Name filters stay with user between modules

    Details

    • Affected Branches:
      MOODLE_22_STABLE

      Description

      When a user applies a filter to a list of users on a page, that preference applies to other lists belonging to other modules around the site during their session.

      Replication steps:

      1. Go to any report, say assign activity>reports
      2. Now select a name filter from the Navbar
      3. Now go to a different course and select a assign activity of this new course and view the reports.

      Expected: Ideally the cached preferences should be deleted if we are visiting a different activity all together.
      Actual: The name filters selected in step #2 is already selected in this activity.

            Hi Dan,

            This sounds like a general activity report problem it was just seen when looking at an assignment activity report.

            Yes, I don't think this is a problem with a specific module, but with the paging preference that is carried around with the user on the site (in their session?).

            I don't think this is really a bug, but there could be an improvement to make such paging preferences specific to a module, or perhaps to a specific page. That way, if a person returns to a page on the site, the preference will persist, but it will not apply to other pages/modules.

            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.
