We finally pulled this service back out of cold storage and are putting the finishing touches on a UI for it. We have begun testing it in-house with hopes to release it in a couple of weeks. We just need to make sure we have it set up to scale properly once everybody starts setting up feeds.

I'm not sure why your zaps are creating duplicates. Did you check to see if perhaps your Google Alert is creating multiple entries for the same topic?

With our RSS watcher, you should definitely just get one entry per RSS feed article.

Thank you for reporting this issue. We have had a few other reports as well, and are looking into this. It seems like a subset of customers have more than one device registration entry in our push notification service. But it's only Android customers.

For those of you who have started seeing the double notifications, have you had Ryver installed on another phone and then upgraded to a new phone?

Thanks for the clarification, Ben. I know you talked to one of our support specialists and they missed that you were wanting the direct assignment, but we do understand this request.

We're still having some internal discussions about the possibility of adding this feature. I know some products support this approach to task creation, while others like Trello keep things completely focused on the shared task boards. We decided to focus on the latter initially, and we still have a few features like recurring tasks, due date reminders, and others we need to complete before we consider tackling a bigger task-related project like this one. But it is definitely on our radar now.

Hi Ben,

I have a scenario for you. When you create a Task Board with categories, in which you can drag to re-order your tasks within each category column, what would you expect to happen when you switch to list view? Would you still expect to be able to drag/drop the tasks in different orders? That gets a bit awkward with the categories.



Hi Ben,

We do highlight the specific topic reply or task comment if you have a notification/reminder on one of those. Note that there was previously a bug with tasks in which it didn't scroll down and highlight the comment, but that was fixed in our update this past weekend.

We were thinking the highlight would be unnecessary for the main topic/task itself if we kept the view at the top and didn't highlight any of the replies/comments. It sounds like you find that a bit too ambiguous and would like to see something more explicit.

For chat, we do plan on a complete update of the chat view so that we can scroll you right to the chat message in the chat room itself, rather than taking you to the separate Chat Archive view. This is a bit of a bigger project, though, so it's going to be a couple months out.

Thank you for the detailed rundown, Ben! We have been looking at what it would take to provide some high level stats to the Admins. As a starting point, we were looking at the following, to be updated weekly (all organization-wide metrics):

* Total team/forum chat messages

* Total DMs

* Total topics

* Total tasks

* Number of users added

* Number Teams and Forums created

What do you think about that for phase 1?

We do have recurring tasks and task due date notifications on our radar. Would that tide you over? Or would you find it important to be able to de-couple these recurring reminders from tasks? That does sound like a handy feature.

We definitely have improved integrations on our ToDo list, Ben. We're going to start with a few specific things such as easy one-click integration of RSS feeds, and an Outlook integration for adding topics/tasks in Ryver from your emails. From there we will be building some wrappers around our webhook support for more one-click integration with popular apps, rather than having to provide a custom template.

That's an interesting point about emoji by themselves. I see Slack only supports the big emoji with certain themes. I'll check with the dev team about this feature to see if there might be any technical issues, or if it would be an easy addition. Thanks!

Hi Ben,

We do keep the unread ones white, vs the gray read ones, but I guess I can see where it would be nice to see a count, especially if you get a lot of notifications. What if the navigation bar badge was still cleared, but when you went to the NOTIFICATIONS view itself, you saw an unread count at the top?
