how to change the order of files in discussion

Accepted Solutions

Hello  @ejf2129 , if you would like discussions to be ordered in a particular order, you will one them to be in the pinned area.  These will show in the order you place them at the top of the discussion tab for students.  Discussions in the unpinned area will organize based on most recent activity in the thread.  Otherwise discussions in the two areas function the same.  

This is described a bit on this document, How do I move or reorder a discussion in a course?, where it states:

You can move or reorder https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13065-4152123560 in the Pinned Discussions section. You can manually drag and drop the discussion, or you can use the Move To option, which is also accessible for keyboard users.

Note: Only discussions in the Pinned Discussions section can be reordered manually. Other sections are automatically ordered by recent activity date.

I hope this helps and best wishes!

 @ejf2129 ...

I'm not clear on what you are asking.  Could you please give some additional detail for us?  Maybe also include a screen shot or two (being sure not to include any identifying information from students...such as grades/names/e-mail addresses, etc.)  Looking forward to hearing back from you soon!

Thank you

I am tutor and settingup Discussion threads (oneeach week). I can pin and

un pin but once I unpin them i cannot change the order of the threads as

they appear in the 'Discussion' area. I hope this is clear.....how do I

change the order in which they are stored in the 'unpin' section!

Thank you
