This 5 year old feature request that could fill a football stadium with number of upvotes really is the most fantastic troll you have to admire it
I can't believe that this is still not possible over a year later! This feature is the perfect definition of a quick-win: Add a "reply" button in the "..." menu of a message and on click prefill the text area with a quote of that message. Done. 2SP, implemented and shipped in half a sprint, 40k happy users.
when can we have this feature? seems like a really simple but extremely useful feature. right click and choose reply.
This feature should've been in the version 1.0
Please make this feature available

why should it take 43910 votes, and to be at the top of the list of topics and still be in the backlog....if Microsoft actually listened to the customer and not proceed with their head in the sand, they would fix this feature today!

Please make this feature available as soon as possible!
Please, just check how it is implemented in Slack and simply copy it... It isn't that hard.

I'm surprised this basic function needs to be requested here in uservoice.com and it has been more than a year and no progress on this. This is such a simple function we can find in any other chat app.
Also allow for Mute/snooze in case you are not interested in the threaded conversation
According to Houston JSC, this should be ready in about "another two weeks".
...Almost a year later...
