Allow other users to edit a Post on a team

jeff 2 years ago in Posts • updated by Matt Golman 3 months ago 7

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.

Read receipt

Tony 2 years ago in Misc • updated by jeff 1 year 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

Bookmark or "Favorite" a chat, comment or post

jeff 2 years ago in Misc • updated by Ben 4 months ago 7

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.

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

Roy Nasser 2 years ago in Misc • updated by info 2 months ago 14

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 1 year 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.

Sticky Posts to Chat Channels

Oli Chance 2 years ago in Chat • updated by jeff 2 years ago 2

We often find ourselves forgetting/losing track of important posts because they're off in the separate 'Posts' tab rather than right there in the chat channel. As such, a feature that allowed posts (or even just a single post) to be stickied to the top of the chat window would be really useful.
It might be useful to make this an admin-only feature/add an option to only allow admins to do this.

Voice Messages

jeff 2 years ago in Chat • updated by Computers for Schools Yukon 1 year ago 5

It would be great if we could record a voice message and send it as a chat message. In the app, the chat message would show that there is an audio file and allow you to click to listen to it. Kind of like a mini MP3 embed.

Mobile push notifications unreliable

Cliff 2 years ago in Mobile • updated by anonymous 3 months ago 18

For my users, we've been having significant iissues with the mobile notifications in the Ryver app. We will be away from our desk for the weekend but still not get mobile alerts. I've heard from Android devices but I'm not sure about iOS because we don't have many.


Also, I have noticed that you have to actually have the app open and running in the background for it to work if it will send notifications at all.


I have in app and regular notifications enabled, but is there ssomething I'm doing wrong? Thank you.

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

JP A TOCNIC 2 years ago in Misc • updated by Alejandro Castillon 1 year ago 5

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

Notification keywords

neil.bobkowski 4 months ago in Notifications 0

Allow users to define keywords for notifications.  This would be a mirror of Slack's "My Keywords" ability within the Notifications settings.  Essentially a user can define a list of keywords (such as "emergency").  Then anytime that word is used in a Forum or Topic the users gets a notification.

Recurring Tasks (Task Manager Feature Requests)

Corvin Adkins 8 months ago in Misc • updated by kjkolb 3 weeks ago 4

Have the ability to have tasks that reoccur at intervals (which can be set either as a fixed date or variable 'smart' date') be part of the task manager.  Example: take out trash every week on Friday (this would be considered a variable 'smart date'), Go Grocery Shopping on the 15th of every month (a fixed date).

Eddy Bot /todo and /reminder functions please!

theceowarrior 2 years ago in Integrations • updated by Jerry 1 year 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!!

LaTeX extension to markdown

Alexei 1 year ago in Chat • updated by anonymous 4 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.
