2. Moderation

The “Moderation” menu allows you to adjust various settings. You can set a notice to be displayed on the homepage, change the user notices for each rubric, and edit the standard email texts that are sent out from the room (for example, when a new member has been approved).

 

Notice on homepage / notice board

You can choose a material entry, a task, a date, or an announcement to be displayed as a prominent banner on the homepage. Simply enter the content ID of the entry in the corresponding field. To view the content ID of an entry, click the arrow symbol (labeled “more ...”) on the top of the entry to the right of the title. The content ID will be displayed on the left side.

 

User notice

You can add user notices to each rubric of your room. They will be displayed in the column on the right side of the screen. Select a rubric and enter your text. You can use this function to tell your room members about the purpose of each rubric, for instance. Once you save your settings (bottom of the page), your individual notice text will be displayed in the column on the right side of the rubric.

Email configuration

This setting allows you to customize the texts of emails that are sent out via the room (for example, when a new member has been approved). You can use the dropdown menu to change individual parts of the standard texts, such as the greeting or form of address. The % signs and numbers in these texts are placeholders for usernames and other variables. Do not remove them.
