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.

    Hi,

    First of all, thank you for providing this tool, however I am wondering if it would be possible to use it in a different way as it was first meant to be. Let me explain what we intend to do : we would like to have a Moodle space dedicated to pedagogical meetings between students and teachers OR between students and peer-students OR even perhaps between teachers and peer-teachers.
    Slots could then be created eitherway by teachers AND students. The idea is that any user, disregarding their role(s) on the platform (be them teachers or students), could equally register online for a meeting or organize one themselves so that any other peer-student / teacher could attend such a meeting.
    I have been having a deep look at the various permissions and overriding possibilities within the course and within each of the 2 schedulers I have added, (one is meant for "Registering for a meeting" while the other should be used for "Planning a meeting"). It seems like having the permission to add slots in the scheduler automatically takes out the permission to register to any slot.
    Any idea to help us solve this dead-end situation ?

    Thanks for helping,
    Best,

    Yannick

    Hi,

    Using 3.5.0 on Moodle 3.5.3. Can you confirm a suspicion I have in that if a teacher sets up a schedule and assigns students to the slots, the students don't get an email about the appointment being made? That is what we are seeing. Notifications are on, they do get reminder emails, it appears in their calendar, just not getting an initial booking email.

    Thanks.

    Glenn.

    @Glenn Gidden: That is correct. No e-mail is supposed to go out in this case. E-mail notifications are sent: (a) to the teacher, when a student books or cancels a slot; (b) to the student, when the teacher cancels a slot. See here for details: https://docs.moodle.org/36/en/Scheduler_module#Messages_and_notifications

    @Yannick Vrolant: I'm afraid that Scheduler is not designed to do that. It is designed for a situation where teachers offer slots, and students book them.
  • Fri, May 17, 2019, 6:58 PM
    @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. smile 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?
  • Sat, Feb 27, 2021, 5:41 AM
    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?
