      Description

      In numerous previous Moodle versions, prior to 3.8, Moodle Q and A forums using groups had a visible (and very handy) checkbox to allow the teacher to "Post a copy to all groups" - this checkbox is now hidden, and becomes visible only after clicking the "Advanced" button and waiting for the whole page to reload. Our faculty already miss this checkbox and then find out their students cannot reply to their question, despite their having posted the question to "All participants" because the question does not belong to any group. This does not make any sense to faculty, or to us who support them. Please return the "Post a copy to all groups" checkbox to the first page that loads and do not require faculty to click Advanced.
      Or, make the location/visibility of this setting controllable by Moodle Admins. Please. Thank you!

      Just made a video showing the issue in 3.9 (which is worse than it is already in 3.8): https://www.loom.com/share/bd5d6ed6e7c8470e9c2081a25e3447fe
