Reply textbox should be visible for last message (cklick Reply no needed)
IT would promote proper usage of chat (replaying for messages)

I have a large Team and we are working on building it to be around 1,000 members or more. Many are new to teams and not hitting reply so the conversation space clogs up. I am concerned they are going to move away from Teams if this is not corrected. And many are clinicians in a large health system they already ignore email as it gets to messy. if we don't fix this Teams is going to be another inbox.

I agree. Having to click "Reply" makes it too easy to start a new conversation when we type in the message box. What makes it more confusing is that the function of the message box is different than in other apps, and even Teams' own "Chat" function -- which functions like a normal chat messenger.
