  1. System Administrator: Ability to Import Users via CSV / Excel File

    While system administrator are limited to only have the following methods to create / import users:
    * Local users: mattermost user create CLI, direct invite, team invite link
    * External users: LDAP / AD / SAML

    It will be good to have the ability to use CSV or Excel file to bulk import the users with specific formatting especially if the organization has a lot of customers and is not utilizing AD / LDAP / SSO.

  2. Prevent hashtags in code blocks from being counted as hashtags

    Whilst hashtags in code blocks are not highlighted blue and clickable, they do appear in a search for that hashtag and are treated as actualy uses of that hashtag on the back end.

    This causes issues as many code blocks inevitably have hashtags delineating comments.

    Ideally they should be ignored completely, but I reckon the behaviour should at least be consistent.

  3. Login with LDAP & SAML

    I would like to have the ability that a user can connect with LDAP and SAML. It means that the user could have two sign-in methods.
    We have a case that could be solved with this new feature.

  5. Allow bot accounts to create webhooks

    It'd be great if in the integrations you could assign a bot account ownership of a webhook.

  6. Make the user inactive when the user does not belong to a team

    By default, when a user connects to Mattermost, the user gets the "active" status even if the user does not belong to a team.
    Is it possible set the status to "inactive" when the user does not yet belong to a team ?

  7. Make history of last channels with part of last message on CTRL+K window

    Make history of last channels with part of last message on CTRL+K window. Because when you have many chat channels, it becomes difficult to navigate between them and remember where was your last important conversation.

  8. Desktop app: Add Change status option to Taskbar tray

    In Windows, when you make a right-click on the notification tray icon, it would be nice to add a "Change status" option to switch easily between online, away, or busy.

  9. 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

  10. Combine messages from same user into one message

    This was completed before:

    https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/8684005-unite-messages-of-the-same-user

    But it looks like it only works in the full view when the left blue sidebar with channels is showing, not when the window is smaller and hides the sidebar.

  11. Add turnkey support for Auth0 as an identity provider

    As described at https://forum.mattermost.org/t/auth0-single-sign-on/6728

    As a mattermost administrator, I want to be able to configure authentication with Auth0 as an identity provider. Auth0 supports a variety of standards, so it might be best to implement it as OpenID Connect.

  12. Support ip and mac text search

    The docs explains that:

    "IP addresses, for example 10.100.200.101, do not return results."
    (https://docs.mattermost.com/help/getting-started/searching.html#hashtags)

    I would like to be able to search on ip-strings from my messages.

  13. Add support for CSS themes

    I'm not happy with the current theme system. We can change only colors, but I would like to change a bit everything, to get something looking for instance like The Lounge:

    https://thelounge.chat/

    Things I would like to change:
    - typography
    - borders + shadow and radius
    - margins and paddings

    It would be quite easy if we could upload a piece of CSS based on a few class selectors. Like:


    .app__content {
    box-shadow: 0 0 25px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.75);
    z-index: 10;
    border-radius: 5px;
    }

  14. Have a reusable authentication link for guest accounts

    For guest accounts, right now they have to authenticate manually via credentials.

    It would be useful for the guests if there could be a link that they can use to instantly authenticate into the server.

  15. Make guest accounts expire after a set period of time

    Currently guest accounts are permanent until removed by the admins.

    It would be more convenient and secure if guest accounts have an automatic expiry date after a certain period of time.

  16. Have the option to enable 2FA authentication only for certain IP ranges

    Currently when we enable 2FA authentication, it is either enabled for all users or not at all, without any option to have a more granular approach.

    It would be great if we can enable 2FA authentication only for specific IP ranges based on the configurations of the admins.

  18. There should a 'Buzz' for alert

    There should be a 'Buzz' to alert the other user. Like, Spark, Yahoo.

    Sometimes we have messaged to another user. But user is busy on another task. He/She missed the messages which is very important.

    In this case, the user should have a 'Buzz' button or shortcut for alert to someone. I hope everyone knows about the importance of 'Buzz'. :)

  19. Better Upgrade Notification for Old Desktop App

    As of now, we do not have a clear warning message to indicate that a desktop client has compatibility issue (old version) with the latest Mattermost Server version.

    it will be a good idea to have a message (pop up) that detects the desktop client version and remind them to upgrade it to the latest version if it is at least 1.x version behind the current one.

  20. Plugin hook for channel header, title and purpose change.

    I would like to add a string to the header and purpose every time it is changed via a plugin, but this is currently not possible as there is no hook for channel metadata in the plugin API.
