    When you are in the overview of students page the mouse over does not work. This makes it difficult. This screen was useful as if there were lots of red squares for a task I could mouse over and see what the task was. Now I have to actually click on the task and open it to see what it was.

    Hi, Rob.

    I think that should be resolved in the latest version from a few days ago. Let me know if that doesn't work for you.

    Hi Michael,
    I have just responded to this discussion,, been there a little while without reply, and wondered if perhaps this is possible?

    Hi, Colin.

    I think linking the Completion Progress block to activities results would lead to a result similar to what we had in the old Progress Bar block, with the block peering into the tables of other activities and requiring a huge amount of maintenance. If Gradebook was used universally by activities, that would be a possibility, but to my knowledge, that isn't the case.

    Hello ,
    Thank you for sharing with us this awesome plugin ,
    My question : is it possible to use this plugin to control the progress of the student in a video-course (a course that contains videos) ?
    for example a course which includes 1 video of 10 minutes if the student watched 5 minutes, the progress bar shows me : Progress: 50%
    thanks in advance.

    Hi, Asma.

    No, this block displays progress over a series of activities in a course.

    Hello ,
    Thank you Michael, a course can be a series of videos for example ,( topic 1 contains video 1 , topic 2 contains video 2 ... ) , so how can we control the progress of this course ?

    Hi, Asma.

    The progress is controlled by the student as they complete the activity, which could be as simple as viewing something. I suggest you look into Activity Completion.

    hello, when we add a page, for example to course course and select the first choice (Do not indicate activity completion) on Activity completion, this activity doesn't appear in
    COMPLETION PROGRESS Block and if the course contains only this activity, the block shows: "There are no activities or resources with activity completion set or no activities or resources have been selected. Set activity completion of activities and resources, then configure this block.".
    so please, how can I indicate to Moodle to consider this resource (page, file...) like an activity without allowing learners to mark themselves as complete ?
    In the block settigns we have "activities included " will it help me ?? and how can i select activities to include ?? thank you very much !

    Hi, Asma.

    I think you answered your own question, but I can clarify. The block relies on completion settings. If you don't have any activists with completion, it won't show anything to a student and gives a teacher that warning. You can exclude activities through the block's configuration, but they still need to have completion turned on.

    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'showInfo' of undefined in HTMLDivElement.onmouseover.

    We have received this JS error for 216 unique students since 06.03.2018.

    It seems the Showinfo is called before initializing the (undefined) element on mouseover.

    Can you please fix it since it affects many users?

    I have created an issue for in JIRA -

    Hi, Kahraman.

    This may be resolved in more recent versions. Let's communicate on the ticket you created.

    HI Michael! I was really keen to use the previous version of this block in one of my courses, but because it didn't appear to recognise the OU Blog, I couldn't add that to my list of activities for the block manage. Will the OU Blog be compatible with this new version? Cheers, Karin

    Hi, Karin.

    The Progress Bar block had support (database hacks) for a number of modules added to it, including standard and contributed plugins. The Completion Progress block avoids this by relying on the completion system built into Moodle. I think there are some basic completion settings for all activities and some add specific completion settings. Give it a try and let us know how you go.

    Hi Michael,
    We use this block extensively and love it.
    Some of our courses use the Multi-Language Content (v2) When you hover over the boxes, the names of the associated assessment shows the unfiltered text, e.g. {mlang en}Assessments{mlang}{mlang zh_tw}單位評估{mlang}{mlang zh_cn}单位评估{mlang}{mlang ms}Assessments{mlang}. I note on the filter page the author said that
    "this plugin only has a chance to process and filter content that is output to the user by using the Moodle output functions that process filters. As of today, those functions are format_text and format_string (see for the differences).
    In your code you should use something like: echo format_text($SomeCustomField, of parameters here...);"
    Would be great if the assessment names showed as the filtered output.
