The reengagement plugin provides a way for you to remind students to return to the course and complete activities.

The email is sent a specified period of time after a starting event, which may be enrolment in the course, or completing an earlier activity.

If the user has already completed the target activity, no email is sent.

You can also use this plugin to selectively release timed content in a course.

This plugin is developed by the Moodle Partner Catalyst IT

    Thanks for this very useful plugin.

    Is there a way to make this work with groups?

    @ P H - there's a PR here that adds group support but we haven't had a chance to review it yet - feel free to test it and give feedback by adding a comment on the PR:

    Hi, I have M 3.10 would like to know, if latest version of reengagement works with 3.10 or when will it be updated?
    And: I did a lot in different forums but get no answers to: I have several courses with manual registration and courseenrolement. I want to Mail users, that a. never logged in and b. did not complete a certain activity. What is to be set exactly?
  • Fri, Feb 5, 2021, 10:02 AM
    Hi Rolf we're not aware of any issues with using it in 3.10 - the latest version of our plugins is always in the github repo and we don't regularly update the one stored in the plugins db.
    haven't had a chance to respond in the forums sorry, hopefully someone else gets a free moment to help!

    Any idea what causes "Exception - Class 'backup_reengagement_activity_task' not found?" A few months ago Moodle auto backup stopped working. I get this when I try to manually backup a course. Our ISP, that supports Moodle, said it's not them. Using Moodle 3.10.3, although this was happening on versions going back about 4-6 months. I'd hate to loose all our settings on 6 courses with an uninstall/reinstall. Thanks! Steve

    Is it possible to set a reengagement reminder based on the enrolment date? E.g. I want our students to receive a reengagement notification 2 weeks after their enrolment. I am adding this reminder to an existing course so for the students already enrolled to receive a reminder depending on when they were enrolled and not 2 weeks after setting this reminder.

    Because when I click on the engagement activity already configured, I can select the users from the list, and then I can select: reset completion date by enrolment creation date and the time I want, but there's no SAVE button.
    Thanks in advance!

    @Steve - that would suggest this file is missing from your installation or has the wrong permissions set:

    @Eleonore - this sounds like this issue:
    We haven't managed to look at this yet, but if you have internal development capabilities feel free to help us by investigating that further.


    @Eleonore - This is only supported for "new" enrolments - eg if you set up the re-engagment activity before anyone enrols in the course. For existing users the timer will start as soon as you add the re-engagment activity to the course.

    Hello! Is it compatible with version 3.8+ of Moodle? Because I set a 5 minute delay reminder (to test the plugin) but I never got the email. When I access the resource, it shows me the alert "This reclose is not available". Please, I need help or support.

  • Thu, Jul 8, 2021, 5:40 AM
    @Florencia - yes this plugin supports 3.8, however with the large number of plugins Catalyst develops and supports we don't always push the latest version into the plugins db. Please see our github repository for the latest versions and information in the readme file for which branches are the right one for your version.
    In terms of re-engagment support - the best place to star is here: - if that doesn't help, please create a post in the community forums or reach out privately if you would like commercial level support.

    Hi, I have quizzes that they are hidden from the students. Teachers "shows" the quizzes as they go along the course. I have setup this to remind the students to take the quiz once the quiz has been "shown" , but it sending emails when those quizzes are still hidden. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks !!

    Is it possible to insert the completion date of a student into the "Notification content (User)" email?
  • Mon, Jul 26, 2021, 12:41 PM
    @Mark - no that is not supported.
