More user preferences for notifications

jeff 2 years ago in Notifications • updated by anonymous 3 months ago 22

Would like to have more control over type of notifications received, and in what format. Example preferences:

  • Get notifications of ALL chat messages in specified teams, not just @mentions
  • Get push notifications all the time, not just when "away" or "offline"

Synchronize notifications between desktop and phone

Andreas 2 years ago in Notifications • updated by jeff 2 weeks ago 2

When I read a message on desktop I would be nice if the notification on the phone was canceled and vice versa.


"Remind Me" Option for Chats

Isaac de la Fuente 2 years ago in Notifications • updated by Computers for Schools Yukon 6 months ago 17

We LOVE the "Remind Me" button for Posts and would like to see it available for chats as well. Quite often we'll see a chat that requires action but we can't take action at the very moment (whether on our mobile or desktop). Currently the only way to remind ourselves about that chat is to promote it to a post and then set a reminder.

Currently it's still much better for us to email co-workers something that is actionable because it will remain in their inbox until they actively delete archive it. If we could set a reminder from a chat it would solve that problem (of course we'd like to be able to decide when to remind us on a chat per chat basis and I see this as another topic in these forums).


Notification keywords

neil.bobkowski 4 months ago in Notifications 0

Allow users to define keywords for notifications.  This would be a mirror of Slack's "My Keywords" ability within the Notifications settings.  Essentially a user can define a list of keywords (such as "emergency").  Then anytime that word is used in a Forum or Topic the users gets a notification.


Collapse Mode for Forums, Teams, and Chat notifications

Albert 2 years ago in Notifications • updated by Isaac Eiland-Hall 2 years ago 3

I have 30 Teams and a bunch of Users. So when I hear "bling!" notifying me I've got a new something, I have to scroll all the way down, and all the way back up to see what's been yellowed.

I'd like to collapse the categories and have only new (incoming) messages appear under the collapsed category.

In other words, if I'm running in "Collapse Mode" then I only see this in my sidebar:




Until... voila! A message comes in from Bobby, and the Marketing team posts something. Then I see:



Marketing Team



So I click on Bobby's message, read it, and it "un-yellows" itself. Then I click on Marketing.

While I'm replying to Marketing, I see this (because I've already read Bobby's message)



Marketing Team


It disappeared again because I'm in Collapse Mode.

Feature to tag teamates for use as custom @mention

Andreas 2 years ago in Notifications • updated by pdlbibek 3 months ago 7

It would be nice to have the ability to add tags to teammates, for example I could add a tag for all guests when working with consultants and then when you need to ask any of them a question I can notify those specific users by typing @guest-tag. When teams get a bit larger it gets a bit inconvenient to @mention all the concerned teammates.

I was thinking that this should be on a team basis but maybe it could be done on the user profile so that it could be used in multiple teams as a tag likely is connected to who you are. Although your role could be different in different teams so that could pose a problem (maybe both features would be better?).

Option to improve visibility of notifications

Andreas 2 years ago in Notifications • updated by Andrew Malcolm 12 months ago 4

Since a lot of us are using Ryver in a work environment sound is often not an option. So I have noticed that messages often goes unoticed not sure what the main problem is here maybe it's not visible enough, maybe it less noticeable with a multi screen setup.

Either way some options to make notifications more visible would be nice, some ideas:

  • Allow change of popup duration
  • Allow changing looks of popup
  • Enable more incessant blinking for new messages
  • Allow bringing Ryver to foreground upon notification
  • Allow systray flashing on notification
  • Allow notification to be sent as email if message is not read withing a set amount of time (could be useful for other reasons as well)
  • Allow execution of a command upon receiving a notification (related separate topic)

Refresh Notifications upon reading each.

Ben 5 months ago in Notifications • updated by jeff 4 months ago 2

Whenever I check unread notifications, if I go read one or more of them, it still appears in the list of UNREAD.  To "refresh" the list you can either refresh the browser or pick for example ALL notifications and then UNREAD again.

I think that Ryver should AUTOMATICALLY remove any notification from the UNREAD notifications as soon as the user is reading it.

Notifications count should show Unread Quantity even if they are not new

Ben 4 months ago in Notifications • updated by jeff 3 months ago 1

Right now, the Notifications button on the Sidebar shows only the quantity of NEW notifications.  But once a user clicks on it and starts checking notification, that number disappears and there's no idea of how many notifications are still unread.

I think that the number of unread notifications should always be visible and be automatically reduced once a user starts actually reading each notification.

Notifications should take you to the chat message and highlight just as a comment on a Post does

Christopher 2 years ago in Notifications • updated by jeff 2 years ago 2

Notifications should take you to the chat message and highlight just as a comment on a Post does.

Currently, when you click on a notification from inside the Notification section, certain ones take you directly to the chat (and highlight it in yellow) while others don't.

For example, a comment to a Post will take you directly to that comment and highlight it.
However, an @ mention in a Forum chat message will only take you to the channel and not to the chat itself. It also doesn't highlight it in yellow.

I would like to see it so that it also highlights Chat messages in the same way it does on a Comment.
