    hi all!
    I'm using version 2.9.1, installed the Event Reminders, but did not send reminders about events or activities.I need to do some additional configuration or some other verification when it does not work?

    Hello Mathieu, we are having the same issue on version 2.9, can you please send me the bug report link so i can follow it, best regards!

    "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."

    Hi I'm using moodle 2.6.2 and tried to download and install version 1.4.2.

    I've tried to install onto moodle but it says 'Error' for the required moodle version. In the description of this version is says it should work on any Moodle version greater than or equal to v2.0. Is that an error ?

    Also version 1.3.1 is showing a warning for the maturity level. Can someone recommend the best version to use for moodle 2.6.2 or if their is another plugin that would work?

    I would really like to use this plugin, but I need a custom field to set my own reminder days. default settings are too short for me, I need months not days as I am providing live courses as well and so interested persons need some time to respond as well as buy tickets, hotels and such.

    Kind regards,
    Roebrt

    Hi Isuru,

    Firstly, thanks for developing this very necessary and useful plugin. I'm currently trying it out on a local machine and manually running cron. I'm running Moodle 2.9.1 on a Ubuntu Linux machine. I'll let you know how I get on smile

    Robert Sederberg: We went into the Plugin and adjusted to PHP to allow for sends with less time. (15 min and 1 hour reminders). In the lib.php you can see what the times are for DEFINE('REMINDERS_7DAYSBEFORE_INSECONDS', 7*24*3600); and for the other 2 segments. You can adjust this file to the amount of time (1 Day would be 3600 and that's it). So you can adjust based on the amount of time 30 days would look like 30*24*3600 -- 30 Days, 24 hours, 3600 seconds in an hour. Hopefully this makes sense.

    I am using Moodle 2.9.3+ and it works just fine. I even have made some modification suggested by Marc Mclain. Remember folks who make plugins such as Reminders are dong it for the good of all. One should be gentle when asking for help.

    okay, we managed to fix the group event reminder issue. it was a fix in the group_reminder.class.php. Works now

    When the event reminders go out to students, it says that the message is from me, 'Jason Touw'

    I am not the only teacher, and not the only site administrator!

    I want the email reminders to come from an address such as 'Network Administrator' or 'Moodle Administrator'

    Where/how in Moodle do I make that change so that the event reminders come from a generic address? I am running v3.0. Any suggestions?

    Thank you!!

    Hey Jason,
    It is easy to accomplish. Go to Site Administration > Plugins Overview > Local Plugins > Reminders > In the box for "Message Title Prefix" enter whatever address you want. This text will be inserted as a prefix (within square brackets) to the title of every reminder message is being sent. Just hit Save changes button at the bottom.
