  1. Show filenames after dragging a file into a message

    Currently when you drag a file into a message the name of the file isn't shown until you send a message. It would be nice if the filename could be displayed before sending so that you can confirm the right file was dragged in.

  2. Better /me command style

    /me command has very poor style distinction. It only uses italics but it is enclosed in a dialog balloon as any other message.

    It is more distinguishable, for example, when the system balloon tells join/leave actions in 3rd person. I think something like that would be more accurate for the /me command.

  4. Highligh notification for each team per app

    Insert the opportunity to highlight the notifications of each team from the team selection menu. Currently it is not clear which team by the notification.

  5. Add a repository for the contents of your website.

    I noticed some errors on your website, mostly typos and small improvements that could be made. It would be cool if I could just send a pull request on GitHub/Gitlab.

  6. Mobile: Show "[user] is typing..."

    Same as the web client, it's important to see this so messages don't get sent while one person is still finishing their thought.

  7. Indentation for own messages on channels

    It would be useful to indent own messages posted to channels, in addition to current shading with gray. Like in several other chat platforms do.

  8. smtp authorization support request

    for most small company, there is no ldap servier or sso. but all most have email service, self hosted or saas like google mail.
    if there is a authorization type called smtp authorization like oauth2(google,gitlab...), it will make company helpful more without make another authorization system, bothered with account management.

  9. Allow messages to begin with a forward slash

    When you type a message that begins with a forward slash (i.e. answering your colleague's question by telling them the path to a file), MM thinks you're giving it a command.

    The current behaviour is to (1) show you an error, (2) refuse to display the message, and (3) not let you use the up-arrow to prefix your "command" with something that indicates that it's not a command.

    It would be really nice if MM just let things that weren't commands just be treated as regular messages.

  11. Offensive Words Filter

    In a professional environment, it would not be polite to allow some kind of language specially in open channels. It would be very useful for admins to handle a small database of words not permitted in their channel and a filter that replaces the "offending words" for symbols or other words defined by them.

  12. Edit + Move others' messages in public Channel + History

    Edit others' messages in public channels. Give admins the right to restrict the editing rights to certain users and channels.

    Use Cases:

    1.) Something in a message is wrong, commit number, bug report number, link, etc.
    2.) Move message to the appropriate channel, user might have posted it to the wrong channel

    This of course also allows censorship, which is why a history of the messages would be nice.

  13. We need "(managerable) Closed Public Channel / Nonstealth private group"

    as we like the style of discussion coming up to several topics, a lot customers we work with, make us work with an NDA. So we are not allowed to discuss work related stuff with people, that did not sign this NDA. Ok. We could go with Private Groups. BUT: this is invite only. Sometimes it would be helpful to be able to "see" that there are several topics that might be of my intrest, so i would like to ask the admin to let me join. So I would like to have different "Channel Modes" like : administrate channe…

  14. import multiple slack communities at once

    I am on over 20 Slack communities. Adding each one one at a time to my mattermost apps will be slow and error prone.

    Add a way to read my config from running slack apps, and/or discover all the slack communities a given email address is a member of, and import them all at once to the Mattermost apps.

  15. 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)

  16. 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…

  17. 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. :)

  18. 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

  19. Purge Inactive Users

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

  20. 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.
