Availability feature in forums
 
Does anyone know if one can get the Availability function in a forum, eg. as in Assignments? At present there only seems to be Restrict access available in forums. This means that once the forum has closed students can no longer access it to read posts, responses again, etc. This seems a bit counterproductive to learning. So availability function would be good, as then it can be closed at a set date, so students can no longer post to the forum, but can still check previous posts if they need/want to. Any suggestions would be great! Thanks, Debbie Grace

Hello there. Look at #11 in Forum FAQ - how can close/archive a forum?

That's a good work around for something that should be a checkbox option, I think.
