Why can’t mobile reply in line to discussion?

Jump to solution

I’ve looked but I can’t find this. Please direct if this is a repeat.

 

Is there a reason you can’t reply in line to discussions in the mobile app? On the web you can still read and interact with other posts while writing a reply, but in the mobile app the reply window takes over the app completely and you can’t see what you’re replying to. Current solution is taking a screenshot of posts, or only using the web interface.

 @cameron_redsell ‌, 

Unfortunately, there is no way to minimize the reply window to view other posts in a discussion. I could definitely see how this would be problematic. It would be better if it acted like an email where I could minimize (swipe down the reply window) or save a draft if I need to reference another part of the discussion thread or course. 

I suggest you create a Canvas Idea so you can share this use case and allow the community to vote and discuss it.
