Template:Moodle 1.9In Moodle 1.9 onwards, groups may be organised into groupings. Activities and resources may then be assigned to particular groupings. The result of this is that only users assigned to the groups within the grouping will see the activity or resource, it will be hidden to others.


Enabling the use of groupings

To use groupings, the feature must be enabled by checking the enablegroupings box in Administration > Miscellaneous > Experimental. This will result in a groupings tab appearing on the Groups page.

Organising groupings

Groupings

To organise groups into a grouping:

  1. Click the groupings tab on the groups page.
  2. Create a grouping using the "Create grouping" button on the groupings page.
  3. Click the "Show groups in grouping" people icon in the edit column of the table on the groupings page.
  4. On the add/remove groups page, select the group(s) you want to add to the grouping from the "Potential members" list.
  5. Click the arrow button that points towards the "Existing members" list.
  6. Click the "Back to groupings" button. The group(s) you added to the grouping will now be listed in the table on the groupings page.

Existing groupings can be edited and/or deleted using the appropriate icons in the edit column of the table on the groupings page.

Assigning an activity to a grouping

The activities column in the table on the groupings page shows the number of activities assigned to each grouping.

Assigning an activity to a particular grouping

To assign an activity (or resource) to a particular grouping:

  1. On the edit activity page, click the "Show advanced" button in the common module settings section.
  2. Click the "Available for group members only" checkbox.
  3. Select the particular grouping from the grouping dropdown menu.
  4. Click the "Save changes" button at the bottom of the page.

The name of the grouping will then appear in brackets after the activity name on the course page.

A count of activities assigned to each grouping is kept on the groupings page.
