Discussions, from year to year.

Jump to solution

When I recreate a Canvas course site based on a previous year's version of the site, are the contents of Discussion forums erased? 

I hope that Discussions will transfer without the content. 

Thanks, Matthew

Good morning, @mstavros ...

That is correct.  Only your discussion topic text will copy over from course to course.  None of the replies from you or your students would copy from one course to another.  Think of it this way...students in one course aren't usually enrolled in the same course again...and so it wouldn't make sense for students in the new course to see discussion postings from students in the old course.  Your discussion boards would start to fill up over time if this was the case.

Hope this helps.  Let Community members know if you have any other questions about this...thanks!
