Hi there - I’m after a bit of advice about the best way to set up an automated step.
We are using a discourse platform as an LMS. Our first cohort will close next week, and I would like to automate this as I won’t be at work.
I would essentially like to hide the categories from participants, without losing topics or comments within - OR - automatically remove all participants from the platform.
We would like to be able to refer back to these categories as a team, so I want to ensure all comments and topics stay available to us.
Is the auto-close feature the best way to go about this? Is there a more sophisticated approach?
When a topic is closed, what will my participants see?
Thanks for any advice. I’m just a school teacher and am learning a lot about everything!
Your welcome. If it is to hide for full mods and Admins. Only other idea would be to allow Mods to create categories in settings.
With that any one with full mod or admin level can change Category Permissions.
Delete everyone and change it to Staff.
Alternatively this could also possibly be done with a PM that has Staff or a Group ie Teachers Group and A students Group added to a PM. And when topic is closed a Teacher or Mod maybe a TL4 user can remove Students group from PM
Your very welcome. There is the #marketplace where someone may help by making a plugin that would be able to accomplish your preference however if budget is tight. Might not be ideal. However doesn’t hurt to inquire what it might cost and if it could be worked into the budget.
Plugins need an Admin with root server acs to install via commandline.
