The new Course Overview block not very suitable for course providers that do not use deadlines or start and end dates.The block is not targeted in cases when students can enrol in a course at any time and take lessons/activities at their own rate. In that case there will always be 'No upcoming activities due', so that tab is irrelevant. It would be great if a setting could remove it.
Yes, I agree, and that is what I have done. But still the old block was contrary to the new one perfectly suitable. All this new 'candy' is completely irrelevant.
Then you could reinstate the old course overview block if it's more suitable to your needs?
I am afraid that that will be a bit too nerdy (can you say so in English) for me, and besides it will complicate updates. And will it continue to work? Thanks for your suggestion, but I do not think it is advisable for me to deal with.
Well if you are able to install plugins the old one is here https://moodle.org/plugins/block_course_overview
It will work until Moodle 3.7 apparently. Perhaps by then the changes in the new course overview block will make it usable for your situation?
Thanks Mary, that does not sound that bad, I will discuss it with my site owner. Will it be installed as the Course Overview block and be overwritten when I update with git, or is it possible to have the two plugins installed side by side?
It is two separate plugins - so no problem!
