Administrators should be able to enable/disable features/plugins easily to simplify their Moodle sites.
In order to achieve that, there are a few things that can be done:
- Switch easily between different Moodle configurations (without changing settings manually, one at a time).
- Reword some features, to make it easier for users to find/use them.
- Make "Enable xxxx" features more consistent: add them into the "Advanced features" page and then only display the Site administration menus when there are enabled.
EDIT 21 Sep 2021
For new sites we should consider defaulting to the 'simplified' Moodle configuration. We will need some sort of notification for admins (could even be a simple msg) to let them know this and that they can 'unlock' the full feature set (with link to setting).
