New Forum features included in Stream upgrade

November 11, 2019

Some great new features will be available within Forums to help organise discussions and improve productivity.

Staff and students can now prioritise discussions using a “star” feature. In addition, staff can pin discussions to the top for all students as well as lock discussions to block further posts. All of these options are available right on the main forum page.

In addition, replying to posts opens inline of the message in a simplified display (the full set of features are available as an advanced option).

Staff can also reply to a student’s post, privately. Only the student and staff with a teacher role can see the reply.
