Canvas - Not Recording Discussion Posts as Submitted


  • I responded to classmates' posts but my modules do not reflect that I have completed the assignment with the green checkmark and my instructor cannot see the posts.

For the issue to be resolved, the instructor needs to ensure that all students are added to a group within the Group Set selected when creating the Group Discussion.

Students experiencing this issue can either ask their instructors to contact to get help with the issue, or can contact with the name of the Canvas course and the instructor's name.

Student Work-around

Copy the discussion post text into a Word document for future reference and take screen captures of the post(s) in Canvas and email to the instructor.
