    I like that idea. Could be interesting for other widgets (e.g. Do you know? Widget), too.

    Hey Aftab,

    1. for information purposes you can use the description of any field or the description field of the form itself. Does that help in your case?

    2. This is not planned right now, no.

    3. This would be very complex to configure and because the configuration is already quite complicated. So, I would rather not add this feature unless there is lot of users demanding this.

    If I get this right you would like to make the use of the chat optional?

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Yes, that's being planned. We'll also need the O365 integration for that, though.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Unfortunately this is due to technical limitations. We are converting the documents to pdf internally using a third party library. Unfortunately, the library sometimes struggles a bit with some Word documents. We hope that we can resolve this issue when we start integrating O365 and are switching to use Microsofts API directly.

    Usually we try to keep the app configuration as simple as possible. Anyways, I also see the use case that you are describing. Let's see how many votes this idea gets.

    Jan Marquardt responded

    The problem with this feature is that it actually poses a security risk. Linking to local files might be useful, but at the same time it opens up your users to malware risks. This is the reason why we do not currently allow file:// links in COYO.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Does the idea only imply enabling the file:// protocol or linking to files on shared network storage?

    Hey Christian, I love the idea to highlight new posts. I totally agree that is is quite difficult to see which posts are new.

    To be honest, I struggle a bit with your other ideas. How (and actually why) should forum posts be displayed in the timeline? Isn't it quite confusing if the show up in between regular posts?

    Regarding the sorting: As far as I know it is the default for all popular forums that the newest post is listed at the end - but maybe it would help to make it easier to navigate to the last page?

    Hey Jörg, can you clarify this a bit and maybe give an example?

    Why CSV? What would you like to achieve with a CSV export? Wouldn't ICS be more better to import events into Outlook for example?

    Thanks for the great feedback! I agree that it makes sense to add both features: mark / save posts to be viewed later and also get notified about posts at some point in the future. I also like the idea to connect this feature to the task app.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    I think this feature adds value to the product and it's planned to be implemented again. I was wondering whether we should implement it the same way it was before in COYO 3. There you could mark a post and on your global timeline you had a filter to show all posts you have marked before.

    Another idea would be to set a date for a reminder. You can choose when COYO is reminding you of a specific post via notification. If you click on that notification you will be linked to that specific post.

    This would have the advantage of being more flexible. We could also attach this to messages, forum posts or basically any content. The disadvantage would be that the user does not get an overview of his or her marked posts.

    Any thoughts?

    What version of COYO do you use?

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    When creating a link button widget you can remove the tick at "Open in new window?". That should do the trick.

    Does this solve your problem?

    Yeah, I see the point. I am just wondering what to display after the user clicked on that notification?

    Exactly. You will need the version 7 of the COYO server. But its not really far away - your admin can upgrade from 3 to 7 directly.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Ah I see - got it! The app group title are actually already visible on mobile devices. We changed that with version 7.0.x.

    So, whats missing is collapsable app groups - right?

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Do you have any particular navigation boxes in mind?

    Hey Jenny, you mean in case one user is creating an event (and so being the admin of that event), but not participating?

    Can you provide a little more information? Where exactly would you like to have an undo function?

    Hey Christoph, at the moment you can sort the columns by clicking their heading. Manual sorting would not work with that approach.

    Unfortunately there are no plans to extend the statistics section at the moment, right now. What missing user actions are you thinking about?

    Would it solve your problem if you could download all files in a folder? Cause this is something we are developing right now: https://coyo.uservoice.com/admin/v3/suggestions/32219935/activity

    Unfortunately the topic is quite complex and not as easy to integrate. We need to find an easy way to make multiple category topics manageable.

    We added the possibility to combine categories with the latest releases. At least this gives you the possibility to refine your search for pages and workspaces.

    We are aware that grouping categories is still important to some of our customers and would add a benefit to the product. Nevertheless it's not a topic we are focussing on right now.
