How do I allow users to report a reply in a discussion in Discussions Redesign as an instructor?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I allow users to report a reply in a discussion in Discussions Redesign as an instructor?

If Discussions Redesign is enabled by your institution, you can allow students to report replies from the Discussions page.  Once enabled, all users can report replies by clicking the Options icon for the reply and clicking the Report link. When a reply is reported by a user, the user must indicate why the reply is being reported (inappropriate, offensive and/or abusive, or other). Reporting a reply cannot be undone.

Discussions Redesign is currently a beta feature. Some discussion settings and features in the classic Discussions interface may not function or be available in Discussions Redesign.

Notes:

  • If Discussions Redesign is not available in your course, it has not been enabled by your institution.
  • If a student creates a discussion that includes a file, the file will be added to the unfiled folder in course files.
