The reengagement plugin provides a way for you to remind students to return to the course and complete activities.

The email is sent a specified period of time after a starting event, which may be enrolment in the course, or completing an earlier activity.

If the user has already completed the target activity, no email is sent.

You can also use this plugin to selectively release timed content in a course.

This plugin is developed by the Moodle Partner Catalyst IT

    @Dan - thanks, but apparently they don't work well. In the forum there are other users reporting the same problem. Is there another plugin that works similar to this one?

    Is it compatible with 3.9+ version of Moodle?

    Hi. I installed the plugin to my moodle 3.9. and set the notification "never". just set the engagement time to 1 min. but it doesn't accept that and change to 5 mins when I display the settings again. I said ok and keep it 5 mins. I adjusted the restrictions to previous and next activities. I completed the previous activity and wait for 5 mins but nothing happen. It doesn't activate the next activity. Am I doing right? or that plugin doesn't make such restrictions? thank you.

    @aziz - the reengagment activity isn't really designed to work with such low values - there are a few different things that could prevent it from running so quickly. As you are just starting out using the plugin I'd suggest looking at some of the examples mentioned in the documentation and ask for help in the community forums if you are still struggling to understand how to use this plugin. Good luck!

    @Dan Marsden - Thank you for your response. Actually I am using it what exactly it offers me. I set the time, I restricted the activity and wait for the reengagement time to finish and enable reengaging, but it didn't work. It is set to 5 mins to reengage but it let me to reengege after 11 or 12 minutes. I set the time for 10 minutes but waited 19minutes to reengage. Thank you.

    Hi, we're looking for a way to notify / email learners when their course is due in 30 days, 7 days and then past due. Would this plugin accomplish that? Or is there existing functionality in Moodle that I'm missing. Thanks!

    @Nick - yes you can use reengagement to do this. You would create 3 reengagement activities. One for each notification. Please use the forums if you need further help

    Thanks for this very useful plugin.

    Is there a way to make this work with groups?

    @ P H - there's a PR here that adds group support but we haven't had a chance to review it yet - feel free to test it and give feedback by adding a comment on the PR:

    Hi Rolf we're not aware of any issues with using it in 3.10 - the latest version of our plugins is always in the github repo and we don't regularly update the one stored in the plugins db.
    haven't had a chance to respond in the forums sorry, hopefully someone else gets a free moment to help!
