“If we enrol someone into a Moodle course and they are suspended at system level will they become ‘un-suspended’ ?
“Does the system suspension overrides the course enrollment? Or course enrollment cancels the system suspension?”
Well the answer seems pretty easy no? Specially if you consider Moodle’s contexts, right?
Nothing beats a system setting.
But is this the true here?
Well, yes and no!
Yes, because a suspended in system user, remains suspended no matter what. Even if teacher manually enrolls him/her in a course, a suspended in system user won’t be able to access the site and consequently the course.
No, because a suspended in system user, who’ll be enrolled in a course will seem as ‘Active’ account and not as ‘Suspended’.
Weird no? And confusing…
Imagine if you were a teacher and you enrolled in your course manually someone who had been suspended by the admin. You’ll be seeing this person normally in participants list, in enrolled users list, in gradebook, in course activity reports, you could even send him/her a message through system!
Given that when an account is suspended, activity logs and everything are kept, why a system suspension doesn’t suspend user in all levels?
Do I smell a bug? What do you think?
I guess it worth make a tracker search…
