    Thanks Mark for sharing the plugin with the community. I left some suggestions for further development in your tracker. For now, this is good to be approved. You are cleared to land, welcome to the Plugins directory.

    Hi Mark,

    Great additions, sounds promising. Can you post some screenshots and some more information? For example, can you use wildcards to assign group members (for example everyone with a department starting with 'sales')

    Can you make one group based on several profile fields? (or-statement, like last name is 'smith' or 'jones' goes to group A)

    Hope to hear more on this!

    This is almost exactly what we need! But I need to group into cohorts based on a custom profile field. I see that this is an issue on your tracker already, do you have any plans to enable this soon?

    Hello Mark, is this plugin bug-free? Also, will it run on Moodle 2.9? Thanks.

    Hi Mark, this is a very nice plugin.

    I am running it on a 3.1 test site and it seems to work as expected for new courses. Is there a way tot activate the plugin for existing courses? I have also updated the plugin to work with a different profile field (added MSN to the array in both settings.php and profilefield.php).

    I can't seem to find a specific node in the menu to manage the activation per course. Any hints?

    It is important for every moodle site administrator to know: Is the development of your plugins (Auto Group, AutoEnroll) still alive? How can we make donations to support further development?
