      Description

      As pointed out in the comments of the Epic, the course overview block does not take into account timed forum posts and students are notified of posts that they are currently unable to see.

      Steps to replicate

      • Navigate to Site administration -> Plugins -> Activity modules -> Forum
      • Enable "Timed posts"
      1. As a teacher, create a post with a start date of one day in the future
      2. Log in as a student enrolled in the course
      3. The course overview block (on users Dashboard) will notify the student of the currently hidden post
