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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
better task tracking via convert task to link, embed task id or link in chat, and/or enable task search
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
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
Basically stats to show a single users or all users combined activity on Ryver.
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.
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.
Once in notifications, looking at the message, users CANNOT CREATE A TASK!!! When a user reads a message that has been marked with reminder, the user will see it again in the Notifications section, but since there's no way to create a message, the user has to either set a new reminder or copy/paste to a new task, which is a cumbersome procedure. Ryver needs to add the ability to create tasks directly from the notification Window.
