Moodle Top Tip: email alerts from forums; how to stop them
Some of you might be set up in Moodle to receive an email alert when someone posts in a forum. It can be handy but it can also mean a lot of emails, especially in a unit with a lot of students enrolled.
If you want to stop receiving these emails, simply got to the ‘Administration’ tab on the left-hand side of the forum (see the picture above) and click ‘stop receiving emails from this forum’.
If you are particularly interested in a specific discussion, you can click ‘subscribe to this discussion’ in the same block when you are in that discussion. This will limit your subscription to this discussion topic rather than all posts in the Forum.
