  1. Handle old browsers more gracefully

    Mattermost does not work on some old browsers (e.g. Android 4.2: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/8825).
    I don't expect the team to support these legacy browsers but currently it only displays a blank page, which can be confusing for users.

    It would be nice if Mattermost could display an user-friendly error message when the browser is not supported.

  4. windows people

    Summary
    Microsoft now supports pinning conversations within applications to the taskbar through what they call the My People API:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/contacts-and-calendar/my-people-support

    It looks like it primarily supports windows store apps/c#, so it might not be possible to do with electron/node. It's also OS-specific, which isn't really beneficial to the app as a whole.

  5. Better AWS S3 Integration

    AWS S3 is a great option and I've gotten it working using an IAM role w policies to access that specific S3 bucket. What I'm suggesting is that instead of S3 being used as just a file "dump", there could be an optional setting for "Serve content directly from S3" (as well as perhaps another option available for "serve directly using cloudfront" - which would have a notice on the extra cost).
    The idea is that instead of serving assets from the Mattermost instance itself, the objects in S3 could have presigned URL's set on them (with another setting for…

  6. add the ability to preview messages, or a larger editor in the RHB

    It would be really great to be able to have a preview of a message before it's sent. Putting a full-size, WYSIWYG-able editor available in the right-hand bar would make it easier to compose longer messages, especially if you need to reference other posts inside of Mattermost.

  7. Chatting to Golang Bot through direct message

    Hello, I have the golang bot implemented into a mattermost channel.
    It would be helpful to have an option for users to ask the bot questions in a Direct message as opposed to just a public channel.
    I feel that this would encourage users to use the bot more and help shy users as well. That way there can be some sort of privacy between users.
    Also, a way to have a log for Admins to keep track of what questions are being asked will be helpful in developing the bot further.

  8. unicode emoji to support chinese character custom emoji names

    Current behavior: User interface won't allow me to give Chinese names to emoji.

    Requested behavior:
    - Allow naming of custom emoji with Chinese characters
    - User be able to type :你好: and have the mapped custom emoji show up in chat

    Notes:
    George Goldberg suggested to enable full unicode support for custom emoji names rather than just ascii. https://pre-release.mattermost.com/core/pl/ce5wkyq1w7drxd55mjy38c1apo

  9. Toggle the visibility of bot/webhook messages

    I'd like a way to quickly hide/show bot and webhook messages in a channel. It would be easier to have conversations when the channel is regularly "spammed" by bot messages. Could be a simple button in the channel header

  10. add support for custom server storage via SSH.

    Currently the pull down menu for "File Storage System:" on /admin_console/files/storage only offers Local Storage and Amazon. I want to use my file server. So SSH access. (I guess WebDav for some people?)

    That means that you would have a third option in the pull-down that says "Custom Server (SSH)" and the fields below it would be:

    1. Username

    2a. Password OR

    2b. Paste your public RSA key here

    1. Server URL (ex - 'myfileserver.mycompany.com')

    2. SSH port (default: 22)

    3. root directory (default: ~)

  11. [PROJECT] - Yubikey Monitor (Standalone)

    Hi all,

    I've been working on setting up 2-factor authentication using my Yubikey. Yesterday I finally got it working, and decided to write the process down. I used the One Time Password Backend app (http://apps.owncloud.com/content/show.p ... ent=159196) with some minor modifications (which will be part of the next release of the app).

    Everything is documented here: http://www.sj-vs.net/two-factor-authent ... m-yubikey/

    Let me know if things are still unclear.

  12. List of Flagged Posts in Mobile Application

    It would be a good idea in mobile application to have a button that list of flagged post in channel details. To see a flagged post, it would be very difficult to seek all posts earlier.
    Thanks in advance.

  13. Add a font which is readable without Anti Aliasing

    With release v4.0 release (July 16, 2017) the ability to choose fonts was removed. The one and only font (Open Sans) is quite unreadable if Anti Aliasing is switched off. Please think about people with handicaps which cannot use Anti Aliasing because of their eyes.

    Please add at least one font (as Arial or Ubuntu from pre 4.0) or provide a simple description of how someone can do this for a local installation.

  14. Include user's language in body of outgoing slash command request

    Currently, outgoing Slash commands send in the request body information about the user like userid and username.

    However, to properly internationalize a slash command integration (such as https://github.com/jedfonner/MattermostOnFire/issues/2), the receiving system needs to know the user's specified language (from Account Settings > Display > Language).

    Please add a "user_language" field to the JSON object passed in the body of the message sent by Mattermost outgoing slash commands. This field should be populated by the user's language (e.g., en-US, es-MX, fr-CA, etc).

  15. Allow images uploaded by team members to be delivered over CDN

    For various reasons the server hosting my Mattermost instance is located in the USA however most of its users are located in Australia. Large uploads and image are quite slow to download or view. It would be convenient if an asset host could be configured to allow the uploads to be delivered via a CDN (configured and set up separately).

  16. SIP implementation

    Users should be able to sign in with a SIP account and make and receive voice calls through it and maybe even transfer it internally. It's important for customer services calls.

    Video call is only a nice-to-have feature.

    And admin needs to be able to assign a SIP account to a user.

    It should be rather easy to implement since there a lot of SIP clients out there.

  17. Allow users to adjust the display size for in-message text

    The message text is currently too small for my liking. It would be wonderful if we could allow users to adjust the display size of the text. Slack for instance lets you do this to some extent. Even a choice between 'small, medium, large, extra large' would be great. Thank you

  18. android notification priority

    Android has a notification implementation that supports priority levels. (https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/notifiers/notifications.html). This means that you can define different priorities for the notifcation. lowest means no notification and max is that you get a pop up/in from the top even in full screen apps (like a movie)

    Its very disturbing to have that pop in when you are busy with other stuff. especially in the weekend while you are not working (mattermost is in my case work related). If you look at Telegram, you can choose your priority for the notification, or at least this is possible via the settings…

  19. EE: Provide controls for creation of public and private channels at the team level

    The global channel settings aren't flexible enough create teams with differing levels of channel security. Please consider adding the public & private channel settings at the team level.

    Simplistic example:

     Team A: invite only with the creation of public rooms disabled
     Team B: public team, with the creation of public rooms enabled
     Team C: public room with the creation of public rooms disabled

  20. Daily email notification option

    I have the team version of Mattermost for a small project with friends hosted at my house. The best way to notify my group is via email, however, I can only send so many emails a month through my SMTP server. It would be nice if there was an option for sending a once a day notification added in addition to the instant, 15 min, and hourly.

    It would be also really helpful if I could set this as default for all my users and let them change it if they need to.
