Is there any way to quickly switch off and on all notification emails that Gibbon sends to Parents and Students?
It would be convenient to avoid emailing our users while we test out changes or need to avoid overloading our users with notifications for a short period of time.
You can use SQL direct on your database to do this. The following should do what you want, as long as you are using the standard, built in roles of Student and Parent:
UPDATE gibbonPerson SET receiveNotificationEmails=‘N’ WHERE gibbonRoleIDPrimary=(SELECT gibbonRoleID FROM gibbonRole WHERE name=‘Parent’) OR gibbonRoleIDPrimary=(SELECT gibbonRoleID FROM gibbonRole WHERE name=‘Student’);
Thanks. We’ll make good use of this to prevent noise while we move on to the next stages of rolling out.
