    The notification links provided through notification emails should link to the actual post that the email is in reference to, rather than the entire discussion. If it could anchor to the actual post, the need to search through the long string of discussions would be avoided.

     

    Moodle had this 4 years ago and from my understanding, it is a simple change to putting a permalink in the notification rather than a general link to the discussion.  This permalink exists because using the search function (or unread button) to filter posts will reveal the permalink by clicking on "view in discussion"
