it would be nice if I could create a submission form that lets users post/reply to other users like in a standard forum. If this is already out there please let me know cause I attempted to do this to look like the "issue tracker" but there is no documentation telling explaining the setup. http://demo.gravityview.co/blog/view/issue-tracker/
Try using GravityFlow > Discussion Fields.
It keeps the reply’s to the single entry and is easy to load in using there merge tag.
We’ve used this in the past for reply’s or ticket issues.
