Admin tools: Cohort auto roles management
This plugin is based on the core tool_cohortroles plugin and allows the selection of a role rather than an individual to assign a manager/mentor/parent to a user.
If a user is assigned the selected role at any level - (site/course/category etc) they will be assigned as the mentor/manager/parent to all users within the cohorts selected they are also a member of.
- Cohort "Engineering" has the users, "John, Mary, Steven, George"
- Cohort "6th Floor" has the users "John, David, Simon"
- John is enrolled in course 1 with the custom role "Support"
- David is assigned the custom role "support" at the site-level.
- A Parent/Mentor/manager role has been created in the system to allow user-level role assignments - see:https://docs.moodle.org/en/Parent_role
- The cohortautoroles plugin is configured to find all users in the "support" role, assign them to the parent/manger/mentor role.
John will be automatically assigned as the mentor to "Mary, Steven, George, David, Simon"
David will be automatically assigned as the mentor to "John, Simon"
NOTE: Mentors will only be assigned if they are also a member of the cohort as well.
