    Ciao Roberto,
    ho installato il modulo sulla versione 2.5 e sembra funzionare.
    Prima di passare alla piattaforma in produzione, volevo chiederti se avevi già fatto delle prove per questa versionedi moodle ed eventualmente riscontrato dei problemi.

    There is a little issue with this plugin: when it sends e-mails to teachers, then the sender is Moodle administrator (lib.php line 375).
    This is a bit confusing as the admin comes from get_admin() function -- witch is the first admin and may not be connected to the reservations at all.
    Users may also reply to this administrator e-mail, witch is not good.

    I suggest to make the sender to teachers the "noreplay" aadress -- seems much more logical.

    lib.php line 375:

    if (! email_to_user($teacher, get_admin(), $postsubject, $posttext, $posthtml)) {
    -> if (! email_to_user($teacher, $CFG->noreplyaddress, $postsubject, $posttext, $posthtml)) {

    Hi, first of all great plugin, easy to use.

    Quick question though - I need to create a lot of events with registration that will occur week after week and I am searching for the 'Repeated events' function from standard Calendar events - I can't seem to find it.

    Is it possible to make 'repeating reservation events'?

    Hi Roberto,

    I am wondering if there was a way to restrict the cancelling of the reservation if a teacher were to manually put a student in there. In other words, I don't want a student to cancel and teacher assigned reservation. Any ideas?

    Roberto and community, I have a problelma in the app (Versão 2.7).
    My students make the Reservation, however the next day without my having given a time ok these are lost by chance something has already been reported in the same way? How to fix this problem because today the teacher will approve the date that the student will comparer, but the student can Reservation for future dates

    Where to find the upload functionality of this plugin? I have a comma separated .csv with 34 users, who already are in the system, and want to upload them.
    Another question is: how to add users manually?
    I search for such plugin since couple of months, and if the above mentioned questions are possible, it will fit me perfectly.

    @Roberto The icon of the plugin, which appears on the list of courses under "content" is too big. I am using Moodle 2.8

    Hi Stephan,
    there isn't a way to upload users into reservations.
    The upload features enable administrators to upload a list of reservations in order to bulk create several reservation instances sitewide.

    Manual reservation can be done, during reservation time, from the Management tab. You can see a dropdown menu with user list. Just choose a user and click Reserve button. Latest release support separate groups in manual reservation.

    I designed a new icon with the right size.

    Thanks for supporting this plugin.

    Hi Roberto,
    My aim is to extend the plugin, or just make one from scratch (if the extending is to complicated), with the option to upload users via .csv for each reservation (possible only for the managers/admins), or to add user manually from list.
    I have struggled to find the right way to upload users in face-to-face plugin. I know it will take place in mod/reservation/view.php with the filepicker form, but how to build the communication with the module afterwards? I am ready to share my work and contribute, if you have some advice for the right direction of developing.

    Really like this plugin except I'm getting an error when I select all users and try to delete them from the reservation.

    "Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: PHP catchable fatal error"

    One user will be deleted but the rest won't. I have to go through the delete process for every user which is time consuming.

    Thank you so much for making the floating button an option! That was really important to us, as is your work in general. And thank you for makinmg your professional work available for free. That is not taken for granted.

    Hi Roberto, I am getting a "syntax not supported error" trying to install in Moodle 3.0. Hope this really important module will be available for 3.0. Thanks for your work!

    Michael, I've tried to delete all reservations and it seems to works. I'm test on the last release on github.
    Sven, latest release on github already supports Moodle 3.0. I'll post new release on today.
