    @Isuru Madushanka Weerarathna
    It happened with version 3.5.2+ and with 3.6.4+.

    I'm using 3.6.2. After installation, I was working the website's footer, and that was when the issue started. Not sure if the two are causal, though. But uninstalling the plugin solved the problem. I'm using the latest version of Essential theme.

    @Justin Case it seems that *some* users reported this issue regarding redirecting to the login page after a recent Moodle version upgrade.
    Could you please remove 'require_login()' function in coursesettings.php file in the local reminder dir and let me know whether the issue fixed or not.

    Removed the require_login function from cron lib file and released a new version 1.6.1.

    Thanks everyone who reported this.

    There are some problems with "Custom notification period". There is no notification 1 hour before event. Moodle version 3.7.1. Anyone else has this problem?

    @Isuru Just wanted to check that as you have mentioned in the older thread that you will be considering the possibility implementing a feature where it will not send the reminders if the activity is completed/passed, So are you able to achieve this in any recent versions?

    Firstly thanks for creating this really useful plugin, I have only recently discovered it and already love it. I notice that the emails from 'Course' events include the description, whereas emails from 'Group' events don't include the description - is there a reason for this? Would it be possible for the group reminders to also include the description (or give us the option of including it if we want it)? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Isuru,
    firstly: thank you so much for this plugin, I was searching for something like this for ages.
    Secondly, I wanted to ask whether the plugin actually works on Moodle 3.7. I was trying to set it up, and in logs I even see that the cron task was started and found one event with deadline that should me sent as reminder, but no e-mail was ever sent. Is this just me, or do you know what might be causing this?

    Thank you, Robert

    Hello, thanks for the plugin. I just have a questio. I have 5 different user roles, on the course page are 5 assignments - the assignment should only be completed by users of a certain role. How do I set it so that only the relevant role receives the reminder email and not everyone enrolled in the course? At the moment, everyone in the course is getting an email to say the assignment is due, even if they do not have the permission to submit? Thanks, Kathryn

    Kathryn - within the site admin settings for the event reminders, you can specify which roles recieves the reminders - e.g. set these so they only go out to students. This would effect all reminders across the site (e.g.whatever you set applies to all courses). Or you would have to create groups withint the course, and set the assignments to be for specific groups to resrict the reminders that way, but I expect that would end up creating more problems than it solves.

    Thanks for your development! Can I use it for 3.8 without problems? Any experience?

    I have just noticed that if a learner is suspended from a course, they still get emails reminding them of events even though they are suspended. Can this be changed to only send emails to active users on the course, rather than all users. Thanks in advance.

    @Ben
    It should work in 3.8 as I know there are no breaking changes in the existing API.

    @Dave
    I should be able to filter out suspended users from sending an email. However I thought the moodle common library method filtered out all inactive and suspended users, but it seems not.
    I would be grateful if you can raise a ticket with reproducible steps in here (https://github.com/isuru89/moodle-reminders-for-calendar-events) so that I will be able to include in the next release.
