Managing filters at site level

A site administrator can enable filters for the site in Settings > Site administration > Plugins > Filters > Manage filters.

  • Select 'On' (always available for all courses), 'Off but available' (teachers can choose whether to enable the filter for the course or activity) or 'Disabled' (always off for all courses) as required for each filter

  • Use the up/down arrow icons to arrange the filters in the order in which they should be applied

Certain filters have additional settings, which can be accessed via the links in the settings column.

Filters capabilities

There is just one filters capability, Manage local filter settings, which is allowed for the default roles of manager and teacher.
