i set up a workflow so that when a current user sends another user a message, a message is created, and a messaging thread between the two users is created. the user has a messaging inbox, which is a repeating group that displays all of the messaging threads that the current user is either the creator or receiver of the messaging thread (and the messages inside each messaging thred).
the problem is that this creates a new messaging thread each time. so yeah a message is created and added to the messaging thread, as i want it to, but a new message thread is created so it is just multiples of the same messaging thread, only with the repeating group displaying the latest message.
i am trying to make sure that the messaging thread is only created once, and so that the message inbox repeating group displays the message thread with the newest message, just like an inbox or sms.
how do i keep the user from creating a new messaging thread each time?
