## Activities: Facetoface

mod_facetoface
Maintained by Catalyst IT, Dan Marsden
Face-to-face activities are used to keep track of in-person (e.g. classroom) trainings which require advance booking. Each activity is offered in one or more identical sessions. These sessions can be given over multiple days. Reminder messages are sent to users and their managers a few days before the session is scheduled to start. Confirmation messages are sent when users sign-up for a session or cancel. This module may be of interest to administrators looking for a way to provide event management support for blended learning environments.

The spanish-for-Mexico translation of the face to face plugin is now 100% complete.

Love this tool! The only thing we have come across is if we change a date to an existing session, the participants don't get an update iCal attachment sent to them. Any thoughts?

I have a question: A student told me that when she adds the calendar reminder (Outlook .ics file) to her calendar, it's set to "Private" and she cannot change it. Any ideas? Suggestions? I really want this to work out, but if they cannot change the privacy settings, I think a lot of people are going to be unhappy.

Hi, facetoface is very good but will there be a version for Moodle 2.5 and/or 2.6 ? Thnaks

Any chance of this working in 2.5?
• Tue, Dec 17, 2013, 2:39 AM
I think I have it working in 2.5. So far the only issue I've found is an error when adding people to a session.

Had to change lines 3230 - 3231 from
$DB->delete_records('event', array('name' =>$shortname, 'userid' => $userid, 'instance' =>$session->facetoface, 'eventtype' => 'facetofacesession'));

to
$select = "name = '{$shortname}'
AND userid = {$userid} AND instance = {$session->facetoface}
AND eventtype = 'facetofacesession'";

$DB->delete_records_select('event',$select);

Hi Dave,

Thanks for reporting that. I've had a quick test with the module in 2.6 and it seems to work okay as well but will possibly suffer from the same issue. I'll try and fix this as soon as possible.

Apologies for the delay so far though, Christmas and New Year rush and all I'll try and provide some updates soon though. If any more issues are found please feel free to report issues on the tracker for this. I'm going to try and go through some of the open ones there in the new year.

Thanks,
Stacey

Thanks Stacey! Glad I could help. If I find anything else I put it in the tracker and post a link for people to find it. Enjoy the Holidays!

Is there a release date for a version of face to face for Moodle 2.5 and/or 2.6?
• Thu, Jan 23, 2014, 3:17 AM
Installed on my Moodle2.6, but when a student tried to sign-up, it says no 'You are currently not assigned to a manager in the system.' Tried to create a manager role, but still can't sign-up.

I have the same question as Paul: is a version planned for 2.6? I have just read about the Face-face plugin here: http://www.lambdasolutions.net/blog/2014/01/moodle-face-face-plugin/ I'd like to see if it could be used as a room booking system.

I know with 2.3 and 2.5 the showing sessions on the front page didn't work and required extra code in render php in core (?) to get it to display. Has this been resolved in 2.6?
• Sun, Jun 1, 2014, 6:24 PM
amazing tool , i'm wondering if there is a new release that compatible to 2.7?
• Mon, Jun 9, 2014, 8:34 PM
