I'm trying to work out a way to edit cohorts of users' (Students') notifications without getting RSI.
The page is here:
Dashboard > Users > [firstname lastname] > Preferences > User account > Notification preferences
What I'd like to be able to do is change a list or cohort of users' notification preferences as a bulk action.
Example 1: A cohort is going mobile only, which makes email notifications redundant. In this case, how would I turn off all email notifications & switch those specific preferences to mobile &/or web.
Example 2: A cohort collectively requests that they want to receive forum & messaging notifications via web or mobile only. How would I do that?
Just for a small cohort, say 15 students, this is a lot of manually going through menus & clicking on dozens of buttons for each user. Too much of this would give me RSI (Imagine managing a site with 80,000+ users!) Also, asking students to do this for them selves would be unreliable & perhaps irritating for them.
Is there an easier way to do this or perhaps via SQL queries directly in the DB?
Thanks in advance!
