      Hide

      For this test you'll need two users.

      As your primary user in your messaging settings make sure you are configured to receive popups for personal messages and that "Beep when popup notification is displayed" is ticked.

      As your second user send your primary user a personal message.

      Check that the primary user's popup is accompanied by a notification sound. You can go and play the sound in message/bell.wav to see what it sounds like.

      Untick "Beep when popup notification is displayed".

      Send another message to your primary user.

      Wait at least 2 minutes (at least 2 minutes is required between popups to avoid annoing people). Check that the primary user gets their popup without a notification sound.

      Ideally try this is in recent versions of IE, Firefox and Chrome. Note that this will probably not work on a computer without Quicktime installed if you are using Safari.

      Description

      In Moodle 1.9 there was an option for users to get the messaging system to beep when new messages arrived. When the messaging system was replaced in Moodle 2, no such option was included.

      The previous feature is documented at...
