Ability to mass edit users in channels

pandapuffs_rustafied 2 years ago in Admin 0

It's a pain in the butt when we want to remove users from a channel we're archiving. Can you please have the ability to mass remove users from a channel instead of having to click into each user to remove from the channel?


Allow "Don't Send Notifications" on Topics and Tasks in the Team Notification Settings

Ben 2 years ago in Notifications 0

Right now, on the top right of any team there's an elipsis.  The first option is "Manage Team" and below there's "Notifications".  There, you can chose 3 options for Topics and the same 3 options for Tasks:

- New Topics/Tasks created
- New Topics/Tasks and replies (auto-subscribe)
- Only Topics/Tasks I'm participating in

I propose a 4th option: "Don't Send Notifications".  Especially for Tasks.

When you have a small team and few tasks, it's not a big deal to create a Task and be "Auto-Subscribed" to it, so every time there's a reply you get a notification.  However, if you create a lot of tasks for your team and you trust your team, you really don't need to get notified every time there's a reply.  Actually, you can get too many notifications which will clutter your notifications stream.


Add a Task field called "Estimated Time to Finish"

Ben 2 years ago in Misc updated 2 years ago 1

Although there are certain tasks that have a deadline, there are many more that don't.  When you have only a few tasks, it's easy to prioritize and then work on any of them.  However, when you have a lot of tasks, it would be very useful if Ryver let you guesstimate the "Estimated time to Finish" in minutes, hours, days, weeks or months and add it to a task field for that purpose.  Then you could sort by that time and quickly pinpoint small tasks that can be finished off quickly, helping you to reduce the quantity of tasks in your list.


Allow users to choose if additionally to the regular notifications, they would like to see an alert about every message reply as if it was a direct message.

Ben 2 years ago in Notifications 0

To explain it a little better, right now I can only see  a user name in BOLD in the DIRECT MESSAGES (left pane), when that user has written something to me.  I would like to have the option to also see that name in bold when that user has created a new topic or task or replied to a topic or task or mentioned me.  And when I click on some icon, next to the name (in Bold) of the user in Direct Messages, it would send me to the notifications section but filtered by only that user.  This way, I could chose which users notifications are more important to me so I can see them first.


Create a new section exclusive for Reminders

Ben 2 years ago in Notifications updated 2 years ago 1

Right now, Reminders are mixed with replies to Topics and Tasks.  I think that Reminders are more important because those were set by the users reminding themselves of something that they had to do, as opposed to some other user writing them about something.


- The system could set a default period of 7, 14 or 30 days to "purge" old notifications and reminders, letting users change the settings of those to longer periods (2 months, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year).

- Both Notifications and Reminders should be SORTABLE by date from Oldest to Newest and Newest to Oldest.


More Filter on task stream

Viktor 2 years ago in Navigation updated by Lisa Woodring 7 months ago 1

It would be nice if Ryver put filter on Task Stream as it implemented in Task Tab, Our team daily routine is go to task stream and filter "Assigned to Me" at this moment it filled with Task that already done and not done, which is bit messy... if you can filter by "Not Done" only OR by specific "Tag" it would be more productive flow


better task tracking via convert task to link, embed task id or link in chat, and/or enable task search

mski 2 years ago updated by Ben 2 years ago 1

would be great to be able to refer to tasks in conversations or external to ryver (eg in notebook or google doc) and be able to pull up that task record.  Currently we have task ids enabled but it's clumsy to retrieve a given task given its ID - right now I have to just visually scan in the task window.   Beyond this would be great to have conversations referring to particular task ids eg via a tag that  when placed in the post creates a clickable link that zooms me to that task record.


Add Trogdor Ryver Custom Emojis

Meredith 2 years ago in Misc 0

Please add Trogdor the Burninator to the Ryver Custom Emojis.  We would use him very often when referencing 'burning to the ground'.


Tutorial and marketplace for Hubot

Mark Blokpoel 2 years ago in Integrations updated 2 years ago 0

The documentation for deploying a hubot bot is very poor. It would be nice to see better documentation for writing a Hubot script and deploying it. Even better, if there would be something like a marketplace where the community can share their bots/scripts. This way you can expand Ryver functionality for very low cost, and the users have more features available!


Restrict Users from changing email addresses

jiegomojica 3 years ago in Admin updated by Jet Mojica 2 years ago 2

As admin, we regularly deactivate users after projects get completed. When teams get very big, the only way for us to reliably look up users is using the registered email they used when we sent out the invite. Otherwise, all a user needs to do is to change username and email address to stay in the Ryver org.

Restricting users from changing email adds will solve a lot of user management issues.


Tablet screen orientation to portrait instead of landscape

Renan 3 years ago in Mobile 0

Using tablet version the screen orientation is always in landscape. Can you please have an option to make it portrait as oppose to having landscape as it is really hard for our group to read tons of messages. Yeah landscape is ok but only when watch videos but not for reading which we normally use everyday and I think lot of users also do. Thanks


Show Who Has Seen a Post

joemar1988 3 years ago in Posts updated by Ali 3 years ago 1

It would be useful if there was an icon for each user below the last post a user has viewed. This would allow other users to know who has seen their post. Sometimes even if a user is not idle, they may not notice a post and then never look at that forum.

Statistics for Admin users

WA Raiders Clan 4 years ago in Admin updated by RyverMan 1 year ago 7

Would love to be able to generate Ryver usage statistics for all members. These stats would show information for a period specified. Example stats below:

  • How many chat messages a user sent
  • How many posts a user sent
  • Last login
  • Emoticon count
  • etc

Basically stats to show a single users or all users combined activity on Ryver.

p2p file transfer

Andreas 4 years ago in Chat updated by Computers for Schools Yukon 3 years ago 4

If you are transferring very large files and/or files you just don't care if they are saved for later or not. P2P file transfer could be better since you then wouldn't have to send them to the server first. In particular when you are on the same network as the person you are sending the file to this could increase the speed a lot.

Chat message formating helper button

Andreas 4 years ago in Chat updated by jeff 4 years ago 1

It would be nice if you could add a button to help with formatting of chat messages. I think this would be very useful for people who are not used to markdown. It could be something as simple as a quick-help button that explains it. However I think the solution I would prefer is that you select some text and then click a button that pops up a menu with all formating to choose from.
