    Hello Moodle Enthusiasts,

    I installed this on Moodle 3.3.5 and it causes moodle to hang when a user clicks the "Enroll Me" button. When it hangs, it appears to affect the entire system (other moodle users may hang as well) Any ideas what's up?

    Although a severe issue, it appears to otherwise work : sends the email, and allows for enrollment/cancellation etc.

    I would really like to have this functionality if I can figure out what it's doing.

    Hello, this looks very helpful plugin, thanks!
    Is there possible to change approval role? Like i would like to mentor approve his students to courses?
  • Yes, that's me

    @Ilva P.: Do you mean the role which is assigned in the course to the approved user or do you mean the role which is able to approve users to a course? Both is possible and explained in the handbook; http://www.emeneoplugins.chocolatelms.com/course/index.php?categoryid=5

    I would like to use the plugin to allow students to enroll in scholarly work. A student wishing to write a paper requests enrollment in a course. In the comment field, he enters the topic of the paper. After submitting, the examiner receives his notification e-mail and can decide whether to accept or reject the enrollment with this topic of the paper. That works so far. However, after accepting the enrollment application in Moodle, the examiner can now no longer read the topic of the paper. In other words, what has been entered in the "comment" field can now nowhere be read in Moodle. Here it would be nice if the plugin could be extended so that the information in "comment" is permanently stored, for example in students' course-related notes.
    Or have I just overlooked where the "comment" after accepting the enrollment can still be read?

    Is the only documentation for this plugin in the Emeneo Plugin World? It seems that I have to pay $25 to look at it there.

    Hi Denis, Thank you very much for the translation! Regarding the bug: what did you do before that happened? We have recently updated the plugin. Does the bug still persist?

    Is there a plan to make this plugin multilang-compatible? I refer to messages sent in response to request to enroll. There is only a single input field and it does not handle multilang format. Some plugins have mail templates as part of language files, eliminating this issue altogether (they can be edited in the local language files).

    Are there any plans to make this compatible with Moodle 3.6x or 3.7x?

    Hello Flotter,

    As stated in the above thread that "Admin approves enrollment application (or cancels it)" I have a usecase where in my organization there are is a reporting manager for each user mapped in LDAP how can I have them mapped direcly in moodle so instead of admin the manager approves their enrollment request.
