## Activities: Facetoface

mod_facetoface
Maintained by Stacey Walker
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.

Hi Stacey,

We would like to use facetoface but we are using Moodle 2.8.1 and there are errors during the installation. So I am wandering if/when you are planning to update the plugin? We would really appreciate it.

Hello Stacy,
I'm having an issue with F to F events not appearing on the Calendar. It appears to be random. I'm using a course for students to sign up for a series of in-person sessions. I have 29 F to F instances, each with 3 sessions to choose from. (overload maybe?)

The Calendar display settings for each instance is set for “Course”, so all available sessions show on the Calendar in (Orange), and Sessions that the student “signed-up” for are in (Blue) (viewing as a student). However, not every session that is signed-up for is showing up on the Calendar. The orange, available sessions are there but the blue (signed up for) are inconsistent. In admin view, I can see that the student is signed up - in the respective session's “attendees” list but “some” of the event’s they are signed up for are not appearing.

The settings are identical in all instances. I really need to get this ironed out, do you have any idea why this is happening? Anywhere within the moodle I can look to determine the cause?
Thanks!

In the light of Mikhail's comments: any indication if this is stable with 2.8+

I've just tried it with Moodle 2.8.2+ 20150123

It gives me an error message
Error: Required Moodle version 2014111003

Never seen this before. It seems to be wrongly reporting the Moodle version.

I've just tried to follow the integration steps on the following page:

https://docs.moodle.org/26/en/Integrating_Face-to-face_sessions_on_the_course_page

Unfortunately the course/lib.php is so different these days that the references as to where to insert the code don't exist anymore.

I am trying to integrate it with Moodle 2.6.10.

Any guidance you might be able to provide would be most appreciated.

Best regards,

Michael

Just noticed that the documentation for Moodle 2.5 at https://docs.moodle.org/25/en/Integrating_Face-to-face_sessions_on_the_course_page has important extra information that is missing from the version for Moodle 2.6, 2.7 and 2.8. Looks to me like the documentation for Moodle after v2.5 was not copied from the correct source or the Moodle 2.5 documentation was updated after it was copied for subsequent versions.

Strange thing is that this integration information isn't included in the README.txt installation instructions.

Could someone please update the integration document so that it works in each version of Moodle?

Best regards,

Michael

For anyone who sees errors in the course page after adding a Face-To-Face module, you will need to add a global $CFG in front of the following line: include_once($CFG->dirroot.'/mod/facetoface/lib.php');

That should not only get rid of the error message but actually make it work if your Moodle installation is anywhere but in the root of your webserver.

Stacey, can you please make sure that this gets added to the updated integration instructions as well?

Best regards,

Hi Stacey (or anyone else who can help).

We are having a small issue with the Facetoface plug in and would like to reach out to you for help.

It appears that a custom field we created isn't getting translated when we switch from English to French.

Any help with this would be really appreciated.

Thank you!

Just installed the 2.8 version on Moodle 2.8 and when I tried to add an event I got
Fatal error: Call to undefined function facetoface_instance_created() in "mod/facetoface/classes/observer.php on line 80"
Sounds like it is happening a lot.
Any ideas?
Need it up and running last week and still can't get it to work.

Help!

Hi all,

As you may be aware this plugin is sometimes supported and sometimes not. There are a few reasons for this and I am trying to rectify some of those as I go through things and sorry for the delays.

One problem that the community of users can help me with is the way in which issues are being reported. At the moment there are many different threads being opened - here, in the plugin directory feedback, github, private messages to me etc - sometimes reporting the same issue or something that might be resolved within a different version. This means that it is difficult to track the exact issues and clearly identify where and when things should be corrected and to let the community know of updated code.

I have switched off bug reporting on the github directory itself in the hopes that the Moodle Tracker itself becomes the only place for issues to be reported. I'd like to also build a roadmap for coming versions and feature improvements so having all the issues in one place will really help this plan moving forward. There have been, since I took over maintenance, a few things I'd like to add and alter but first I need to get the current code into a consistent state.

If you experience a issue please first check the tracker to see if there is an item already reporting this which you can add to and/or vote on and if not then please create a new one. The forums and plugin comments should ideally be used only for questions regarding general support such as configuration questions, suggestions for features and their related discussions and general use or feedback of the module. I will not be able to support bugs reported in these locations.

In the meantime, thank you for your patience,

Stacey
