Moodle 3.2: Forum Subscription Settings

Students and instructors who are subscribed to forums have some control over how they will receive email notifications from the forum (e.g., once email a day summarizing all forum posts, or one email for each time someone posts to a forum). The settings for email notifications can be changed at any time during the semester.
