Can you turn off a student to student reply in Canvas discussion?  Remove the option to reply to another student's post?

Hi Melodi,

At this time I don't believe there is an "easy" button that allows for you to turn off the reply option to discussions. 

If this is something that truly needs to be removed you could look at adding some custom javascript  or css‌ that removes the option from the screen.

Below is a screen shot of the class that is associated with that button.

Hi  @melodi_kunn ‌!  I think you may be referring to Threaded VS Focused replies in discussions.  I have attached the Canvas guide to help!  https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10727-67952724152

Thank you for your response, but no, I am looking to remove replies to

posts altogether. Both threaded and focused still allow replies, just the

depth of nesting is more complex with the threaded option.

We want to post work for display only, like a closed environment Padlet.

We have discussed with the students to please do not reply to post at this

time for this particular Discussion. We are just looking for a quick

toggle off replies to this Discussion.

Thank you!

If you want to "toggle" on and off,  you may want to look at open and close dates.  

You can also open and close a discussion for comments from the Discussions page of the course.

Take a look at this canvas guide

Thank you for your help. I guess I am not making myself clear.

I do not want a reply option to a post that a student has made.
