How to delete old forum discussions?
 
I'm doing maintenance on my Moodle site over the summer. I've deleted all of my user accounts (I set them up for each semester). Moodle deleted all of their assignment submissions (uploads), but not the responses in the forums. I'd like to reuse the forums that have been set up, so I don't want to delete them. How can I get rid of the students' forum responses?

Hi,

You could backup your course without user data and then restore it. Alternatively you could use the course reset function. Please see the documentation Course backup and Reset course for more details.

Thank you! I never saw that option before (reset). That will save me a lot of time going forward.
