Joining 'replies' to the 'comment' replied to

I wish, wish, wish replies to a comment would attach themselves somehow to that comment, and not appear as just another comment.

There is no difference currently between a comment and a reply to a comment, other than the reply appearing with an automatic @ , which is easy enough to do manually.

So if you have several comments and several replies to different comments in a List, the result is a horrible jumble.

@Ian Campbell the best way to do this is to copy the previous comment and prefix paragraphs you're replying to with ">", so you can interleave your replies

Hi me also want's to know how to get reply option in the comment box.

Thanks for the suggestion Iain.

Am I right in thinking, though, that it will only work for multiple replies to a comment from the same person. If you have a number of people, including the original commenter, replying to the same comment, all those replies cannot be joined together?

This is what I need.

@Ian Campbell no there's no conversation threading. If you wanted to thread a conversation you could create a card to hold that conversation, and link it to the original, so you'd split off conversation threads into sub-cards:

Or you could use Slack or Hangouts Chat for threaded conversations :)
