Ability to a comment/reply thread to a post in groups
Allow clients or trainers to comment on a post in a group so we don't end up cluttering the main group feed.

Is this still a priority for Trainerize? We're on the cusp of needing to move our group off the Trainerize platform which would not be ideal. Too many clients have mentioned that they can't engage in the group chat b/c there's too much activity and things get lost too quickly.
This is a must! I had just 4 members in a group chat and it was crazy making having to scroll up and understand who was replying to who. Being able to foster a community is crucial in today’s competitive market and the chat is a game changer, but it is not conducive to productivity or ease of use how it is currently set up. In addition to reply threads, we need to be able to PIN messages to the top and have ANNOUNCEMENT BOARDS where the trainer and keep important messages and not have these lost in the chat. Also having a better way to organize shared files by categories of what’s being shared. Additional emoji options would be great, too.

in the message section be able to create a custom title of that thread

Is there an update at all as to whether these ideas around groups are being implemented or they are not possible? I.e this one to reply to a thread, along with things like being able to pin a comment so it's seen without scrolling, save links to the side of the group etc? This is my biggest piece of feedback I constantly receive that the group is too overwhelming because you can't keep up with or reply to anything specifically

This would be incredible! I am currently researching into an external group chat app to solve this issue, but a poll with my members dictated they would much rather keep things in trainerize.
Additionally, more advanced filter options within the private inbox would be great. It's very hard to keep up with 1-1 messages in there considering the vast number of auto-messages that are sent to members who don't have 2-Way Messaging enabled

Definitely need this ability in order to utilize it in our group coaching!

Be able to reply to individual messages.
It would be great if in Trainerize messenger we could click on client response to quote it, and then reply to exactly what he said.
This would be good, because sometimes there are a lot of messages going back and forth and sometimes it can get confusing to what are we (or they) replying to.
Thanks for voting! :)

Any update on this?
Rachel Nigro commented
Can we get this feature asap?!
Please add the ability to respond to specific messages in the messenger (similar to how you are able to with Instagram, Facebook, Whatsapp, etc).
Coach Tate commented
Click reply to each messages- similar to whats app. Would be really helpful
Aleana Myers commented
YES! This would be so helpful in creating a better community vibe within our groups. Right now it's so hard to respond to previous messages.
Hey TZ team! Any progress/update here? I think this would make a big difference for group communication! Thanks!

I had to turn off the group comments because my clients sent a 👍🏻 In response to a post, and I ended up with 20 thumbs down the group feed. I would love to allow for more interaction within my groups, but the way it’s currently set up doesn’t provide an effective group feed, where a community is able to grow. My coaching content gets lost.
Jeanette Marcotte commented
As much as I like autoposts for the workouts as encouragement, they make it impossible to have a conversation or answer questions within the chat because the entire chat is autoposts.
I would love to see them in separate side by side columns so participants can see the autoposts AND we can have a useable chat forum. I want any questions I answer and tips that I post to be visible for the next people who log on and I want group members to feel encouraged to chat and ask those questions.

Like Facebook comments. You should be able to have a thread of comments under a specific post.
Lexie Ward commented
Definitely would be a helpful feature! We're using Facebook groups now too, but not all our members are on Facebook.
Heather Kiddoo commented
We have a TON of clients using the healthystepsnutrition platform that are starting Facebook groups, what's app groups and using other apps because the Group Chat feature in Trainerize is so cumbersome.
Update the group chat feature to include the ability to:
1. Directly comment on another person's post rather than having to comment later on in the feed
2. Add more than one picture at a time
THESE UPDATES WOULD BE A GAME CHANGER AND WOULD MAKE THIS ALREADY AWESOME APP MUCH MORE USER FRIENDLY.
For us - group interaction is HUGE by helping us spark engagement which helps keep clients longer.
