Ability to view discussion board before available date.

Jump to solution

If I create a discussion board and publish it, are the students able to view the content before the availability date?

Hello,  @spucel  Welcome to the Canvas Community! My testing indicates that students will be able to see the discussion, but will not be able to view its contents. I created a graded discussion that is not available until 6/1/2017, published it, and then masqueraded as a student. Here's what the student sees:

What the student sees on the Discussions tab:

But here's what I, the teacher, can see:
