Hi,

I am trying to disable the 'latest pages' block off the dashboard as students are complaining that others  can see what they are doing. Is it possible to do that? I know that individuals can hide it by editing their dashboard but I'd like to take this feature off completely.

Thanks,
Anna Holloway

Hello Anna,

thank you for your question. I don't think that disabling that feature will solve the root of the issue that seems to be underlying. From Mahara 1.4 on, all pages that are shared with a user can also be seen under Groups -> Shared Pages.

If your students are concerned that others see what they are doing then they should not share their pages with other people but keep them private until they are ready to share them.

You only see pages from other users in this block if that user decided actively to share that page with others. If he shared it with you only, then no other students should see that page listed in that block. If that is the case, it would need to be investigated because that can be a bug.

Cheers

Kristina
