Moodle Tip: How to Change Your Email Notification Settings


One of the most frequent questions I get is how to turn off (or on) the notification emails Moodle sends whenever someone messages you in Moodle, or posts in a forum you're in. It's a useful a tool, and can help keep you informed what's going on in your online courses, but those emails can easily get overwhelming.

Fortunately, you can customize how you receive those notifications -- or even if you receive them at all. Here's how.

1. After you've logged in, click on My profile settings on the left.

2. Click on Messaging.

Now, by checking or unchecking the boxes on this page, you can customize what kinds of emails you'd like to receive. If you don't want to receive any emails from Moodle, simply check the box at the bottom that reads "Temporarily disable notifications."

3. Click Update and you're done.
