Organizing Discussion Forum Posts with Most Recent at Top

Jump to solution

Hi Folks,

I'm wondering is there any way to set up a Discussion with alternate sorting...I like setting them up for participation all semester long and it gets old scrolling down to see what the newest post is...Is there any way to set the default so that new posts appear at the top?

Best,

Paul

Hi

12 months later and it is still an issue. Our course is goes for around 15 months so the forum is very long.

The ability to reorder should be reconsidered.

Hi, This is an issue for our students - would love to hear when this is going to be addressed? Facebook and other online forums default is most recent at the top. We would at least like the option to choose sort order,
