Your feedback is very important to us. We are trying a new approach in delivering work behind a Feature Preview flag while we're in active development so we can get your feedback sooner. This means features will continue to improve and possibly get completely reworked.

As Erin mentioned, we are real humans behind these posts who only want to create the most optimal Canvas experience for you all. Our entire team is focused on doing the right thing for our customers. Constructive dialog is welcome and encouraged but please, please lead with kindness. Imagine how you would want students to provide feedback on your course, or teachers to provide feedback on institutional programs.

Here is a link to our Community Guidelines as a reminder.

Best, Katrina

Hi everyone, when we started our discovery for updating Discussions these reply navigation issues and feature requests quickly surfaced:

  1. Modern digital conversation tools follow a vertical format vs. horizontal
  2. Discussions with many replies sometimes took too long to load or timed out
  3. You cannot tag another person with an @mention
  4. You cannot quote the person you are replying to
  5. There were too many clicks to see and respond to unread replies from the Discussion index page

Hi everyone, we are so excited to start collecting your feedback for Anonymity + Moderation features in Discussions. We have a couple of surveys lined up to get your feedback and share upcoming designs. 

Up first is “Creating a New Discussion Survey” to ensure we have simplified how you create Discussion topics. Next week, we will update this post and activate the link for "Anonymity, Moderation, Reporting Survey".
