This plugin is based on the core enrolment cohort.
Within this plugin we add a course greeting to the plugin similar to the self enrol plugin.
For documentation of the core enrolment cohort functions look here: http://docs.moodle.org/en/Cohort_sync

There is although a tracker entry to improve the cohort core module with this function: https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-38695

To install elediacohortgreeting just copy the folder "elediacohortgreeting" into your moodle/enrol/elediacohortgreeting.
After that you have to go to http://your-moodle/admin (Site administration -> Notifications) to trigger the installation process.

The greeting text can be configured in each enrol instance of this plugin.
So you can have multiple instances with differnent greetings for differnent groups in each course.

    Hello, Is it possible to send a picture in the email. I would like to send a footer in the email with our company logo. Is it also possible to change the font of the text, and the color? Can i do this in de Course greeting text, or in the database?

    Well at the moment the Plugin uses a simple text field for the email Text. What you ask for would need an editor field which would allow you to use HTML format and even insert pictures. Nice idea for a future version but not supported now.

    Thanx Benjamin for the answer. What you subscribe is exact what i want. The plugin of Moodle Welcome has a HTML format editor.

    Hello, i updated the moodle site to version 3.1. I get know the next error: The following plugins in your system are using Events 1 API deprecated handlers: 'enrol_elediacohortgreeting'. Please, update them to use Events 2 API. See https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Event_2#Event_dispatching_and_observers. How can i fix this issue?

    We already are in testing phase for a 3.1 Version of the Plugin. It will be rebased on the 3.1 cohort core enrolment. We will upload this as soon as the tests are through.

    Hello Benjamin, thanks for the plugin. The installation worked perfectly, but in the list of external extensions I appear disabled and I do not know how to enable the extension. Do you know how it can be done? Thank you very much.

    Hi, in website-administration / plugins / enrolments / manage enrolments you find a table of the enrolment plugins and settings. There you have the option 'enable' within the table. The button is an eye symbol (activiated) or an eye crossed with a line(deactivated). You can activate/deactivate it by click on the eye symbol.

    Many thanks, Benjamin. I could do it and it works perfect. It would be ideal that in future versions the message can be edited in HTML.

    Excellent work. Regards!

    Does this work in Moodle 3.3?

    We did not test it yet for 3.3. You can test it on your own or wait for new version. We will take a look at it in the middle of the next month.
