    Hello, everybody!!! Has anyone tested this plugin in version 3.9?

    I have just published a new version that fixes the select all/none issue on the Overview page and advertises support for Moodle 3.5–3.9.

    This plugin has worked well for us in the past. We upgraded our site to M3.9.1 yesterday. One issue we are noticing now it that in "Overview of Students" the width allotted to the progress bar is very narrow but there are large empty spaces around the checkbox, student image, and progress %. I've switched to the "scroll" option but I prefer the squeezed. Is there any way to adjust the relative width of the columns of the table? I'd like to make the bar at least 2 or 3 times as wide. Not sure if this will work - but here is a link to a screen shot.

    Thanks for your help. John

    As a follow up to my comment on 7 Aug. I now see that, with our upgrade from M3.5 to M3.9.1, the Completion Progress Bar also was upgraded to a new version. I am checking now to see if we can just revert to the old version again which has the wider bar. I am still curious if the new version can be adjusted to display a wider bar. Thanks, John

    John - Hopefully someone from the development team of the plugin, will comment to clarify - but I have a hunch that the squeezing of the table may be created by Moodle itself rather than the plugin. I notice that the layout of the table in the forum activity has done the same thing, and somewhere else (but I forget where) since upgrades.

    @John: I did not notice a problem with either Boost or Classic themes when I tested them. What is your site's theme, or which theme is it derived from? Feel free to email me if you prefer (address in profile).

    It appears that a recent change in 3.9 (MDL-69336) has busted the setting of column widths on the table.

    Jonathon, we are using Fordson for both the Frontpage theme and also for this particular course. But switching the course theme to Boost did not change the display widths.

    The release I just published will fix the column widths problem.

    Jonathon, Thank you for the update. The Progress Completion Bar is functioning well again. Some of our courses have 60 or 70 monitored activities so that bar was really impossibly compressed before this fix. I appreciate the quick response.

    Hi and thanks for this great plugin, is it possible to change the code so that when you click on one of the tiles/blocks it will open the target assignment in a new window as opposed to self, it would be a great feature for assignment markers who are reviewing submissions from a student, hope that makes sence and thanks in advance.

    James - have you seen this plugin: this is really useful for assignment markers to see what needs marking, including a direct link to the exact marking page for each submission. I use this in hand in hand with the completion progress plugin - and think they work brilliantly together.

    James - There is an indirect way of opening these in new tabs. We suggest this for our trainers who have a large number of assignments to grade. See this excerpt from one of my video tutorials.

    When using Assignment activity and the students submit in groups and the Activity completion is set only to request "Student must submit to this activity to complete it ", then the progress bar only turns yellow. Is there a bug?

    Good afternoon!
    I ran into a problem like this: when clicking on the table column header link in the page /blocks/completion_progress/overview.php, the sort works only in one direction and does not change.
