    Hi,
    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 [https://github.com/jojoob]).
    Keep in touch.

    Any progress on a version that will work with 2.8? Would you be able to fix the issue that prevents the plugin working with 2.8 then add the ability to switch course specific settings?

    As Isuru mentioned, I forked the plugin on GitHub to add course specific settings. In mean time I also added support for Moodle 2.8.
    Checkout the latest development version working with 2.8 and course specific settings: https://github.com/jojoob/moodle-reminders-for-calendar-events/tree/develop

    The changes made to work with 2.8 are not compatible to 2.7. If you use Moodle 2.7 and wan't the course specific settings use this branch: https://github.com/jojoob/moodle-reminders-for-calendar-events/tree/develop_moodle_27

    Looking forward my pull requests will be merged.

    We are just getting started with moodle and needed a method of reminding students of upcoming events. This looks like it will meet this need. We would like to send a reminder 14 days before the event. Can this plugin be modified to add this as a choice along with the reminder choices?

    Hello ,
    I am using this plugin in Moodle 2.8.5 (Build: 20150310) . I am receiving notifications for assignment due date but for upcoming assignments, events are not showing in calendar and email function is also not working. Can you please suggest a way how it works.

    Hi,

    I'm using this plugin on Moodle 2.6.2+ (sorry, not sure of plugin version). It works great, except that in the messaging history, the reminders are appearing showing all of the HTML tags. Is there a setting for messaging, a filter or something else I need to change to enable these to display properly? Thank you.

    We've just upgraded to Moodle 2.8.7 (Build: 20150706)

    And have installed Event Reminders version 2015031201

    Having setup the reminder scheduling for course activities and created assignments in a visible course, no reminders have been emailed. Our default recipients are set to teachers and students.

    Maybe we've missed something really simple.

    Does anyone else have the latest reminders plugin working on moodle 2.8

    Cheers

    Hi Peter,

    Our reminders are working and going out as expected. However, I did notice that a reminder gets sent to the whole class when a single users is given an override extension on a quiz. I will be filing a bug for this one.

    Thanks Mathieu,

    I have a clean installed version of moodle2.7 with release 1.4 of the reminders plugin. That works OK.

    But on a version of moodle 2.8, that has been upgraded in stages from moodle 2.5 and now has reminders plugin 1.4.1 the reminders are not being sent. When I look at the scheduled task, all cron's appear to be working, apart from the \core\task\legacy_plugin_cron_task. Does anyone know if that cron is used by the event reminders plugin?

    Cheers
