Maintained by Sam Suresh
This plugin allows restricting access of activities and resources in your course based on other course completion status.
Latest release:
977 sites
30 fans
Current versions available: 2

Now you can restrict your course activities and resources by the completion status of other courses. 

For example:

You have 2 courses

  • Course 1
  • Course 2

You want your students to complete Course 1 before accessing Course 2's first content.
Open Course 2's first content and restrict access by the setting the requirement of Course 1 Completed. Of course, you need to set Course Completion for Course 1 in the first place. 

How to use?

1. Install the plugins from Moodle

2. Open any activity or resource that you want to restrict. Click add restriction and choose Other course completion.

3. Choose which course you want the user to complete before being able to open this content.

    Nice plugin. Slight issue for those of us with +1000 courses. Could the list be ordered alphabetically or we could type in the shortname, fullname, or ID of the course and it will autofill?

    Hi @Jeff White
    Please create issue here:

    Hi Sam Suresh, thank you for the work you have put into this plugin.

    One item I have noted (testing on Moodle 3.5) is the plugin does not have a "must not have completed" functionality, even when setting the overall restriction condition to "must not". Is this a limitation you are experiencing?

    Hi Sam. This is a very useful plugin and thank you for this. Are you going to create a new version to support moodle 3.8? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Sam, very nice plug in. Any chance to have it compatible to Moodle 3.9? Thanks in advance for your reply.

    I already set the restriction rules but it seems doesn't work. With this plugins even the student already completed the required course he/she still can't access to the course that I want

    This is exactly what I needed, and it works perfectly.
    It would be great if additional restrictions can be nested under this restriction, like duration since the other course was completed.

    Thanks for making this plugin! Is the latest Moodle (3.11) supported? If not, do you a plant to support it? Thanks!

    Hi, I'd really like to start using this plugin - will you be updating to the latest Moodle version?

    Nice plugin, Works very well
    No role can see the activity in "Complete report" when this restriction is on.
    Is there any way to fix this?

    When installing this plugin, what I have achieved is to lose the completion report of the courses. Don't use it! I have lost my job because of this plugin.
