The Jalali calendar (also known as the Modern Iranian calendar or the Solar hijri calendar) is a solar calendar which is the official calendar in Iran and Afghanistan.

The calendar type system was introduced in 2.6, so this will not work in any Moodle versions earlier than this.

    I found my answer . the profilefield_datetime plugin uses min and max date based on Gregorian calendar . I fixed my problem by convert to Gregorian date before processing date :

    In profilefield_datetime and in field.class.php and in "edit_save_data_preprocess" method I replaced This line :

    $datetime = userdate($datetime, '%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S');


    $datetime = date('Y-m-d-H-m-s', $datetime);

    I installed this calendar on Moodle 3.5 recently. Today I started using Moodle and I tried to enroll some students in a class with enrollment start and end times. After I saved the times, I found that they are reset to 1 Farvardin 1278.
    To solve the problem, I changed my calendar preference to Georgian, and revised the dates. It was correct.
    Again I changed the calendar to Persian. The enrollment dates were correct. I clicked on the save button without any changes. The dates again reset to 1 Farvardin 1278.
    Please help.

    Hi there
    It is not working with version 3.8 STABLE of IOMAD, Im not sure about original moodle v 3.8 but I think there may be same behavior.
    after install, Persian option appears on Appearance ---> Calendar, but after changing option to Persian, calendar , over the system, dates are still Gregorian.
