Moodle 3: Activities & Resources: Forum Subscriptions and Tracking Settings

This article has not been updated recently and may contain dated material.

For instructions on creating a forum, see Add a Forum.

Forum subscription settings cannot be updated after the forum has been created; they are permanent. 

NOTE: Changes to the subscription settings will not effect current users. 

Forum Subscriptions and Tracking Settings:

Use the dropdown menus to customize the Subscription and tracking options. There are 4 subscription modes:

  • Optional subscription - Participants can choose whether to be subscribed
  • Forced subscription - Everyone is subscribed and cannot unsubscribe
  • Auto subscription - Everyone is subscribed initially but can choose to unsubscribe at any time
  • Subscription disabled - Subscriptions are not allowed.

Read tracking, if enabled, will highlight new posts.
