    Hi Axel,

    Thanks for your feedback. That is something that I'd like to see indeed. Although we are committed to keep supporting this plugin for supported and upcoming Moodle versions, we have at the moment no plans to further add features to this plugin.

    However, this would be relatively easy to implement. If you have anybody at your end willing to add the required code additions, I'd be happy to include it in the next release.

    Strongly an update because version 39 does not seem to work in moodle 10.
    Thank you for your investment

    I can't install it on the course page, it always shows an exclamation mark in the name field.

    Hi kazi, and hi Alex,

    I've just tested the plugin on Moodle 3.10, and initial full testing show no issues ... can you please be more specific, or open an issue on the bug tracker so that we can discuss it more extensively?

    Hi Nicolas,

    I can no longer instantiate a group choice activity in 3.10+. When I save the settings, nothing happens and I stay on the settings page.
    Likewise, changes to the settings for activities carried out with version 3.9 do not apply.

    The choice of theme may be the source of the problem.
    The plugin seems to work well with the classic moodle theme !

    Thanks for reporting back Kazi! If you want to investigate it further, please open an issue in the bug tracker.

    Is there a way to limit the number of choice possible per student ?
    for instance students have to choose 3 course amongst 11 available. If i set allow user to enrol in several groups, he can potentially select all the groups.
    Thank you

    We have a Moodle 3.3 instalation with the módule choicegroup version 1.19 for Moodle 2.7-3.8 (Build: 2020052500). Now we are going tu upgrade to Moodle 3.5 (PHP 7.1) and after that to Moodle 3.9 (PHP 7.2)
    What versións of this módule should we install to get a correct upgrade? The 1.19 for Moodle 2.7-3.9 (Build: 2020052500) (2020052500) version or the 1.31 for Moodle 3.5-3.11 (Build: 2021060200) (2021060200) versión.

    Hi, a client asks whether students might receive an email confirmation of their choice immediately after choosing a particular group,Can you think of any way to do this, maybe through an event trigger in Moodle? Where would I start looking for a solution?

    @Olivier Dechepy, this is not presently possible.

    @Oscar Martinez, as a rule, always update to the most recent version of the plugin that supports your Moodle version. When updating to Moodle 3.5, select the newest version that supports Moodle 3.5 (and then same for Moodle 3.9). This would anyeway in both cases still be the latest plugin version, as it still supports Moodle 3.5 (and 3.9).

    @Peter Schmitz, this would be an additional feature. Feel free to document this in the bug tracker (link above), where we can discuss the details of this.

    Hi @Nicolas Dunard, thank you for a very useful plugin! Is there an upper limit to how many students can selfregister into one group?
    @Peter Schmitz, have you tried "The Augmented Teacher"?

    Hello @Mette Søgaard,
    Yes you can use the "Limit the number of responses allowed" setting in the activity parameters.
