Improved Discussion Searchability

The activity type "discussion" is fairly useful. We use it in class but also for help courses to assist other teachers, for instance in the use of itslearning itself. However, since you have to create threads in order to have a discussion I would like to see:

  1. A search function that searches all threads and the contributions made under each thread for a given keyword.

  2. A possibility to show not only 100 threads per page but all threads under this discussion activity. This way you could at least use the browser search function to search ALL thread names without having to do that on every single thread pool page. This is a fallback option in case suggestion 1 cannot be implemented but, really, both would be useful.

    Hi. Thanks for the idea. We will share it with the relevant teams. We will keep the suggestion on the ideas portal to see if it gets more ‘up votes’. This helps us understand which ideas are most popular. Thanks, the itslearning Product Team.
