Business Consulting For The 21st Century Via A Holistic & Intelligent Approach

Dear Microsoft, please add threaded replies to Yammer

Consumed => “Collaboration Done Right – Eight Tools to Help” by Keith Bryant on Speckyboy Design Magazine.

Thanks Keith.

Helpful but not quite the target I was hoping to see you hit.

I’ve been searching and searching for a tool on the order of Google Wave. Something that can be used to have collaborative (and threaded) conversations. In short, email in 2012 is just about useless for anything more than, “What are you doing for lunch?” I hate email for collaboration. That right. I said it. An I bet I’m not alone.

I’ve tried Yammer and it’s close but the replies aren’t threaded and thus a conversation and sub-conversation is very difficult to follow. If Microsoft can added threaded replies to Yammer the world will be a much better place.

I’ve even considered whipping up (invite-only) WP installs on a project by project basis and using the P2 theme. P2 used to seem like a long way to go to have a decent online conversation. Now it’s starting to look like the promise land.

Perhaps someone else can offer a viable alternative that’s client-friendly?
