How do I mark discussion replies as read or unread in Discussion Redesign as a student?

By default, as you read new Discussion posts, Canvas will mark them as read as you scroll down the page. However, you can manually mark each posts back to a read or unread state.

You can tell Canvas not to automatically mark all your posts as read in your Discussion settings.

Note: Once a post's state is manually changed, the post will not change states (become read or unread) until you manually change it again.
