Chat / Post search results sortable by person, date, attachments, etc.

Albert 2 years ago in Navigation • updated by mike.walzl 2 months ago 4

One of the main draws of Ryver is the unlimited storage of past Chats and Posts. But what good are they if you can't find them when you need them? I'd like a nice little search results interface that lets me filter or sort the search results. In effect, searching WITHIN the search results.

Notification when someone/ other people else is/are typing in the chat.

Joseph Hause 1 year ago in Chat • updated 1 year ago 2

Just a "Bob and Steve are typing" at the bottom of the chat to let the other people know that the person is actually responging.

Allow grouping of members

Austin Best 1 year ago in Misc • updated 9 months ago 6

Each user should be able to create groups in their list. If i have 100 people in my list, it would be EXTREMELY helpful to be able to group these people by department. Sales, Support, etc instead of having a never ending list. Being able to expand/collapse these would be ideal as well.

Eddy Bot /todo and /reminder functions please!

theceowarrior 2 years ago in Integrations • updated by Jerry 12 months ago 3

A to-do list and personal reminders are a must for me. I use these two functions currently with Slack's in-house bot daily. It keeps everything i need to know in one central place. These two functions and the Google Drive integration are the only reasons I haven't fully switched over from Slack. Looking forward to growing with you!!

Add autoresponses from eddy for specific inputs

Scott S 2 years ago in Integrations • updated by jeff 1 year ago 5

In your competitors application they allow you to setup their bot to auto-respond with custom responses to custom inputs.


e.g.

Scott: listofservers

bot: one.com | two.com | three.com


My team used that feature heavily, and it would be great if it could be mirrored here.

Custom slash commands

Jon 1 year ago in Integrations • updated by ryang 4 weeks ago 4

The ability to create new /commands which would be seamlessly incorporated with the built-in set. For example, you might set up a command with parameters that takes the form (say):

/trello [task name] @[person] +[tag]

which would invoke a web service (provided by the user) which in this case would create a trello task in a board related to the chat forum, and assign user and label.


It would be useful to be able to initiate outbound integrations manually in this way, as a complement to automatic integrations (webhooks), while being much easier to set up than scraping tools (hubot).


Perhaps there's a configuration page in Ryver that lets you define the URL and parameters for the web service, or perhaps it might work in a similar way to the Trello "powerup" function (very flexible, and worth a look on developers.trello.com).

Option to improve visibility of notifications

Andreas 2 years ago in Notifications • updated by Andrew Malcolm 8 months ago 4

Since a lot of us are using Ryver in a work environment sound is often not an option. So I have noticed that messages often goes unoticed not sure what the main problem is here maybe it's not visible enough, maybe it less noticeable with a multi screen setup.


Either way some options to make notifications more visible would be nice, some ideas:

  • Allow change of popup duration
  • Allow changing looks of popup
  • Enable more incessant blinking for new messages
  • Allow bringing Ryver to foreground upon notification
  • Allow systray flashing on notification
  • Allow notification to be sent as email if message is not read withing a set amount of time (could be useful for other reasons as well)
  • Allow execution of a command upon receiving a notification (related separate topic)

Integrated ability to stream Tweets and Google Alerts to chat room

jeff 2 years ago in Chat • updated by ryang 4 weeks ago 8

Would like to be able to watch particular Twitter users or keywords, as well as certain Google Alerts, by having them stream directly into a Forum or Team chat room. Would like to be able to do this as a feature native to Ryver, rather than needing to use a third-party service such as Zapier.

Ryver localization / internationalization

Ondřej Hudeček 2 years ago in Settings • updated by Jose 3 weeks ago 5

Hello guys, I appreciate your work, I am glad our small team based in Czechia will have a communication platform for "affordable" price ;)


I hope you had started Ryver development with future internationalization in mind and would not have problems adding more languages to your app in future. We are just fine with English, but maybe one day when you start adding languages I will gladly help you with translation to Czech :-) I believe that is a load of your mind, right? :))


I wish you all best and thank you for both being smart and brave and giving Ryver to us.


Ondrej

single sign on / SSO

Roy Nasser 2 years ago in Misc • updated by jeff 19 hours ago 11

Add the option of integrating with Google Apps or other providers of authentication for small businesses so we dont need to create all accounts/disable them manually, etc and to make things easier for users to not need to remember too many identities.

Restrict access to uploaded files, now they are downloadable freely from the internet.

Dime Nastov 1 year ago • updated by Computers for Schools Yukon 10 months ago 7

Hi Ryvers!

You have created the most useful communication tool we have ever tested and kudos for making it free!

We have two major concerns:

  • Can’t install it on premise.
  • Uploaded files go to Amazon cloud and are accessible by simply sharing the link even to people that are not members or guests to our Ryver organization.

Solving either of these concerns would resolve the other – if we had on-premise installation we could host our files locally, and if the uploaded files were encrypted or hosted in directories that are not publicly accessable from the internet we would not have issue with Ryver not being on-premise.

I would propose two types of solution that would not require on-premise installation:

  • A quick and dirty fix in the form of a checkbox that allows the administrator to disable all file uploads for everyone (at least untill the second solution is implemented).
  • Some sort of cookie or session authetication that would allow file download from the amazon storage only if the user is currently logged onto our Ryver. This can be further extended to special group file access but I understand that that can take some more time to develop.

You have made communicating and sharing ideas and files so easy that I am sure I would not be able to put forward policies on which files should and shouldn’t be shared in Ryver, so why limit people when we can make it secure and let them communicate freely.

I wish you all the positive energy in the universe and I hope you get the success you deserve!

Allow multi-window interface which supports pop-outs for teams, chats, posts.

Stephanie Henyard 2 years ago in Desktop • updated by Ken Lenoir 3 months ago 10

Support a window pop-out feature for teams, forums, DMs, posts in the Desktop versions. For our users that are constantly going back and forth between teams, DMs, Posts they'd greatly prefer the ability to have separate windows for each area/team they're working on. The main Ryver window would remain the same, the pop-out would let users focus on that one area. Services I'm familiar with that do something similiar include Evernote, Mac Notes, and Mac Messages.

Feature to tag teamates for use as custom @mention

Andreas 2 years ago in Notifications • updated by Felixvd 2 days ago 6

It would be nice to have the ability to add tags to teammates, for example I could add a tag for all guests when working with consultants and then when you need to ask any of them a question I can notify those specific users by typing @guest-tag. When teams get a bit larger it gets a bit inconvenient to @mention all the concerned teammates.


I was thinking that this should be on a team basis but maybe it could be done on the user profile so that it could be used in multiple teams as a tag likely is connected to who you are. Although your role could be different in different teams so that could pose a problem (maybe both features would be better?).
