Welcome to the Ryver Product Ideas forum! We pride ourselves on constantly improving Ryver based on customer feedback. Here, you can view and vote on the current list of feature ideas, or add your own idea if you don't see it.
For immediate support, go to https://support.ryver.com and click the Chat tab in the lower left. You can also request help from the Send Feedback link in the top drop-down menu in the application nav bar.
If a user is part of multiple teams & forums, they likely have unpinned a number of them, and probably have notifications turned off for that team. Unless they're @ mentioned, they won't know there's new activity unless they go looking for the Teams and open each team. Please add visual indications within the Private Teams list to show which team has new activity since the user last checked that team.
When using the reply function it would be nice if the message author was included or even better would be if the quoted message was clickable so that you would scroll up to when it was sent to let you see the context. Showing the context in a popup when you move the mouse over the message would be another solution but I guess that would require more work.
Given that many people use Ryver and email together in a corporate environment, it would be great if email messages could be forwarded to Ryver users or groups.
For example, if my Ryver site was example.ryver.com and my user was martin, then someone should be able to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and it should appear in my personal chat. Similarly, if there was a group called +idle on the site, someone should be able to send a mail to email@example.com and it should appear in that group.
The post in either the personal chat or group should retain the attachments as well.
Please add the ability to select multiple chat messages to copy/paste the quote block ">"s for copy/pasting to other forums or 1 to 1 chats.
Many other chat applications have the ability to either hotkey, or click on a users name in chat to automatically insert @bob.dylan (or whomever) into the message box, then changing focus to the text box. Useful for fast replies to a user.
Preview button moves away from mouse to disable preview. Small OCD here, but somewhat annoying if formatting a large message and previewing often.
Would like to be able to configure a hotkey to start a new direct message and jump to the available people to search with a cleared search field.
i.e Mac Example - Command + N (or whatever you configure in hotkeys) - Jumps to the Direct Messages Search of Active Users with cursor in the Find Users field so I can type the persons name, then hit enter to go to the Direct Message chat with that team member.
I could not find any obvious way to cancel from replying to a chat. That is, if I've pressed the reply button, then thought better of it and decided I don't want to reply. I'm then stuck with the open reply box with no (apparent) way of cancelling out of it. Have I just missed something?
I would love for Ryver to offer a chat box on page just like FB. My team manages a lot of tasks every day and we work on a fast pace basis and on schedule. Honestly, it's a little annoying to exit a task window just to click on a direct message and then reply. How about while I'm on that window/task I can also reply to a direct message? That way it saves time and lessens the number of clicks I have to take, time saver and more efficient.
So far, Ryver is fairly easy to use, and I am still getting the hang of it. I would love to explore it more and have a "chat box" added soon.
A common problem I've observed on Slack is that people do not initially realise that they can edit or delete their own posts. In Ryver this is arguably even more obscure: few people (outside tech circles) understand that a ⋮ signifies a submenu. It's a poor UX convention.
The edit action is probably the one most needed (certainly more frequently than 'Create Task'), so why not put this on the floating menu, rather than on the submenu? Maybe have the hover menu appear for a few seconds over a message after it's submitted so that people get to know it's there? Maybe consider replacing the ⋮ with a word (e.g. 'Actions')? Maybe allow people to customise the floating menu?
