Jump to solution

What is the black dot which appears to the left of a discussion before or after you pin it?

Howdy  @ppoulos ‌,

Thanks for your question and welcome to the community. The black dot is an "unread notification;" you can read more about them: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13108-415276774 

In that example on the page, their unread is blue. Sometimes, it's red. Depends on the institution's branding. Hope that helps,

Sky V.

Thanks so much for clearing this up.

As a sort of newcomer to Canvas, I always wonder if something like that indicates that students cannot see it, or if I've messed up.

Thanks again,
