  1. Report duplicate AD/LDAP information rather than setting usernames to random strings every hour

    When the AD/LDAP User Filter is too permissive, multiple user objects with the same Email Attribute may be returned. When this happens, and the Username Attribute is not present on the returned value, Mattermost may reset the username of the existing user with the same email address to a random string. This repeats every 60 minutes (or whatever the Synchronization Interval is set to).

    For example, if two LDAP objects are returned:
    { userclass=contact, email=myusername@example.com }
    { userclass=user, sAMAccountName=myusername, email=myusername@example.com }

    In this case, Mattermost may cause username@example.com's account to have its user id changed to a…

  2. Ability to search all content (FOIA)

    Sorry if this is already a feature (I'm a Mattermost noob) but I haven't found a way of doing this yet...

    If we are going to implement this, we WILL need a way to search all content (Public/Private channels, Direct messages and Archived) for legal queries!

    This is a basic requirement of all software we implement within Government!

    Note: I am currently using the Team edition as a trial, so maybe it is a feature in the Enterprise version??

  3. Make "public channels" heading clickable

    On the desktop web interface, the "public channels", "private channels", and "direct messages" headings are not clickable. If you want to join a channel, you have to look for the less prominent "More..." link at the bottom of the list. Meanwhile, at the top of the list, the "+" icon creates a new channel.

    Given that joining a channel is a much more common operation than creating a new channel, I feel like it should be given higher billing, with a click target at the top of the list instead of at the bottom of the list (or maybe in…

  4. Invite users ignoring white list

    We are using mattermost at our university and have a whitelist set-up so only people from our university can join. However some teams have indicated they want to cooperate with others who are not officially affiliated with our university and thus have no university e-mail address.

    We would like an option for sysadmins to invite these users to the server.

  5. Google MFA Authenticator subject should be the URL not just "Mattermost"

    Summary

    When using "Scan barcode" to automatically configure Google Authenticator for MFA the subject is always "Mattermost".

    Steps to reproduce

    1. Enable LDAP.
    2. Enable Multi-factor authentication.
    3. When a user scans the barcode to configure Google Authenticator the subject of the account is always Mattermost.
    4. If you use couple of instances of Mattermost (example test+prod) you can't distinguish which code to use and can't login to Mattermost.

    Expected behavior

    1. The subject of the account should be the url of the Mattermost instance you are configuring MFA for.

  6. Improve channel notification warning

    Right now, there's a default ping warning for @channel mentions, which is great (https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/18607111-confirm-with-ping-warning-before-sending-all-eve). However, some channels use @channel a lot and want to disable the warning, but this leads to new users not learning how impactful @channel is.

    I propose to expand the setting (https://docs.mattermost.com/administration/config-settings.html#show-channel-and-all-confirmation-dialog), so it includes options to show the warning "first time each day" and/or "once" per user. This allows a nice middle ground between educating users and getting in the way.

  7. Open/View any type of files within built-in applications

    Also we need an ability to open any type of files within built-in mobile applications without the need of previously downloading file. For example: one chat member sends a “.docx” file to the group chat, other members can open this file directly by tapping the link once and choose an application to open it

  8. Allow interactive message button clicks to edit buttons on message

    Currently, when a user clicks on an interactive message button, MM sends a request to a remote web server with some information. When the server responds, it can send in a Message json blob, but this does not allow you to change the buttons on the message.

    For example, if I were making a poll integration, there might be vote buttons, and after voting, I might update the button message to thank the user, and present them with the options to see the results or hide the message. Currently this is not possible.

  9. Allow custom emojis to appear in default dimensions

    Hey guys,

    I really like the product, would be possible to display the custom emojis in their default size? Similar the way we post a picture with a direct link in a conversation. Would be nice to have not only the default emoji sizes (I'm aware of the possibility to use # to make the gifs and pictures smaller/bigger), but if we could add and save them in a larger state. Currently any meme which has writings on it can not be seen well, and we know that memes=life. Thank sin advance!

  10. Remove team name restriction

    Please remove the restriction for team names, because our company name starts with a number and we would like to have our first team to be named like our company name (name and URL).

    This seems to be possible in the "GitLab Mattemost Team Edition" but not in the "Mattermost Enterprise Edition".

  11. Disallow account creation using specified email domains

    "Restrict account creation to specified email domains" requires a list of "good" domains. But i need to disallow some domains. e.g. hotmail.*

    we don't want users to use some freemail-domains. especially ALL hotmail domains (hotmail.de, hotmail.com, hotmail.fr, ...)

  13. Separate "Favorite channels" and "Favorite users"

    The new "Favorite channels" feature interleaves channels and users. It would be better to separate out "Favorite users", the same way Channels and Direct Messages are separate.

  14. Support Android's central account system

    Every time I start Mattermost, it asks me for url and account info, with no option to save it. Please use Android's Account backend to save login information.

  15. "Voiced" channel mode like IRC

    Sometimes (especially in open source development) public and private are not granular enough distinctions. I'd like to be able to set a public channel as "voiced" where only certain users can post messages, but everyone can read them.

    This is similar to IRC, and is extremely useful for meetings held publicly, but where the only voiced participants are members of the project leadership.

  16. add anchors to /help/* docs

    Many "normal" users have problems writing markdown when chatting.
    For example, my friend don't know how to add "In-line Images".
    So, I want to send him a link to "In-line Images" section at https://chat.ohze.net/help/formatting
    But I can't because "In-line Images" is not an anchor like, ex https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#stage-1-pm-review (auto added by github for headings in a markdown document)

  17. Disable notifications functionality for defined period of time

    As a user I want to deactivate Mattermost notifications in my windows desktop application for a defined period of time. After this period the notifications will be shown as before.
    I can predefine in the period in the setings.
    I would like to activate this function by right clicking on the system tray icon and choose the action.

  18. Interactive action buttons

    Since Interactive Action Buttons are supported (4.2) it would be nice to support different button styles like in Slack and emoticons as text replacement for the buttons. I think this could enhance the overal look and feel of this new feature.
