How to Reply or Quote messages that are posted in Stride?

Any normal chat tool has an option of responding to the particular message by clicking on it. It is currently lacking in Stride or am I missing something?

@Lauren Harrison, do you still feel that your answer is valid, in spite seeing these many responses?

This is an essential feature for us too. Even facebook messenger and whatsapp implement those functionalities...

Introduce particular message reply feature fast. On priority. Otherwise this app will start fading away soon

Agreed. Actually, my employees don't even like it at the moment, but I'm stretching to give Stride a chance.... 

That's exactly what I'm going through! hahaha

Guys, when are you going to implement this feature?  When you have multiple people active in a chat box it is kinda hard to reply to someone without being able to quote them. Big miss here... 

We moved from slack to stride and also need this feature fast. My team starts to move back to slack and explains this because of missing reply feature.... Please tell us, if there is sense in waiting or not. thx

Doesn't look like anything is going to happen here "fast". We had to move back yesterday to Slack. Good luck

We can use markdown ">" and copy paste the message to reply. But, that's too much work!

I can deal with the lack of threading, though I see the value in it. But not being able to reference / quote a message you're replying to is ridiculous, it's such a basic functionality.

Hi Mohan,

We don't have message threading, or the ability to reply to messages in Stride. 

Isn't that a basic necessity? Any plans of bringing this feature?

Also, coming from Slack, my team and I are missing the emoji reactions very much. They are such a good way to replace answers like "ok", "good", ...

@Mohan Raj Dhanapal, threading is something that we decided not to build because we believe it takes away from the chat experience. 

@Moritz Lang, we are currently working on emoji reactions! They will be coming middle of this year. 

The ability to quote and reply to messages would be highly appreciated. 

@Lauren Harrisonplease add message quoting. It´s the easiest way to focus on a multi-topic room.

You can use quote formatting, but there is no way to click to quote a message. That's something that's coming in the future. 

We also feel the need to reply to certain messages. When we are at meetings and come back we don't have the option to reply to certain messages in a large group room. I hope this is coming soon.

add replying and quoting. Also, I can't get how I should use "decision" and "Action" feature. I think you're on wrong side

In my honest opinion a missing feature for room reply and quote is a big design flaw and will definatly be a dealbreaker for my company


I kind of like the decision and task thing but seriously, that would be like a car with the beast voice assistant but no wheels.


I kinda suggest to implement a propper room and message delete as well as a deep structure of room hirarchy - this would be a big deal against other soloutions like slack

It's a kind of sucks. There is no message replies, there is no message threading, there is no possibility to pin certain messages. It provides just a basic set of chatting features and no more. And this product is promoting as product for IT. It's funny. It's not just falling short compared to Slack for working, it even worse than Telegram.

@Lauren Harrison, about threading in Stride and a decision you guys made to not include threading as a part of Stride - did you get customer feedback on this? It seems like, it is a dealbreaker for lots of people here (including us). We love the deep-ish Jira integration in Stride (nothing Slack cannot do)... but we moved away from Slack because it was slow and because Stride is an Atlassian family. However now we see that Stride lacks basic Slack features. In my opinion, if those are not done as a priority, people will be leaving Stride
