    Hey there,

    Thought I'd give this a try today. Getting a 500 error on trying to install the plugin.

    Moodle 3.1. Trying your latest version.

    I intend to share the configurable reports I have made to teachers. I added permission for them to view the configurable reports block yet they cannot still see the report. Any suggestions?

    Hi, just a quick question that i couldn't find anywhere answered: can i change the name of the generated xls file? Right now the plug generates a 'report-xxxx.xls' the number i think being the timestamp. I, however, would like to configure it to be 'my_most_awesome_report.xls'. Can it be done?

    Hi Juan,

    I installed the plugin on 2.9 and the plugin works fine, but after I installed the plugin this option from moodle does not work anymore: Upload Courses admin/tool/uploadcourse/index.php I use Upload courses for bulk creation of courses based on another course as a template. The problem that the plugin cause is that the course is created but it does not import all the content from the other template course. I have been doing this process for a while. I create hundreds of similar courses. So this option is really important for us.

    I tested it by removing the configurable reports plugin and the issue was gone.
    I really like the plugin and I have an important report already running and being use for many.

    I will appreciate any help,

    @Edmund - Which page are they looking at? Do they need to add the configurable reports block to a page?

    @Martin, I will be adding a "Reports" link with submenu in top menu of Moodle, all the reports I have created will appear on that link.

    Is there a way not to auto load the report? All I want is our teachers to select first any filter I have provided before the report will load. Some reports are huge thus I need the filter first to be selected before it loads any report.

    Hi Juan thanks by the way for this awesome report tool. Is there a way to add custom filters like semester (in English), academic year, department and so on? What are steps in order to push this filter to appear in the filters of configurable reports? I tried also duplicating a certain filter with another name, but I always get an error.

    Hi Juan, is there a way to modify the text of Search Text filter instead of the default text "Filter" to change it to something like "Academic Year" or any text I would want?

    Hi everybody, i have moodle 3.0.4+ version and installed configurable reports ont it (v 3.1.0). The problem i face actually is when i type this request is that only the students are reported and not the other roles like teacher, manager, ... even i've verified in moodle that everyone exist :

    The request:

    user2.firstname AS Prenom,
    user2.lastname AS Nom, AS Email,
    course.fullname AS Cours
    ,(SELECT shortname FROM prefix_role WHERE id=en.roleid) AS ROLE
    ,(SELECT name FROM prefix_role WHERE id=en.roleid) AS RoleName

    FROM prefix_course AS course
    JOIN prefix_enrol AS en ON en.courseid =
    JOIN prefix_user_enrolments AS ue ON ue.enrolid =
    JOIN prefix_user AS user2 ON ue.userid =

    the result is :

    1 student 2 Conformité
    2 2 Conformité
    3 student 2 Conformité
    4 student 2 Conformité
    5 student 3 Déblocage
    6 3 Déblocage
    7 student 3 Déblocage
    8 student 4 Fermeture des caisses
    9 4 Fermeture des caisses
    10 student 4 Fermeture des caisses
    11 student 5 test

    If moodle not installed on root of site, style.php import on lines 1 2 and 3 should be something like @import url("wwwroot/blocks/configurable_reports/js/datatables/media/css/jquery.dataTables.css");
    @import url("wwwroot/blocks/configurable_reports/js/codemirror/lib/codemirror.css");
    @import url("wwwroot/blocks/configurable_reports/js/codemirror/addon/display/fullscreen.css");
