Comments in discussion forum being deleted.

Jump to solution

My student said his comments to postings in the discussion forums were deleted by somebody else. Is it possible?

Hello  @liyiyan  Welcome to the Canvas Community.  Thank you for posting your question.  This doesn't sound like normal behavior.  The only thing I can think of would be if an instructor had deleted a student's discussion reply (maybe because of questionable content, vulgar language, etc.).  Instructors also have the option, per course, to turn on/off a setting that allows users to edit/delete their own postings.  But, I've not heard of students being able to delete the postings of other students.  I would recommend that the student reach out to the folks at the Canvas Help Desk.  They may be able to investigate further what might be going on.  How do I get help with Canvas as a student?

I hope this will be of help, Stella.

Tlhanks. I have reached out the help from the e-learning team of our school. They reply the same way. They are now investigating the issues.
