    Similar to how Facebook notifies you when someone replies to your specific post, I would like this feature in Canvas.

    In nearly all of my classes, we are required to make postings and answer student replies. However, there is not a notification feature that indicates when a student has commented on your specific post. We only receive general notifications that a student in your class has commented or posted something. On Facebook, this is called: "Activity that involves you" : You'll always get notifications about activity that involves you, like when someone tags you in a photo or comments on your post.

    Essentially, I want to know when someone has replied to my specific post so I can address them back.

    Currently, the notification options for Discussions are far to general (attached below)
