  1. Remove duplicated parameter in the API

    In link to this [issue](https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/11703), parameters such like the `post_id` may be required twice in the paramters and in the body of a request. Keeping only one would be preferable

  3. 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. display pinned messages on top

    Unless you happen to be Chinese the pinned messages on the right are likely the last thing you will read.

    The effective way to pin messages is to stack pinned messages on top.

    The metaphor is that the message is pinned to the top of viewport and does not scroll away as other messages do.

  6. make pinned messages more visible

    - display pinned messages by default until the user hides them (and remember the hidden state until new message is pinned)
    - display the pin icon in different color/style when pinned messages exist

  7. How to change the Notification Sound in Mobile and Desktop?

    Hello,

    I am using Mattermost Android app to receive notification and messages. But it is very confusing to distinguish between other notification and Mattermost notification.

    It takes the default notification tone of mobile and desktop.

    Please provide the option to change the notification sound or if there is any method to do that then please let me know.

  8. Use Keycloak as an IDP

    Keycloak is one of the most popular IDP providers used.

    It would be great it Keycloak could be supported as simple as other authentication providers based on the same technology.

  9. Make the hosting application detect the white-window crash state, and automatically reload.

    #### Summary
    We apparenlty have a server issue causing the Mattermost window to go white with no activity on my behalf. View->Refresh recovers it, but how come I have to do that manually?

    #### Steps to reproduce
    version 4.2.0 on Linux.

    1. Log in and leave it until it goes white - roughly once or twice most days, some days not at all.

    #### Expected behavior

    It should detect that it's gone white, create some log bundle for creating issues here, and then refresh itself (with perhaps exponential throttling so it doesn't end up in a wild refresh loop if…

  10. Is there any plan to integrate Mattermost with CiviCRM?

    We use CiviCRM for our basic admin as a not for profit. The email system in CiviCRM is clunky. Would be great to link Mattermost in some way so we could bypass the CiviCRM email system and just use Mattermost for most of our team communications.

  11. Show nicknames on each line while in compact mode

    There should be an option to show the nickname on each line, when using compact mode. As a long-time IRC user, I expect to have the name repeated on each line.
    This is specially annoying when the "New Messages" marker shows, where it should ALWAYS show the name in the line following the marker.

  12. Forbid to change username

    Add an server wide option to forbid renaming user names. It might be a security problem, if someone claims abandoned user name (/account name).

  13. 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:

  14. Disable the "More Actions" tooltip when the menu is already open

    On the [...] button on the right side of a message, there's a tooltip displaying the text "More Actions". When I click on this button, the menu pops up and then the tooltip appears, blocking the "Edit" menu item. The tooltip should never be allowed to pop up if the menu is already open.

    Firefox, Mattermost Version: 5.6.2

  15. transform message to into an answer to message above

    people are often sloppy in using answers to messages and just type it to the channel when it should be an answer to the message above.
    I propose a button visible to the author and admins that allows to transform a message into an answer to the message above.
    I hope it'll help to create more consistency in the usage of the answer/thread feature.

  16. Allow admin to invite users without allowing others to do so

    Currently there seems to be only a global configuration option whether to allow email invites to be sent to users. When this is turned on, everyone can send email invites. I'd like to be able to send email invites as admin without allowing all members to send email invites. Currently I have to turn the feature on, invite someone, then turn it off again.

  17. Disable taskbar badge for specified channel(s), but keep channel name in bold for unread general messages

    In the notification preferences for a channel (probably under Mark Channel Unread), I'd like to have the ability to disable the application icon badge in the taskbar unless someone mentions me or the whole channel, while still keeping the channel name in bold for any general messages.

    That way, when I open the app, I can see which channels have general messages for me to catch up on (b/c the channel name will be in bold), but I don't get drawn to the app by taskbar icon badges for channels that I don't want to be notified about while I'm…
