How do I print discussion topic threads and replies in D2L?

with No Comments

First, you’ll need to change your view settings in the Discussions area. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Go to the Discussions area in your course site.
  2. Click the Settings link on the top-right side of the page. There’s a little gear icon next to it. This will open your settings options for the Discussion area.
  3. Change your view setting in the Default View section from Reading View to Grid View.
  4. Click the Save button at the bottom of the page.

Now when you click on a discussion topic, all of the posts and replies within it will be displayed in a way that is similar to how emails are organized in your inbox. Here’s how you print them:

  1. Select the boxes next to the discussion posts you want to print. If you select the top-most box, it will select all of the boxes on the list.
  2. Click the Print link above the list. There’s a small printer icon beside it.

Please note that there’s also a Mark All Read link at the top of the list with a crossed-out glasses icon next to it. If you’re reading all of the discussion’s posts and replies as a print document, you’ll want to click this link so that they’re marked as read in the system.
