Is there any way for users to view old messages (ones that have already popped up)? All I can find is the "search" function -- but that only works if you know what to search for.
I've just discovered this myself. It seems an odd design.
An easy 'message history' area would be great, with perhaps an Administrator defined limit of how many messages can be kept by users (to reduce server load)?
The question aroudn this for us, is us as admins can see student/faculty replies by clicking message history if we know the student, but when the faculty is logged in they can only see their messages sent to students and not the replies, is this a security thing or what????
Where is this dialog message found.
Hi ... I am still waiting, if anyone got the solution of this problem. I saw that reply with database access with phpmyadmin console but that is not what we are looking for. I think we should make one routine which can be usefull for everybody.
I ran into this problem here in 2012 as it seems there is still no clear way to view old messages. However, it is possible. Just not obivous.
To view message history:
1) Click on a participants name.
2) Click the 'Send Message' button underneath the participant's information.
3) Click 'Message History' link. A new window should pop-up with the message history. So also be sure your pop-up blocker for Moodle is deavtivated.
It seems strange to have to begin sending a message to view message history..but, hey. It works.
