The indicator number on the discussion board icon located on the course card or course tiles on the dashboard seems to change, but has nothing to do with when the discussion boards are read. Is it when new discussion boards are created? How does that number go down, is what I am wondering about.
Hi @rmthomas ...
Both of these Guides say that this number indicates "the number of new activity items published in the course", but it really doesn't say much more than that. You might want to post a message to the bottom of one of those Guides (or maybe even both) asking if the Canvas Docs Team would consider adding clarification to the documentation that tells more about the number that is generated. Here are the links for you:
I hope this helps, Rita!
Can the Doc team clarify how this number on the Discussion indicator on a course card is generated, is it re settable, and more. I am getting questions from professors about this and they want it to change or go away.
