Setting release conditions for a discussion forum or topic

Home » Discussions » Discussion forum and topic restrictions Setting release conditions for a discussion forum or topic

Release conditions enable you to specify requirements that users must satisfy before they can access a discussion forum or topic.

For example, you can require that users view a content topic or submit an assignment to a dropbox folder before accessing a discussion topic. Or, you might create an extra-help discussion topic for users who fail a particular quiz.

Add release conditions to a forum or topic

  1. On the Discussions List page, click Edit from the context menu of the forum or topic you want to create release conditions for. You can also set release conditions when creating a new forum or topic.
