Ability to edit discussion posts

With the use of MoM and such editing posts would be an ideal feature.  Typos and such happen, having to recreate is time consuming and also changes the intended post ordering

We will submit a request for you on this. the concern is allowing people to change a discussion where people have already started replying to or collaborating on.  I think if we make it so that you can only edit if there are no replies (or can edit up to 15min after post) this will be a reasonable compromise.

I would recommend(and prefer) that it be set to edit by owner(original poster) only.

 

Thanks

Tim

In the meantime till this feature is available, which I'm sure you've already figured out, but just in case!...Instead of having to retype everything after deleting a post, copy/paste onto a clipboard, edit the post, then re-post!

This may not work well in terms of 'sequence' if you're deleting a post in the middle of thread...but hopefully this is a rare situation. :)

Completely unrelated, but I have to promote this since it was not widely advertised... you can now paste images directly into social posts. I use this half a dozen times a day!

Hope to see this soon too, was amazed to just discover I can't edit a post in a discussion.

Was this ever implemented? I too would like the capability to edit a discussion post.

I've just been asked by a user for exactly this feature, do we have any update on when/if this is going to be implanted?

When is this going to be implemented or is this shelved permanently?

I have a business critical requirement for editing discussion posts so need to know if this is ever likely to be implemented please.

It is still a priority request, but there is no ETA on this request. It is unlikely to be shelved permanently, but there are still several items on the product roadmap that are more critical..

Any update on this ? It is business critical to have an option to edit discussion post. It is taking lot of time in deleting and putting new discussion post.

3 and a half years without a discussion edit button? Come on now.

Obviously still an important and unresolved issue.  Facebook has shown how to do this, you can edit a post or reply but there is an audit trail and people can view on demand what was previously written.  This addresses concerns about permanently changing something, but makes it easy to correct obvious errors.
