Locking comments on posts
Sometimes the creator of a post wants to lock the comments so no-one can add any more. That is now possible on Classlist.
Use the 3 dots menu to the right of your post or announcement to lock comments.
Locking comments can be reversed using the same menu.
Locking comments on announcements
For announcements, you can lock them on the parent side post, as above. However, there is also the option to lock comments from the admin side Announcement page. This can be used by the Admin that created the announcement.
Locking comments can be reversed using the same button.
Unfollowing a post that I don't want to receive any more notifications for
If you create or comment on something, then you will automatically 'follow' that post or announcement, (even if you have opted in your settings not to receive comments on all other posts). 'Following a post' means you will be notified if others comment after you, because you may want to comment again.
If you don't wish to be notified of subsequent comments on any particular post or announcement you can 'unfollow' that post by clicking on the bell icon underneath the individual post. That will change the bell from blue (you were following the post) to white (you are not following the post). You won't receive any more notifications of comments on that post. This does not change your overall notification settings.
