    Hi Peter,

    I think the problem lies inside the group event part around line 295 /reminders/lib.php. When groupings are enabled first all groups needs to be fetched and then all people within this groups.

    Do you have any exception traces.

    Hi Mario, not sure I know what you're asking for. What do I need to do to make a fix?

    Great plugin that I'm using since mdl v 2.5.
    It worked fine with 2.6.
    But now it doesn't work with 2.7. It sends a notification every hours...
    So I had to deactivated it.
    Any plan to upgrade it for 2.7 ?

    I also have a problem with Moodle 2.7 where the reminder plugin has sent reminders every minute (cron set to 1min).

    1st time we experienced this we removed the event from the calendar. Problem stopped. Many reminders were then sent correctly for about a week and then the problem occurred again. This time we switched off reminders.

    We can find nothing in the server logs to indicate what might be causing this.

    We are using wiziq plugin, (the only other plugin installed) have groups and groupings set.

    Would like to work with others to resolve this problem.

    @2.7 you could try :
    This version should work with 2.6, 2.7 and greater..

    The 2.7part uses the new task system, new logging API and stores the cron cycle time into the module cron part.

    Does this plugin work fine with MSSQL server? If not then can you please suggest work around to solve this.

    Hi Guys. Does reminders trigger for activities set with restrict access to 'groupings' in moodle 2.7. I can't seem to get it to work.

    Hi Peter,

    I had some time to test groupings with "access restriction".
    So far our reminders are working as expected.
    Activities with grouping, access restriction and due date are handled correctly with:
    #285 $sendusers = groups_get_grouping_members($cm->groupingid);

    Hi. I'm having the same issue as many others where the reminders are sent out every hour (due to cron). Any thoughts on this? I'm using the most up-to-date versions of the plug in and Moodle. Thanks!

    Do you plan to develop this plugin for Moodle 2.7?
    Thank you.

    Forgive me for my delayed response here. I was in extremely busy for last year.

    I recently understood that logging API has deprecated since Moodle 2.7. That's why the notifications are flooding because reminders refer logs to decide whether to send again or not.

    I will soon fix this and release to the community.
    Thanks for all who reported me these issues.

    Currently I am working on a release for Moodle 2.8 with ability to switch course specific settings for reminders (thanks to Johannes Burk []).
    Keep in touch.
