Is there a way to set notifications just to notify about a response to a post I make?

When I was using Blackboard years ago, I loved a feature that showed me when I had responses _just_ to my posts. Next to each discussion topic in BB, a little 2 or 4 or 7 would be shown so that I would know that I needed to respond to those students who had responded to me. Does Canvas have something similar so that I do not have to wade through posts to see if a student has responded to me? 

 

This feature would also be helpful for students as I see a lot of discussions become asynchronous simply because students never go back and answer a peer's post with a question in it. 

 

Seems to make more sense for specific replies to be noted somehow?
