I thought I saw a post on this a couple months ago but couldn't find it so I hope this isn't a duplicate.
Our company is on the cusp of choosing a group chat tool and we want to choose HipChat. But we have several teams that have been using free Slack for 6-8 months and they really like the threaded messaging ability. We also took a close look at Ryver, and while they do it differently than Slack they also have threaded messages.
Is this going to be added to HipChat? If so, any feel for when?
Thanks Ville Manninem for filing the feature request https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/HCPUB-2004, we all can vote and commented there now.
A chat room without a good thread system is useless for team work, it stays as a notification area or a single thread discussion, slow team productivity. It reminds me of having a concurrent processor rather than a true parallel one
There seems to be nothing but crickets listening to this question. It is a very important question however. We also consider conversation threads / discussions / topical threads (whatever you want to call them) an absolute MUST for selection. We have been using Unison and depend on this feature. We'd like to use HipChat but cannot find any information on whether this feature is planned or not.
Has anyone here tried to submit a feature request for threaded messages/conversations/comments in HipChat?
I posted a tweet about it yesterday during the keynote (Innovation in Team Collaboration) and got this response from HipChat's Twitter account:
...have mention name FirstnameLastname. Fe.: @MaartenCautreels This certainly helps to know who is being mentioned in a conversation. Imagine your colleague sends the following message...
