    Hi Paulius,
    This is an intended behaviour and not a bug.
    Moodle does not allow displaying the file upload dialogue to a not logged in user for security purposes.
    Therefore, this plugin cannot display the upload field on the sign-up page or Moodle would throw an error.

    Is there any way to define by role who can see this profile field?

    Hi Kirstin,
    As it is standard with any profile field you add to Moodle, you have the 3 options of making the field invisible (only admins can see), visible to the user (the user him/herself and admins) or visible to everyone.

    You cannot set the visibility based on role.

    Hello! Are you planning to update the plugin for versions 3.5 and higher?
    Or does he work with them?

    Hi Nikolai
    I haven't tested myself but I believe it should work with 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7 as well.

    Hello to everyone! I would like to add a field in the file upload form of the Moodle platform. How can I modify it? Through "filepicker.php"? Please, I want a simple solution! Thank you!

    I tested it on version 3.9 and it worked. Very useful. Has the plugin been discontinued?

    Hi Larisa,
    The plugin is not discontinued. However, maintaining plugins for new Moodle versions takes time. I recently updated some of my plugins, but I can only maintain a limited number of plugins for free. I will upgrade as soon as I have some funds to work on this.
