To allow learners to make informed decisions about which discussion posts to expand and read, discussions now offer a post listing view and a post details view. In the post listing view, learners see a list that includes the title and approximately one line of each post.
When a learner selects a post, the post, comments, and responses open in the post details view. Learners can return to the post listing view by selecting the All Posts link in the post details view.
Both views are available in inline discussions, on the Teams page, and on the Discussions page, creating a consistent discussion experience in all three locations.
