Maintained by Picture of Mark WardMark Ward, Picture of Emma RichardsonEmma Richardson, Picture of Arnaud TrouvéArnaud Trouvé
A local plugin which automatically assigns enrolled users on a course into groups dependant upon information within their user profile. (Now with custom profile field support - called User Info Field in settings.) This plugin will create, update, and delete groups automatically to match the users on your course. All behaviour is event-driven and so will occur within page loads. The system can also monitor manual group setting changes and moderate them to ensure that groups are kept neat and tidy.

Auto Group 2.4.1
