Moodle 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5

The latest version is available for Moodle 3.3 and 3.4, but support for future versions needs funding. There are a lot of necessary tasks to be accomplished in order to keep the module working and up to date.

ATTENTION:

Version for Moodle 3.5 is not yet funded. If you need GDPR compliant plugins, consider funding the version for Moodle 3.5. Consider a yearly support contract, if you rely on this module. Contact me at info (at) edulabs.org for further information.

    Hi David, I just upgraded to the latest Booking release. One of my teacher noticed that the .csv export no longer shows the student username. Is there a way to get it back? We use the student ID number for username and teachers use that to look up students in our school information system. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Dirk, I ran into the same issue as I was using CSV UTF-8 instead of CSV, double check you are using CSV (Comma delimited). Also I ran into some issue regarding the Date parse format, for clarification for anyone else who got stuck the default setting is j.n.Y H:i:s which translates to "30.04.2018 14:00:00" (excluding the " ").

    Hi David, I am looking for a place in the code where a booking becomes closed in order to run another plugin at that point. I found some code in your all_options.php within the function called col_maxanswers however when doing a search to find where col_maxanswers is called from. The result turned up empty. Could you please help me with regards to where your piece of code is that closes the booking?

    Hi David, I'm running Moodle 3.3 and automatic emails sent after booking a session have lately ceased functionning. Emails are however correctly sent to users when clicking on "Send reminder" or throughout the moodle website. Any idea what could be causing a problem specifically with automatic emails ?
    Thanks a lot for your answer.

    @Clement Herr. Have a look at your cronjob, if it is running correctly. /admin/cron.php
    Kind regards,

    Note to others: If you are using Moodle 3.4 or later, do not install this plugin until it has been updated to support Moodle 3.4+. I installed the plugin and it didn't really work (added nothing to the calendar). There were other issues too. Uninstalling it was also very problematic, displaying many errors with debugging set to developer mode. Looking forward to seeing support for this plugin in Moodle 3.5 in the future.

    @Michael Milette: could you please post the issues at https://github.com/dasistwas/moodle-mod_booking/issues as described in the description of the latest release. Comments like this are really not helpful and I can not reproduce your statements. If you really want to help, than please do this in a proper way. Thank you. Maybe you do not have a compatible system....

    Hi David,
    Can a custom field be populated via the csv import?

    Hi Rob, if you mean the fields that can be configured in the site administration. Then these can not be imported. Kind regards, David

    Hi David,
    I am looking into e-mail notifications and posted an issue on your Github.
    I also had a question because I'm not sure if this was a feature : are notification e-mails sent (with icalendar attachment) to users if the date of an existing booking option is changed ?
    Thanks again

    Hi, Clement Herr. I fixed the issue posted on github. There is no feature for e-mail notifications when a booking option date was changed. But you can always contract me if you want to add that feature. Kind regards, David
