    Hi Richard,
    It seems a web server performance problem.
    You need to enable moodle debugging and take a look to error log.
    Then you can try to add a reservation and check any error message.

    Hi Roberto,
    thank you for this plugin. Just a question: is it possible to split reservation into sub-groups? For example I can fix 100 as a maximum number of reservation, but I'd like students should be organized into little groups of 4.
    Thank you in advance.

    Hi Filippo,
    sorry but you can't do it with reservation plugin.
    I think you can use something like choice group

    Hi Roberto,
    Two questions. Whenever one books a reservation he can have the option to leave a note, can the wording "Note" be changed or at least by default in the box I leave some wording for hint ? Second question, is it possible to download the list of those who are booked on a specific date?

    Hi Roberto,

    What is the possibility that once a student books a reservation he receives an acknowledgement that he has been accepted for the booking (confirmation)? Our students find your plugin very useful and with this confirmation they can then apply for the necessary study leave to attend for a session.

    Maybe an external trigger plugin that is auto triggered to send an email to student when he books?? or even better (you being good at this) include in your plugin an email receipt on booking??

    Thanks for the continuous support

    Very Very sad, we still have Moodle version 3.1 and installation is asking for at least ver 3.4
    Have to wait for an upgrade before can use it then.

    Estimado Roberto, acabo de instalar el Módulo. Te felicito por tu trabajo. Necesitamos una actualización a la última versión de moodle ya que no apare el botón para ver las reservas y tampoco la posibilidad de que otros alumnos puedan ver las reservas de los demás y guardar su reserva particular. Muchas gracias

    Hello Isamael,
    I'm working on some issues and new features so I need to close them before publish a new release here.
    You can get the last fix release on github. It seems to work on Moodle 3.8.

    Hi Roberto,
    I'm so busy in this time but I will work on Reservation in the second half of July.
    I made a simple test with the current release on Moodle 3.9 and it seem to works.

    Is it possible to have the events created be visible across the whole site? During all my testing all I can get is for it to show up in the Course only. What am I missing?

    Hi Stephen,
    I'm sorry but we can't create site events.
    Reservations, as any activities, are related to a course so teacher capabilities permit to create only course and user events.
