Community Member for Discussion Board Posts

I know the request for enabling for Discussion Board posts has been a topic addressed in these forums for years, but after some forum searching and reading inefficient and ineffective "workarounds" (ex: having students post their initial responses in a assignment AND a discussion board post), I'm wondering if Canvas still has plans to enable for discussion board posts.

I appreciate any information about this feature or if Canvas plans or doesn't plan on enabling it.

Thank you!

Hello @alexandra_dimak and @concofme ...

This would be the Feature Idea to follow so that you can stay up-to-date on whether or not Turnitin would work in conjunction with Discussion posts:

Enable Turnitin for Discussion Posts - Canvas Community

Sorry that I don't have better news for you, but I hope this has helped to answer your question.

I'm an instructor who assigns weekly discussion posts. Enabling Turnitin within Canvas would be a very useful feature!
