  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

    I like very much Mattermost but android app isn't compatible with Android Runtime 4.3 which is the one on Blackberry 10

  6. Extract GIF from Giphy links

    When posting a link to a Giphy page (e.g. http://giphy.com/gifs/power-rangers-morphin-OOZLyBA9Euq2I), it would be nice if Mattermost could automatically display the GIF below the post.
    (It works if you post the direct link to the .gif file but most users won't do that.)

  7. Allow restricting GitLab/GitHub SSO user signups to only a particular team

    Near as I can tell, right now if you use the GitLab/GitHub SSO option, any user with an account is able to sign up. It'd be great if there was a way to restrict signups to only users who are members of a particular team.

  8. Customize search clause for fulltext search

    Currently search clause for fulltext is using "@@" operator for PostgreSQL with tsvector/tsquery. But I would like to use "LIKE" operator with re-generated index for better search using language specific algorithm(e.g. Japanese).

    Now search clause template is "@@ %s". I would like to replace it to "LIKE %s" or "LIKE func(%s)".

  9. Try to use less CPU / energy in native Mac App

    Right now the Mattermost native Mac app is using a lot of CPU, pretty consistently over 10%, which seems really high for an app of this type. What could it possibly be doing to use that much CPU? The energy impact is almost up there with known battery drainers like Chrome and Firefox. I know it's a beta, so please consider this some beta-user feedback. Thanks!

  10. CTRL+F on Windows Desktop app puts cursor in Mattermost search box filtered to channel

    In the browser CTRL+F brings up text search for the page, so propose in the Windows Desktop app CTRL+F brings up Mattermost search pre-filtered to the channel to have a similar effect.

    Other than the ability to search a page, the browser and desktop app have almost the same functionality.

    Adding this would make the experiences more equivalent, rather than having desktop just slightly degraded.

  11. A way to tell web hook is coming from matter most.

    I hate having to have multiple repos, one for slack and one for mattermost. Would be nice if post coming in would tell me it's coming from mattermost.

  12. Use clocks to easily create and view threads

    This feature is really usefull to identify and follow different conversations in a channel.
    When you click on a clock, it adds the clock in the beginning of the post (or at the position of the cursor).
    When you hover on a clock in a post, it highlights the referring post and the answers to this post.

    You can see a demo there : http://sveetch.net/tribune/

  13. Make build process easier

    At the moment you have to configure the build environment to build the package. I'd suggest to create one script which will do the job without any configuration on almost all Linux environments.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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".
