 This refers to Moodle 2.7 from July 2015 onward


In your profile there is a setting to get Moodle to mark new forum posts for you:

  • Go to My home
  • Find the ADMINISTRATION block and click on My profile settings > Edit profile
    Set the Forum tracking drop-down menu to 'Yes: highlight new posts for me'.   (Alternatively, you can automatically subscribe to any forum that you post in: see below.)

You will then see new posts highlighted in a number of ways, for example:


To receive an email every time someone posts

This means that you wll receive an email (either every time someone posts or once a day, depending on your profile settings)

  • Forum auto-subscribe should be set to 'Yes: when I post, subscribe me to that forum'

When you have completed changes to your Profile click on the Update profile button.


IMPORTANT: If you are subscribed, you will receive an email every time someone posts BUT you will no longer see the new posts highlighted in Moodle - the two settings are mutually exclusive.
