    @Michael - I understand your argument and would not want to contradict it. My question refers exclusively to the participant overview for teachers. Maybe I'm wrong, but I can imagine that quite a few course creators make the content accessible according to the progress of the candidates.

    @Dave - Thanks for the tip, but as you say "Completion Progress" is a much more attractive option.

    @John - Hmm.. I've set the activity completion settings as Student must receive a grade to complete this actvity and Require Passing grade. However, if a submission is made, no colour is registered (so doesn't turn yellow). But, if they pass (after being graded), it does turn green.

    Hi there, We have one course where the mouse over is not appearing on the course page. When clicking the segments they navigate accordingly. Is there any way to troubleshoot this?

    This is very helpful. May I suggest to provide an option to download the report.

    Hi, Thanks for the plugin it has been really useful, we have recently updated our site to moodle 3.9 , we hd a previous version of the plugin but when we update it to the mosts recent verson we are getting the following problem, the style for the background of the completion is white and I am not able to change using the normal method, we get an error saying /blocks/completion_progress/css.php?v=-1” was blocked due to MIME type (“text/html”) mismatch (X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff). Has you come across this problem ? Many Thanks

    @paul shearer: What do you see if you open the css.php URL itself? Feel free to email me rather than us conversing here in the comments.

    @paul shearer: I see your issue is related to something others had reported. Since it's a pre-release version you're using, please fetch the latest change off the Git repository.

    Our site language default is English but we have a course currently available in English, French and Spanish. Activities in the course are restricted by language so a person only sees those that match their language selection. The progress completion bar is configured so that the activities in all languages are set to be tracked.

    This setup seems to work fine for the student - they see their progress tracked in their bar - and only those activities in their selected language.

    But a teacher (non-editing teacher) can only see the English language assignments in "Overview of students" - no matter what language the teacher or student has selected.

    So the problem is that "Overview of students" only is displaying English language Assignments. How do we get the assignments which are restricted to other languages to display?

    @John - I think you would have to change the permissions for the no editing teacher role in question, to allow it to ignore restrictions. The other option would be to set up a checklist activity which tracks the same items - as this by default shows all items not just the ones you can see.

    @ Dave - Thanks for the suggestion. I can give this a try but I am doubting that changing permissions would work. Currently a teacher whose default language is, for example, Spanish, will only see English assignments listed in Overview of Students. It seems like the "Overview of Students" itself is restricted to only show English.

    @Dave Foord - I passed your suggestion (about using the checklist activity as an alternative) on to the course manager. He said it was a bit of work to set up for each language but it did the trick. Thanks! Of course we still would be glad for some sort of fix for the Completion Progress Bar and multi-language.

    Change submision status or Add submission status of 'Resubmitted' for assignments using attempt until activity is pass.

    When auto reopening of attempts until pass is on and submission is made on new 'attempt' and the grade is not pass, status remains as 'Completed' (green) even after student has resubmitted next attempt. Even if student remove the attempt the status remain as Completed. Users (mostly teacher) cannot see where resubmission has been made to previously failed attempt.

    It would be great if an new status, in example a status with color yellow and red cross. That mean task resumited and not passed.

    This enhancement adds a new status for this purpose, including a new 'Resubmitted' language string and background colour (with setting).

    I guess it is not possible to use the plugin in restricting access to activities?
    I mean, I would like to use percentage of block completion as an access restriction (for example, 80% of block A completion will give an access to certificate).
    Can't see such an option. Am I blind? Is it planned?

    Hey! I am using 3.8.4 and upgraded to the latest version of 20210504 and I am interested in having the rows collapse after they have been opened once you move away from a row in the overview section. I know there has been some discussion regarding this in past versions. I had an earlier version working but since the update I haven't been able to get this to work. I did try to implement the forked version from March 2021 that is mentioned on Github but it isn't working. Any thoughts? Also, I would welcome this functionality to be introduced into the plugin. From a usability standpoint, it seems to make sense. Thanks for any input or direction the community can provide. Best regards!

    Hi Jonathon, I am using the block "Completion Progress" and I need to apply it to the class so that all students have it in sight, but I only get it to appear in my user. How can I apply the block to all students' profiles without having to ask them to add it to them?

    Thanks a lot!
