Panopto: Moderate Discussion Threads for Videos

Tags Panopto


Viewers can add comments, start discussions, and reply to each other using the Discussion tab in the Panopto video viewer. Viewers must be logged in to Panopto or Canvas using their NetID in order to use the Discussion feature. Those with Creator access to a video will be able to moderate discussions.

Toggle between All, Public, or Private Comment Threads

Select the drop-down menu that appears in the upper left corner of the Discussions tab and select which comments you'd like to view. By default, All comments will appear.

Change the Default Comment Privacy Setting

In the upper right-hand corner of the Discussion tab, select the eye icon. A menu will appear with the following options: Threads are visible to all by default, or Threads are hidden unless approved by moderator.

Threads are visible to all by default: This is the default privacy setting, which allows users to change whether their comments appear privately or publicly, as described above.

Threads are hidden unless approved by moderator: When selected, all comments submitted must be reviewed by the Creator(s) of the video or an Admin before they are added to the Discussion tab. Any public comments made previously will remain public, unless the moderator manually changes them, as described above.
