I am looking to create some edits to Moodle home page to make things easier for employees (utilizing Moodle to host training for a corporation).
A plugin that finds all courses marked as required, checks to see if the current user has completed said course, and if not display it on the home page.
I have gone through a tutorial on creating blocks, which was successful but it is my understanding that blocks are limited to the side panels on Moodle? I tried googling to find out how to add a customized features into the homepage's main section, however the documentation found here: https://docs.moodle.org/37/en/Front_page_settings makes it seem like only the options built into Moodle are allowed?
Can you create a custom solution and make it available on the Front page combination dropdown? and if it is not possible, would it be recommended to create an Activity Module plugin even though this particular plugin is not going to be utilized in courses?
