sending username and password to email
 

Dear Moodlers,

I would like to thanks, all of you for helping me all the time. I would like to ask you how to send a student username and password to the email while bulk enrolling the student. I want to send the username and password in their email while enrolling them in different courses.

Last time I checked, Moodle doesn't let you send out bulk password emails when uploading via CSV!

An option you could do is that once they are all added, send a bulk message via Site administration --> Users --> Accounts --> Bulk user actions (presuming they all have email addresses). You'd have to set everyone to the same password so that it'll be in the email (and ensure force password reset is enabled!) but it is a workaround.

Though the better option would be to send this yourself via a mail merge and individual passwords.

You may consider the Moodle Welcome plugin.

Try it on a Test box / test installation first.

Hi Abu,

I guess that there is already an option in moodle to send email to users with welcome message and password during csv upload.

These are the required user identification fields:

username,firstname,lastname,email

Passwords

The "password" field is optional if the 'New user password' setting on the upload screen is set to "Create password if needed and send via email" but is required if the setting to "Field required in file".

Please try and hope this will work for you. You may check this link also - https://docs.moodle.org/34/en/Upload_users

Thanks!

Suraj Kumar
