moderated Re: Reply options #suggestion


 

Tom,

I would like to suggest simplifying the process by eliminating the
private button and having 2 reply buttons, "Reply to Group & Sender"
and "Reply to Sender," hot when the settings are set to"Group and
Sender."
When the Private Reply (aka Direct Reply, aka Reply to Sender) feature was first implemented in the group's messages section it was done that way, two buttons for the user to choose from.

That raised a problem for some groups with Reply to Group as default: they reported that members were too often mistakenly hitting the wrong button, and a reply would go to the sender rather than the group. Then that replying member would complain about their message not posting. So this extra step and the physical separation was introduced to mitigate that concern.
