    I have a problem, when the plugin is enabled, there are sending emails more than once. The students received a lot emails of the same activity. What i missed?

    @Peter and @Ricardo I am currently working on it. It seems some api's have been changed in v3.5, so I need to work on those.

    I don't get why this isn't a core feature in Moodle. It's so basic (ie. essential) to any website... :/

    Hi, mi using Moodle 3.0.10 (Build: 20170508) and local reminder 1.5.1 (2018111700).

    Im have multiple event calendars on course, users, group and course but no mails are send, the recipient dont receive any mail, although the local_reminders option is activated for all allowed Roles.

    May be a problem from the server? I tried to install many versions… but it doesnt work.

    Thank a lot!

    Do not want to bug the developer more than necessary but I wonder if a new version supporting 3.5/3.6 will be available soon?

    Hello, I add my vote to the question : will the version 3.6 be supported by the plugin in a near future ?

    I am currently testing the plugin for v3.5/v3.6, but I am facing an issue of like this. And need help from someone to resolve this. A PR would be appreciated.
    My code is here:

    Coding problem: $PAGE->context was not set. You may have forgotten to call require_login() or $PAGE->set_context(). The page may not display correctly as a result
    line 493 of /lib/pagelib.php: call to debugging()
    line 820 of /lib/pagelib.php: call to moodle_page->magic_get_context()
    line 1432 of /lib/weblib.php: call to moodle_page->__get()
    line 93 of /local/reminders/contents/course_reminder.class.php: call to format_string()

    Happy to let all of you know that I have released the plugin for Moodle v3.5 and above, just a moment ago.

    Can we add multiple events against one date?

    @Maria Lena
    As long as you can add multiple events for a single date in calendar, the plugin will do its work.
