      Description

      When using the forums in group mode new posts currently have to be started individually for each group in order to maintain group participation rather than the whole-class involvement. The option for new discussion threads to be started that will automatically post that new discussion for each group would decrease some confusion. (The post/discussion would multiply itself so it is created for each group)
