Does anyone else need more data from the discussion board reports?

At present the data sets you can pull are:

Discussion Posts
Discussion Posts Read Status
Discussion Topic User Scores
Discussion Forums
Discussion Topics

This provide a top level overview they don't actually include what the discussion is about ie it just gives the title not the thread content. Are we the only ones who would find this data useful when reviewing content of a course?

I have been told that someone else raised a PIE Include Discussion Thread and Reply Content in Discussions Data Sets (D9329) but it currently only has 6 votes so just wondering if more people are looking for this kind of data?

    As the future of the Discussion tool evolves, the importance of data is a key-component that the team is building on. Your very thoughtful insight has also been passed along to these D2L teams. We greatly appreciate your feedback in this!
