Your Moodle version

Enrolment: AutoEnrol

Maintained by Picture of Mark Ward Mark Ward
Adds functionality to automatically enrol users onto a course, either as they log into your Moodle site or as they acess a course. This plugin is primarily intended for use on courses which you want all users to be able to access but can also be configured for more advanced purposes.
Moodle 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5

When added to a course this enrolment plugin can enrol users onto a course automatically, either as they log into your Moodle site or as they click on the course. It is intended for use on site-wide courses such as "Moodle Help" or "Learner Voice".

In addition the plugin has advanced functionality to support autmatically grouping and filtering users based upon their attributes. Depending on how your user accounts are set
up this may help you to give access to certain user groups.

Configuration of the plugin is managed by two permissions which allow administrators to easily control who has access to the plugin.

    This enrollment method definitely has potential. Have you considered enrollment by cohort only? Not to be confused with cohort sync, but that a user must be in a specified cohort before the autoenrol enrollment is "active".

    Does moodle have a plugin that imports all records from an Excel sheet and automatically Enrolls them for a particular Course creating their user ID and Password along with sending the users acknowledgement for the same. Creating a backup of the user IDs and password for the admin.
    Is there any plugin with this feature?

    I am currently using moodle 2.7 version. I am able to install the Auto Enroll plugin and ist working fine. I would also like to set the enrollment duration for the courses. I did not see the enrollment duration option in the same. Is there any way to add the enrollment duration also?

    I am currently using moodle 2.8.5 version. May i know how to filter users in moodle based on Stream(Branch)?

    For Example,
    We have 4 categories as mentioned below
    1. Computer Science
    2. Information Science
    3. Electrical & Electronics
    4. Electronics and Communication

    Here the student from Computer science stream should able to access only computer science contents and he should not able access other stream subjects. so, is there any method to filter the students based on stream wise during Student Registration process? (Manually stream field is provided in Registration form)

    I've tested this under Moodle 3.0.2 and there it's working. I found one problem: when this method is added to a course, there is no possibility to delete this method. You can only make it invisible. I'm wondering if the plugin is still actively maintained, and if yes, this problem could be solved.

    I was wondering if anyone knows how to un-enrol users after they have been auto enrolled. We're auto-enrolling users based on a custom user profile field.

    Thanks Jürg. Unfortunately that option is not on our LMS. Is there a setting that we need to enable? The "x" only appears for manual and self enrolments.

    Hi there, just wondering how I can remove auto enrol from a course? I've had it previously setup on a course for a while but now need to stop those users from access the course.

    Hello Mark,
    nice plugin, we are using it in our Moodle 3.0.2, and I am wondering is it possible to add custom profile field (with dropdown yes or no) to the group filter, that would be very important for our new instance. Thank you,

    Hi, your git repository does not fullfill the moodle standards, which means it is impossible to add the plugin into an existing moodle repository. version.php and all source files belonging to your plugin have to be in root of your git repository and not in a subdirectory like 'enrol/autoenrol'. If I want to use your git repo I had to clone it in the moodle root directory, which I can't since there is the moodle git repository. Also some files of your root directory are useless (like the xml files) or will change my settings (.gitignore). Can you please change your repository to the moodle standards ( ? Thx in advance!
