Adhoc group chat without creating a team

jeff 3 years ago in Chat • updated by Anne 1 month ago 31

Would like to be able to select multiple users and have a chat conversation with them, similar to group text messages on a phone, without having to create a team and add them as teammates.


Reactions for chat messages

jeff 3 years ago in Chat • updated by kanbui 1 year ago 21

Would like to be able to add a "reaction" emoticon to another user's chat message, such as a thumbs up.

Add option for 24h time format instead of am/pm

Andreas 3 years ago in Chat • updated by Austin Best 10 months ago 4

Am/pm is not used where I'm from so it's not as intuative for me as 24 hour time format.


Open to Last Unread

UTisTheLaw 3 years ago in Chat • updated by anonymous 7 months ago 9

When you open a forum after being away, I would like to be able to go to my last unread chat either automatically or by clicking a button or link.

Customize Emoticons

Piet Nutbey 3 years ago in Chat • updated by Elias 2 months ago 13

One thing we really like would be an added option for custom icons / emoticons.

Of-course this adds nothing to functionality, but I know our team of 8 always loves to play around with it.

Sticky Posts to Chat Channels

Oli Chance 3 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 3 years ago in Chat • updated by Kami 1 month ago 6

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.

Notification when someone/ other people else is/are typing in the chat.

Joseph Hause 2 years ago in Chat • updated by FHTheron 5 months ago 3

Just a "Bob and Steve are typing" at the bottom of the chat to let the other people know that the person is actually responging.


LaTeX extension to markdown

Alexei 2 years ago in Chat • updated by anonymous 7 months ago 3

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.


Integrated ability to stream Tweets and Google Alerts to chat room

jeff 3 years ago in Chat • updated 9 months ago 9

Would like to be able to watch particular Twitter users or keywords, as well as certain Google Alerts, by having them stream directly into a Forum or Team chat room. Would like to be able to do this as a feature native to Ryver, rather than needing to use a third-party service such as Zapier.
