Many of us are waiting to hear about the timeline for discussions redesign - for my university the anonymous function is specifically important for many of our users.
Unfortunately Instructure doesn't keep the roadmap updated:
Q4 (November and December) hasn't been published yet, and the webpage says "Features for this quarter will be posted before October 2021." It is now October 6, 2021.
I've been in contact with our CSM for updates to the Q4 roadmap and asked this question at a recent "What's New in Canvas" webinar, but the "around September 15" and then "before/around October 1" promises have not been kept.
