Discussion feature - save as draft and subject headers?

Hi there,


One of the things that has helped me in teaching over the years is the ability to create draft posts/replies in the discussion, save it, and go back and finish later. Is there a "save as draft" capability in the discussion tool that I am missing?


In addition, in threaded discussions, I'm used to having a  subject header (allows students to post their thread, and other students to find it easily). Is there a configuration for the discussion that allows one to post a subject? Or is there only the initial forum post?  I ask my students to use the first line of their post to post the subject (so others can find it easily when the forums are collapsed) but I did not know if there was perhaps a configuration that is missing?


On that subject, is there a setting that allows one to have the default for discussions to collapse the replies (save scrolling), as opposed to  wide open? Again, so people can rapidly scan a list of posts for specific content.


Thank you!
