# Scheduler

Activities ::: mod_scheduler
Maintained by Henning Bostelmann
An appointment scheduler for planning face-to-face meetings between teachers and students. Teachers can set up time slots, and students can choose one of these on Moodle.
Latest release:
4903 sites
142 fans
Moodle 2.5, 2.6

The Scheduler module helps you in scheduling appointments with your students. Teachers specify time slots for meetings, students then choose one of them on Moodle. Teachers in turn can record the outcome of the meeting - and optionally a grade - within the scheduler.

Group scheduling is supported; that is, each time slot can accomodate several students, and optionally it is possible to schedule appointments for entire groups at the same time.

Please note that minor updates to this module will normally be released on github only.

For help and discussion about the module, including feature requests etc., please use the Scheduler forum on moodle.org or the bug tracker. Please don't use the comment section below for that, queries might go unanswered.

For an earlier version supporting Moodle up to release 1.9, see the Scheduler 1.9 module.

@Henning Bostelmann: Thanks for confirming that. We tried offering slots for students to book, but found better appointment coverage if teachers booked them in, so a confirmation email in that case would have been good for us. We'll just advise staff/students accordingly.

@Henning Bostelmann: Thank you for your work developing the scheduler. In the Scheduler setup Options: Mode, students can be limited to a specified number of appointments in this scheduler, up to 10. For our situation, "up to 12" would be ideal as it would match the number required in the semester. Is there an edit we can make to the plugin code that would change the upper limit in the drop down menu to 12?

I keep getting "Guests can't do anything here."
I'm on Moodle 3.8 with the latest Scheduler.

Hello and thank you for this great plugin. In this COVID-19 era, we are forced to have online office hours. Currently we are posting Zoom links into the location field. But that requires students and teachers to copy the link and paste in another browser tab. So I tried creating a URL activity and then use the Auto linking Filter. But that still does not work. We are trying to make it as easy as possible for students and teachers to access the Zoom link. Could you update your code on line 783 of the render dot php to $rowdata[] = format_text($slot->location, FORMAT_HTML); That will make auto linking work. That would also avoid us having to make the change each time we update the plugin. Thank you.

Hello, I'm using moodle 3.7 and I have installed scheduler 3.7.0. After creating slots for the students, I found out that they are not able to view them instead they see this notification "No slots are available for booking at this time." when they access scheduler from their accounts.

Hi. Thank you for the great plugin.

I have an issue with the Scheduler Plugin. I do not want the teachers to see the email addresses of the students.
I have completely made the students hidden site wide on other areas of Moodle but it still shows under Scheduler. Please help. IT is very important for us to hide students email addresses from all users inlcuding teachers for privacy reasons. Thanks!

Good day,
Quick question, do you have an estimated time for the upgrade for moodle 3.10?

Hi there, we are interested in giving students the permissions to add a time slot so they can set up study-type sessions with other students in their course. The challenge we are facing is that if we allow the permissions in a scheduler actiivty for students to manage their appointments (allowing them to create them) they are unable to see the booking options of other students. Is there some configuration we haven't thought of? Or is this intentional? Is it possible to allow students to both add events and book them in the same scheduler?

Hi! It does not work in Moodle 3.10, does it? - Any estimated time for the upgrade?
Thank you
