  1. Channels gathering by theme

    In my team we start to have a lot of channels.
    Some are only for bots telling us the when the database is backed of when someone push on the git.

    It could be nice to gather them by theme like "automation" or "tasks"...

    Someone suggested to add tags to channels, it's something similar I guess.

  2. Asynchronous uploads (that do not block chatting)

    Right now, when you upload a larger sized file you are blocked from chatting until the upload finishes.

    It would be nice if the upload is handled separately so you can continue sending new chats while the upload is processed. Slack does this too.

  3. no character length of name when display is set to "real name"

    Now it is set to 24(?)

    For example "Mansoor Nahasapeemapetilon" would be displayed as "Mansoor Nahasapeemapetil..."

    There is enough space to display the whole name.

  5. Noification through Taskbar blink for new messages

    There are instances when I am away from my PC and when I come back, I want my attention to be pulled to mattermost if I have new messages. A taskbar blink on new messages will do that.
    Now I have to remember to open mattermost every once in a while, which you tend to forget when you are busy with other work.

  6. Option to show integration username overrides in push notifications

    When push notifications get sent they show up as my username for my integrations (username posted to channel). It would be great if the notifications showed username overrides instead or there was an option to do so, "Nagios posted to channel".

  8. Add option to restrict DMs to users who share at least 1 team

    Proposed text:

    #### System Console > Team Settings > Direct Message options

    Enable users to open Direct Message channels with:

    - Any user on the Mattermost server // default
    - Any member of a team on which a user is also a team member

    Help text: ”Any user on the Mattermost server” enables users to open a Direct Message channel with any user on the server, even if they are not on any teams together. "Any member of a team on which a user is also a team member" limits the ability to open Direct Message channels to only users…

  9. Limit matches for @ completion to users in the active channel

    With a mattermost setup with hundreds of users, you get a lot of username matches when you type @, however if you're in a channel with only a small subset of the hundred users, you still need to narrow down the list by typing in more characters than necessary to match the name you want. For improved efficiency the list of users to match against shoulld be limited to the users currently on the channel.

    This limit should of course not be applied if you are doing /msg @someone, and possibly not even when you mention @someone somewhere inside your…

  10. Filtering webhooks to process every post

    I'd like to code up support for specifying remote filters that would get to process every post. When a post is sent to the server, it would get passed to the processing service(s), which would return a potentially modified message to get saved/displayed. It would also potentially trigger an incoming webhook that might add follow-on information. The specification of the "filtering webhooks" would be similar to that of outgoing webhooks. Would anyone else be interested in this?

  11. Extend customization options to include message bg for current user

    NOTES:
    - I'm posting this as per the request made here: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/2549
    - I am not capable of implementing this myself

    Mattermost highlights user's own messages with a gray background (color depends on fg text color). It is entirely up to user's personal taste and preference whether these highlights add anything to the experience: I personally find them distracting and feel they disrupt the flow of the conversation. Also, visually, they're unappealing.

    So, however you feel about these highlights personally, you should at least agree that they're a prominent visual feature. As such, users should be able to turn them…

  12. Improve web accessibility

    It would be great if the WCAG 2.0 guidelines could be implemented to help people with disabilities to use Mattermost.

    This is an area that is often overlook, specially by the recent wave of chat platforms, so it's an opportunity for Mattermost to differentiate itself from the crowd.

    This is planned. Would anyone be interested helping with this effort as we create tickets for them?

    It would be great to hear people’s feedback on what are the biggest gaps with accessibility currently.

  13. Change wording in app notifications that are @channel

    When someone post @channel i get a notification that says "somone metioned YOU....". That shoul ony come when they have mentioned you spesificly. if not it should say something like "in channel X someone mentioned @channel"

  14. Add a system console option to set whether team admins can make a team open

    Currently there is an option to restrict team creation. It would be nice to have the option where we let team admins create teams, but restrict open teams to system admins only

  18. Ability to customize the chat display/layout

    Add a way to customize the display of the chat in the web interface. Currently a single message takes up two lines of text. If each message could be formatted as desired, the layout could be tailored to each users preference.

    For example (with overly descriptive variable names):
    %SENTTIME%| %SENDER%> %MESSAGE%
    Would result in:
    15:56| Kristian> Hello world!

    To build the current view, you could do:
    %AVATAR% %SENDER% %SENTTIMEAGO%\n%MESSAGE%

    Or something like that.

    As a long time IRC user, I feel that the WebUI for mattermost uses way too much space for a simple chat messages. With customized layout, it…

  19. Provide an option to show the amount of new messages in a channel

    Actually we can see our amout of new mention in a channel, is it possible to do same thing with new messages ?

    I think the bold text for new messages isn't visible enough, with a sort of buble like mentions it can be more visible.
