Multiple Assignments for One Discussion Board?

Is it possible to have two separate assignments that use the same discussion board?


Our students are required to make an initial post by Wednesdays, and to respond to someone else's post by Fridays. We'd like to make two assignments--one for the initial post, and one for the response post--to simplify grading. However, we can't figure out a way to point both assignments to one discussion board. Our university's Canvas team can't figure it out, either, and their proposed solution was two separate boards for each week, and having students copy the post they're responding to from the first board to the second to post their reply. This is kind of tedious for students, and they're confused.


I'm open to suggestions.
