Copy Discussion with Instructor Prompts

We are migrating to Canvas from Blackboard. I am currently working with our distance librarian, who is added as a faculty member in several courses and provide a lesson on library instruction.  He (among other faculty) would like to create a single graded discussion that includes various prompts/questions for the students to reply to. For now, he has replied to his own discussion to create these prompts.  We notice when we copy the discussion, none of the replies are included.  The same thing happens when using Commons. For this instructor, recreating this discussion board and each prompt over and over again is not ideal. Does anyone have any suggestions for creating a single graded discussion with multiple instructor threads that can be reused?  We would also appreciate any other creative solutions that could address this need.

Thank you,
