From the documentation (https://docs.moodle.org/39/en/Working_with_files#Editing_or_updating_uploaded_files), if an alias is created, then when the original file is updated, it will change in all instances of the alias.
I am not finding this to be the case. I have done as follows:
Created a course named Resources > added File 1
Created a Course X > added File 2 which is an alias of File 1
In Resources course, updated the original file by overwriting with new version with the exact same name. When prompted to override or rename I chose to override. On checking, File 1 shows new version.
In Course X > checked File 2 but no change. Its still showing original/old File 1.
Am I doing something wrong?
Using Moodle 3.9. Tried with both Word and PDF docs. I also tried with the source as a my 'Private files' but same happened.
