Moodle makes it easy to keep track of your course’s online discussions by using email notifications. However, improper settings can result in too many emails. This handout will show you how to control these notifications, and keep your inbox uncluttered.
There are two places where you need to keep track of your settings: your personal profile settings that control settings for all of your classes and individual forums you want to follow.
Every Moodle user has the ability to control how they receive email notifications from Moodle. To customize these settings:
Note: By choosing Complete or Subjects you will receive one email per day with notifications from Moodle. If you choose No Digest, you will receive an email every time a classmate or instructor posts to discussions you are following.
When you are posting or replying to a topic in a forum, find the Subscription setting below the text box to select whether you will receive email notifications for that particular discussion. This setting can be found just above the Post to forum button.
Tip: If you find yourself receiving email you don't want, follow the link at the bottom of any email to unsubscibe from that forum (if optional).
