Your Moodle version

Activities: Booking

Maintained by it's me David Bogner, Picture of Andraž P. Andraž P.
The module is perfect for managing participants and subscription of online and offline courses and events.
Moodle 2.5, 2.6, 2.7

Attention: This plugin needs funding, otherwise it will be discontinued. The latest version is available for Moodle 3.1, but this will be the last supported Moodle version (if no funding is provided). There are a lot of necessary updates, that need funding in order to keep the  plugin working with future versions. Some of these tasks are

  • PostgreSQL and MSSQL Support is missing
  • Implement automated testing
  • New tagging API is not supported
  • Upgrade from custom availability to Moodle availability API has to be done
  • Replace YUI Javascript framework with JQUERY framework (YUI is not developped anymore)
  • Provide documentation (only a part of the features are documented)
  • Language optimization (German language support will be dropped )
  • Additional features
This is a powerful booking tool, that provides a lot of features. It is perfect managing course bookings, or bookings of events, that are not associated with a moodle course. Some of the features are:
  • Max participants
  • Waitinglist
  • Automatic course subscription
  • Confirmation mail
  • Download userlist as xls or ods
  • Cancellation system
  • Subscription period
  • Accept terms and conditions
  • Custom messages
  • Bulk subscription management
  • and a lot more.

    Hi All,
    Is there a way to add report fields such as 'user profile fields' from existing categories such as "Additional names" or "Optional" categories?.
    I know there is an option to include fields from "Additional fields" category, but is there another way to include fields from other categories such as those i have mentuioned above?

    Good afternoon, I am using Eva Thörnblad 1.9 (2016090901) and I cant find a way to delete a Booking option. I created a booking slot, I have had to cancel it due to staff illness but the only way I can work out to "remove" it is by changing the date to the past and removing all the text within it. It sill still there in the background however but a Blank / Null booking option. And ideas?

    Hi All,
    What are the new features on the latest 2016091600? I have installed the latest version but everything still looks the same.
    I would also like to know if there is a way to add Optional fields such as Yahoo ID, Skype ID etc in to the Bookings report?

    Hi All,
    was testing and everything worked fine. suddenly if a user tries to book process seems ok but booking is never actually booked, he returns to the booking page with no bookings booked yet. Any solution?

    My institution really likes the Booking module. We are currently using Eva Thörnblad 2.0 (2016091600). We are seeing an error when using the "Export data table as" function. I would appreciate any help in solving the issue. The stack trace is below:

    Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: Output can not be buffered before instantiating table_dataformat_export_format

    More information about this error
    Debug info:
    Error code: codingerror
    Stack trace:

    line 1708 of /lib/tablelib.php: coding_exception thrown
    line 181 of /lib/tablelib.php: call to table_dataformat_export_format->__construct()

    @Rob Johnson: Which moodle version do you use? How many booked users do you have? I can not reproduce this on my servers. Maybe this is a core moodle bug related to or the configuration of your server is not yet perfect.

    @Aaron Cauchi: I have never seen that. Without detailed information or access to your Moodle instance I won't be able to help you.

    Hi David, plugin is fantastic until it stopped putting bookings. Unfortunately the moodle version we are using is Moodle 2.5+ (Build: 20130530) with PHP Version 5.3.5. The only details I can tell you is that i was using only three users to test it out. Worked fine, could book, have someone on standby and even replace. Mail notification of dropped booking was not working but that was trivial. Suddenly I changed (for testing purpose) the name of the booking title page and bookings were not being accepted, no error page, just after you try to book a slot, it asks if you want to confirm, you confirm and it then takes you to the booking page again. Now there should be one booking less but it shows the same bookings, thus, no bookings where accepted. Hope it makes sense the way am explaining.

    @Aaron Cauchi: I would recommend to upgrade to PHP 5.6 and Moodle 2.7 minimum. We do not support Moodle 2.5 since years, nor do we have a PHP 5.3 testing environment.

    @Anup Srivinas: This problem has nothing to do with the booking module. Please refer to the quiz module or report a general bug in Moodle. None of the lines in debug output is a booking module code.

    Hi David,

    Thanks for adding the Delete option.

    I dont understand the tagging issue you are talking about though. What i wanted to know is if there is a way to add more fields on the Booking report, except for the fields that are from the "Additional Fields" category? I am specifically interested in the user profile fields the under the "Optional" category. e.g. Skype ID, Yahoo ID etc.
    Or maybe there is a way to add these fields using Tags?
