Unread forum posts on dashboard
Particularly helpful Moodlers

On the previous (Moodle 2.9) course overview block on the dashboard, one could see the unread forum posts.

On the new (Moodle 3.3) course overview block on the dashboard, students van no longer see the unread forum posts. Is this correct or am I missing something?

Moodle 2.9:



Notice the 'There are new forum posts' notification...

In the new Course overview block, the 'unread forum posts' are neither on the timeline nor on the courses tab...

There's already a Tracker about this issue, missed that...

Please vote if you also want to see the unread forum posts back on the dashboard...

Moodle 3.3

My school is really looking for something like this. It's a real problem not to have it enabled.

I've read in https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-58913#

that you could achieve a workaround by enabling "Activity completion" in the Forum/post you're using and then it will be shown up in the Dashboard. But where exactly, in the "Course Overview" block?

This solution is not working for me now.

Any hints?


Thank you very much.
