    I like this Journal Plugin. Each student / Participant sees his own journal entry. I am on Moodle 3 and installed the latest version of your plugin. As requested by everyone it still dosen't seem to have the file picker/ attach option. Can you add this functionality ? . Is their any other plugin that can be used to create this kind of a private document within moodle ? Can we have multiple journal entries per user

    Hi Rama,

    Thanks. The filepicker for the students submission editor will be a new feature in the Moodle 3.1 version of the journal module. There is a unique journal entry for each user, you can create multiple journal activities as an alternative, although not ideal I can not think of any other alternative using mod_journal.

    Hello, just wondering when this is going to be updated for 3.1? Thanks

    Hi Graham, yes, I will in the near future, but I've just tried it and 3.0 version works in 3.1

    Hi David, thanks for the info i've just tried installing the 3.0 version but it won't let me install it as it's not showing the 'Install' button for my 3.1 site. Any way around this? Cheers,

    Hi David

    On "my" page (..../my/) there is always an indication that you have a journal/s that needs to be completed. (It doesn't matter if she is a student or a teacher, if the journal has been completed or already received feedback) Is there any roundabout? We reported it in:

    Moltes gràcies!!

    Is there any chance this soon be compatible with the Mobile Moodle app? I just checked the 3.1 version, in our 3.2 Moodle test environment, and it still shows as incompatible.

    Hi David,
    Do you have plans to upgrade for 3.2?

    Thanks, Catherine

    Hello all, I am not responsible of maintaining journal module anymore, Herman Cosmin and his team adopted the plugin, they will be upgrading it. Regards

    Hi Herman,

    The "Version" tab doesn't say support for 3.2. So is it safe to assume that the plugin will work on Moodle 3.2 without issues? are there any known issues encountered while using it in 3.2?

    Also is there an official release in the offing for 3.2 version? If yes, do we have a tentative date?

    Hi all.

    Is this plugin still supported?
    It is a really good one, which is why we are currently using it.
    As the admin of our Moodle i also have to check for potential security risks.
    Regrettably unsupported plugins fit that description, which would be a great loss in this instance.

    Please reassign this bug ( to Herman Cosmin or somebody from his team

    Thank you!

    Copying a question for Herman Cosmin from Journal module forum:

    Will this plugin support Moodle 3.3?
