      Description

      We've had a request from one of our users to display the name of the submitting user when approving new glossary entries.

      In my opinion it makes sense to make this an option as an alternative displayformat for the approvals page.

      Replication Instructions

      • create a new glossary;
      • set the display format to a format which doesn't display the name of the submitting user (e.g. "Simple, dictionary style");
      • as another user create a new glossary entry;
      • as an editing teacher view the approvals page.

      Before applying this patch, it is not possible to determine which user has submitted a glossary entry
      After applying this patch, an option is available to allow users to select which displayformat is selected
