I asked over 6 months ago when you guys updated comments about the return of Threaded Comments. I am really missing that, not really sure why they were shelved and without them I have issues keeping a good flow in my comment streams inside Entities.
Here is what I posted back in March:
So I’d like to formally request this feature.
Also, in that post I asked about another intuitive keyboard functionality - using ctrl + enter to post a comment. That’s how many, many chat apps work and it’s the most intuitive way I think to comment. Would love to hear your guys’ thinking on this - do you plan to return that, or keep just plain enter
as the way to submit a comment?
Second this, and in some places even Enter doesn’t work, you have to press a button I’m pretty sure. Would love to be able to commit comments with the keyboard and in a consistent way between highlight comments and extension comments in entity view.
Michael, really glad to hear about this. Just wanted to emphasize this from @Oshyan
This is a real pain point for me as well. I would like to vote for the ctrl+return as the primary method for committing the comments from the keyboard. To give some context, I really like the way ClickUp handles this, they give you a choice:
Hey, great thanks for reaffirming. Hoping this will come back when the Notifications next version comes along in not too long - I can wait a couple of months knowing that many of these features are pending…
And incidentally I had to edit this as I just posted through Discourse here by typing “ctrl” + “enter” on my keyboard
I wanted to bump this up. I am really missing this as we use comments more and more as my team continues to get into Fibery. The only way to right now effectively show you are responding to somebody is very laborious:
Copy text from the comment you want to respond to
Format it with “quotes” in your response to that person
Spend time fiddling with the formatting because quotes will take over entire groups of text, and I can’t figure out the logic. At times if I try to “hard return” on the next line to get out of the quotes formatting, that doesn’t work. Almost appears there is a bug here…
Think through do you want to repeat references if they are in the text you are trying to quote. This happens to us a lot. So if you copy the text from a colleague, you will get a double reference if he/she also had a reference in the copied text. Most of the time you don’t want the reference 2x, but there is no way around this other than deleting it, and then you lose part of the text you are trying to quote.
Again as I said at the start of this post, we had threads in Fibery before and they were useful, and really disappointing it is taking so long to bring them back.
I will also add that what would be even better is the ability to highlight text and then get the option to “quote” it in a new response. Something you can do here in Discourse, in Wrike, ClickUp, etc. - a host of other apps. I’m going to create a separate request for that because it’s a good functionality @Oshyan has also talked about with me. Here it is:
Hey everyone, it would be fantastic if we could have threaded comments that are organized based on replies. Currently, we can only use mentions, which makes it difficult to identify conversations. Additionally, having the ability to react with emojis would be a great addition.
