    Hi Georg,

    that is possible. It is just not tested nor have I looked into the changed Moodle APIs relevant for this plugin.

    Kind regards,
    DAvid

    Where can I support $ the module ? It's a really great one BTW; for in-person trainings with post-training online follow-up.

    Thank you for all the hard work that goes in to this plug-in. It's saved us so much time!
    I'd like to be able to upload all my bookings via CSV, but I'm struggling. I get a "wrong file type" when I try to upload it. I have it saved as a CSV.
    Is there a template anyone has?
    Also, what would the value in the CSV be for having a TRUE tickbox value (for Date and Time of booking is known)?
    Thanks

    Hi David, I played around with the latest release and came across an issue with the layout of the signin-sheet. In the downloaded PDF-file the participants names are cut-off. Neither did I change the default settings nor did I add an extra column.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Hey guys, I've changed my default view from "showactive" to "myinstitution" in view.php but is there any way to set a default sort for the courses?

    Hi,
    I'm using version 2017030600. On the "Book other users" page, is there a way that we can search users by username instead of just Name and Surname, or email only? this will make the search much easier because username is likely to be the most unique more than name and surname.
    Thank you

    Hello David,
    I'm trying to translate your plugin into Hungarian, but there are question marks instead of some charachters (for example "á" or "é" don't appear). How can I solve this problem? Thank you.

    Hi Marcell,

    that's great news. I recommend to use http://lang.moodle.org/ (AMOS) for translating. That would ship the booking translation directly with the Hungarian language pack of Moodle.

    Kind regards,
    David

    Hi David,
    I have noticed people with the permissions to "Book other users" can still make bookings in this option even when the availability date of the booking option has past. Is there a way we can fix this problem?
    Thank you

    Hi, Lebato. I think this was done on purpose. Usually when you can book other users you are a kind of admin or manager who needs to be able to make changes without these limitations. Example: Student falls ill first day of course, then the student will be unsubscribed and another student can still join. So I am not aware of your usecase, so that might need some clarification and an additional feature. Kind regards, David
