  • 1. Is your email inbox littered with Moodle notifications?
  • 2. Get rid of them! If this is the case, you can create ‘rules’ to automatically send these messages to a folder without you having to read them. This is good if you receive a lot of notifications, maybe you have been ‘attached’ to many Moodle pages. When you need to access the notifications, just click on the folder that you have created. Lisa Perry 2
  • 3. Creating ‘Rules’ With assignment notifications this is very easy. Most of these have very similar wording, for example: ‘Fred Bloggs has updated their submission for assignment…………… blah, blah’ You can make a ‘rule’ for the words that always appear in each notification, i.e. ‘has updated their submission for ‘ Lisa Perry 3
  • 4. 1 Click on the Folder tab. 2 Select New Folder. 2 3 In the dialogue box, give your new folder a name, for example: ‘Assignment Notifications’. Then click OK. Lisa Perry 4
  • 5. 4 Next, you need to ‘right click’ on an email of the type you want to get rid of. 5 Click on Rules and then click on Create Rule. Lisa Perry 5
  • 6. Select the option 6 ‘subject contains’. Next, paste or type in the 7 text that is common to all the notifications you want to put away in a folder. Lisa Perry 6
  • 7. 8 9 Click ok Lisa Perry 7
  • 8. 10 Select the folder you created earlier (step 3). Click OK. Lisa Perry 8
  • 9. You will receive this ‘success’ message. 11 Check the ‘Run this rule now on messages already in the current folder’. 12 Click OK Lisa Perry 9
  • 10. That’s it! Lisa Perry 10
  • 11. Now you should no longer have a cluttered inbox. The assignment notifications will go directly into the folder you created. For forum notifications from Moodle, you need to find something common to all, or most of the messages. Maybe the first few letters of the course code would be a good ‘rule’ to use. Lisa Perry 11
