    Since our move from Blackboard to Canvas, one feature from Blackboard I miss is the ability to set up multiple threads in a single discussion board forum each week, where I assign a grade to the forum as a whole. It is cumbersome to set up several discussions each week both for the student (more clicks to get to the discussions) and for me (having to discern percentages for each thread rather than assigning a single grade for the whole week). I have found inconvenient workarounds, none as satisfying as Blackboard, where I could click on a student in the grader, see his/her work for the week all together, and assign a grade.
