Threaded comments

As comments are made on a feature, sometimes there are questions that come up that are unrelated to the other comments that have been entered. It would be much easier if I could just reply to the comment and the thread is kept/read in that fashion. This way I am not having to hunt thru a list of comments to try and find the answer to a question, or have to write more just to explain which comment I am replying to.

    Case in point, I forgot to include that this is NOT JUST FOR IDEAS rather for the broader comment functionality on initiatives, features, etc. AND I cannot comment on my last comment with this additional comment :)

    YES this is a big issue for us, especially as we get used to other tools like Teams that have threading so responses can be tied to the specific comment.

    The Comments thread can get pretty lengthy on Ideas. I would be nice to respond to an individual comment rather than at the very bottom of the thread.

    Also, being able to @-mention customer users rather than just internal users.

    This is a key feature to get organizational feedback on a feature. Conversation often involves very diverse issues brought up by the various departments (e.g. Architects, QA, Sales...). Having all comments in a single thread gets confusing and dispersive, stemming the conversation.

    And if these are going to be threaded they really ought to have a subject line to them in the UI and the outbound email.


Answer to specific comment at feature level

It is quite common that a feature initiates parallel discussions. At this moment, comments are only time-based ordered: it would be needed that I could answer a specific comment, creating a visual indentation (thread).
