    Hi there, Just installed this an doesn't seem to be working. I've entered the moderator's email address and that all seems to be working. Can I have it send the information to more than one moderator?

    Hi @pierre, no account creation will not be affected by this plugin.

    Hi @Dav, no only one moderator is supported.

    Cheers,
    Bas

    I am on 3.7 and this doesn't appear to work - no notification message was sent when I created a new account.

    Hi Bas,
    Since there is no other plugin which can provide custom profile fields to the welcom message, i've tried this plugin with 3.9. Does it have to be updated to get it to work in the latest Moodle versions?

    Hello, is it possible to configure the message in multiple languages, so the new user will receive a message on the language that he/she used when created a new account?

    Hello. Thank you for your plugin. It seems that it is very usefull. But after installing in moodle 10.4 it is not working. I guess I tested also in 3.9 and it is not working again.
    If it is possible, please update it to latest version.
    Many many thanks

    Hi, great plugin! Works ok on 3.11. Is there any way to send a welcome message on course enrolment for existing Moodle users? Most of ours already have accounts but enrol on new courses each year and we want to use it to send them details of new course. Thanks.

    Hi, first, thank you for that plugin wink

    I have the follwoing use case: I would like to contain in the mail to all organizer the information WHO has added the user and to WHICH COURSE the user in enrolled and in which GROUP within this course. Is there a possibility to implement this use case with the plugin? If not, is there a possibility to extend the plugin to suppurt this use case?
