Idea name: Edit messages
Description: Users should be able to edit their messages. Any message that was altered will have a flag indicating that the content was edited as well as the date this edition happened. If any user clicks / taps over an edited message, they will be able to see the previous versions of the messages in a popup.
Use case: As a user, I want to edit my messages so that i can replace their content while still being able to look at the edit history
Target user: Any user
Why this is important: This is useful to correct spelling errors, grammar, incorrect information, etc, while still being able to look at how the message has changed over time
Any other comments:
This should be technically viable by adding an optional attribute to the message payload indicating which
messageId is being replaced (this is similar to the
responseTo attribute used for replies)
If you think this is a great idea and know how to implement it, consider posting a project proposal on Assemble.
