Re: Forum notification improvements
 

Hi Andrew,

I agree with and can totally identify with this issue - so think it's a great idea! my only concern would be that with all this flexibility users may get confused as to what forums or threads they are subscribed to. So be missing out on posts that they feel they should be getting and vice versa.

So perhaps along with the capability we would need to design an easy to use centralised interface for each user that displayed their forums (or groups of forums) along with their subscription settings and then ideally allow them to manage them from there.

Regards

Mark

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the feedback.

At present, I don't believe that there is a centralised list of all forums across all courses that you're enrolled in and have available to you, but we do have one on a per-course basis. I'd love to make a holistic view of that course page, and we'll have to look into this in terms of performance to see whether it is feasible or whether there is a better solution that we haven't considered.

Although I've not included it on the screenshot in the subscription proposal (http://docs.moodle.org/dev/mod_forum-subscriptions), I was hoping to include the options there too so you can see both your subscription status, and your digest status. Where applicable (e.g. you have the appropriate capabilities), you'd be able to control these settings too.

Do you feel that these address your concerns?

Thanks,

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

I'm really sorry I missed your reply! I think I posted in July and then floated away- I guess this is a use case where something like what you have proposed would be useful!

Not sure if i'm too late to give feedback now but.....yep I think that you have proposed would go some way to settling my concerns.

However I do think a site level view of this looking across my subscriptions across all my courses would be really useful.

Regards

Mark
