Custom User Status Messages & Changes to DM List Display

Stephanie Henyard 2 years ago in Settings • updated by tcultech 8 months ago 6

A user currently has 4 options for their status: Available, Away, DND, and Offline. Please add custom message descriptions to these options. Perhaps I am Available but working remotely. Or I'm in a meeting, or on a phone call. Our staff rely heavily on custom descriptions with our current messaging platform, and this is a major loss when switching to Ryver.

Building on this request, please make a few changes to the DM List display:

  • Allow filtering of DM by who's online
  • Display the custom status messages descriptions in the DM List
  • Collapse the DM list into fewer lines. Maybe the @ name is on the same line as the display name.

single sign on / SSO

Roy Nasser 2 years ago in Misc • updated by Stephanie Henyard 2 months ago 13

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.

Notifications count should show Unread Quantity even if they are not new

Ben 4 months ago in Notifications • updated by jeff 3 months ago 1

Right now, the Notifications button on the Sidebar shows only the quantity of NEW notifications.  But once a user clicks on it and starts checking notification, that number disappears and there's no idea of how many notifications are still unread.

I think that the number of unread notifications should always be visible and be automatically reduced once a user starts actually reading each notification.


Support for two-factor authentication.

Mxx 2 years ago • updated by Sean Johnson 2 years ago 3

I would like to secure my/my team's accounts with more than just username/password. Please add support for any number of various two-factor authentication solutions.

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

Stephanie Henyard 2 years ago in Desktop • updated by Ken Lenoir 7 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.

Nesting of Group Posts

Wayne 2 years ago in Posts • updated by jeff 2 years ago 4

Replies to a post show up in the order submitted. This can make it hard to follow along, even if someone includes text from the previous post. It would be useful to me if the replies were nested under their parent; being collapsible would also be nice.


Ability to sort unread notifications by oldest or most recent, as required

Ben 4 months ago in Navigation 0

Right now, the default sort for notifications is most recent first.  I usually have by default only the UNREAD notifications.  But when I have too many, it takes time to scroll down to the bottom.  

I would like to have a button to quickly sort by oldest one first or by most recent first, as the situation requires.


Ability for Admin to Reverse Chat or Topic Message Order

Ben 5 months ago in Chat 0

Although most people in the world are used to the most recent message appearing below the last one (on the bottom), it could be more efficient to show the latest message above the last one.  Would avoid a lot of scrolling down.


Permissions for deleting/editing messages!!!!

Austin Best 1 year ago in Admin • updated 2 months ago 12

I have not found this option if it exists, but if it doesn't this is a MUST. In the last week we had an issue with an employee who threatened another employee, luckily the "victim" took a screenshot of the interaction because the "bully" decided to delete all the messages. THERE NEEDS TO BE A WAY TO CONTROL WHO CAN DELETE MESSAGES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Either on a user by user (preferred) or user level (Guest/Member/Admin) basis

This is such an easy feature, please dont make this take a year to implement. PLEASE.

For editing, this can also be permissions based or show a "changed" log for what was changed in the post.


Mac Fullscreen Support

Godfrey Hendrix 1 year ago in Desktop • updated by anonymous 3 months ago 1

Implement fullscreen functionality on the Mac app. Right now clicking the green icon only makes app maximize to the screen (but does not enable fullscreen mode).

Assign Tasks to a User not through a Team or Forum

Ben 4 months ago • updated by jeff 3 months ago 2

There's another product Idea that has this idea as part of it.


However, I think this specific request merits its own Topic.

Currently, Ryver doesn't allow me to assign tasks to users directly, unless it's through a Team or Forum.  

Many times I need to assign a task to a user, but I prefer not to do it through a Team or Forum.  I might not want to add more tasks to the whole team.  Or it might be a task unrelated to any team.  Or it might be a task that I want to stay private between me and the user.

As a user, I want to have the ability to create a task and assign it to WHOMEVER I WANT.

I think this is something that Ryver can easily solve.

And, if Ryver wants to "foster collaboration" as they call it, it can let Admins decide if users must assign tasks to other users only through teams/forums or can do it directly.

Import Tasks from Microsoft Outlook

Ben 4 months ago • updated by anonymous 3 months ago 1

Many Millions of users use Outlook and many of those use Tasks on Outlook.  Would be nice if we could import all of those to Ryver.


Ryver Integration with GURU

Ben 5 months ago in Integrations 0

We use Guru (https://www.getguru.com) for Knowledge Management.  Slack allows us to use /Guru and ask for anything we need to know (/Guru SearchTerm).  We would like RYVER to have that capability too.


Create a role of 'Forum Admin'

ChrisD 2 years ago in Admin 0

I see many ideas being submitted around increasing Admin functionality, but this one is quite specific. As a 'super-admin' I'd like to give rights to a Member to manage their own Forum, and have the same rights over their Forum as I have over all Forums. ie. Be able to sticky posts, edit other peoples' posts, delete posts, within a single Forum.
