased to at least a few days, but why not a week or more (so the message is sent after the vacation is over)?

    Sometimes when you got a message, you don't want to disturb the receiver at this time (e.g. in weekends or in vacations) or you got a better strategic moment to submit an idea. Then it would be very handy to…

  2. Use Gitlab's API to provide metadata for private resources

    Gitlab projects are more often than not shielded off into private repos.
    Given that Mattermost easily installs along with Gitlab (using the Omnibus installer, just by providing the url mattermost can listen on) it would make a lot of sense to have that info there; instead of a very unhelpful & confusing "Sign in" metadata

  3. allow users to add reactions to room join/leave announcements.

    Adding reactions on channel join/leave announcements is hilarious in Slack. Please add this.

  5. Desktop app: "Copy image" on images shown in channels

    Provide a "copy image" option that copies an image shown in a channel. In comparison, in the web app the "Copy image" is also available, as it is part of the standard Chrome menu for images.

    Original report: https://github.com/mattermost/desktop/issues/858

  6. Add ability to move mistaken thread replies in a channel to the intended thread

    If a user misses replying to a thread in a channel and instead replies directly to the channel, this message is not part of the thread that it was intended to be and the conversation is not clear.

    There should be a way for a user or channel admin to move a message to the intended thread inside the channel and keep it inline with the on-going threaded conversation (since everything is timestamped this seems possible).

    This would clean up the conversations and mistakes that users will make.

  8. add newlines with CTRL+ENTER (like in Slack and Skype)

    this is the opposite of the current setting:
    ENTER inserts a new line and CTRL+ENTER submits the message.

  9. show the device type the user is connected with (desktop vs mobile) with an icon near his avatar

    it is often useful to know when your contacts are chatting from a PC or from their smartphones.

  11. When sharing something from mobile browser to the Mattermost app, it should remember the last channel shared to as the new default

    When you share something from the mobile browser to the Mattermost Android app, it does not remember the last channel that was shared to.

    For example, the Mattermost app defaults to channel A because that is the last used channel. When I share a link from the Chrome browser to Mattermost, it will default to channel A, but in this case I opted to share to channel B. The next time I share a link, it will still default to channel A despite my last share being to channel B.

    It would be very convenient if the Mattermost app would…

  12. Automatic update for desktop client

    The Mattermost desktop client should automatically check for updates and prompt the user to update. This feature is mandatory in today's security landscape, even for an Electron app.

    Most of our users don't realize their desktop is many version out of date, with pending security fixes.

    Bonus points for shipping builds via the Windows Store, macOS App Store, snapcraft, etc.

  13. Make the loading screen match the user's theme colour.

    Hi!

    At the moment, no matter which theme you have selected (dark, light), the startup / loading screen is white with blue logo.

    My eyes adapt slowly to such strong shifts in brightness, and I would love it if would respect my preferences and be dark if a dark theme was selected.

    I posted this as an issue on GIthub, but was asked to move it here: https://github.com/mattermost/desktop/issues/985

  15. a way to secure self-managed Mattermost deployments...

    It is possible to secure self-managed Mattermost deployments w/ Fyde (www.fyde.com)'s unified security and trusted access platform.

    Fyde provides granular access controls for enterprise apps (i.e. Mattermost) and workloads, and continuously monitors access requests.

    With Fyde, you can roll-out strong device authentication, improve security posture of unmanaged devices and remediate configuration errors.

  17. Add a pin icon directly accessible

    Would it be possible to have an icon to pin a message directly, without having to click on the 3 dots? The solution would be either next to the "Flag" icon on the left (my prefered solution, like the picture below), or next to the Emoji icon on the right?

  18. make threads collapsible

    A toggle option so that threads appear as "N comments" and open in the side-panel, so they do not interrupt the main flow of the channel, and you can follow each thread mode easily.

  19. Unread message notifier in launcher icon in Linux

    On Ubuntu 19.04, the mattermost desktop client does not indicate unread messages in the launcher (I mean adding a little pop-up symbol to the icon as shown in this post about Windows #194).

    I don't know if that is intended (no comparison on other systems). For thunderbird a similar thing exists, but I wouldn't know how to implement right away. I suggest a permanent "red dot" indicating new messages, or optionally a counter.

  20. allow message with slack attachments to show there fallback text in email notifications (instead of sending an empty email)

    Hi all,

    We ran into an issue where messages sent that consist of an attachment as per:
    https://docs.mattermost.com/developer/message-attachments.html 1
    don’t show anything in email notifications. I was wondering if this was intended?

    I can imagine sending the formatted text is difficult, but part of the message attachment is a fallback string and including this in the email notification should be feasable.

    Kind regards,
    Louis
