    Hi, Sebastian.

    In more recent versions, I took that out after the new messaging system was introduced and causing errors in the plugin. If there is someone who knows about the new messaging system and would be willing to help reintroduce that, I'd welcome the help.

    Hi,

    Hi again,

    I still have the problem with an empty student list when I go to "Overview of students". I have courses where it works just fine and others where it dos not.

    How do I add pictures to my post here?

    Hi, Flemming.

    That sounds like a bug. Please report that on the Tracker. If you can add steps to replicate the problem, that would be useful.

    Hi
    Wondering if you would be able to add the ability to choose a grouping in the 'visible only to' drop down? We use both groups and groupings. It would be reeeeeally useful to be able to select a grouping sometimes instead of a group smile
    Cheers

    This block appears as it should for administrators - but not for teachers or students.
    I can't see any issues with settings or permissions so I'm stuck!
    What else should I check please?

    Hi Michael, I posted a bug report last year (https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/CONTRIB-7387) and also a post here about it (July 18th 2018) and did not receive any reply to either.
    My courses are about to begin again this year and I'm worried about having the same issue.
    Is there a way to get support for this plugin?

    Hi, all.

    The messaging is back, thanks mostly to Jono Fowler! You'll need to be using the new messaging from Moodle 3.4 onwards to use that.

    Michelle: It was nice to meet you the other day at the MoodleMoot. I'm thinking about how to combine groups and groupings in a way that works.
    Clare: I tested the block with admin, teacher and student roles, but it seemed to work. Perhaps you could turn on debugging in your site to get more clues. If you do find some, perhaps you could report this as an issue on the Moodle tracker.
    Stephen: I've commented on your tracker issue.

    I have an activity that requires view and file submission to be complete. As a student, I tested the plugin for the above scenario
    Results:
    1) I uploaded a file - I saw yellow in the progress bar - viewed by not completed.
    2) I removed the submission - I get a green - Activity Completed.

    My students must have found this as they are now saying that they submitted the file but it is lost by the system - Look there is even a green mark for completion.

    Is this a bug?

    Hi, Kirtiman.

    I tried to replicated this and I found out a couple of things. When a student submits an assignment (I assume you are not talking about a Workshop), the bar segment goes yellow to indicate it has been submitted. If I use "Remove submission" from the Assignment interface (as teacher or student), the submitted file is removed, but the submission entry remains, so the bar continues to show yellow; that's without any changes to the Activity completion settings.

    When I add the Activity completion settings you suggest, they are considered before the check for the submission. So because a submission has been made and removed, the assignment reports that the student has viewed and submitted, even after you remove the submission.

    So I think the block is consistent with what the Assignment module is reporting for completion. The Activity completion report also shows the same. Whether that makes sense or whether that's a bug in the Assignment module may be another question. I find it a bit confusing when the submission entry remains after "removing" the "submission" (file). You might want to consider that and report it as a bug in the Moodle Tracker (if it hasn't been reported already).

    In the meantime, I'm not sure if you are grading these assignments, but that you may want to include that in your completion settings.

    @Chaitanya - the Completion Progress bar, tracks progress within a course. I don't think that it will be able to work on the Dashboard (which isn't a course), which is why it probably removes itself.

    @Chaitanya - first thing is to make sure that Completion tracking is enabled at site level (Administration > Advanced Features > Enable Completion Tracking. You then need to ensure it is enabled at course level, go into the Course Settings to turn this on if necessary, you then need to have some activities or resources set up to be trackable. If you do, then boxes will appear on right hand side which get ticked once complete - it is these ticks that the Completion Progress bar picks up (the exception is assignments, which behave slightly oddly where if you set completion based on achievement of a grade, the ticks on right will mark a non-passed assignment as complete, but the Completion Progress bar correctly recognises a non-pass assignment as not being a pass. In terms of the overview of students button this should be default for the editing teacher and non-editing teacher role.

    Hi, all.

    Yes, it does work on the Site home and Dashboard pages and shows students a combined view of all the Completion Progress blocks from courses that use this block.

    You can add the block, but if it is being removed, you may want to make changes to the permissions for editing the Dashboard.

    Hi, all.

    I've added grouping functions to the instance settings and to the Overview page. I hope this helps those people who were requesting it.
