In the Moodle 3.1 grading/annotation screen, there's a 'Notify students' tick box at the bottom of the screen, next to the 'Save changes' button.
As far as I can tell this only does something when an assignment is in the 'Released' marking workflow state, in all other states the tick box does nothing.
Am I correct in thinking this?
It's causing confusion amongst our staff who are ticking it and expecting something to happen. To me, it would make more sense for the option to become available dynamically, when appropriate, instead of being there all time time
