The New Ryver

Detailed Features List

Of course, Ryver has all the features commonly found in team communication products. That’s what you expect. And Ryver also includes world-class team task management that exceeds expectations.

However, Ryver offers a richer combination of features than you typically find in any of those single-function products.

World Class Task Management plus Team Communications

Ryver seamlessly integrates team task management with team communication. In addition, you can convert any conversation into a set of tasks. Once converted to tasks, you can actually assign tasks to people, attach deadlines and track progress.

Track projects visually in a simple yet powerful way

Ryver’s task boards are like columns of post-it notes on a board that everyone on a team can see. Makes it easy to see the Who, What and When of every task. MORE+

Forums, Teams and Users can all create and manage their own sets of task boards. And – just as you’d expect – you can drag and drop tasks from one category to another to indicate progress.

You can create an unlimited number of task boards, with unlimited numbers of tasks. You can assign tasks to users, assign deadlines and even assign alerts. Everyone can receive notifications as Tasks move towards completion.

Each task can have subtasks with checklists. You can create custom tags to make it easier to group tasks within and across task boards.

All that could be really complicated if we didn’t provide advanced searching & filtering capabilities. Fear not – we’ve made it easy to find almost anything, because you can search and filter Tasks in dozens of different ways.

Conversation management, not just team chat

Ryver takes the idea of team chat to a whole new level. Conversations have many purposes and many forms, and Ryver makes it easy to categorize, manage and – most importantly – keep up with all of them. MORE+

Sometimes conversations are free-flowing. Quick questions, quick answers, quick comments. Chat is the right vehicle for that.

Sometimes conversations are focused on a specific subject and require detailed documentation. These conversations take more time, but have a much longer shelf-life. Topics are perfect for that.

Some conversations should be limited to just the people on a team, some should be open to everyone in your organization. And some conversations are private between just two people. Ryver has it all covered for you.

And sometimes, writing is just too slow. So Ryver makes voice-to-voice conversations for 2 people, 20 people or even 200 as simple as “Click-to-Talk.”

And Ryver makes it easy to turn all that talk into trackable tasks.

Ryver manages all those conversations so you can Get Big Sh*t Done.

Same data structures as Slack and Trello

If you’ve ever used Slack, then you know how to use most of the communications features of Ryver. If you’ve ever used Trello, then you already know how to use most of the task management functions of Ryver. MORE+

And if you are currently using Slack and/or Trello, Ryver makes it easy to import your existing data from both of them.

LESS-

Flexible Admin & User Controls

Administrators can configure each Forum, each Team, and even Direct Messages for whatever combination of Chat, Topics & Tasks fits your needs. MORE+

And each user’s access to Data and Teams can be individually configured as well.

Users have control over the type of notifications they receive.

LESS-

Advanced Notifications Center

The notification center aggregates your most important messages all in one place. It’s like reading 30 emails in 30 seconds. MORE+

Most of the time, reading just the notification is sufficient. Yet Ryver makes it easy to drill down deeper into the entire message stream if you need more detail.

A notification will lead you directly to the Forum, Team or DM for all the details and context. Yet you don’t have to wade through all that if you don’t need it.

Click-to-Talk

Want to talk voice-to-voice to that person you’re chatting with on Ryver? Just press on the Click-to-Talk button and – BAM! – you’re talking live. Want to do it with a whole group? No problem – just Click-to-Talk. (Coming Soon) MORE+

Ryver allows you to connect 1-to-1, 1-to-Many, and Many-to-Many voice-to-voice at the push of a button. Every member of your team can start conferencing with a single click.

  • No scheduling necessary.
  • No virtual conference rooms need.
  • No PINs – ever.

It’s fast. It’s as simple as clicking an icon. The audio quality is top-notch because our Click-to-Talk is built on the industry’s best audio platform. And you can even share files while talking each other.  Screen sharing is coming soon followed by video conferencing.

Threaded Topics

Chat is useful for those daily give-and-take conversations that make us feel connected with our team. But chat is unstructured, almost random. It’s just a long series of almost unrelated – and sometimes mixed-up conversations. MORE+

Chat is highly interruptive. Like or not, our human brains are wired to make us feel compelled to respond immediately to a chat. So we do. And it breaks our flow and reduces productivity. In fact, Chat can be worse than email.

That’s where Threaded Topics come in.

Topics can save you from the irritation and headache of trying to find that brilliant comment amid an ocean of useless chatter. You don’t feel compelled to reply immediately like you do with Chat.

The Watcher

With the Watcher you can easily feed any external news source from the web right into a Ryver Forum, Team or Direct Message. You can track people, companies and keyword topics in context within Ryver. MORE+

Perhaps your Mobile Dev team needs to keep up with the latest in the iOS and Android worlds. You would setup Watchers that bring the latest news about iOS and Android straight into the Dev Team workspace.

And your Marketing team wants to keep tabs on the competition, so you set up Watchers to feed the latest info about your competitors straight into the Marketing Team’s workspace.

And soon, you’ll also be able to watch email, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn as well.

Ultimately, any data from any application can be brought into Ryver with just a few clicks. No technical setup required. Data integrations have never been so easy!

LESS-

Share Files

Dropbox taking too long to sync? No problem. You can share files through Ryver instead. Ryver stores your shared files in the context of your conversations, not inside someone else’s file structure where it isn’t part of the conversation. MORE+

And Ryver’s advanced search, sort and filter capabilities make it easy to find files even if you’ve forgotten which conversation they belong to.

Enhanced Security with Armor

Your Ryver data is protected by Armor Anywhere, a managed cloud security solution that provides you 24/7/365 security monitoring, threat analysis and protection, and threat response. MORE+

In fact, Armor security is trusted by some of the most security-sensitive companies in the world – healthcare and financial services. So relax, your data is safe with Ryver.

Team Email Addresses

(Coming soon) Each team in Ryver has an email address. That way, anyone can send chats, topics and tasks directly to the team with just that email address. And Ryver automatically places that team email in context right where it belongs.

Flat-Rate Pricing

Face it: per-user pricing means you make a budget decision every time you consider whether or not to invite a new user. What that really means is that you have to get admin permission to  invite vendors, prospects, advisors, customers and other key stakeholders into your conversations. That’s no way to run a business. ΜORE+

You should never have to think twice about inviting someone into the conversation. Flat-rate pricing makes it easy.

Flat-rate pricing allows you to build very large teams across your entire organization without worrying about ever-increasing costs. And Ryver is free for your first 6 team members.
