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 inside the Ryver application via the Send Feedback link in the top drop-down menu in the nav bar.
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.
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.
I've been travelling for the last couple of weeks, which has given me the opportunity to test Ryver in a variety of connections at a variety of speeds.
Unfortunately, it performs very badly on anything less than around a 10Mb connection, and even then seems very prone to dropping out, constantly reconnecting, and leaving important messages with the dreaded Red Triangle of Did-Not-Send, leaving it functionally unusable on all but the most stable of connections.
As such, I've had to resort to Skype, Slack and other more stable messaging services, when I'd much rather be able to rely on Ryver throughout.
Would it be possible to look at improving stability on lower connection speeds? As ever, apologies if this has already been mentioned/has already been addressed, but I think this is a hugely important issue for those of us who aren't lucky enough to be on superfast connections all the time.
Would like to have a single Ryver login that gives me access to all of my accounts. If I could do ad-hoc communications with others via a Global Directory, that would be a great bonus!
Would like to have an Outlook plugin that supports sharing an email to Ryver as a "Shared Email" Post, allowing my team to discuss the email in the comments section. It would work similarly to how the current Ryver Chrome Extension works with Gmail.
- Currently there's no way to assign a task to a User when creating a Task in Personal Tasks or in Direct Messages. You can do that only from Teams and Forums (VERY BAD!!!). You should be able to assign tasks to any users from ANYWHERE on Ryver.
- The Ryver /task command only brings up the task creation form popup. It would be much better if using the /task command you could:
- Assign the task to one of more @users and have the asignees already appear in the task creation form once you press Enter.
- Write the Subject of the Task and have it already appear in the task creation form once you press Enter.
- Write the due date in Plain English (Friday 11:35 am, in 2 days, in 3 weeks, in 4 hours, etc) and have the due date already assigned in the task creation form once you press enter.
- Have the user pick a default due date (could be, for example, "Tomorrow 9 am" or "Tomorrow same time" and whenever no date info is entered in the command, have Ryver auto-assign the default due date.
- Once a Task is created, Ryver only gives a confirmation that such task was created if it was created in the user's own chat section and not when a task is created in a team of forum. And the confirmation is not editable. Instead, confirmations should:
- ALWAYS appear wherever you are. If on another users chat, it should appear but stating "only visible to you". In Forums or Teams it could appeare normally so everybody sees it.
- Should have the option to edit the task. You should be able to quickly assign to other users, change title, change description, change due date, etc, etc.
Examples of a very useful Ryver Task creation command would be:
- /task @user1 in 3 days SujectOfTheTask
- /task @user1 @user2 in 4 hours SubjectOfTheTask
- /task @user3 next Thursday SubjectOfTheTask
- /task @user4 the first Monday of next month SubjectOfTheTask
I move frequently in and out of network range and switch between cable and wi-fi.
Very often I would return to network range and find the desktop client telling me it is unable to connect and I need to press connect in order to actually connect. Other messengers that I have would "know" that I am already online and will auto-reconnect. It would be nice if Ryver could do the same, otherwise one would stay offline for long periods although connected to the Internet...
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.
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.
In our Ryver community (ibmioss) we have a lot of chats that get promoted to posts and that is very confusing if you started a chat and it was promoted to a post by somebody else (you wonder "where'd it go?"). I then need to go to the posts tab and start looking. Instead it would be good if an existing chat could be marked as a post and that would start a form of indentation within the chat pane. This means the post tab would go away. This would also necessitate a "Filter" feature on the chat pane (maybe refactored to not be named chat, because posts would also be there) that would allow just posts to be displayed.
I don't want to derail this feature that's already planned. But I did want to convey that the current approach is not immediately intuitive (and even after understanding the feature I still get lost).
Similar to how flowdock allows. They give a custom email address for your flowdock account for every discussion. you can send from any email address and it will create a post
