Provide students with automatic feedback when they ask questions that have already been asked or answered in their forum.
Step 1: Click on the "Manage Class" button:
Step 2: Click on the "Customize Q&A" tab:
Step 3: Click "Enable" next to "Duplicate Question Feedback:"
Step 4: You can use our default feedback tags (Question asked on Piazza and Question answered in course materials), or create your own in the "enter another feedback tag here" text box.
Step 5: Once Duplicate Question Feedback is enabled, you'll see a "question feedback" dropdown menu appear under new student questions. Clicking any of the tags on the dropdown will apply the selected feedback to the post.
After students receive a certain number of individual feedbacks, they'll see a prompt letting them know that they've received feedback for duplicate questions when they try to post a new question. In some cases, their ability to post may be temporarily disabled.
