Hi,

Is it possible to assign different moderators to different forum categories?

This would be a stellar feature. Would limit certain moderators to only receive moderation emails from assigned categories.

Hi Juan,

You can set Accesses to Usergroups for each Forum. Just edit the forum and manage Usergroup - Access settings.

Hi,

Thanks!

I see what you are aiming at and I can create a  permission group for every individual forum category and assign specific moderators to each group.

But email notifications will be the problem. As I gather from your settings page all notifications go to all moderators or selected email addresses. Is there a way to separate it (as schema below) that moderators only get email notifications for their assigned categories?

Category A - Moderator 1

Category B - Moderator 2

Category C - Moderator 3

Just tested it and if a reply is posted in Category A all the moderators get the email instead of just the moderator assigned to the Category.

This would be a great addition to the plugin to have separate admin emails per forum for only the selected moderators.

The correct way is not using the notification email option for moderators. it's only correct for admin. Moderators should click on Forum Subscription links and subscribe to all topics. This is a better way.
