    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.

    Hello Roberto,
    thank you for a great plugin, we use it at our department to enrol students for measurements in practice.

    I'd like to ask about a possible improvement. If it is mandatory to fill in a note when requesting a reservation, whether it would be possible:
    - offer instead of a manual note a selection of values from the combo box;
    - analogous to the previous one, only the already selected value from the combo box would not be offered in the list during the current reservation; if the student checked out of the reservation, the option would be available to others again (we would like to simulate the already selected tasks).

    Thank you!
    All the best

    Hello Zdenek,
    your requests sound to me like things that you can do with Choice activity.
    If you need both (Reservation and Choice) features you can connect them using completion and conditional activities.

    Great plugin! I might be missing something, but is the intention of the 'Teachers' field so that a reservation can be created for a teacher of the course? I have both editing and non-editing teachers in the course, but nothing appears in that field, and it can't be manually edited either. Hoping somebody can help with this as it would make things easier on our teaching staff.

    Many thanks

    Hello Paul,
    the 'Teachers' field show all enrolled users with 'mod/reservation:addinstance' or 'moodle/course:viewhiddenactivities' capabilities.
    Usually editing teacher has these capabilities.
    Please check them in Site administration -> Users -> Permissions -> Define roles

    Hi Roberto and thank you for your plugin, it's look great.
    I am testing it and have 2 questions:

    1. Is there a report to get the list of all the reservations whatever the course? I did not find the associated page. Does it have anything to do with publiclists ?

    2. I would like to allow to download a Sign-In Sheet with information about the booking (code, facilitator ...). I can see that I can already do a lot with the PDF but the booking information is missing.

    Best regards

    Hi Francois,
    1. Yes, you can access to it through the Activities Block. Publiclists disable user login check for that page, so do not select it if you don't need. Be careful.
    2. Download formats for tables are managed by Moodle library so I can't change them. If you download Open document or Excel they could easily modified.
    Administrators can enable several userfields to be shown in reservation lists.

    before something custom is created, is it possible to use the api/external service to retrieve a users reservations?

    Hello Brian,
    I'll work on several external services for the new release.
    These services will developed to work with Moodle App but I think you can use them for other purposes.
    I don't know when I could release a stable version. I work on it in spare time.

    You can check on github for lastest commit in ft-mobilesupport branch

    volevo aggiornare Moodle all'ultima versione, ma vedo che il plugin supporta solo fino alla 3.9, quando è previsto un aggiornamento del plugin che supporti la 3.10 o anche la 3.11?

    Buongiorno Paola,
    anche se non dichiarato il plugin funziona sia su Moodle 3.10 e 3.11.

    I have to be doing something wrong. We installed this plugin on our 3.11 system. Almost everything is working as expected. I am have an issue with the grades. I cannot figure out how to add a grade to the learner. Looking at the screenshot there is a column for the grade. I don't have that one on my system. Is there any documentation on how to configure the plugin for the grades? Thanks

    Hello Scott,
    if you set the grading in reservatio settings, as for other plugins, the grading column will be shown after the event date.
    No other settings are needed.
