Activities: Scheduler

Maintained by Picture of Henning Bostelmann 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.

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, please use the Scheduler forum on

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

    Hi Henning,
    A little suggestion for next version maybe. It would be nice to be allowed to set preferred export format in site config. Many users export data to use them inside excel but don't change the default export format. When files contain accents, they get weird characters in Excel.

    Hi Henning,

    I have a little problem.
    When I put a file link in Booking form and student-supplied data, like instructions and other info, but students see this URL, and it is no a vali link -> NOT FOUND.
    Any idea? Just happen there....

    Thank you

    @Valery, long time no see! The WS API was something on my long-term to-do list. I am always happy to consider contributions, although I can't promise to integrate them (it really depends what the code looks like, whether it's of wider interest, etc.). If you like, open an issue in the tracker and link a github branch, once your work is finished.

    Hi Henning, nice tool. Can I prevent teachers seeing students' email addresses? Thanks.

    Why when I'm connected as a student I have a message saying that guests can't view this activity. Normally, in this situation I can view, and do, any activity in the course but schedule not.

    @Albert, no, i don't think so, not at the moment. What setting are you using in other contexts (e.g. participant lists) to hide the e-mail address from teachers?

    @Nadine, this will have to do with your permission settings. Probably you have customized the student role. See here for the required permissions:

    Hi Henning,
    we offer your Plugin Scheduler to allow our students to book their meetings with teachers during projects and assignments. So, we got some feedback from our teachers lately, that it would be great if they could give a short justification when forced to cancel an appointment during the process of cancellation and which would be sent with the notification. Maybe we missed it and it is already there – in this case we would be thankful for a hint. Otherwise it may be a feature for further development?

    Thanks a lot!

    Is there a way to group slot booking? For example, once Employee Login and click on Slot Booking, he will see radio Buttons as Tester, Developer, Manager. If he select Tester, he will see slots assigned to tester. Then, he will Book Appointment from Slot.

    Hi Henning,
    It would be great if we can bind it with an existing activity. Say if I can bind it to a quiz. So that a student can book his slot for the quiz. When he attempts a quiz he should be asked to schedule it. If he booked a slot then he should be restricted to that slot only. Is it possible? If so can we expect to have such a feature any time soon?
