  1. Add a keyboard shortcut to jump the the currently open RHS content/message thread.

    Often, I will have a long running thread/message-reply chain open, and then a certain channel open for other conversations. It would be great to have a keyboard shortcut to jump to the input for the sidebar, just like there is the equivalent "Focus Input" shortcut (Shift + GUI + L) that jumps to the input for the current channel.

    With that, I could easily jump between both places to add new messages without having to switch to my mouse/trackpad.

  2. Integrate GoToMeeting

    As we use GoToMeeting, the Mattermost plugin for Zoom does not help. We would verymuch appreciate a similar possibility to integrate GoToMeeting.

  3. restrict attachments by channel or by team

    There should be an option to restrict file upload by channel or even by team globally.

    Currently if I disable file upload, it will be disable for all the teams and all the channels...

  4. 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:

  5. "Hot Unread": Highlight channels with recent activity

    "Unread" on its own isn't always useful.

    I watch close to 100 channels. Many of the channels are in a permanent unread state because they're not critical. What I'd really like to know is which channels have recent activity (say within the last hour) so I can jump into an active conversation.

    This doesn't replace "Unread", but would be an elevated state, like "Hot Unread". After a period of time, it then falls back to "Unread"

  6. Ability to upload videos with size over 50mb

    In the iOS application, you need to be able to choose the degree of video compression at startup. This is necessary so that you can compress videos and upload them. Now, when you try to upload a video clip, the video is primarily compressed, but since the compression algorithms are not good enough, the video still weighs too much and cannot be uploaded. Please fix it.

  7. Add support for emoji reactions in Slack import

    Both Slack and Mattermost support emoji reactions to posts and Slack also includes information about those reactions in its export files. So I think it shouldn't be too hard to make it possible to preserve those reactions when performing import from Slack.

    Though not always important, there can be many cases when it can be very desirable to keep those reactions and transfer them to Mattermost during migration.

  8. Keyboard shortcut to change team

    To have a single mattermost client connected to several teams is a great feature.

    What i find missing is a keyboard shortcut to change team. The other shortcuts are very good and I usually can navigate through many channels and conversations with keyboard only, but when I see that have received in other team, I have to use the mouse.

    Perhaps you could add tabs or something similar to the "quick channel switcher" (Ctrl-K) or have a new shortcut to switch teams (e.g. Ctrl-T).

  10. Voice Messages Record and Play

    The same way we can send messages, we should be able to send voice messages.

    It should be as simple as click "add voice", record what you want, press send and it's made available on the server for others to listen.

    It should be supported by browser and mobile client apps.

  12. unlimited search results

    for the default search backend (sql), search results are capped at 100!

    you can verify this by loading jquery and doing:

    $('.search-item__container').length;

    you can see that paging isn't supported:

    https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/app/post.go#L821

    and the sql uses LIMIT 100:

    https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/store/sqlstore/post_store.go#L834

    i know this isn't an issue in enterprise because you're using elasticsearch, but please either bring elasticsearch to team edition or fix the default search backend. 100 results is sad :(

  13. Auto-archive channels

    Hello All,

    Would be great to have any option to configure on MM to auto-archive channels (private or public) if no activity for a time period.
    This will be really useful, due, we create channels everyday for temporal purposes (incidents, discussions, etc) and no always the participants archive the channels when are not needed.
    So, an automatic way to do that would be great to perform the archival for the channels which the last activity was older than 30 days for example...

    ;)

  15. 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:

  16. Using Mattermost as my only chat client.

    I like Mattermost client, it's way better than anything else out there.
    I want to manage my Facebook messages inside Mattermost client, and I want to connect to an IRC which has nothing to do with my corporation.

    So I want to mess my private life with work, but I would be very happy about this.

    There were trials, for example, libpurple with Pidgin chat client. But Pidgin is like using windows live messenger in 2020.

    I know Facebook Messenger has no public protocol for that, so I'm not requesting to implement that, but provide, for example, IRC, libpurple protocols…

  17. member list

    Member list on side of chat window w/ status indicator

    Show a member list on the side of the chat window listing all the users that are in the current room, sorted by status and then name (so that logged out users are at the bottom).

    This seems critical to communication .. who's in the room, who's online, who am I talking to, am I in the right room before typing @everyone, etc. At a glance. The little member button with drop down is insufficient especially in rooms with hundreds of people.

    This is a repost, but the original is…

  20. Enable a setting to allow sound alerts on a channel basis

    I love that I can get notified when there is a post with a sound. But we have a community channel that a huge number of people belong to where things are discussed that I'm not interested in. I was added to the channel by my boss, and think it would be rude to disconnect. But if I could just turn off the notifications for that channel then I wouldn't be so distracted looking at many many notifications that have nothing to do with me and my work. Thanks for letting us make suggestions to make Matermost even better! Our…
