1. Inbox Experience, Threaded Conversations
In real time conversations you cannot reply to a specific message when several other messages have followed that message; with no option of viewing a summary; nor can you have a contextual conversation for documents, images, tasks, polls, approval requests, messages.
We have identified that in a conversation group/channel there can be multiple topics being discussed with each topic having its own contextual significance. The same can be easier to follow if the contextual messages are easy to read, clubbed together; as in a single “thread”. So in effect each contextual conversation will have its own “thread”; and the conversation group will have multiple threads for multiple contextual conversations. We can take the analogy from an email thread which carries all the context in one place; but applying that principle to real time conversations via “Contextual Threaded Conversations”.
Zapty now has Contextual Threaded Conversations for
- Conversations in a task
- Conversations in a choice poll, number poll or a text poll
- Conversations in an approval request
- Conversations on a file upload
- Annotations for an image, or
- Simply a threaded discussion/conversation initiated on a message
Contextual conversation for an image
Contextual conversation for a task

5. Task layout updates
Task Information has been re-organized for the user; so that they are able to clearly view relevant Information in the Info TAB
- Set a deadline
- Add Notes
- Add checklist items to the task
- View recent messages within the task, view all messages and reply (Messages TAB)
The Messages TAB is where you communicate in context of this task.
Send messages, add subtasks, polls, approvals, attach images, files here.
Subtasks have their own TAB instead of a menu option called “View Subtasks”
Threads TAB is for all threaded communication in the Parent task. For example if there are messages within a subtask or an annotation on an image which is uploaded within the task; they will appear here. You can open each one and read the context.
