    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.

    HI Roberto,

    have Moodle version 3.9.1+ (Build: 20200730). The plugin version I have is 2019031908.

    It works but cannot delete a reservation. Has this been fixed with the version I have?

    Hi Roberto: I work for a nonprofit. We are setting up a tutoring program with hundreds of volunteer tutors. I would like to ask if we can have it so that the tutors (non editing teachers) can declare/open their own availability but do not have to see all of the other appointments? For the students, they just need to see the opening slots and the name of the tutor. For the admin, it would be best to see all opening and assign a zoom room to it (zoom is a shared resource and two meetings cannot be taking place at the same time using the same zoom account). Thank you very much.

    I'm sorry but I think you can't manage it with Moodle and Reservation plugin.
    Tutors can't create reservations because they can't modify the course.
    If you enable course editing for Tutors, modifying capabilities, they can change any reservation of all tutors.
    Probably you need something else to do that work.

    Hi Roberto:
    Thanks for your quick answer. If you can think of some other plugins that would do this, please let me know.
