Blue Dots Next To Discussion

Jump to solution

I am part of a discussion. I have read all the replies that I can see, but on List View, the discussion still shows a blue dot, indicating that there are unread messages.

When I click on the discussion, I can see 14/14 read messages. However, when I click on the course homepage > Discussions, I can see 21 read messages and 1 unread message.

I don't even care about reading that one unread message that I can't seem to access. How do I get rid of the blue dot?

NOTE: I have tried marking the entire discussion as read. Canvas will not let me.

Howdy,

 

To manually mark posts as read, you have to enable the setting -

Hi,

Thank you for replying! I have already tried doing this... and it essentially does nothing. This is because I do not have access to view the unread notification. When I look through each of the discussion replies, not a single one has a blue dot next to it.
