Edit comments

It would be really helpful to be able to edit comments once posted. Sometimes, you think of a better way to express what you have just written and it would be more efficient to just edit the comment already posted, rather than reply to your own comment to add the new/adjusted info.

  • Yes! this would be a very helpful feature.


    I understand we don't want students to be able to edit their comments, but it would be great if admins could edit their own comments, and the comments of students

  • Here's a use case scenario:

    It would be great to allow users to edit their comments. It’s VERY VERY easy to post a typo or to write a sentence that isn’t quite grammatically correct. Students are often told that they are judged (and assessed) by their communication skills, including grammar and spelling. So it would be fair to students to allow them to fix these errors as this could have a serious consequence to a tutor’s assessments of their communication skills.

    • AWC Team Hi AWC Team, thank you for your suggestion. Our Product team will take it into consideration. In the meantime, perhaps you could try this workaround: copy the comment you'd like to "edit", paste it into a new comment box, fix the errors, post the comment and finally, delete the first one.

      Hope this helps!

    • Alenka Prezelj I would really like users (not just admins) to be able to edit their own comments too, please!

    • Student Carroll Thanks for letting us know. If you haven't yet, please vote for the suggestion above.
