    Chrysanthi - there are a few things that can cause a percentage difference between the completion progress block and the course completed percentage. The Completion progress block will only show items the person has access to - so there may be items they haven't unlocked yet which will then affect the overall percentage. Also there is a 'bug' with the assignment activitiy in Moodle, in that if you grade an assignment as not yet a pass, the Completion progress block will correctly recognise that the assignment hasn't been completed, but the course completion will think that because it has been graded (even though graded as not a pass) it is therefore complete. This will also give you different percentages. Note Moodle are in process of fixing the assignment bug, but I don't know when the fix will come out. Dave

    Many thanks Dave! The bug in the Assignment module probably explains it for us.

    Hi Micheal, this is a useful tool for our institution. Will you be upgrading the tool to Moodle 3.8 soon?

    Any chance of an update for 3.8? Is it in the works perhaps?

    I can not find it in my Moodle, and it is installed.

    Hi, all.

    I've put up a new version for 2.8 to 3.8 with a few fixes and improvements.

    For those wanting it, you can now force icons to be displayed and whether the "Last in course" column is shown.

    Hi Michael, thank you for the plugin.

    We have a problem with one of the courses we have this error:

    Default exception handler: Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: Attempt to require a JavaScript file that does not exist.
    Debug: /user/module.js
    Error code: codingerror
    * line 702 of /lib/outputrequirementslib.php: coding_exception thrown
    * line 839 of /lib/outputrequirementslib.php: call to page_requirements_manager->js_fix_url()
    * line 1122 of /lib/outputrequirementslib.php: call to page_requirements_manager->js_module()
    * line 1101 of /lib/outputrequirementslib.php: call to page_requirements_manager->js_init_code()
    * line 343 of /blocks/progress/overview.php: call to page_requirements_manager->js_init_call()

    On other courses the same block works fine, we try to purge caches but the same thing, any recommendations?
    Thank you.

    Hi, Marijan.

    That's an odd error. It looks like files are missing, but how can that be the case if it works in some areas but not others. It may also be some interaction between this block and other code on the page. If you have other contributed blocks on the page in that course and not in other courses, that may make a difference. It suggests a problem with the overview page. I'm not sure what you're looking at when you see this error. Do you see any page loading at all? Does it load but not work? Does it not make a difference to functionality?

    I suggest that if you can find a way to replicate that, perhaps something specific to the course where it is used, please create a support ticket on and we can deal with it there.

    Hey Michael,
    Thanks for updating the plugin to 3.8. Quick question for you, is there any way that this plugin can tell the students how long they have spent on a course? The courses I'm running require the students to be logged in and studying the course for a minimum of 10 hours, do you know of a way that the student will be able to check how much time they have spent online on the moodle course?
    Thanks so much.

    Thanks again Michael, I've tried that plugin before with mixed results.
    Unfortunately the authors seems to have abandoned it. It has not been updated since July 2018 and they have not replied to multiple questions in over a year.
    I really think a feature like this should be part of the Moodle Core, it's so frustrating to have to rely on plugin authors who've lost interest.
    Thanks for trying though.

    We have 2 questions (improvements)

    1. If you click on a label in the progress bar – nothing happens – can it be made so when you click you automatically scroll down to the label, on the course page.
    2. When you click on an assignment or file, you are sent to the assignment page. Can it be made as an option? (foreach in the block setting). So, you either is send to assignment, or send (scrolled down) to assignment on course page. On long course pages some users might lose track of where they were on the course. (Yes, we have some long courses)
