I know I'm wasting my time here, because I've posted countless complaints about how things (don't) work in Canvas and nothing ever changes, but here I am again, because I don't know where else to go with it. Maybe a friendly user will have a hack?
Things have been... "updated" recently. Now, when I select "Unread" in a Discussion, I can't just reply to the next unread message; I have to make another click so I can "View in Discussion". I don't want to view in discussion. I want to read and reply only to my students' unread posts in their first discussion for the term.
Why does Canvas keep "fixing" things that aren't broken!?
