Improve task creation procedures and reduce clicks

Ben 4 months ago in Misc • updated by Alejandro Llorente 3 months ago 3
  1. Currently there's no way to assign a task to a User when creating a Task in Personal Tasks or in Direct Messages.  You can do that only from Teams and Forums (VERY BAD!!!).  You should be able to assign tasks to any users from ANYWHERE on Ryver.
  2. The Ryver /task command only brings up the task creation form popup.  It would be much better if using the /task command you could:
    1. Assign the task to one of more @users and have the asignees already appear in the task creation form once you press Enter.
    2. Write the Subject of the Task and have it already appear in the task creation form once you press Enter.
    3. Write the due date in Plain English (Friday 11:35 am, in 2 days, in 3 weeks, in 4 hours, etc) and have the due date already assigned in the task creation form once you press enter.
    4. Have the user pick a default due date (could be, for example, "Tomorrow 9 am" or "Tomorrow same time" and whenever no date info is entered in the command, have Ryver auto-assign the default due date.
  3. Once a Task is created, Ryver only gives a confirmation that such task was created if it was created in the user's own chat section and not when a task is created in a team of forum.  And the confirmation is not editable.  Instead, confirmations should:
    1. ALWAYS appear wherever you are.  If on another users chat, it should appear but stating "only visible to you".  In Forums or Teams it could appeare normally so everybody sees it.
    2. Should have the option to edit the task.  You should be able to quickly assign to other users, change title, change description, change due date, etc, etc.

Examples of a very useful Ryver Task creation command would be:


  • /task @user1 in 3 days SujectOfTheTask
  • /task @user1 @user2 in 4 hours SubjectOfTheTask
  • /task @user3 next Thursday SubjectOfTheTask
  • /task @user4 the first Monday of next month SubjectOfTheTask

Taskbar Icon should show the number of unread messages

Ben 4 months ago in Desktop 0

Both Slack and Whatsapp desktop clients show the number (or quantity) of unread messages.  Ryver doesn't.  Very strange.  This feature should be easy to add.

Refresh Notifications upon reading each.

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

Support for two-factor authentication.

Mxx 2 years ago • updated by Sean Johnson 2 years ago 3

I would like to secure my/my team's accounts with more than just username/password. Please add support for any number of various two-factor authentication solutions.

Allow multi-window interface which supports pop-outs for teams, chats, posts.

Stephanie Henyard 2 years ago in Desktop • updated by Ken Lenoir 6 months ago 10

Support a window pop-out feature for teams, forums, DMs, posts in the Desktop versions. For our users that are constantly going back and forth between teams, DMs, Posts they'd greatly prefer the ability to have separate windows for each area/team they're working on. The main Ryver window would remain the same, the pop-out would let users focus on that one area. Services I'm familiar with that do something similiar include Evernote, Mac Notes, and Mac Messages.

Nesting of Group Posts

Wayne 2 years ago in Posts • updated by jeff 2 years ago 4

Replies to a post show up in the order submitted. This can make it hard to follow along, even if someone includes text from the previous post. It would be useful to me if the replies were nested under their parent; being collapsible would also be nice.

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

Ben 3 months ago in Notifications • updated by jeff 2 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.

Permissions for deleting/editing messages!!!!

Austin Best 12 months ago in Admin • updated 4 weeks ago 12

I have not found this option if it exists, but if it doesn't this is a MUST. In the last week we had an issue with an employee who threatened another employee, luckily the "victim" took a screenshot of the interaction because the "bully" decided to delete all the messages. THERE NEEDS TO BE A WAY TO CONTROL WHO CAN DELETE MESSAGES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Either on a user by user (preferred) or user level (Guest/Member/Admin) basis


This is such an easy feature, please dont make this take a year to implement. PLEASE.


For editing, this can also be permissions based or show a "changed" log for what was changed in the post.

Mac Fullscreen Support

Implement fullscreen functionality on the Mac app. Right now clicking the green icon only makes app maximize to the screen (but does not enable fullscreen mode).

Ability to sort unread notifications by oldest or most recent, as required

Ben 3 months ago in Navigation 0

Right now, the default sort for notifications is most recent first.  I usually have by default only the UNREAD notifications.  But when I have too many, it takes time to scroll down to the bottom.  


I would like to have a button to quickly sort by oldest one first or by most recent first, as the situation requires.

Ability for Admin to Reverse Chat or Topic Message Order

Ben 3 months ago in Chat 0

Although most people in the world are used to the most recent message appearing below the last one (on the bottom), it could be more efficient to show the latest message above the last one.  Would avoid a lot of scrolling down.

Create a role of 'Forum Admin'

ChrisD 2 years ago in Admin 0

I see many ideas being submitted around increasing Admin functionality, but this one is quite specific. As a 'super-admin' I'd like to give rights to a Member to manage their own Forum, and have the same rights over their Forum as I have over all Forums. ie. Be able to sticky posts, edit other peoples' posts, delete posts, within a single Forum.

Request for threaded chat

Aaron Bartell 2 years ago in Chat • updated by Amin Mohammed 9 months ago 2

In our Ryver community (ibmioss) we have a lot of chats that get promoted to posts and that is very confusing if you started a chat and it was promoted to a post by somebody else (you wonder "where'd it go?"). I then need to go to the posts tab and start looking. Instead it would be good if an existing chat could be marked as a post and that would start a form of indentation within the chat pane. This means the post tab would go away. This would also necessitate a "Filter" feature on the chat pane (maybe refactored to not be named chat, because posts would also be there) that would allow just posts to be displayed.


I don't want to derail this feature that's already planned. But I did want to convey that the current approach is not immediately intuitive (and even after understanding the feature I still get lost).

Option to set order of Sticky Posts

DavidC 2 years ago in Posts • updated by Anthony 2 months ago 2

Right now stickies are displayed in order of Last is First. When setting a series of stickies as 1), 2), 3) etc it would be helpful to have the option to display them alphanumerically.
