Transform accidentally created discussions into replies?

For some reason it’s a default in Canvas that students can start their own discussion area (WHYYYYYY) and I’m supporting a class where at this point 8-9 students have “introduced” themselves by posting a whole new discussion instead of replying to the “introduction” discussion. I have removed the permission so that they cannot start their own discussions (which should not be a default, if I may give that feedback) Now this means that there are a ton of discussions that should have been replies to the introductions thread, all of which have been created by students. How do I move these student discussions into the “introduction” discussion where they belong? It’s very confusing to have all of them hanging out over in the general discussion tab. I am an affiliate admin in case it matters.


Hope for a quick and easy solution. Thanks!
