      Description

      Hello,
      I was just looking for a way to disable the ability of users to enable/disable their email address in their profiles and came upon this thread (http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=131099) . It appears it's not currently possible as the only options are to:

      -prevent them from enabling/disabling *other users'* email addresses (Enable/disable email address moodle/course:useremail))
      -prevent them from editing their own profile entirely. (moodle/user:editownprofile)

      It would be great to bring a new "Profiles" section into the Roles and Capabilities for each user definition, and then break it out to the various items within the profile: picture, email enable/disable, password, interests field, etc... so that it would be possible to allow or disallow each item separately.

          We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.
