SLK 1.8 - Option to automatically check email learners box when creating new assignments

In SLK when creating an assignment there is an option to send emails to users about assignments. The option is a check box on the assignment properties page labelled “Email learners on creation or when changed”.

Following on from my last change about turning off emails to instructors on submitting, I’ve now added an option to automatically check the box for new assignments.

To turn on the setting, you need to add DefaultEmailingOn="true" to the Email setting in SlkSettings.xml as in:

SlkSettingsEmailOn

By default this is set to false, so the current behaviour will continue, i.e. the checkbox will not be selected.

This is now available in the latest release of SLK 1.8 – which is considered to be Beta currently.
