Announcements Is Missing an Option to Allow Students to Reply

Jump to solution

I would like to allow students to reply to posts I make in Announcements. Unfortunately, the option to do so that I see listed in other examples is not included. Instead, I only have the options to "Delay posting", "Allow liking", and "Enable podcast feed". How can I add an option to leave comments? Thank you.

Hi charliericcardelli@gmail.com Welcome to the Canvas Community.  Thanks for posting your question.  In your course, go to your Settings page, and scroll to the very bottom.  Click on the more options link.  You should see a check-box option near the bottom for Disable comments on announcements.  Make sure this is unchecked.  If it is checked, uncheck it, and then click the Update Course Details button.

More information can be found here: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-9994-4152101246 

I hope this helps, Charlie.
