Have struggled a lot to find the possibilities to send notifications to students, teachers aso.
Moodle 2.4+ running on hosted Windows 2012 server.
All students have configured the profiles with checkmarks in “Send mail” on the configuration-page.
I’m trying or have solved to get the following notifications to work :
1) Forum topics
2) Manual messaging Students and Teachers
3) Self- and manual enrolmet to Courses
4) Quiz due notifications
5) Other possibilities
Ad 1) Forum Topics
Notifications on new Forum Topics seems to work. Users get mails, and the cron-job seems to send out the mails. So the email-functions seems to work.
Ad 2) Manual messaging Students and Teachers
Sending out messages via the Students view in Courses also seems to work fine, when cron-job is running.
Ad 3) Self- and manual enrolmet to Courses
This doesn’t seem to work at all. Nothing seems to happen in the cron-job. Hope someone can advice me how to test further
Ad 4) Quiz due notifications
The cronjob says that notifications will be send next day at 6AM. Cron-jobs after this schedule says tha due-notifications are already sent. No one are receiving mails concerning due-notifications. Hope someone can advice me how to test further.
Ad 5) Other possibilities
There are a lot of possibilities on the users profile-page to get notifications, but how are these notification possibilities enabled in Moodle ? Hope someone can give me a hint to a Guide or something else. At the moment I havn’t been able to find it in the Doc.
