Threading messages

  • Idea
  • Updated 7 years ago
  • Implemented
At times there are SMS conversations I'd like saved (Both my sent message, and the other persons reply) to create a conversation or a threaded Message. I think the ability to thread messages together would be a great addition, also to have the messages I send to the Treasuremytext tagged as coming from myself (I can't add myself to my Address book, but you have my information on file already, so why not tag them as coming from myself?

We like this idea and are looking at ways to do it. We actually already do this with messages that you've sent from Treasuremytext, these will appear under that contact in a threaded view so all the support is there to do it.

The only reason we haven't done it yet with other saved messages is that it involves a little bit of extra UI work. We have to add a way for you to say both that it was you who sent the message and who it was you sent it too.

Once we've figured out an elegant way to do this which is simple to understand we'll add it.

Any suggestions welcomed...

That's great to hear. I look forward to hopefully seeing this feature soon!

Also, how would one go about getting an I <3 SMS sticker or two?? ;)

On the sticker idea, if you get some, make sure to upload them to Flickr and tag them "iheartsms" and "treasuremytext"!

We've put together a bit of a solution to this. Here's how it worked.

Any messages you have 'sent' to a contact will show in that contacts view including those saved from that person showing you the conversation.

To indicate that a message was sent to someone just follow these steps.

1. Set the contact of the message to the person you originally sent it to (click the messages contact icon where it says "edit")

2. Drag the message to the Sent folder

3. Click the contact in the left column to see your conversation.
