I am running discourse for a relatively large course (200 students, 10-strong course team) and use it to publish all course announcements among other things. I am searching for best practices in preparing these announcements.
We usually make a draft announcement as a topic in a category private to the course team, then review it and schedule publishing. However, because publishing a topic also publishes all the response posts, we are forced to separate the review of an announcement from the announcement itself.
I would like to plan better now and I’m wondering if it is possible to only publish or copy the head topic and not all the replies? Or is there another workflow that would be convenient for my use case?
