Townsendiv, at times I forget to respond or do what the message advised. Unfortunately the Verizon Messages + application doesn't have that capability. If this is something you would like to see you can provide feedback within the app to let the developers know. Within the app go to Settings > Menu > scroll to the bottom to submit feedback.
