  1. Have the ability to jump directly to the first message in a channel

    When a user needs to scroll up through a lot of history, it can take a lot of time and effort. It would be much better if there was a button or ability letting users to jump directly to the first message in a channel.

  3. Support multiple AD/LDAP domains

    Currently Mattermost supports AD/LDAP integration to a single AD/LDAP domain. The proposal is for the integration to support multiple AD/LDAP domains.

    We have an open ticket for it in our backlog, and this feature proposal is to gauge how popular this feature would be among our user base.

    https://mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/MM-5751

    Note that you can currently configure Mattermost deployments with multiple AD/LDAP domains using a forest structure: https://docs.mattermost.com/deployment/sso-ldap.html#configure-ad-ldap-deployments-with-multiple-domains

  4. Option in a channel: force view pinned posts

    In some channels some messages are ‘must read’...
    An option ‘I have read this one’ would be great then.
    It would also be nice to be able to reorder the pinned posts.

  5. Function 'Automatically Close Direct Messages' shouldn’t close unread Messages

    The function should only close already read messages. If a user is on vacation and comes after ten days back to work, the user should see all unread messages in the sidebar even if the unread message is older than seven days.

  6. one file installation on hosted servers

    The installation should be only depending on a ftp-access to a hosted server storing data in flat files. Second best would be mysql connection.

  7. Miniature (icon) Mugshot in leftmost Direct Messages pane, shown before name

    In the “Direct Messages” leftmost pane show a miniature mugshot, in addition to the persons name shown. The same mugshot /image as shown in message conversation list view.

    Sometimes the name is not know or remembered, but the face is not easily forgotten (unless your blind) and might be recognized, when initiating a conversation.

    My list contain about 100 developers, many with similarly sounding names and it would ease when trying to find the right developer.

    When having many contacts often the names becomes very similar i.e John A Smith, John B Smith, John C Smith.

    Which of those is…

  8. Enable MFA reset through the system console

    It would be nice if there were a way to reset someone's MFA configuration from the System Console instead of having to use the command line tool. For large teams, MFA devices are lost fairly frequently so it's burdensome to have to use the command line tool each time.

  10. Parse channel search string to allow more powerful queries

    I use the channel switcher with Ctrl+K a lot. Recently I joined two groups that have some overlapping members:

    Group X has members aa, bb, me. Group Y has members aa, cc, me.

    Now, it is quite tedious to search for them efficiently. If I search for "bb" and "cc" I will hit direct messaging with either of the two. And if I search for "aa" it is even worse: I get the two groups, plus direct messaging.

    I suggest to allow for a search expressions as follows: "a b", "a c". I expect this to find group channels where…

  11. Check which channels are being actively used by the company (Latest comment date)

    My company has multiples teams and more than 20 channels in each of them. I am a new employee, and I have to join each channel to check if they are being used looking for the latest comment date.

    Is there a feature to order channels by the latest comment date or to filter the channel list to have only the ones that are being used?

  12. Desktop app: Help menu should be accessible by keyboard under Windows

    On the Windows client, the "Help" menu is not accessible by keyboard. This is because both the "History" and the "Help" menu have the same accelerator letter "H" assigned, so Alt+H opens the "History" menu (presumably because it comes first). Furthermore, the menu bar doesn't follow the normal Windows UI convention that you can toggle keyboard focus from/to the menu bar by presing just the Alt key, and that you can navigate between menus using the left/right arrow keys when keyboard focus is on the menu or menu bar, thereby preventing the other way the "Help" menu could be accessed…

  13. Add badge for new messages that's visible in a pinned tab.

    When you've pinned a tab on your browser the badge that appears to show new messages within the client isn't visible. At best you have to hover to see a (*) that denotes new messages.

    There should be an immediately visible badge on a pinned tab for unread messages.

  14. Have OS X client integrate with native system text services

    In all other OS X apps, including Chrome, a variety of standard system services will be available to use with the selected text. For example, looking up the selected word in the dictionary or searching for it on the web. Users can also install custom text services systemwide.

  15. Desktop app: Minimize to tray when clicking on the icon

    Currently, we have to close the windows in order to minimize to tray.

    But a lot of similar apps, like Riot, allow minimizing to tray by clicking on the tray icon, which is much more convenient.

    Please consider adding this.

  17. Add "edited by admin" when admin edit someone's message

    Team admin can edit users messages (when option is available) but it can be usefull to specify when it's not the user himself that edit, but an admin.

    Proposal: add "(edited by admin)" instead of "(edited")

  18. Filter preview (on the server)

    It would be nice if there was a server side filter for the preview URLs so, that for some URLs where it doesn't make sense, the preview is not shown at all. For example when posting a GitHub URL, the preview will likely show GitHub's 404 page, which doesn't add anything to the conversation.
    Since this is caused by the Mattermost server not being able to log in with GitHub, it makes sense to have this as a server administration setting.
