    Great plugin. I use it this year for the first time to book 115 workshops in 2 weeks. It is helpfull already. And only halfway. ;)

    Klaris asks to set the booking events to be displayed in the event order as default. I opt for that one too. Reverse order is confusing.

    Another tiny thing I would consider you to add is a standard date of bookings and a standard course. Also a standard setting to add to calendar would be great.

    When a "choose a course" is not filled there is an error. When going back to that course it is empty. A pity whem your description was lengthy...

    Well, that where my request.

    Back to fill in the bookings. ;)

    Oh another request come to mind.

    Something like in the feedback plugin. They have an option "save as new question".
    In this case it would be "save as new booking".

    Dear David,

    I am testing Booking for 2.7.7 and seem to have a bug. Although I set the 'max current booking per user' to two, the student is able to make more than two selections. Do you know if this is a bug?

    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 ( 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.

    Yes David. I have accepted meeting invite from ics file (Meeting Invite Mail sent from outside of our domain). It works fine. But as a organizer if i send meeting request via Moodle's Booking Plugin. It doesn't appear in my outlook calender.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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
