    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.

    Dear contributor,
    We've had a serious error with the new version 3.0 of this plugin:
    We are using Moodle 2.8.7, we can use the version 2.7 of reservation plugin without any problems.
    But after we upgraded to the new version this Monday, every time we creating the reservation in Moodle, there will be an error message: Fatal error: Call to underfined method mod_reservation_mod_form::standard_intro_elements() in /var/www/html/moodle/mod/reservation/mod_form.php on line 32

    Would you please help to check this?
    Thanks a lot.
    Best wishes,

    Sorry that's my fault.
    Reservation 3.0 must require Moodle 2.9.
    I try to update 2.7 release to solve this problem.
    Please download last 2.7 module release.

    I've got a situation where we have students that we know are registered and in a reservation; but, as an admin, when I go to the reservation page to manage the list and perhaps even cancel some reservations, there are no students listed. I had emptied my cookies the other day, and I had also changed the reservation end date of the activity, a few days after the reservation window had closed. Since then, I can't seem to see the reservation list, and even when I reserved a spot, the counter on the page still says 0/20. I can't even see myself on the list after I made my own reservation. I can see the students when I run my daily query against the database, and the output shows me all reservations NOT cancelled. They are there. The other reservation activity that we set up has 19 students in it, and I can see and manage that list no problem. CAn you suggest what could be causing this behavior??
