Reply boxes instead of new message when responding to activity link
When clicking a notification users are required to click a small "Reply"button to reply to a message.
The interface is a little confusing as there's a text box immediately under the notification however, if you type into it, it starts a completely new thread.
All the functionality is there and, if you look closely, the text box does have light grey "Type a new message" text however it's not very intuitive and, as a result, we have many new threads started which should be replies.
Perhaps, when clicking an activity notification, it would be better to have the Reply text box automatically open and the New Message text box as a clickable link to begin new.
Or just don't have the link for the reply box and always have it ready to go to make it more visually obvious (attached capture 2)
