Currently, the discussion posts are ordered from oldest to newest. A student/professor has to scroll or go to the last page and then scroll to get to the latest post.
Canvas REALLY needs to re-order this so that newest discussion posts appear at the top of the first page so that it is easy to find current conversations.
This topic had 100+ likes in the old community and I was really surprised not to see it on here already (I searched for this using several different search terms). I sure hope we don't have to go through and re-idea every single feature request that had at least 30 likes and was years old with no action or response from Instructure.
