    I'm having exact same problem reported by Chantal, I'm using ubuntu 10.04 and moodle 2.4. I went through standard install procedure and now finding "Plugin Dependency Check" that I absolutely CAN NOT overcome. Looks like some folks have somehow fixed this. Please help explain what was a fix. (I'm complete novice to moodle, install or use).

    Appreciate any pointer.

    GT This is a known problem with the Moodle automatic installer - if you automatically install a plugin without first installing the other plugins it depends on (and to be fair, the instructions at the top of this page clearly state that the checklist block does not work without the checklist activity), then the only way to resolve it is to manually install the plugin that is required.

    So, you just need to download the mod_checklist plugin (linked to above) and upload it to your server (read the included instructions for full details). You should then find the install for both plugins proceeds without any further problems.

    When I add the Checkilist block, select a group to show 'all participant', it shows a long list of usernames who are not in this course. I don't know how the block got the names from. Anyone has similar issue? Thanks

    William - the block shows all the users who have the capability 'mod/checklist:updateown' - in the context of the linked checklist activity.

    YOu should check if you have given that capability to some of your users at the site level, rather than at the course level.

    I checked my other Moodle sites, looks like the Manager role has mod/checklist:updateown allowed as default, may I suggest to change it to 'not set' in next version?

    William - the default for that permission, in my code, is for only students to have that capability. If the manager role also has that capability, then that must be due to a change made on your site.

    I know the Checklist activity works in 2.7. Does the block work as well?

    Should work fully in M2.7 (no problems spotted when I gave it a quick test)

    When I restore a course from a backup without user data the students from the previous section still appear in the checklist block for the teachers. Once I go to the settings for the block and re-save then the students disappear. This has been an issue in all of the versions we've used.

    Hi, I suspect this is due to the block still being linked to the original checklist, rather than getting matched up to the new courses's copy of the checklist. Should be a fairly simple fix, now it has been reported to me.

    Jon - that should now be fixed.

    Davo, do you know of any way to show some sort of cross courses view with this? I was at a meeting on Friday and was asked about this: maybe a page with a drop down to choose a course for person X out of a qualification.

    Derek - it is not currently possible to do that with the checklist block. It would probably not be that difficult to develop such functionality. However, I would be unlikely to have time to write it, unless there was funding available, so I can do it as part of my day job.
