Manage Discussion Forum Emails

Manage Discussion Forum Emails


Are you or your students getting tons and
tons of emails from your discussion forums? In this video, we’ll see how to manage those. A quick method is to open one of those emails,
and click Change your forum digest preferences. And click Unsubscribe from all forums. Another method is to go to the dropdown menu
beside your profile picture, choose Preferences, and Forum Preferences. And then change forum auto subscribe to “No.” Save changes. And either of these should work to eliminate
the unwanted emails. I do want to show you one thing to keep in
mind when you’re setting up forums, that may ameliorate this a little bit. When you set up a forum, if you look in the
settings, you’ll see subscription. the default setting is Optional Subscription. That allows you and your students to unsubscribe
as we just demonstrated. It’s best to leave it at optional. Don’t change it to forced subscription unless
you feel that it is crucial that your students get email updates. Forced subscription prevents anyone from unsubscribing,
including your supervisor, who has access to your course in Moodle. So when in doubt, leave it at optional subscription. If you try these methods and continue to get
unwanted emails from discussion forums, contact me and I will be happy to help you.
