Availability restriction ::: availability_othercompleted
Maintained by Sam Suresh
This plugin allows restricting access of activities and resources in your course based on other course completion status.
Latest release:
1318 sites
39 fans
Current versions available: 3

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.

    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.

    Good day, I was wondering whether this plugin will be available for use with Moodle 4.0, anytime soon?

    Good morning,
    I installed the plugin and I get this message:
    Notice: Trying to get property 'id' of non-object in /var/www/html/moodle/availability/condition/othercompleted/classes/condition.php on line 9
    Is this something that could compromise functionality in your opinion?

    Dear All , Any possibility to apply the same in an event of an activity completion of other course, instead of completing the entire other course?

    Is this compatible with Moodle 4.2?

    Hi @Kushan Rathnasekara, I need this function as well.

    Access to an activity in one course will be provided if an activity is completed in another course!

    @Sam Suresh, if you can do this that would be really great!

    There is an issue where, as admin role, I see "Not available unless: You have completed MY CLASS NAME", but student roles see "Not available unless: You have completed {$a}"

    If course completion is set to be when a Quiz has been PASSED, then when the user passes the quiz, it will successfully unlock the next course.
    However if the Quiz is failed, and then you manually adjust the user to passed grade (so the activity shows as complete), this plugin will not unlock the next course.
    So when the user actually passes the quiz themselves (which marks the activity as complete) then this plugin works.
    But if the teacher manually changes their grade from a fail to a pass (which also marks the activity as complete) then the plugin does not work as expected (bug).

    Ok so my above report about it not working when the quiz grade is manually changed from fail to pass, is incorrect ... it DOES work, BUT it seems to take 2 or 3 runs of the cron before it is succesfully recorded. I have my cron set to run every 5 minutes, and it takes it 10 to 15 minutes to unlock after manually adjusting the grade.

    > Open Course 2's first content and restrict access by the setting the requirement of Course 1 Completed.

    It is not clear to me how to do that. In the Restrict Access section, I only see the default choices of Date, Grade, User profile, Restriction set. The plugin (v4.0.1
    2023101400) is installed and enabled. Moodle version is 4.2.2.
