The replies don't help on the readability of the forum, specially when people start replying everything and most of the content on the post is just copy of what was said. This makes very hard to read the forum and we need to scroll a lot.We have 3 options to change this.

  1. Delete the reply option
  2. Hide the reply part by default
  3. Just show the beginning of the post we are replying removing images and everything which is not plain text

Hi Marcelo.


We just started working on your idea, so I set the status to “Working on it”. We expect it to be ready during Q4. I’ll post an update once it’s done!


Thanks again for your great idea!


Cheers

Merged this idea with 'Forums: Reply to part of Post' (created on 13 Nov 2019 22:04:31 by Gonçalo Soares)

Forums: The Reply To feature is great, but often the inclusion of the entire text body is too much, specially when there are multiple, embedded replies.


Often, a Forum user only wants to reply to part of a previous post.

Creating some sort of "highlight and reply" functionality would help here, to avoid needing to manually delete unwanted text from the original post.


This would also reduce the duplication of text and need for scrolling when reading a Forum thread end-to-end with lots of embedded replies.

I agree... only part of post can be included.

Hi, 

I personally find it highly annoying that when someone replies to a post all content of that post is included. This includes the post(s) that the other replied upon. This creates an enormous post that doesn't improve readability. 

An example can be found here (but there are loads of examples to be found): https://www.outsystems.com/forums/discussion/58922/passing-id/ (screenshot below)

There is a post in there that contains 3 replies and only the bottom one is needed for readability. 

Can the reply function be changed in such a way that only the message of the person that I replied to is included?

Hi,

I agree, but there are already ideas on this matter:

Hi,

OutSystems is already working on the next generation of the forum in which this will be addressed.

Hi Marcelo,


We're happy to announce that this idea was implemented in the new Forum experience.

From now on,  you can reply in thread and by doing it we'll not copy the previous answer, making it easier to read the whole discussion.


Hope you like it!

Cheers,

Tânia
