  1. Have "Unread" option showing all unread messages and notifications across all channels

    Slack has something similar that shows above all channels. It makes it easy to browse through your unread messages without having to click each channel separately.

  2. Add a configurable setting to show count of unread messages, mentions or channels on taskbar

    Original discussion can be found here: https://github.com/mattermost/desktop/issues/111

    Add a configurable setting to show count of unread messages, mentions or channels on taskbar.

    When a message is received, there is small red badge with number of total unread mentions (in the client taskbar icon and the browser tab).

    Proposal is to let the user choose what to count on this badge - any messages, mention and direct messages only or even number of channels with unread messages

  3. allow personal access tokens for all users

    Currently non-admins cannot create personal access tokens unless they ask an admin to enable personal access tokens for them. Considering that any user could already go through the SSO flow or use username+password depending on the setup to get a token for the API, there should be a config option to allow everyone to create personal access tokens by default.

  4. Delete Direct Message History

    Currently, we have users that work in close proximity to one another, and sometimes take on each other's identities, it would be nice if we had a way for a user to delete their direct message history. Reopening a direct message with a user should start fresh. If the logs remained unchanged that would be great too.

  5. Support for nosql database

    Considering the benefits of data analytics for such kind of apps, don't you think support for a nosql database would help. Also, if you want to scale it to a million users; will a rdbms solution support that?

  6. Loop GIFs on mouseover

    The GIF preview feature is great, but a channel full of looping gifs is visually distracting.

    Discord's implementation of this functionality plays the GIF once, then repeats it on mouseover. This works really well and would be a nice polish to the current implementation.

  7. Read Receipts: Implement a visual indication for messages if and when they have been read by other users of the channel

    Sometimes one's wondering if a post has already been read by other users. I could image that a member list of the channel pops up when one is selecting the read status from the particular post menu ("[..]").
    In private chats, a sinple check sign (similar to whatsapp) could signalize if a message had beend read by your counterpart.

  8. Teammate name display selections

    Would it be possible to add custom selection of username, nickname and full name to teammate name display? This would make it possible to use combinations like John Doe (Johnny-boy) or John Doe (johnd).

  9. Add option to set multi-team team or server-wide display defaults

    Add an option to allow changing of the default "Display" settings from the System Console. (E.g set Theme & Teammate Name default "Display" settings globally).

  10. Clone slack's code snippet feature.

    Clone slack's code snippet feature.

    I think this is different from
    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/12927891-code-snippet-with-preview
    Which gives more detailed explanation at the ends.

    It is also a little different from
    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/15495801-add-a-one-click-action-to-create-a-new-snippet
    In that not requesting to do away with fences, just want the slack snippet feature.

    Thanks!

  11. Touchbar integration

    How about adding touchbar integration for the latest Macbook Pros? This is one thing that HipChat had that was quite useful - could be used for emoji search, setting away/dnd status, etc.

    Thoughts?

  12. Make visual indications of new messages more pronounced

    The current indication for the Mac client is a hardly distinguishable blue dot for the team and a hardly distinguishable whiter color for the channel. It's nice and muted, but I had to really look hard before I found what to look for for unread messages. I suggest a slightly more pronounced way of indicating unread messages for teams and channels.

  14. Allow webhooks to trigger other webhooks posts

    From: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/1901

    Outgoing webhooks are not triggered by other webhooks posts. For example if bota posts "hello" on Town Square and botb is typically triggered by "hello", it will not be triggered.

    If this was implemented, the danger is creating cycles unintentionally, so there should be a way to avoid that.

    Add cusom user groups for mentions. Something like @developers or @frontend to mention all members of group in this channel. Also it would be useful for large teams, when novices does not know who is who - with this feature they can determinate at least group

  18. File viewer integration

    Today we only open image, audio, video and pdf files, but I want to open autocad, ms office and other files.
    If we've a File viewer integration, where the system admin configures an integration to specified file extension.
    In this case in my team, we could configure Mattermost to post "*.dwg" file in a webservice when an user want to view this file, this webservice could use autodesk viewer api and returns the page to view this file.
    I could use other integration to view excel, word using google or office365 api, etc.
    I don't know if this idea was…

  19. calculator

    In google search, when you prefix a search with "=", it automatically runs the search as a maths calculation. It would be great to have this in mattermost as well.
    So if a message starts with a "=" and does not contain other text, it should be postfixed with the result of the calculation.

  20. Clickable Phone Number in phone app

    In other chat apps, if someone writes a phone number, it turns into a clickable link automatically, so you can easily call someone. In our field, we are constantly giving phone numbers in our chats for field staff who need a call from a supervisor, and this would speed up our processes immensely. Thank you.
