  1. Pseudo-random default avatars

    Make the default user's avatars more random. Instead of just being a circle with the first letter of the user's username, use some hashing algorithm to generate some sort of identicons. An idea very popular nowadays (Github, GitLab, Gravatar, Slack, etc)

  2. Context menu on user names or mentions, like "Send Email", "View Profile" and allow integrations

    Clicking on a user mention shows other mentions. But maybe we want to interact with that user in other ways, like sending a message (which should open the private conversation with them), send an email, view profile, etc.
    In addition, we could allow for integration with some other service. For example, integration can be defined as a URL endpoint that can pass/post the username as parameter or request a custom field in the use profile which then can be sent as parameter. For example, let's say we want to integrate with Skype to call the user via Skype. Integration might…

  3. Disable Webkit's elastic scrolling for page

    Currently when you scroll too far on Mac OS X, the entire page does this annoying sort of elastic stretch-back animation. This can be disabled by some simple CSS. Should be a pretty easy win. :)

  4. CTRL+F performs a browser-like search in the desktop app

    One missing piece in the desktop apps is CTRL+F browser-like search.

    There is a plan to implement 'search in current channel' (https://github.com/mattermost/desktop/issues/305), but implementing the browser-like find feature is closer to the web app experience

    There is existing electron APIs for finding something on the page: http://electron.atom.io/docs/api/web-contents/#contentsfindinpagetext-options

  5. Purge Inactive Users

    It would be great to be able to purge users who have not logged into the site in a definable window.

  6. Prevent keyboard from hiding after sending on native mobile apps.

    Keyboard hides after clicking send button.

    It would be better to persist the keyboard on screen after sending a message. This is a common use case for users to who want to send separate messages instead of creating paragraphs.

    Hiding the keyboard should be triggered by the 'Done' button or touching the message display area.

  9. Allow users and passwords to be created from admin console

    While having users create their own accounts as a result of sending an e-mail invite, I'd like to be able to make users and assign them permissions and passwords right from the admin console, without having to configure SSO or drop to a command line.

  10. Make referencing/embedding attached images easier

    It's already easy to attach an image simply via drag and drop or pasting it from the clipboard. That's great!

    Unfortunately at the moment it is not possible to attach an image and directly reference/embed it in the message, so that it is shown in the text. You first have to send the message to get access to the image links.

    The easiest solution would be, to provide image links even without sending the message, so that we can link manually.

    The more sophisticated solution would allow me to click on the image which should then paste the image link…

  11. Jump to new message

    In case of a new message it would be great if the application/ web interface would directly jump to the contact who sent the message.
    Actually you get the notification and need to click on the marked contact to see the new message.

    This should be optional.

  12. Don't play the notifiaction sound if your phone is muted

    The android app is playing sound, when receiving notifications, even if my phone is on vibration. Probably due to the webview used.

  13. Add a one-click action to create a new snippet

    Like Slack, being able to create a snippet by clicking a button and choose from a droplist the language would be far less painful than typing ``` (especially for non-qwerty keyboards).

    It would be more intuitive especially for coders who discover the platform. Thanks!

  14. mailgun as mail manager

    Propose to use mailgun (an email service for developers) as an alternative to the SMTP server. The open-source blog platform ghost uses it and it is very easy to configure (instead of a whole server mail to install and secure).

    It would be great if you could prevent users from changing their first and last names when using LDAP authentication.

  16. Preprovision native client apps

    As i'm rolling out the native Windows client to a lot of users (via windows software distribution) i'd like to be able to pre-provision the app with our mattermost servers url (and maybe other settings). It would be great if the client would support some way of getting it's initial configuration for example via a config file distributed with it.
    I've posted it to the windows category but i guess this would be nice (and just as easy to implement) on every platform. Mobile apps might be more difficult though.

  17. iOS horizontal support on iPhones

    I would like to add horizontal support to the iOS iPhone application in order to make viewing code snippets a bit more user friendly.

    I have implemented the change already, but need a ticket to create a pull request.

  18. Stop sniffing the User-Agent, use feature detection

    The Mattermost web interface uses the User-Agent of the browser, which is a bad idea because browsers can (and do) anyway lie about which browser they are.

    As a matter of fact, right now Mattermost will give a warning (and not work) when e.g. using Epiphany (the GNOME Web browser), but changing the User-Agent does work. Because its engine is WebKit, which makes it to support almost everything that Safari does (and Safari is in the list of supported browsers).

    What Mattermost should do is feature detection. More info at: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/3353#event-703118004

  19. Support for older Android version - starting from 4.0+

    Android 4.4 is to high requirement. Slack app support also older Android versions, why Mattermost can't? 4.0+ would be reasonable.
