    Can this be used with Moodle Vers 3.6.1?

    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.

    Hi, our business uses PDR forms to apply for approval any chance we can upload PDR forms to enrolment requests?

    Hello Flotter,

    Thank you for this great Plugin! I think that it would be very useful if the time that new enrol requests are allowed could be restricted. There is a setting that is "allow new course enrol requests". If this could be automatically set to "no" after an adjustable period of time, it would be awesome

    Hello Flotter,

    We have a latest version of the plugin installed on Moodle 3.5. The settings "Show standard user profile fields on enrolment screen" and "Show extra user profile fields on enrolment screen" are set to "No" through Site administration>Plugins>Enrolments>Course enrol confirmation, however, all those fields are still visible on the enrolment screen. Could you please look into it for us?

    Looking forward to your feedback.

    Thank you,

    I had the same issue. Took me a long time to figure this one out. The answer is that the settings you need to fix are in the course settings rather than site settings

    Go to course administration -> users -> enrolment methods -> signup. There you will see the same settings that you change to NO

    Hello, how are you?

    I am using the enrol_apply_moodle37_2019120400 plugin, and I would like your help on how to translate a form, as I have already looked at the .php /enrol/apply/manage.php and I cannot find the "postpone requests" function, I have analyzed the language file and I cannot find it. Is it possible to help me?
