I like the ability to promote chats into a post. However, there is no way to tell from the Chat page that a particular message has been promoted into a post. I have a few ideas for how this might be done, but none are completely satisfactory. I'll mention 2 of them here:
1. For promoted messages which are sequential, add a visual like what Twitter uses for threaded messages (they are connected with a gray vertical line). Then, at the end/bottom, include an ellipsis button or some other icon which links to the corresponding Post. Pros: visual clarity and intuitiveness (in my opinion). Cons: Not clear how this would work when non-sequential chat messages are promoted, or when a message is promoted into more than one chat.
2. Include an option in the ellipsis menu (or an icon on the mouseover menu with Reply and Create Post) for chat messages called "View posts based on this message" or something similar. Pros and cons are switched from my first suggestion. In particular, I would still like to see a visual indication that a chat message was promoted.
When replying a conversation, or thread, is created. It would be great to be able to access them, the thread outside the forum, so one can follow each of them in different positions within the UI, in different panes or sections.
Posts are a bit of an overkill; all I want is to be able to select a message that is interesting or useful, and then have a view of all the messages that were interesting or useful so a) that either they can easily be referenced or b) someone can catch up easily.
Perhaps giving the ability to upvote messages and then show a view of a forum where you can see all the messages that were highlighted this way, either in chronological order or by number of upvotes would be useful for others to catch up on what has been going on in the forum.
(Windows) When switching tabs, either manually or through Ctrl+K, the message entry field does not automatically receive focus. Especially for Ctrl+K, where I am trying to avoid the use of the mouse, I would expect that I can just go ahead and type a message once I switch to the new chat, but now I am forced to move my mouse and click on the text entry field. (Or I can press Tab a couple of times until I see the caret in there :-)
How about a general feature where, if you @ mention someone that is not in the current private team, Ryver will prompt you, saying that the person is not in your private group and offering to add that person?
So, instead of the @mention bringing up only people that are in your current private team and "No users found" for anything else, have it come up with a balloon notification over the user, saying they are not in the group and with a button that would let you add them.
Better visual cues for the forum/team you are chatting in, or visual cues showing if a discussion is private
When you have a large list of discussions on the left, the one you are engaging with should be highlighted more clearly.
Also, it would be nice if there were a visual cue, such as a different background color, to indicate when you are in a private discussion. (Perhaps forum/team creators can even set the background to something unique?).
It would make it more obvious straightaway where you are chatting.
