    Hello !

    I installed the plugin and it is very usefull for me !

    I have some questions :
    - On the website, I found : "Is 1.9.x version of this module stable? Not really."
    Why ?

    Do you think you can add these features :
    - allow to choose to enrol in one OR many groups ?
    - allow to display or not the member list before enroling ?
    - allow or not the student to unenrol
    - allow to use the enrolment key as enrol password ?
    - add a filter when displaying the group list ?

    Thanks for your answer !
  • what the hell you looking at ? haha

    Great plugin,
    Can we have the groups showing in a drop down menu instead of the way it is now...i mean we have over 30 groups and the way it looks now is awful.

    Thanks for this very handy plugin?
    Just got a question about how the password works. I create a group with it's own password. (In the select module I've left the password field blank). Then when the user selects they can join without the group password I've set. Can I use the select mod with individual group passwords? Maybe I have to tweak the capabilities in the roles?

    Ideally I would like to try and use the select module so users enter group passwords for their own groups to gain access. So I'm posting find out if this possible?

    It is possible to use the module together with « Group Choice » to get some extra options for students.

    There is no Download for Moodle 2.2 or 2.3. Are there some problems with these new versions?
    What is the difference to "Group Choice" ( Wouldn´t it be good to combine these to plugins?
    Thanks for your answers!

    Is this plugin still being maintained? There have been no updates since Oct. 2011. We currently use this plugin in our 2.1.4 system, but are upgrading to 2.4.4 before the end of the summer and wondering if there are plans to update the plugin for use with 2.4.
    Thank you! Ryan

    in the old version (1.9), students could take down the group without problems. But in version 2.0 ( can not find the way for a student to take down the group.

    Could you help me with this problem?

    Thanks for everything.


    PD: moodle 2.5
