      Description

      In M19 there is a capability called mod/forum:initialsubscriptions. A neat thing about this capability is that you can use it to opt out certain roles from receiving emails the news forum that forces everyone to be subscribed (MDL-11738).

      As we are migrating to M2, we want to recreate this role for our supervising instructors (instructors who are official listed as the instructor by our Registrar, but the TAs are the actually people teaching the course).

      For this role we want them to be an "editing teacher", but just not spammed with posts in the "News" forum.

      We were able to set that up in M19, but since the capability is gone now in M2 we can no longer have that same functionality.
