    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.

    I upgraded this block to $plugin->version = 2015010100; on my new Moodle 2.9+ installation. When in the grid course format the checklists in the block show through the shadow box that opens up when I click a topic. Here is the forum link to the post I made which shows a picture.

    I'm not sure why the checklist bars are all different colours - that suggests that someone has made some customisations to the checklist output. I suggest you check with the person who made those changes. Either way, it looks like a z-order issue, you will need to adjust the z-order value in the CSS for either the checklist bars to the overlay that should appear on top of them.

    Thanks for the helpful hint. I got it figured out. And yes my school district has been heavily using the checklist for years and I tweak the output every time we upgrade to be a different color depending on the percentage complete. Sorry to bother you with this question but thanks for the help.
    100% green
    90% blue
    80% orange
    70% purple
    60% yellow <60% red

    Dunno if it's just me but everytime I upgrade the checklist module to the newer version it corrupts the existing checklists. I have to uninstall the checklist block and checklist module each time and reinstall it to get everything working again. It's just a pain as I have to setup all the checklists again for all my courses.

    This has happened everytime I upgrade to the newer version for the past 2 or 3 upgrades now.

    Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Sorry I forgot to take a screenshot of the error.

    Nevermind I figured it out.

    Turns out it was just a file permissions setting error whenever I upgraded the plugin. Weird.
