I am new to using Moodle, with a couple of questions around Databases. I have not managed to find an appropriate response in the forum discussions (I might not be looking for the correct terms)
My aim is to set up a database for students to submit specific academic requests to academic management - such as extensions on submission deadlines, or access to a supplementary exam if the student failed the first one. (The purpose is to have all these requests collated in one place).
Privacy of the requests was a concern - but if I understand correctly, I am able to set "require approval for new records" (and then just never approve them) - and this will allow entries to remain private, and for me to comment on the entry, for the student to see my comments and respond (and still only see their requests), whilst I can still see all requests?
Firstly, is there a maximum number of records that can be added to the database - and then once that limit is reached, the database becomes visible to all students?
And secondly, do I receive notifications when students submit new entries and do the students receive a notification when their entry is commented on?
Thank you for any guidance to set me in the right direction!
