  1. Add a kick/ban notification

    Whenever you're kicked/banned from a server, give the mod/owner a box to place a reason and then whenever you're kicked/banned it'll come up in a place for notifications so you know why. It's better than having to track down a mod to figure out why you were banned/kicked

  2. Switch to correct chat from notifications.

    When you click on notifications on either desktop or mobile, it should switch to that chat window where the notification originated from.

  3. Highlight Words, for Custom Notifications / Mentions

    Allow users to provide a comma separated list of words that will trigger a notification, so you will be notified if someone is talking about you without using the @mention syntax, or if you have a nickname that people often refer to you as besides your username.

    In Slack, these are called Highlight Words, and your username minus the @ is automatically one.

  4. Less intrusive notifications.

    It would be great if the program could use some notifications like the taskbar new messages, the current desktop notifications, besides getting in the way of the screen, makes me pause my work, while drawing for example, because when it appears it makes me unable to click on the screen until either the notification disappears by itself, or until I click the notification to see the message, please, fix this, it's the only thing keeping me and friends of using this program fully.

    Being able to disable the desktop notifications while still keeping the sound notification on would be a…

  5. Better Desktop Notifications

    Discord's current notification system is both buggy and lacks some options that most IM clients have as a standard feature. The biggest problem being that there is no option for audio-only notifications. You either have pop-up notifications or nothing at all.

    On top of this, pop-up notifications take priority over other active windows just to make sure it displays on top, which often interrupts what you're doing when you have the client minimized. Another annoying issue is that the pop-up creates an invisible box that's way taller than it appears in order to display multiple alerts at once, but often…

  6. Customizable Notification Sounds

    It would be great to be able to modify the sounds that are played as the notification for a given channel or conversation, either from the client level or the server level for channels

    This would allow users to be able to differentiate between chats they are receiving messages from without having to check their notifications, which is something I am increasingly finding some level of frustration with as I migrate more onto discord as a service, since I talk to a lot of people. By a bare minimum, it would be nice to know whether or not the notification…

  7. More sounds!

    We need more sounds in Discord.

    Maybe like TeamSpeak, or better ^^

    - When someone disconnected
    - When myself disconnected
    - User joint your Channel
    - User kicked/banned/leave the channel

    Some options make this "pong". but we need different sounds to know what's up. :D

  8. Taskbar icon blinking only, without notifications or sounds

    An option to only have the taskbar icon blink when there's activity, without any desktop notifications or sounds would be nice.

    To go even further, it would be great if you could set it to for example only blink when there's activity on your current server or only for @mentions. In fact the 'activity on your current server' idea could be used for notifications and sounds as well.

    In short it would be nice to have just a little more options and customization when it comes to the notifications.

  9. Option to suppress @everyone and @here for single text channels

    I think it would be nice to have an option to suppress @everyone and @here for text channels so it's the same way that suppress works for servers as a whole.

    It can be a little bit frustrating getting @everyone / @here messages from a general chat that you don't want to mute, but you still want to see important announcements on the server from another channel or vice versa.

    Just to avoid getting excess red numbers / notifications where possible.

    Perhaps it could be part of muting the channel or a separate option all together. Either works well in…

  10. Display the number of messages since you last checked a channel.

    White text is alright but a number is better.

  11. TTS events instead of Sounds

    Use TTS instead of audibles for server events, like joined channel, left channel etc.
    So instead of "Dabling" we get "Jack joined the channel".
    Could even let us create our own TTS events with replaceables, like
    "$User joined $Channel"

  12. Add an option to disable the pop-up notification of new messages

    Currently, when you get a message, you also get a pop-up. Checking the option to get notifications only when I'm mentioned didn't help with it, but that wasn't actually what I wanted, I only tried to use that because I wanted to keep the window flash and sound, but remove the pop-up. That pop-up kinda "steals" some mouse clicks by becoming the active window, which is very annoying.

  13. An area to show when/where you've been @'d.

    http://puu.sh/mjNyY/3a9d7c7b36.png Picture for reference.

    This space has nothing going on, and I haven't read anything about this space being saved for something in the future. It seems like a good idea to have a place where you can view times that you've been @'d.

    It can display the server name, time of @, and the person who @'d.

  14. Server events log in chat, maybe TTS sounds (user x was moved into channel y, user z was kicked, user q joined channel...)

    I think this would be a very useful feature to know what happens in the server when we hear the notification sounds. Most people need either a text or a sound notification for events in the server like user joining, leaving, being moved or kicked...

    It is useful in many ways which are better explained by posting these links of people who wanted a similar feature and said why they want it:

  15. clear mobile notification when read

    Automatically clear mobile notification when the message has been read. Currently the notification stays until you clear it manually even if you have read it.

  16. Notification when someone comes online

    Notifications for when your friends come online instead of constantly checking discord would be nice.

    There should also be an option to only get notifications for certain friends or certain servers.

    It would also be nice to set up the notification to let you know when someone starts playing a game.

  17. Allow users to require confirmation before mentioning everyone

    Users with roles that allow them to mention everyone (specifically those with Administrator permissions) should have the option to have the Discord client ask them if they are sure they want to send any message containing @everyone or @here. Having this feature be optional would allow it to be nonintrusive to those who do not have that worry, while being an effective measure for those in positions of power in larger servers to take to avoid upsetting users with accidental mentions.

    The way I envision it is a simple pop-up such as the one that appears when deleting messages.

  18. Have the option to have @role mentions function like @here

    Currently @role mentions function like @everyone. Sometimes we don't need to notify everyone in that role, but only the people available.

    I run a Discord for an online game, we have a dedicated questions channel. I'd love to be able to give some knowledgeable and willing users a "help/advisor" role that users in need could mention. If this functions like everyone user mentions would become too bothersome.

  19. Blocking Needs More Options

    Add several options to the block feature per-block:
    1. Block DMs
    2. Block direct mentions
    3. Block role mentions
    4. Block all messages
    5. Block only on following servers: [list of joint servers]
    6. Hide blocked message text

    I don't see why this shouldn't be a thing. It is not hard to implement and it doesn't harm anyone, only benefits those who want to block people.

  20. Notification

    1. PC: Icon for taskbar showing how many unread channels you have (Skype-like)
    2. Mobile: Silent notifications. Notifications are cool, but constant SMS-like beeping when they arrive is annoying.
