    I've added this Block to 2 different Moodles (both running 3.4 latest version) and on one it runs fine, on the other the visual bar grid that displays the assignments is greyed out. The cursor turns into the do not enter sign (round circle with red line through the middle) when I move it over the bar.

    Any ideas to rectify this?

    Hi, Jensy.

    As I mentioned in my last message, I've had to remove the messaging and notes functions from the latest version. Sorry if you were relying on that.

    Hi, Bobby.

    If an activity is visible, but inaccessible, then this should appear as you have described.

    Hi Michael - any plans to add messaging back? It was a key feature!

    Firstly - can I say what an excellent plugin this is, and well done to all who have contributed to it.

    Can I suggest a potential improvement (not sure if it is possible to code or not)?

    If a student submits an assignment, the block turns yellow. This is then graded by the teacher, who gives it a refer grade and the block turns red. The student then resubmits their work - but the block remains red. Would it be possible to introduce another colour (possibly orange) to change the block to to indicate that it has been resubmitted. I have tutors working on courses, who are using this plugin exclusively to manage their marking - e.g. they have got used to anything turning yellow requires their attention - but some are missing the resubmissions that remain red.

    thanks in advance.

    Hi, Jensy.

    I would like to continue to have the messaging functionality, but it would require a bit of re-write to the Overview page. If someone with time is willing to work ahead on that, I'd be happy to work with them.

    Hi, Dave.

    I don't think there should be any additional colours. I would personally prefer one less. Keep in mind that this plugin was not designed for teachers, but primarily for students, to assist in managing their time.

    When you are in the overview of students page the mouse over does not work. This makes it difficult. This screen was useful as if there were lots of red squares for a task I could mouse over and see what the task was. Now I have to actually click on the task and open it to see what it was.

    Hi, Rob.

    I think that should be resolved in the latest version from a few days ago. Let me know if that doesn't work for you.

    Hi Michael,
    I have just responded to this discussion,, been there a little while without reply, and wondered if perhaps this is possible?

    Hi, Colin.

    I think linking the Completion Progress block to activities results would lead to a result similar to what we had in the old Progress Bar block, with the block peering into the tables of other activities and requiring a huge amount of maintenance. If Gradebook was used universally by activities, that would be a possibility, but to my knowledge, that isn't the case.

    Hello ,
    Thank you for sharing with us this awesome plugin ,
    My question : is it possible to use this plugin to control the progress of the student in a video-course (a course that contains videos) ?
    for example a course which includes 1 video of 10 minutes if the student watched 5 minutes, the progress bar shows me : Progress: 50%
    thanks in advance.

    Hi, Asma.

    No, this block displays progress over a series of activities in a course.

    Hello ,
    Thank you Michael, a course can be a series of videos for example ,( topic 1 contains video 1 , topic 2 contains video 2 ... ) , so how can we control the progress of this course ?

    Hi, Asma.

    The progress is controlled by the student as they complete the activity, which could be as simple as viewing something. I suggest you look into Activity Completion.

    hello, when we add a page, for example to course course and select the first choice (Do not indicate activity completion) on Activity completion, this activity doesn't appear in
    COMPLETION PROGRESS Block and if the course contains only this activity, the block shows: "There are no activities or resources with activity completion set or no activities or resources have been selected. Set activity completion of activities and resources, then configure this block.".
    so please, how can I indicate to Moodle to consider this resource (page, file...) like an activity without allowing learners to mark themselves as complete ?
    In the block settigns we have "activities included " will it help me ?? and how can i select activities to include ?? thank you very much !

    Hi, Asma.

    I think you answered your own question, but I can clarify. The block relies on completion settings. If you don't have any activists with completion, it won't show anything to a student and gives a teacher that warning. You can exclude activities through the block's configuration, but they still need to have completion turned on.
