  1. Allow resizing and hiding of sidebar

    It would be nice to be able to click/drag the sidebar (where channels are) and resize it/ hide it if desired.

    Resizing it and having a channel name abbreviated with ... could make sense;

    ex: Town Square once it starts getting cut off would become Tow... (depending on how small you make the sidebar). Then if you go over far enough it snaps into a hidden position

  2. Have ability to close a channel without leaving it

    Currently it is not possible to 'close' a channel without leaving it, or remove it from the sidebar. This can be problematic when you are a part of many channels, especially private ones where you will need to be re-invited to it after leaving it. For example, I would still like to be part of a particular private channel in the event that something comes up, but I would like to have the option to close it/remove it from the sidebar to avoid clutter.

    Right now there is no method to close a channel from the sidebar and still be…

  3. Mattermost - Dropbox Integration

    As of now, the integration between Mattermost and Dropbox relies on third party setup such as Zapier and Integromat:
    * https://zapier.com/apps/dropbox/integrations/mattermost
    * https://www.integromat.com/en/integrations/dropbox/mattermost

    It will be great to have a built in plugin to perform this functionality. For example, send a notification to a channel / direct message when a file is uploaded.

  6. Add parent message reference for slash commands

    When running a slash command and replying to a message, it’d be great if we could also have the ID reference for the parent message being replied to.

    Example use case: you have a series of past messages and want to “run a command” using the message as the source of some slash command, and you want it to be ephemeral

  7. have a channel preference to have a badge for new messages in a channel like direct messages

    Something like "subscribing" to a channel, where when anyone posts in the channel, you get a direct message badge that behaves like they @'ed you for every message.

    Example:
    UserA: hi
    UserB: sup

    Windows icon on taskbar: red (2)

  8. Directory of public channels/channels I can have access to

    A user should be able to easily see & search the list of all channels they have joined and can join. I'm seeing a number of duplicate channels created across teams because the user did not know it existed in another location.

  9. Distribute Mattermost Desktop via the Mac App Store

    Hi,
    Since the Mattermost Desktop client does not include an auto-updater and the iOS version is already distributed on the App Store, why don't you distribute the mac client on the Mac App Store.

    This would solve the updating problem and also make the app easier to discover. The download page is pretty hidden on the mattermost website, I always end up on the server download page when I only want to check for update.

  11. Allow plugins to add to the settings menu

    Allow plugins to add to the settings menu, much like they can add to the System Console settings.

  12. Search direct messages: Member name suggestions

    Currently you have to know and type the exact name when searching in a direct message history of a single person via "in:@name". Whatever you type is even falsely "corrected" to some other channel when there is a match and you hit enter!

    That is why I suggest to include member names in the suggestions when typing a name with "in:@...".

  13. When using the channel reference (~ sign), it should only return channels that I am a member of

    Currently when using the channel reference (~ sign), it returns all public channels that matches the search, regardless of whether the user is a member of it or not.

    It would be more efficient to only show channels that the user is currently a part of

  14. When using the channel reference (~ sign), sort the results with exact matches of name first

    Currently when using the channel reference (~ sign), it sorts the results alphabetically, and it matches these search results based on the display name, the channel URL and the channel purpose.

    It would be better however if it were to sort the direct matches with display name higher/at the top of the list so it would be easier for users to find and navigate to those channels.

  16. API: Add new_msg_count to /users/me/teams/{{team_id}}/channels/members

    Currently you need to make two calls to get the total count of unread messages or to get the count of unread messages from a single channel (/users/me/teams/{{team_id}}/channels and /users/me/teams/{{team_id}}/channels/members).

    To avoid the first request, it would be nice to have a new property e.g. new_msg_count that returns the current new message count for a channel. This is currently only possible by substracting the msg_count (second request) from the total_msg_count (first request).

    This topic has already been discussed on github: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/8591#issuecomment-383909505

  19. Integrating OneDrive for media storage

    Instead of Amazon S3, being able to use MS OneDrive for media storage.

    This would be great for companies who have this large amount of storage essentially 'free' with their Office 365 accounts rather than spending for S3 storage.
