    Hi Nicolas
    Do you know if your plugin works with Moodle 3.1, do you plan to submit a compatible version ?
    Cheers, Emilie

    Hi Lina,

    Thanks, I'll see if I have any time to implement this. For now, it looks like I won't have much time to implement this. However, if anyone feels like coding this part, I'd be glad to integrate it.

    Hi Emilie,

    The current version works perfectly on Moodle 3.1. An upcoming version will be released in a couple weeks, officially supporting Moodle 3.1.

    Hi Adam,

    Indeed that would be nice – I'll have to check if I can include this in my schedule though.

    Hi Nicolas,
    Thanks for your reply. We are really looking forward to this but I appreciate that you are busy with other priorities.
    Since the global search is one of the most attractive new features of Moodle 3.1, more and more popular plugins become searchable. Teachers and students will find it easier to search the group choice's title or description.
    Best wishes,

    Hi. This plugin is so helpful, thank you.

    Since upgrading to v1.9, there are a couple of admin changes and I can't work out how to manually reorder the group choices - is it now only possible to sort alphabetically or by date? We use this plugin a lot to sort by training date and aren't always able to add those dates in order of occurrence, but would like to display them chronologically. Or sometimes we ask people to sort by role and would like to have the most frequent choices at the top and other' as the final option.

    Any tips much appreciated, thank you.

    Very useful plugin - would it all be possible to include settings to allow the group description to be shown by default? Many thanks, Martin

    Hi Nicolas,
    Really good plugin. I am wondering if there is any way to restrict the number of groups a user can enrol onto. For example from a list of 10 groups, could we lock access to all remaining groups once a user has enrolled onto 5 groups?
    Thanks, Sam.

    Hi Nicolas,
    Here is a feature request...
    As regards number limitation it is applied to all groups and then you can change this limit on a per group basis through the list of groups select box. When you have a large number of groups (>100 for instance) and you want half of them to be, say, limited to 2 and the other half limited to 3, it's quite time consuming. Would it be possible to allow multiselect and change limit, and also to apply a limit to groups in a grouping?
    Anyway, your plugin is great and, IMHO, should be integrated into core modules wink

    Regards, Jean-Roch

    Any upgrade to version 3.4?

    Hello !

    Great Plug-in !
    It seams to be working on 3.4 version... but, is it possible to confirm it "officially" ?
    My administrator is reluctant to install it on our new moodle instance.
    Thanks !

    I've just released a new version (no feature change) officially supporting Moodle 3.4.

    Thanks to everyone offering thoughts about improvements and new features. These would easier to review if posted directly to GitHub – see "Source control URL" link above. This would get these a better chance to be reviewed.
