    Dear David

    This plugin is great and we use it a lot.
    Recently a student highlighted that the booking confirmation email attaches a ics file however the location field is empty. We could not find any settings or figure out how to rectify this issue.
    Please can you help?
    Kind regards

    Hi Youssef, thank you for your comment. I would be happy to fix this, but this plugin needs funding. So I would also be happy to be contracted for the work on the plugin.

    I am on Moodle 3.5 and have installed the plugin, but the booking options are blank. Am I missing something?

    @Jesse C:you have to create the options yourself and add booking options with your booking option data.

    Hi David,

    Apologies for being a Newbie at this. Guidance is much appreciated. Please see more details below.

    I can see the booking Booking Block (I believe this is the right term), and I have created a booking option. I can "edit this booking option" as well. I have filled most of the fields, but when I go back to the course, the booking options there are all blank with no buttons or any information.

    You can see for yourself here if you like:

    Update:
    I was able to get it to display in Moodle 3.4 with the latest version of the booking Module.
    The latest version of 3.5 did not work with this Module for me (hosted locally or on a server).
    I am building from scratch so will use 3.4.

    Hello! The plugin is very nice! Congrats!
    Although, I think I've found a bug... Could you help me how to fix it?

    My moodle is v3.3. and the plugin version is v3.1.
    If I'm enrolled into a course "Course A" and I create a event not associated to a course, the Moodle calendar, shows the event without any problem.
    But, If I create a event inside Course A, that is associated to Course B, the event doesnt appear on Moodle Calendar. If a user book himself into the event, the plugin enrol him inside a group of Course B normally. The only bug is on Calendar.
    Thanks!

    Hi,
    thank you for the bug report. I will investigate this and I think in one of the next versions, a fix will be available. I can not say anything about time frame, because the development of the plugin depends largely on institutions who finance new features or need support.
    Kind regards

    Good afternoon,

    First of all, thank you for this plugin. We LOVE it at our college. We use it to manage staff development training sessions.

    I wondered if there's a way to order the bookings so they're in date order for users? Normally we create the bookings in date order so that's how they appear, however I've added a new booking, and it's been created at the bottom of the list. Is there any way of moving this new booking to the top of the list?
    Kind regards
    Emma

    Hi,

    you can sort the bookings by clicking on the title of the date column in the bookings overview. However a possibility to configure the default order is not yet implemented. You can always create a feature request on the github issues section of this module.

    Kind regards,
    David

    Hi David,
    My site is using version 2019052800 of the Booking module. Our mobile app users report they are still being prompted to open Bookings in a browser. Booking is not disabled in the site's mobile settings. Is there something more I need to do to get it working in the mobile app?
