    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

    Hi Guys,

    For the benefit of those reaching this thread in the future:

    The moodle version 2.8 we were using had been progressively upgraded from a version well before moodle v2.5

    It seems that from moodle 2.6 onwards all the cron tasks can be managed from within the moodle and when the server runs the cron job, previously, where a task failed, it would stop all remaining cron tasks from being performed, whereas now that isn't the case. Trouble is that the server logs say that cron has been completed successfully, but it doesn't report if any of the individual tasks failed to run.

    When we looked at the cron task in moodle, the legacy cron task wasn't running, and this seems to have been the key issue.

    We also found that the table local_reminders, required by the 'Event_Reminders' plugin wasn't present. I'm not convinced that was the case though as I had checked the tables the day before. (and event reminders had been working correctly in this moodle before it was upgraded)


    Anyhow, we got 'event reminders' running so I can confirm that it does in fact work in moodle version 2.8

    Does reminders work with Moodle 2.9.1+ ??

    @Karl
    I am currently doing some tests on the plugin to make it work for Moodle 2.9.

    Please let me know when your testing is finished. I like the idea and would love to implement it in my 2.9.1 site.
