1. From the D2L Course Home page, click on [Discussions] in the main navigation bar
2. Click on the desired topic in the “Forums & Topics List”
3. On the right, above the list of messages, click on the “View” dropdown menu.
4. Choose from options (Threaded, Unthreaded, All Posts, Unread Only, Flagged Only, or Drafts), then click on [Apply].
5. Click the “Subject,” “Authored By,” or “Date” column heading to sort
OPTIONAL:  Click the selected column heading again, to reverse the sort order from ascending to descending.
