Activities: Facetoface

Maintained by Picture of Catalyst ITCatalyst IT, Picture of Dan MarsdenDan Marsden
Face-to-face activities are used to keep track of in-person (e.g. classroom) trainings which require advance booking. Each activity is offered in one or more identical sessions. These sessions can be given over multiple days. Reminder messages are sent to users and their managers a few days before the session is scheduled to start. Confirmation messages are sent when users sign-up for a session or cancel. This module may be of interest to administrators looking for a way to provide event management support for blended learning environments.

    @Ricardo - this might help:

    The most recent version of the facetoface block for Moodle I found was here:
    Doesn't look like it has been updated in a long time....

    I've found that by adding this plugin to a course, I can add participants who are not enrolled in this course.

    Is there any way to restrict participants to the scope of the course?

    @ricarcdo - better to ask for support in the forums: - you might get more people who will respond there.

    @ricardo--yes, it has always been like that. in the 1.9 (yes, 1.9--2013) version, a colleague fiddled with the code and required it to only list people enrolled, which was super nice...but we tried to avoid a lot of custom mods once we updated because custom mods mean a lot of work when you change versions. I just try to remember to check the participant list and manually add a role to the student when I manually add a registrant/booking.

    @Dan--there is a more up to date is good through 3.4? Stacey actually got the early bird award for the 3.4 version...that is now two dot versions behind but that's better than nothing.

    Thanks Melanie, yes it looks like we need to update the plugins db with the slightly newer code from github. I don't expect we'll get the 3.6 early bird award on this plugin - the existing code should work fine in 3.6 but for full support it needs to have the newer 3.6 privacy api class functions added and as we don't have any clients using this plugin planning to upgrade to 3.6 any time soon we might have to rely on a community patch to add the new api functions.

    how can we get csv file for all courses not a single course, in other words, can we have global reports across all courses using face to face?

    you might need to use a custom report plugin such as the customsql report to do this.

    how do i change the location for each session? i see the email has a token [session:location], however, i haven't been able to locate the field that dictates that. we are using this for sessions that have multiple different locations.

    Is there a way to mark or record the attendees that signed up for the session actually showed up? Most times students sign up on the website but aren't able to show up at the time of the session. It would be great if this plugin would let us take attendance too.

    Hello, a silly question - can you run two versions of the face-to-face plugin?
    We are in the process of upgrading our version of Moodle (3.1.5+ (Build: 20170316)) and the old face-to-face plugin (2.3.1+ (Build: 2014030600) 2017121800) runs well.
    Our new Moodle (3.5.5+ (Build: 20190322)) on UAT server has a few issues with a null parameter (timezone). I wouldnt mind running both for comparison. If not possible, no problem.
    Thank you!

    @Mata, Moodie does not allow you to install the same plugin more than once.

    I'm trying to use this plug-in via Moodle Mobile app, but it said it is not yet supported, and asked me to open the page in a browser. Is there a setting that the site administrator needs to set to allow this plug-in to work on Moodle Mobile app?
    Thank you.

    There are no settings to control this as the plugin does not support the mobile app. Adding support requires a developer to spend time adding support. Pull requests and or funding are always welcome.

    So...I haven't been here in several months but noticed the question about session:location--Christopher did not followup with a post, but I think that is a weird language pack thing--in the 1.X version, there were several fields (location, room, and something else...venue?) but for the 2.X and above versions dropped all the location fields and made it possible to add fields of your own but the scripting in the language packs was never updated to reflect that, so even though the fields don't exist, the default email text says they do...if you create your own fields, you have to modify the language pack text if you want those fields to appear in the emails. Might be something to consider updating...
