    Tim, is there a plan of when this plugin will be updated as stable for Moodle 3.2 and 3.3?

    Hi Tim,

    I'm with Trina. I can't see where the new core functionality adds the ability to change dates of multiple items on a single screen/location. I don't use the calendar and I every unit I need to change the expected dates and close dates for each item. The Dates "report" made it much more tolerable, but it seems to be gone from our Moodle since we updated to 3.4.1.

    I have to agree with Brian, the most common functionality of the dates report is setting up a class that has been rolled over from a previous semester, so all of the dates will need to be changed. While this could technically be done from the calendar, the dates report operates as a list, while it might be more difficult to move assignments 6 months or a year in the future. I agree if you are trying to move an assignment from Tuesday to Thursday the calendar option is very good, but in general, I still see a use for this plugin.

    Also Tim, it looks like someone has gone into Github and done a pull request to add the "remind me to grade by date" in Oct 2017.

    Hi Tim,

    I'm agreeing with Brian and Ed... there is nothing in the new core functionality that handles the course roll-over use case like Dates. I can test any updates on v3.4.

    Tim, There are 3 pull requests that you may want to look at. One is from me that adds a timeline view which is very helpful. One adds a new date that was added to the assignment activity. The last one adds support for another module. Is this code still actively maintained or should it be forked or reassigned? Thanks for a great tool!

    Or 3.5. We really like this plugin, but will be updating form 3.1 to 3.5 next month. Great tool! David

    Any chance this can be updated to support Moodle 3.2.x? We upgraded our environment and even though the plugin was able to be installed, it's not saving the dates.

    Hi, any news on a Moodle V3.5 update?

    It is a very useful tool! However, it does not seem to work with "choicegroup" activity.

    Each different activity that is supported needs its own code to do the right thing for that activity (in I don't think anyone has implemented choicegroup support yet.

    I finally got around to pushing a version of this plugin that works with recent Moodles. Sorry it took so long.

    Tim, as with everybody else, we really appreciate this functionality. I noticed on our update that the page now is loading dates for all Activity Types including Labels which it is really slowing down the load time, sometimes timing out. Is there a setting to limit the Activity Types that are loaded?

    This is a great tool.

    I just posted about an (apparent) bug whereby the calendar system is not updating to show new dates that get entered via the Dates Report Plugin, but do update correctly if I then directly access the already-updated activity and simply save it again.
