Threads keep discussions in Vizlib Teamwork organised. They let you ask questions, add context or give feedback on a specific message, all without disrupting a conversation's flow. A thread will remain connected to its original message.
Why use threads?
- Clearly tie your feedback and thoughts to a specific message or file.
- Organise conversations and preserve meaningful context.
- Encourage open discussion without distracting others.
How to start a new thread?
When hovering over a comment of your choice, you will see icons popping up. Click on the to pop up the thread.
Alternatively, if there are already some comments posted in the threads, you will see the number of replies in the footer of the message. Simply click when hovering over it, to get to the threaded discussion.
How to share a threaded message?
With Vizlib Teamwork, you have the possibility to share & distribute a comment, including its whole threaded discussion, via eMail or Slack.
TO do this, share your comment as usual by clicking on when hovering and choose "Attach replies", when sharing:

Tips for using threads
- Avoid hiding information in threads.
A thread's discussion won't appear in a channel's main view unless you share your reply with the channel. If other members would benefit from seeing your message, share it in the channel rather than in a thread.
- Use threads for detailed responses
For detailed responses, which typically involve a lot of characters and text, try to use threads to avoid disrupting the readability of the channel.
- Is my response relevant to everyone?
If my response is not meaningful to everyone reading the channel, then perhaps a threaded reply is most suited.
