Search Canvas Discussion Posts

I am a faculty and I use Canvas DISCUSSIONS a lot in my teaching. Often I want to look at a specific students responses to discussions that have happened through the whole semester. In other words, if over the course of a semester there were 20 different discussion threads and I want to find how one student, (let's say Kelly Nash) has responded to all the different discussions, I would like to be able to enter the student's name (say Kelly' Nash) in the search bar and get all of Kelly's responses as the output. Currently I do not think this is possible in Canvas. Am I right? Is there anyway I can do this? I must admit I do not understand the Canvas DISCUSSIONS search function at all. When I enter a keyword or a student's unique last name in the search bar I do not understand the results that show up (or the "no items") when I run  the search. Any help would be deeply appreciated.
