A board administrator could restrict student behavior inside a board by enabling a view-only mode. This function is designed for instructors who want to join student discussion from this year to last year within the same class. It can also be used in case a professor wants to temporarily prevent students from posting anything but still have the Pins and Comments be viewable. For example, it could be used to "pause" the board during a break so that students cannot post and earn points during the break.
To make a board view-only, follow the steps below:
1. Log into the board.
2. Click on the “Settings” tab.
3. Click on the “Basics” icon.
4. Locate the “Board Status” sector.
5. Choose “view-only” option and Click on save settings.
