    Joël, I have used it with success on Moodle 3.2 and PHP 7.0 (but not yet 7.1). I suppose you have already seen that the author has another plugin, Completion Progress Block, that replaces this one.

    Hi Micheal,
    Thanks for developing this great tool. Are you planning to make this block available for Moodle 3.2?

    Hi, Bert.

    If you use the Completion Progress block, all activities that support completion can be included. I suggest you switch to that.

    Hello guys,
    I have spotted an issue when you try to connect SCORM activity with progress bar. When SCOMR is not finished by any of students and you log in as a teacher you can use [Overview of students] button to display all progress of all students in course. Then when you click on not-attempted SCORM in any students you will get an error 'Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: mod_scorm_attempt_bar requires a attemptids value.'. The link to not-attempt by student SCORM leads to URL/mod/scorm/report/userreport.php?id=XXXX&user=XXXX
    This was spotted and tested for moodle 3.1

    Hi, Slawomir.

    This error looks like it's within the SCORM module.

    There will be no more updates to this plugin.

    Use the Completion Progress block instead.

    Hi, I just changed the plugin name in the german translation. The name is now 'Fortschrittsbalken (alt)' for Moodle 3.1 and 3.0. I hope that will animate everybody to switch to the Completion Progress block instead.

    Hi MIchael

    Your plugin shows how far thorugh the unit and what parts they have done. Brilliant!

    Do you have a plugin that will allow teachers to see how much progress has been made in each part of the unit.

    For example, some of our lessons within a unit take 4-5 hours as there is a lot to do. Teachers are asking if there is a way they can see how far through the lesson the student students are.
