Can a sub-option to be notified of Group Discussion Posts be added to user notification settings, please? Image below to illustrate.
Clint, please add your support to the idea that is currently open for voting, Allow teachers to subscribe to a group discussion . You might also be interested in adding a vote to Notifications by group
We've archived this idea to remove the duplication.
Thanks, Stefanie... but the request is really stemming from students asking to be notified of group discussions separate from the larger, course level discussions. Differentiated notifications between the two is the desire.
In that case, Clint, would you edit the idea so that it reflects and conveys the student perspective?
Why? They are user notifications not student or teacher notifications. We would like users to be able to, say, turn off notifications of the larger, class discussions when they need to focus on group discussions, vice versa, and so on. Specifying that students are making the request is precise and accurate right now, at the moment of making the request, but an emphasis on students making the request seems to distort the larger picture. The precision of student granularity may not be accurate in the future, so adding a "Group Discussion Post" sub-notification option and leaving as course role type agnostic seems appropriate.
Clint , we see that you feel strongly about this! We'll open this for voting as a request for a new notification preference and trust that the links we've provided to the related ideas serve to bring attention to all of the ideas without diluting support for any one of them.
