Discussion Post

Is there any way that the discussion post threads could be automatically expanded instead of having to click on each top of the discussion board to have this done manually each time? It is one extra step that I have to do every time I go to the discussion board and I would imagine everyone is having to look at the replies?

Hello @LisaWild 

Are you talking about grading a discussion in speedgrader? By default, the student posts should populate in speedgrader per student. If it doesn't show and says "view full discussion" it may be a way you set it up. Is it a group discussion? Are all students in the appropriate group? If a student was left out but still replied, their posts won't populate in speedgrader. If you're not talking about speedgrader at all, you just mean threaded reply posts? It may depend on the discussions that are set up at the admin level. If threaded replies do not automatically populate in full, unfortunately you may just need to click "view replies" to populate them. Some discussions have hundreds and hundreds of replies and this is to save space and loading times. You may want to speak with your institution or Canvas Support directly who can look at the specifics of these discussions and the setup on an admin level.
