Custom mailing activity

This activity allows custom mailing creation with following parameters :

Send an email to each user enrolled in the course :
  • at course enrol
  • x days(s) after first access of the course
  • x days(s) after last access of the course
  • x days(s) after first launch of a scorm (optional scorm completion status)
  • x days(s) after last launch of a scorm (optional scorm completion status)

* Retroactive mode available for each mailing

This plugin can also generate and send a PDF certificate linked to the mailing when conditions are met.
This feature requires Mod customcert plugin

You can create more than one mailing by activity but each user can only receive one email per mailing.


There are two installation methods available.

Follow one of these, then log into your Moodle site as an administrator and visit the notifications page to complete the install.


This requires Git being installed. If you do not have Git installed, please visit the [Git website]( "Git website").

Once you have Git installed, simply visit your Moodle mod directory and clone the repository using the following command.

git clone custommailing

Or add it with submodule command if you use submodules.

git submodule add mod/custommailing
Download the zip

Visit the [Moodle plugins website]( "Moodle plugins website") and download the zip corresponding to the version of Moodle you are using. Extract the zip and place the 'custommailing' folder in the mod folder in your Moodle directory.

    We want to use the plugin in conjunction with the mod customcert plugin, however we can't get it to send a message with your plugin. We are using Moodle 3.11.

    We create a default for the certificate (customcert settings: if user answered 80% correctly, the certificate is issued and a message is sent to user). The mail is configured to use a message when the conditions for the certificate are met. There are no entries in the "Log". Debug mode is enabled.

    Can you help me further?
