Once time limited reached enrolments are grabbed by an newly associated Enrolments grabbed instance. * Enrollees are then transfered from cohort time limited enrolment instance to Enrolments grabbed instance. * Enrolments are then no more synchronized along cohort changes * Teacher is free to enrol/unenrol users manually even if his course has a manual enrol instance.

    Thanks Céline for sharing the plugin with the community. I found the idea interesting and I can imagine scenarios where something like this is extremely useful. Well done on that. While testing the plugin functionality and reviewing the code, I spotted some bits that should be fixed and improved in a future update. None of them look like a real blocker to me though. With the hope the reported issues will be fixed soon, I am going to approve the plugin now. You are cleared to land, welcome to the Plugins directory.
