    Hi Benn,

    I have also found an issue with the calendar function of the booking plugin. When setting the dates, students are preventing from accessing the booking.

    I know this is always a hard one, but just wondering if there are any timescale for 2.8, we like booking and have been migrating those using Face-to-face (https://moodle.org/plugins/view/mod_facetoface) to Booking as in most cases it fits with bill and is easier to use and less problematic. We will moving to 2.8 in the next couple of months and I'm trying to plan which plugin will work and which wont.

    Hi All,
    We are currently using Moodle 2.7 with Booking plugin. The plugin works fine. But however, we have one issue with Event generation in Outlook calender for Event organizer.

    [1] Via SMTP server we send out a meeting invite (ics file)
    [2] Attendees receive it, Can do accept or decline
    [3] Organizer receives a response from attendees by email.
    [4] BUT the event does not appear in Event Organizer’s MS Outlook calendar.

    Can anyone help us in fixing the issue.

    Hi srikanth Kamatan,

    did you try accepting an event from other ics files? Just to be sure, that there is no problem with Outlook.

    Best,

    Thanks,

    Hi David,
    Is it possible to create an event in the calendar of the organizer with booking plugin?
    The intention is to know who has accepted/declined the events.
    Thanks,

    Hi David. Great work so far with your booking form however I am having issues with the plugin. Everything installed and setup fine. Booking options set, users selected dates and auto email upon booking sent fine however when the time arrives for users to receive a reminder email the whole system crashes. Unable to access the booking form at all. I am using Moodle 2.7.1. Any ideas anybody?

    Regards
    Dan

    Hi Dan,

    what database do you use. If you use PostgreSQL, that might be the problem. The tool was only tested on mySQL. What do you mean with "crash" and "whole system"? Any debug output would be useful. Also did you download the tool from here or from github. If you did use the github version, you may encounter issues, because these should not be used on production sites.

    Best,
    David

    Hi David,
    Thanks for the quick response. I am using mysql (5.5.42-cll) and the plugin was downloaded above as directed. With regards to the crash, the activity is visible within the course but when you click on it nothing loads. No text, no booking options, just a blank page. You can edit the booking however nothing appears. I have uninstalled and reinstalled twice before and I have noticed that it crashes when it is due to send a reminder notification email for one of the booking options.

    Thank again for the development so far.
    Regards
    Dan

    Strike that... I am not so sure it is the reminder email that is causing this anymore. When I last rebuilt it I left "days before reminder" blank however I have just checked it and it has crashed again. Even if I create a new booking activity they fail to respond. the only resolution is to uninstall, allow Moodle to remove the database tables and start again / revert from backup.

    Hi Dan,

    could you turn on debug mode for developers and post the results here or send it to me as message? You can enable that at your site with the following url: /admin/settings.php?section=debugging

    Hi David,

    Is there any documentation on the .csv file format for bulk uploads?

    Hi Abdul-Khliq,

    due to a lack of funding, we are not able to provide this at the moment.

    Best,

    Thank for replying David.

    I and other users would normally expect a description of a feature and an explanation of its usage to be included in the release notes. I'd suggest removing a feature you don't want to document, as it only raises hopes and expectations of potential adopters of the plugin, and diminishes the credibility current and future releases.

    Has anyone using this plugin worked out the format of the bulk upload .csv file?

    In all other aspects, it's a very useful plugin!

    Best wishes
    Abdul-Khaliq

    Hi Abdul-Khaliq,

    the problem is: Documentation is not funded, neither is the development of the tool right now. Even the removal of anything is not funded, but it is a lot of work. If you want to have a certain feature or additional documentation added or removed feel free to hire somebody to do that. Any programmer will be able to tell you how the csv file has to look. And anybody can update the documentation.

    Kind regards,
    David
