This suggestion is still planned. I don’t have further updates on timing, but will share as we have them. Thanks.
I am talking about team channel conversations, not chat in general.
But chat in general has to get better or people will stay with slack for their one single important feature..
The biggest issue is that new conversations are started too easily, but part from that you also miss /expand /collapse so all threads could be collapse or expanded
We have been iterating on different designs and are starting to test internally. I don’t have a timeframe but will keep you posted.
It would help if you by default answered on the last thread instead of starting a new conversation by default, this is what is causing it all.
Thanks to those of you who participated in the session with our user research team. We are continuing to work on this important feature, and will update you as we get closer to completing. ~ Alex
