  1. Add autocomplete for webhooks

    Sorry, I posted my idea here : https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/1256

    Descirption :

    Let me explain this through an example
    I've set a outgoing webhooks triggered by "$", then sended text is parsed by my bot, and runs according command.
    ie: "$start 1234" runs "start" command with "1234" args.

    Autocomplete hook could work like this:
    I enter "$st" and press tab, the hook is triggered, sends current text to the bot and the response populates the autocomplete list with something like [{command: […], description: […]}, […]] and whatever needed by the list.

  2. Utilize full witdth of screen for chat

    The chat wastes a lot of screen space on devices with a large screen.
    See https://cloud.githubusercontent.com/assets/2156866/11251371/ec9e246e-8dfe-11e5-9a7a-912eefde4318.png for example.
    The chat should use the full width.

  3. Copying and pasting is not great

    A copied mattermost conversation has three lines per message, and the first line is like "ryantm1 minute ago" and the last line is blank. It would be nice if there were cleaner ways to copy the conversations.

  4. Display option to add a click count next to embedded links

    Similar to how discourse (https://forum.mattermost.org/) tracks the number of clicks on a link.

    Proposed spec:

    1) Add Team Setting > Display > Advanced Message Display Options

    Title: Advanced Message Display Options

    Help text: "Advanced options for message display."

    [ ] Show count of clicks next to hyperlinks in messages.

    2) If zero clicks have been made on a link, show no indicator.

  5. Timer for channels

    Add a timer - like an egg clock.

    "I set the timer on this channel to 15minutes, and when its over, @channel gets a notification to stop their tasks and message the results here"

    "Ok, everybody brainstorm this idea until the channel timer bleeps"

    "Scrum meeting is delayed 30 minutes, I set up a timer so you dont miss the start of it"

  6. Add github integration

    I think, an integration with github will become the most important feature that push mattermost among dev teams, because many companies use private github repositaries for internal software development. Btw. maybe it is related with this feature http://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/9557994-add-git-hooks, but anyway I just wanted stress out particularly github.

    Guys, thank you for your great work!

  7. Integrate with Discourse

    It would be fantastic if Mattermost could share user registrations from Discourse, so that our users only have to register/login once to use essentially the same site.

  9. Support websockets on separate sub-domain

    Cloudflare does not include support for websockets on its free accounts so they advise you to create a subdomain to be used exclusively for websockets and configure the DNS so that the websocket communication is not routed through their service. I'm not sure how difficult this would be to implement, but I am hoping not very ;-)

  10. Integrate with push message gcm and register new users using phone number and SMS confirmation.

    The idea is to cloning WhatsApp.
    So, login using phone number + password
    SMS to user in order to verify the phone number
    Push messages with Google and apple.

  11. Add support for custom header/footer on webpages

    It would be extremely useful for a straight-forwarded way of adding a custom header and footer to the static HTML pages. For instance, my employer requires some boilerplate legalese on every internal webpage and currently this would require editing nearly every HTML file in /web/templates. Similarly it would be nice to be able to add badging to the header of every page with a logo or something along those lines.

  16. Pretty private message URLs

    Just like channel URLs but automatically created.
    Example:
    http://domain.com:8065/channels/town-square - default channel URL
    http://domain.com:8065/users/user - URL for private messages of the user

  17. API specification

    Cross posted from GitHub issues: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/69

    I see that the code appears to be logically organised around a clean-looking API; I can go and read through the Go source and get to understand it, but it'd be better if there were a specification of that API clearly written somewhere for reference. As this is a developing project, it'd especially be useful to know what parts of the API are considered "stable".

    Lets-Chat have an API spec which was invaluable to me in writing a Python API wrapper and I'd love to do the same for Mattermost. :)

  19. Implement Support for Slackline

    Posting from Justin I on old feature request forum: https://mattermost.zendesk.com/hc/communities/public/questions/204151705-Slackline-for-Mattermost

    http://slackline.io/ lets you connect 2 channels from different accounts.
    It would be great to be able to do this with Mattermost to make transitioning from Slack to Mattermost easier.
    i.e. we can have people on Mattermost and Slack, but all conversations that happen on Mattermost are pushed into Slack and visa-versa so that holdouts don't miss anything.

    If it helps, code is here: https://github.com/ernesto-jimenez/slackline

    The first release of Mattermost emphasizes Docker installation, and package install instructions are also being requested.
