Create a Conversation Archive
Service notice: All Catalyst Web Tools–except WebQ Survey and GradeBook–will be retired. View timeline and details.
Archiving old conversations in a discussion board can help to keep information relevant in active discussion areas. To archive conversations in a separate area, your GoPost board must be set up with multiple discussion areas. To create the archive, you will first create a new discussion area to hold the archived conversations and then move old conversations into the archive discussion area.
Follow these instructions below to create a conversation archive:
- Create a discussion area to hold old conversations, perhaps called “Archive.” Learn more about creating a discussion area. You can also lock this discussion area, if you want participants to read but not post to the archived conversations.
Tip: If you want, you can hide the archive discussion area so that participants do not see it. Learn how to hide a discussion area.
- Move old conversations from an active discussion area into the archive discussion area. Learn more about moving a conversation.
