This module allows students or teachers to start two-way dialogues with another person. Although the official line is that this functionality has been replaced by the Messaging system, some users still find it useful as it will be an actual activity in your course.

    Hi Troy,
    Have you got any plans to update the Dialogue module to be compatible with Moodle 2.8? Many thanks, Christoph

    Hi Troy, there doesn't appear to paging support in the people picker. I have created an issue in the tracker: https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/CONTRIB-5489

    Thank you, this is awesome plugin! But I can't see Legacy option in Settings. It's Moodle 2.8.1 stable. And, can I set the Dialogue so that students cannot write messages student-student, but only student-teacher and teacher-student?

    I would like to request a feature that should be fairly simple to implement. I want to have the option to add a new participant to an existing conversation, and I want the option to leave an existing conversation. If I leave a conversation, I want all my messages to remain visible in the conversation. I've discovered that the code already supports these features if I manually add, update, or remove a row in the dialogue_participants database table.

    Hi Troy. Many thanks for providing this plugin to the community; its functionality is really appreciated by our staff and students, and we’re really grateful to you for your efforts to maintain and update it.

    On that note, please could I quickly query whether you have any plans to update the plugin to be fully compatible with Moodle v3.1, and its new Global Search feature in particular? To clarify: while we’ve tested the Dialogue plugin under v3.1 and all of the core functionality seems to work fine, we’ve found that instances of the activity are not searchable via v3.1’s Global Search feature. Please see the following screenshot for details, which lists all of the available areas that can searched under v3.1 (note that these settings are available via: Site Administration -> Plugins -> Search -> Manage Global Search):

    Note also that the above screenshot was taken on a v3.1 system where the Dialogue plugin is installed and available. However, as you can see, the Dialogue activity is not listed as being available to be searched. Obviously, this is likely to be a significant problem/cause of confusion for users who might want to search for specific instances of the Dialogue activity across Moodle.

    I’m not a developer, but my understanding is that mod plugins can be made searchable relatively easily via the addition of a new search class within the plugin’s codebase (located at ../classes/search/activity.php). Please see the following for further details:

    https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=334938
    https://docs.moodle.org/31/en/Global_search
    https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Search_API

    We really hope this search capability can be added to Dialogue as I’m sure it would be a huge benefit to our users (as well as those of other v3.1 systems) and, again, many thanks for all your efforts to develop this plugin and share it with the community.

    Best wishes,
    Lina
