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.
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

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.
It's been almost 5 years since this request was first posted. Let me reiterate that, 5 years. People have built entire companies in less time. This seems a lot like there is either no desire to implement this feature, or there is an inexcusable amount of feet-dragging occurring. I cannot see any reasonably logical justification for this very basic, standard function not having been introduced years ago. The "what if someone makes changes in the discussion while others are replying" rationale is not one that is valid or viable as it has been demonstrated by numerous platforms not to have any appreciable effect on the integrity of the discussion. The absence of this feature, along with the dashboard's inability to refresh automatically, considerably reduces the usability and value of this software.
I would recommend(and prefer) that it be set to edit by owner(original poster) only.
Oh yeah, that is a given as well.
Has this ever been implemented?
At the moment, it has not. We will update you if it will be implemented. Thanks!
Has this been implemented? Or is it still in the works?
I have requested an update for this request but currently it is still submitted and awaiting for release plan.
Note - CR-208062 is the Request ID
Is there an update on this as I am interested in this feature as well. Dont understand why edit is not available but delete is out of the box.....
I have requested an update and will update this thread once I have an update.
Currently, the ETA for the release is Q2 2015.
Thank god! :)
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. :)
Thanks Vanessa :)
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!
Thanks Josh - I logged this today requesting that feature (and others)!
Hope to see this soon too, was amazed to just discover I can't edit a post in a discussion.
Thanks, Project_Manager. I've added your company to the feature request.
Was this ever implemented? I too would like the capability to edit a discussion post.
Not yet, this one is on my list as well =)
Waiting for this too !
Wouldn't mind this one also :)
Waiting for this too!
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?
No updates yet.
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..
No updates, internally this is a top request as well.
