I am noticing that the Group Messaging setting (enabled at the group level in the course) is NOT coming over in the Backup and Restore process. I am seeing this behavior on a 3.6 and 3.7 site. With this being a course/group type of setting and not a user setting it would be a great improvement to have this come over with a backup and restore process that includes groups and groupings.
To recreate issue:
- create group in a course and enable group messaging
- backup and restore the course with Groups and Groupings
- check the restored course group where group messaging was enabled and it will show as disabled
- The expectation would be that the group messaging setting would stay enabled with a backup and restore process
