We want to have some super-users within each department. Those with power to create courses, assign teachers, and go into courses that aren't specifically 'owned' by the course creator. To do this, we followed the procedure below.
- Create a new role in Moodle
- Assign it the same permissions as Course Creator and Teacher
- Remove forum:initialsubscriptions permission (Not set), to prevent the user from being inundated with emails
- Assign the user to this role, for a given category
Removing forum:initialsubscriptions permission would mean that the super-user did not end up subscribed to new forums. However, if a Teacher creates a "Force Everyone to be Subscribed" forum, the super-user gets all posts/replies, despite having forum:initialsubscriptions disabled.
I guess a way of having a "never be subscribed" permission for users. Or clarifying the behaviour of forum:initialsubscriptions
