Version for Moodle 3.8 is not yet funded. If you use this plugin consider a maintenance/support contract in order to have a working module for your next Moodle upgrade! Contact info (at) for further information.

    Gehe ich auf "X Antworten verwalten", so zeigt er mir nicht den Kurznamen des ausgewählten Kurses an, verlinkt ist aber richtig, denn wähle ich den Kurznamen aus, so bin ich beim ausgewählten und nicht beim angezeigten Kurs.

    Hi David,
    The booking module looks very promising.
    The following two english strings seem a bit strange to me, but I am not a native english speaker:

    booking:choose "Boook" might perhaps be "Book"

    subscribeuser "Do you really want to enrol the users in the following course" might perhaps be "Do you really want to enrol the users in the following course ?"

    Thaks again for another nice module.

    The xls Export doesn't seem to work in the new version.

    @Julia K: The xls export should now work in moodle 2.4 too.

    Hi David. I realized there are currently two versions of mod_booking published at the moment. Both labelled as 2.3.1 (2013031100) and released on 11 March 2013. I found it a bit confusing. You may wish to look at it.

    Hi André,

    thank you for that. I think there is a problem with the language file and some new customization strings added in recent versions. I will have a look at it.
