Auto enrolment

Enrolment ::: enrol_auto
Maintained by Eugene Venter, Catalyst IT
This plugin allows for an enrolment into a course to occur automatically when a user views a course or course activity/resource. The plugin can also be configured to enrol a user upon login.
Latest release:
1072 sites
92 fans
Current versions available: 8
* NOTE: Development on this plugin has stalled - we suggest people investigate the use of the alternative plugin: enrol_autoenrol: instead.

Ever wanted to simplify the enrolment process for some of your courses by just auto enrolling users, based on actions they take within the system? This plugin helps you out with this, as you're able to configure which user actions should trigger a course enrolment for a user smile

Auto enrolment can be configured for the following scenarios:

  • Auto enrolment upon course view
  • Auto enrolment on login (new in 2.8)
  • Auto enrolment upon activity/activities view

The plugin also allows you to configure a welcome message to be sent to the user upon enrolment.

    I would also like to see this work for 3.6. It doesn't seem to be working now. Please update this.

    Hi Eric,

    Could you log the issue, with some more details of what is not working here:

    We've used the plugin to enroll users into a course when they log in to the site. However if we disable the enrollment method in the course by clicking the "eye" button, users are still enrolled.

    Should users be enrolled if the enrollment method is disabled?

    This is a great plugin that solves some important user experiences issues for me. One question I have:

    I notice that Students and Authenticated User roles are properly enrolled based on how this plugin is configured, but not Manager roles. Is this a permission that can be changed? Is there any documentation explaining what roles will receive enrollments so I can be aware of that when defining them?

    Hi - thank you for this great enrollment plugin. Is there any way to unenroll a student, say after 30 days (set an enrollment period)? Self-enrollment method has this option.

    Just want to confirm this works for Moodle 3.9; it's a great little plugin that has saved me an immense amount of frustration!

    ETA on 4.0?

    @Melanie- no ETA available. Pull requests welcome - there are some patches referred to in the guthub tracker though, testing and feedback on those is welcome..

    Also keep in mind Catalyst develops and maintains a large number of plugins and we don't rely on the plugins database for deploying code internally (we use git) so we don't regularly publish the latest versions of our plugins to the plugins database. The best place to find the latest versions of all our plugins will always be the git repository for those plugins.

    We are slowly rolling out a process to auto-deploy updates to the plugins database for our plugins to help organisations that rely on the plugins database but this hasn't yet been added to this plugin

    Hello, We have been using the plugin for 5 months now and everything works fine except that
    When users reach site from course link and asked to login, after login they are redirected to the course they asked for and not auto enrolled in the course that we have added auto enroll to it
    any clues how to fix that
    we want them to be redirected to the course the asked for and in the same time auto enrolled in the other course
