Synchronize notifications between desktop and phone

Andreas 2 years ago in Notifications • updated by jeff 2 years ago 1

When I read a message on desktop I would be nice if the notification on the phone was canceled and vice versa.


Hashtag auto-complete

jeff 2 years ago in Misc • updated by martin 8 months ago 3

When typing a #hashtag in a chat, post or comment, would like to see an auto-complete pop-up showing existing hashtags that match the text being typed. This will help prevent similar or mis-spelled hashtags.


Add a "Director" or "Owner" role for Ryver Accounts to manage Admin accounts

Nathan Joel Waters 2 years ago in Admin • updated by ChrisD 1 year ago 8

Currently there is only the elevated "admin" accounts. For some communities that may be fine, but for many, there needs be at least one more higher account for managing admins. This allows the Account to be managed by multiple individuals, the admins, but ensures that ownership of the account is retained by select, trusted individuals. A teammate and I tested this out and though I had created the account, as another admin, he was able to revoke my admin rights and deactivate my account.

Search of uploaded files

jeff 2 years ago in Misc • updated by Alejandro Castillon 12 months ago 3

Would like uploaded PDFs and other files to be indexed in Ryver search, so that I can search for a word or phrase and it will be found in a PDF that I attached to a Post.

Provide a "Last Seen" Date/Time in user profile cards.

jeff 2 years ago in Misc • updated by Austin Best 7 months ago 2

Would like to be able to see when a user was last seen online in the app. For some people, it is obvious because they create lots of content. For others, would be nice to know if they're just being passive, or if they haven't even logged in for a week.

Ability to customize app color scheme

Orlando Sánchez 1 year ago in Settings • updated by jeff 1 year ago 1

The Ryver web/desktop app have both a nice color scheme. Anyway, as the users all are different, the ability to change using a few color sets or even fully customize app colors for all the items (for example top bar is blue, buttons are turquoise, sidebar is gray by default) would be a big step on making the product a universal one.

Allow other users to edit a Post on a team

jeff 2 years ago in Posts • updated by Scott W. Greenwald 4 months ago 6

Please add an option to give other users edit rights on a post, allowing me to create a post, but have others collaborate directly by editing the post. The options would be to allow Team Admins to edit the post, or all Team Members.

Convert teams & forums between each other (private -> public & vice-versa

Roy Nasser 2 years ago in Misc • updated by sunil soni 3 months ago 11

I realize this may not be an easy task, but its something that after a long time slack finally implemented and it is useful more frequently than I would have thought...

Often we are discussing something in a private group and end up invitng so many people it would make more sense to have it as an open channel... Having the history "copied" over, is something essential however...

The opposite also happens in some cases where a public channel starts taking on a strategic twist, and we want to segreagate some content from teh entire team be it for a long time or just temporarily (for example when we do bugathons/hackathons, we start with a public channel, and then convert to private when devs want to just get their heads down... This isnt the best example but its one I've come accross)...

This functionality would also be very useful in importing from Slack... I have discussed/proposed a possible workflow that would allow us to import private & public channels from slack instead of the public ones only as per today's limitation.

The proposed idea is:

- Admin disables all users on Slack

- Admin (or group of admins) convert all private channels to public and rename them with a prefix (ex: priv_****) or something in order to keep track of them

- Admin runs import to Ryver

- [Missing ryver functionality proposed>>] At this point, in Ryver, the Admin can make all the priv_*** channels private, and rename them appropriately

- After doing this, the Admin can then invite the users into Ryver.

- Migration completed :)

I assume there would be some manual work (in slack: renaming, making public, and then in ryver: rnaming, making private), but I would argue this is something that most admins would be willing to do... at least for groups that matter... We have some very large private groups, and its one of the reasons we dont migrate from Slack paid into Ryver yet... (This and admin restrictions for group creation)... Anyways, I'm not sure how complex this may be from a data standpoint within Ryver, but it would help with the 2 areas... Importing & General communication flow...


Generate "Invite URL" for inviting users

jeff 2 years ago in Admin • updated by Stefanus “HowlinWulf” Fourie 10 months ago 11

Would like to generate a URL that can be shared on a web page or via email, which people can click to join my Ryver account. Would like to have control over which email domains are allowed.


Provide option to hide email address from User Profile and User lists

jeff 2 years ago in Settings • updated by Computers for Schools Yukon 8 months ago 10

1. Allow users to specify whether their email address should be shown in their Profile and user lists.

2. Allow the Admin to force hiding of email address for all users

Read receipt

Tony 1 year ago in Misc • updated by jeff 10 months ago 5

I would like to see if/when an item has been read. In a private chat this would be the day/time that the message was read; in a forum perhaps implemented as a "seen by #" count that could be expanded by clicking to list those that have viewed the message/post/reply

LaTeX extension to markdown

Alexei 8 months ago in Chat • updated by Matthew Davis 5 months ago 2

It would be awesome to have the ability to include inline and displayed maths in chat and posts.

This is becoming a common extension to markdown in academic writing and would set Ryver apart and give you an edge in that market. Currently only Rocket.chat implements this nicely (there's a poorer implementation in Mattermost but it's mostly nonexistent in other apps). There's two well developed javascript libraries already to handle the typesetting: MathJax and KaTeX.

Group teams, forums or users in nav bar (like a folder structure)

JP A TOCNIC 2 years ago in Misc • updated by Alejandro Castillon 12 months ago 5

My suggestion is that may have sub privates teams like a sub-folders.
A big difference


Bookmark or "Favorite" a chat, comment or post

jeff 2 years ago in Misc • updated by Stephanie Henyard 2 years ago 3

The current Reminder feature on Posts/Comments can be used as a poor man's bookmarking mechanism, but would prefer an explicit way to bookmark both posts/comments AND particular chat messages, and have an easy way to get to them in a "bookmarks" or "favorites" list.

Custom user-centric tagging would be a bonus as an extension of this feature...allowing the user to put a #tag on any chat, post or comment that is just for that user's reference in future searches.
