    Hi Nicolas, is this plugin compatible with the mobile app?

    Thanks for that great plugin.
    We are planiing to migrate to Moodle 3.6 version . Is the plugin (3.5) able to support safely that migration ? Thanks.

    Thanks Daniel for your feedback. Our initial testing indicates that this plugin works as expected on Moodle 3.6.

    Please do report back either to confirm success or to indicate issues.

    We just have migrated to Moodle 3.6 and so far everything is going well with Group choice.
    Thanks again.

    Hello Nicolas, you bring a positive contribution to the Moodle community with different plugins, so my question may repeat for a couple of plugins, including this one !

    Can you tell us if the plugin will support version 3.6 of Moodle in a near future ?

    Hello Eric,
    Thanks for your feedback. We haven't had time to officially label the latest version as Moodle 3.6 ready, but our initial testing shows that it should work fine. An updated version for Moodle 3.7 will be released this summer.

    Hi, just one question: is it possible to send an email to students who chose a group as a reminder of their choice?
    Thank you.

    Hi Filippo,
    No, it's not possible to do this automatically. This could be relatively easily implemented, contributions are always welcome !

    Hello. Very nice and easy to use activity, but could you include more presettings options?
    Especially the "anonymity-" and "show results"-option.
    As an admin i would very much like to define anonymity as the standard usage of this activity.
    That would make compliance with GDPR much easier for our users.

    Thank you in adavance.

    Hi Axel,

    Thanks for your feedback. That is something that I'd like to see indeed. Although we are committed to keep supporting this plugin for supported and upcoming Moodle versions, we have at the moment no plans to further add features to this plugin.

    However, this would be relatively easy to implement. If you have anybody at your end willing to add the required code additions, I'd be happy to include it in the next release.

    Strongly an update because version 39 does not seem to work in moodle 10.
    Thank you for your investment

    I can't install it on the course page, it always shows an exclamation mark in the name field.

    Hi kazi, and hi Alex,

    I've just tested the plugin on Moodle 3.10, and initial full testing show no issues ... can you please be more specific, or open an issue on the bug tracker so that we can discuss it more extensively?
