    Hey Kira, I can't say anything for sure, yet but we are aiming for beginning of next year.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Great! I will merge this idea with an already existing one for events then.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Vanessa, wouldn't it be a better idea to improve the events then? E.g. making it possible to create global events with a limited seating where everyone could set their status (without being invited)?

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    No, problem!

    Yes, there is a way to add events directly to your calendar. With version 14 (which is the latest cloud version) we introduced an ICS download which you can directly connect with your calendar application on your computer (or mobile device). There is a brief explanation in this blog article: https://www.coyoapp.com/blog/externe-workspace-mitglieder

    We are also working on a direct integration with Outlook in O365 and Google Calendar.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Philip, you mean that users don't have to say whether they attend or not? Could be useful for public events, yes. I'll keep it in mind but it won't have the highest priority here.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Nothing secure - but the plan is to improve a few flaws in the general concept like:
    - making it easier to create public / private events
    - invite all members of a workspace / subscribers of a page
    - edit the admins afterwards and do not display them as hosts

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    We are planning to do some general improvements for the events - this will be one of them. Unfortunately, we don't have a timeline, yet.

    Hey Stefan,

    yes, you are right. Cleaning up the old files from the backup isn't really easy right now. We are planning to improve our general approach to store binary files at the moment. The current concept includes splitting up the large gridFS file which would make it a little bit easier. This will hopefully be done until the end of the year.

    For just hiding the 3 apps you could use the following snippet:

    .page-card-apps-list-wrapper {
    display: none;
    }
    .page-card .panel-body .page-card-body {
    height: 85px;
    }
    .page-card {
    height: 250px;
    }

    Hey Vanessa,

    at the moment we are planning to make it easier to create private events. So - events could be created private at first and then made public. Would this cover your use case?

    Right now we are looking into an archiving function / improving the current archive functionality. Users will be able to move group chats and 1-on-1 chats to an archive and also look into the archive itself. That way you can keep your chat sidebar clean.

    Would that solve your requirements?

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Sabrina,

    can you tell me more about what exactly the working council is demanding? To delete whole chats or single messages? Single chats as well as group chats? What is supposed to happen with the messages of the other person? For which reasons is working council demanding this?

    Best,
    Sven

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Josephine, we have currently no plans to allow users to delete chat messages. We just don't see a very important use case here.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Josephine,

    thanks, that's very interesting! An interesting question would be, though, what the users would expect if the start a new chat with the same colleague. Would they expect all messages to be gone? Because in many messaging apps the last messages will appear again...

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    I am a bit uncertain what the actual use case is: From my point of view a user should not be able to delete a whole conversation. if this would be possible I could delete the messages of the user I am corresponding with. If the use case is just to delete my own messages within a conversation that would alter the context of the conversation as such.

    Sarah, could you give me a bit more information what your Data Privacy would like to achieve?

    Josephine, do the users want to delete the conversation to actually delete the messages or to remove the conversation from the chat sidebar?

    Most of our customers handle this by creating a workspace in the name of the top management and posting in the name of that workspace. But I understand your use case and I see why this would be convenient. We'll keep it in mind but at the moment there are things with a higher priority, I would say.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    I have to admit that I am not a big fan of this idea. It would make the feature to post in the name of a page/workspace/event event more complicated. But could you maybe tell me a bit more about the use case?

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Christoph, unfortunately this isn't planned right now. Sorry.

    Hey Thomas,

    yeah, that would be great, but apps are the technically most complex structure to restore. So, we really would like to add this to the product but it will probably not the first thing on our agenda.

    To give you some more insights: at the moment we are planning to add some quick wins that makes it harder to delete things by accident - e.g. placing and designing delete buttons the same everywhere and adding confirmation dialogs etc. Afterwards restoring documents will probably the first issue that we are going to tackle.

    Best
    Sven

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    First of all, thank you very much for your input. If I get this correctly restoring deleted files / having a trash bin for files and documents would be the most important feature.

    I can't give you a timing right now - as you can see on our roadmap we are working on several O365 integrations features right now. But, the trash bin for documents will be a good candidate as a follow up.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    We know about the importance of this topic and we are having a look into this right now. We want to figure out how we can start kicking off this topic by making some smaller steps of progress. So, we would like to find out what the most important content type would be to recover from a trash bin.

    Would be great if you could leave a comment here what you think should have the highest priority.

    We are planning a major update on events in COYO right now. This will also be a topic that we are going to tackle.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    I can't promise this but we will have a look into it. We would like to make several improvements for events for quite a while now - this would be one of them.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Kira, yes you are right. Unfortunately we are busy with working on items with a higher priority. But this is still on our list as well.

    This was only possible in COYO 3 and we didn't implement the feature for COYO 4. We are aware that this was a handy feature for smaller companies but right now this is not planned to be implemented again. Sorry.

    Yes, I do understand the use case. This would make it easier to create timelines for specific topics within a single page or workspace.

    Since there is a workaround (have a workspace dedicated to the topic with a timeline) implementing this features does not have priority for us right now.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Can you explain a little bit about the use case behind this idea?

    Interesting idea. Would users be able to find hidden pages in the search? For your use case this should not be the case, right?

    Hey Sabrina, good point. It was designed that way since you are starting a new search. But if you are altering your current search it is quite annoying to lose your search filters. Along with https://community.coyoapp.com/forums/306010/suggestions/34622206 we are having a look into this topic in the near future.

    Hey Kerstin & Thomas, I see the point. This was done to have shares consistent. When sharing a blog article you usually want to see the comments on the article also under the share (since it reflects a discussion about it's content). For pages and workspaces, though, it does not make so much sense. We will have a look into this.

    Hey Nils, should work now :)

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Tobias, are you going to use O365? If so you will be able to use this feature in Q4. You can follow the progress on our roadmap: https://community.coyoapp.com/internal-roadmap Just check for the "O365 Calendar" feature. If you have to rely on the webcal feature though (e.g. for Exchange on premise), I can't give you a timeline, yet.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Ok, fair enough. Unfortunately I don't think that our planned integration will work for Outlook on premise. But we might have another look into webcal to support a broadly used interface.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hi Louis, we are planning to implement a sync between events in COYO and Outlook (for O365). Every time a user clicks to attend an event in COYO the event is going to be written into that users Outlook calendar. Additionally all changes to the event in COYO would be synched to Outlook as well.

    Would that help your use case or do you rely on webcal?

    Hey Thomas, they are sorted alphabetically but grouped by admin and members. From our point of view it makes sense to list the admins first. What do you think?

    Sorry, Jörg. It is quite hard to answer all suggestions and I probably missed yours 5 months ago. We'll try to improve this.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Jörg and Johannes,

    thanks for your feedback and good points. We will take that into consideration once we have another look at the "New colleagues" widget. There are other ideas to improve the widget like https://community.coyoapp.com/forums/306010/suggestions/33844813

    We will have a look into it (since we are going to re-do all widgets) but I don't think that will happen in the near future - more likely mid term.

    One more thing about this: We are working on this for the O365 / G Suite integrations for admins to hide / deactivate the file library for users. So, they are encouraged to use other file storages instead like Google Drive or SharePoint.

    So, if you deactivate "My files" in the main dropdown, it will also hide the option to "Upload from file library" in the timeline.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Christoph, you are talking about "My files" in the top right dropdown, right? If so, we are working on this right now.

    Hey Angie,

    unfortunately there is no estimation, yet. This could be a quite sensitive topic regarding data privacy - so we wouldn't be able to track who has actually just viewed a blog article. We could track and display the count of viewers, though.

    Additionally, it could be possible to get an optional confirmation from the user (e.g. "I have read this article" or "Mark this article as read"). Would this be sufficient for you?
