How do I delay posting a Discussion topic until a specified date in my course?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
You can delay posting a Discussion topic until a specific date by changing a setting in your Discussion.
Click the Add Discussion button.
Create your discussion by using the following options:
- Enter your topic title in the topic title field.
- Use the Rich Content Editor to format your content.
- Enter dates in the Available From and Until fields. You are not required to enter dates in both of these fields, so if you want to delay your posting but do want your post to appear indefinitely, you can leave the Until field blank.
Save and Publish
If you are ready to publish your discussion, click the Save & Publish button . If you want to create a draft of your discussion and publish it later, click the Save button .
