Wall messages ordered by latest reply


#1

This one was a suggestion of @tomasz… Messages on the wall should be ordered by the lastest activity, meaning that whenever a message gets a new reply, the thread would be moved up. Other users including me thought this would make more sense. Any opinion from other foodsaving groups?


#2

I agree. This is how all the forums work and this is probably the most intuitive for end users.


#3

I’m form the same group (Warsaw), but I didn’t even know that Tomek suggested it. It makes sense to me to do it this way.


#4

Yep, sounds not bad! It’s just not easy to implement since the wall is not a forum but a chat with threaded replies and thus the order is working only based on the actual wall messages and not replies. Could be changed - of course - but would be a major feature and will thus take a while…

It this is a major feature, I’d recommend not to do it since it’s not of the highest importance, in my opinion. This is a nice to have feature and I think we can live without it :slight_smile: There are other features which are more important.

This is also related to something that came up in the recent usability tests (not able to follow old threads).

I added an issue to investigate feasibility of this feature: https://github.com/yunity/karrot-frontend/issues/1334

I assume that it’s not very hard from a data logic point-of-view, but needs a different user interface (chat vs wall vs forum). Our current UI is a mix of Slack and facebook, the new UI could be derived from discourse?
