    In not sure quite what you mean. The block only monitors activities. It has never monitored sections.

    Question - I use Font Awsome icons in my activity titles (ie. ) and when I hover over activity titles in the Progress Block, it shows the code instead of the icon. Not a big deal but was wondering if there was a way to get it to show the icon in the title when hovering in the block. Thanks!

    The tags in my example didn’t appear above. It should have read (i class=“fa fa-apple”)(/i) Activity Title....

    I can't seem to get the Completion Progress to sort by groups that I have made in the course. The option is there to sort by "visible groups", but when I pick a group, all of the students are still included. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

    When using the old progress bar, the option to "check" students and e-mail them was present, just like screenshots in the description. We are now using completion progress and the checkboxes and dropdown list with the option to e-mail students does not appear. Has anyone else found this? This is a really useful feature, any information on how to solve this would be very much appreciated.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Ged
    I have the same issue, we can not see the checkbox to select students and send an email to them, like appears in screenshots.
    We had test itt in moodle 3.1 and Moodle 3.5 with the same result. We don't know how to fix it or if there is any configuration option that we have to modify.

    Hi, all.

    Yes, I had to take the messaging out when the core messaging system changed and it broke this plugin. If someone more familiar with the new messaging system can propose a parch, that would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the block, it's very useful. Have you thought of adding a possibility to show different kinds of "progress bars" on one course, like in the predecessor (Progress Bar block)? If I'm not mistaken there is no way of having "levels" of completion? For example, by the topic?

    Another feature our teachers are missing from "days of the Progress Bar" is the ability to set all of the criterion from one page UI, now there is a lot of clicking to do.

    Hi, Samuli.

    Yes, you can still have multiple blocks. You can be selective about what activities are included in each block through the block's configuration, but completion is dependent on the activity.

    Samuli- use the Dates report to set all dates from one page!

    Michael, so I see! Somehow I was mistaken about the multiple instances and customizability. John, thanks for the tip, I'll have a look at that plugin.

    Hi Michael,
    Great plugin ( I was slow to appreciate it but love it now). I have a situation (feature?? Problem??) with unmarked assignment re-attempts. They show as failed even though the assignment has been resubmitted and not yet marked. Am I missing something?

    This occurs with or without the save and submit settings.

    Hi Michael.

    We recently upgraded our Moodle to version 3.5. However, after this upgrade the Completion Progress changed the way it worked. We use this plugin to track students' progress in several self-assessment tests. In previous versions we tracked whether the student completed the test with atleast 75% success (indicated with a GREEN colored block), failed to achieve the minimum 75% (indicated with the RED colored block) or didn't take the test all (indicated with the BLUE colored block).

    However, after upgrading Moodle, after the student takes the test and fails it the plugin doesn't indicate it by coloring the block RED. The block that represents the failed self-assessment test remains BLUE. It's like it does not register the attempt at all. Is this a feature that was changed, is it a problem with the new version of Moodle or is there something else that is causing this problem?

    Looking forward for you assisstance,

    Hi, Danijel.

    Perhaps there has been a change in the completion system. The block hasn't changed.
