IP address visibility

Doodle 7 years ago updated by Austin Best 7 years ago 1

Please make IP addresses visible to admins. We are a group of strangers with a common goal. The only way we can prevent people from making multiple accounts is if admins are able to see their IP addresses since - new email addresses can easily made using webmail.

Task bar icon?

Rayzback 7 years ago updated by jeff 7 years ago 1

When Ryver windows application is NOT minimized an icon should appear on the task bar. I can't seem to drag and drop to a post and can't get Ryver to the foreground from the ^ overflow while holding on to a file. Maybe it's just me or Win10? :)


Rate a comment or message (like the Upvote/Downvote mechanic in posts)

Joseph Banass 7 years ago updated by anonymous 5 years ago 1

A great feature would be to let users rate comments or messages in a private team or open forum. This can be great, especially for Q&A so that the proper "answer" stands out more.

3rd Party Organizations via in app Ryver-Web-Browser

jake 8 years ago updated 7 years ago 2

So I have a marketing idea in the end, but really its a functionality and efficiency thing too.
I wonder if it is possible to have an organization from another company in the organizations list.

Image 32

What it would take is a browser like window in Ryver. I currently have 3 Ryver organizations.. a couple elsewhere.. leaving them nameless. So I see it as an attractive venture to have other 'circle shapes' here in the list which opens a browser in the main window. You would set the settings up for the organization as a url, then you simply go through the motions of that platform as if you had logged-in on the web. This way the information pipeline is not managed by Ryver, all Ryver has to do is make sure it has a working web browser.

Result: All 5 of my organizations in one platform in one list. Since Ryver is free, it may be a tool to help secure the new user that is on the fence due to having too many platforms between social/professional organizations.

Provide access to user profile card details for bot actions

Bill Gravelle 8 years ago updated 7 years ago 2

I just found Timezone.io today and am experimenting with it in the context of a Hubot script (GitHub repo). I definitely see the appeal of exposing this detail to our community. I just don't like the idea of forcing them to register for a new service, simply to provide the detail that already exists inside Ryver.

It would be great to have bot actions to set the current timezone (for when we're traveling). It also would be great to have the bot action contextually get the current timezones for members - in the Direct Message, the Private Team, the Open Forum or the Organization.

Forum/Team Icon next to its name in the Navigation Pane

André Koch 8 years ago updated by jeff 7 years ago 1

Hi team, again I must say I'm liking this app more and more as I use it. Anyway I was just wondering, is it possible to have the forum or team icon display next to its name on the navigation pane? It displays at the top of the chat room once I'm already in it, but it would be nice if I could select the chat room I want to get into, by identifying its icon. Its like when I see Jeff's picture in the idea thread I know the post is from him instantly. This will also brighten up the navigation pane a bit. Maybe this feature is already there but I doesn't work for me for some reason, I'm not sure. Btw, I think priority for this feature should be the desktop app. Thanks!

Easy integration with video services

Bill Gravelle 8 years ago updated by jeff 7 years ago 2

How about a customizable slash command to fire up a WebRTC service like https://appear.in/? That would allow us to immediately fire up a group video conversation within our Ryver platform ...

PS - It would be great to allow our own settings in case we're using something different in the future. Again, As previously mentioned, we would be happy have those settings in EddyBot (similar to the Enrollment URL interface), so as to simplify the coding effort. After all, it's really only something we use once or twice in an Admin role ...

Bug - Ryver input/script causes unusual login page behavior

Fore 8 years ago updated by jeff 8 years ago 1


When trying to login from an Android device using the input box (for organizations) the text is automatically changed by what seems to be a running script. On the Andriod platform this causes my Tablet (an Asus Android Tranformer with an external keyboard) to act oddly.

It seemingly confuses the keyboard app and causes very strange behavior. Such as having to type each character twice or having the wrong keystroke show up on the screen. Creating a very tricky effort to login.

This problem is also less evident but persists on the Desktop when doing a login from chrome. It seems you guys/gals placed a script to auto-magically turn all character into minor letters. But this seems to cause problems on Tablets and Desktops. As the input box seems to constantly rewrite what is present in the box as you type each character.


Complete list of allowed forums for each Guest in ellipsis

jake 8 years ago 0

This would be a great place to have a "Forums" button in the list, for admins at least. This way an admin can quickly see how many and to which forums the guest has been invited. Currently you must go to the each forum and see if the guests are in the roster.

Integrate ability to segregate Forums into separate clustered topics.

Fore 8 years ago updated 8 years ago 3

Please consider adding the ability for Admins to be able to segregate or cluster forums by topics.

We use Ryver as a job management/ticket tool for different process stacks involved in a Tv Repair business.

We are trying it out (and it is a great help) and find that we have about 30+ Forums for all repair jobs (by name) but are unable to group together different forums into "stacks". We would like the ability to "group"/"stack" different people at different stages of a process pipeline together so we can know at a glance how many people are at which stage of the pipeline. From Diagnosis to Ordering parts to Repaired.

As there is a pipeline that gradually evolves for each separate Forum it becomes time consuming to keep tabs on which forum is at which stage of a process.

ThePwo 8 years ago updated by anonymous 6 years ago 1

On Linux 32bits (Ubuntu and Lubuntu) it's impossible to start Ryver.

I have try numerous commands like

sudo ./Ryver
sudo sh Ryver
sudo bash Ryver

... and without sudo
But same error


Attention Grabbing "Buzz" Notification

Ryan Gallagher 8 years ago updated by Jonaskevin 6 years ago 1

Similar to the old Yahoo Messenger "Buzz" feature it would be nice to have the option to grab another user's attention via a full scree alert or overlay that would require a dismissal. Noisy environments sometimes cause alerts to be missed or working on multiple systems at once.
