Request for threaded chat

Aaron Bartell 2 years ago in Chat • updated by Amin Mohammed 10 months ago 2

In our Ryver community (ibmioss) we have a lot of chats that get promoted to posts and that is very confusing if you started a chat and it was promoted to a post by somebody else (you wonder "where'd it go?"). I then need to go to the posts tab and start looking. Instead it would be good if an existing chat could be marked as a post and that would start a form of indentation within the chat pane. This means the post tab would go away. This would also necessitate a "Filter" feature on the chat pane (maybe refactored to not be named chat, because posts would also be there) that would allow just posts to be displayed.


I don't want to derail this feature that's already planned. But I did want to convey that the current approach is not immediately intuitive (and even after understanding the feature I still get lost).

We understand that there is some desire for threaded chat conversations right within the chat tab. We are considering that for the future, but there is a significant amount of work involved.


In the mean time, since Ryver also has the POSTS tab, which is like a Facebook (TM) wall for your Team or Forum, we felt that providing an option to copy a chat transcript into a Post and then comment on that post would be a useful feature.

Should check twistapp for how thread/posts interface should be handled
