    Hi Ricardo,

    We are currently working on our Moodle 3.4 upgrade.

    The master branch of the repository contains code updated for Moodle 3.4, we have not put up a new release here yet as we have not put it through our full testing process yet.

    While its a really great plugin, "Mobile app support" isnt true.

    Moodle Mobile 3.5 is unfortunately not supported at the moment (the way plugins need to support it was changed), it does however work with older versions of Moodle Mobile.

    It is a busy time of year for us at the moment, but I hope to be able to add support for Moodle Mobile 3.5 after things quieten down somewhat.

    Hi - we have v4.5.0 on our moodle 3.3.5
    Although tutorial booking setting 'liveservice' is ticked, there are no messages sent to tutorial bookers and no messages added to tutorialbooking_messages table.

    Is there anything I can do about this ?

    Hi Gary,

    For an individual user do they have e-mails enabled for Tutorial Notifications?

    Have you checked the default message outputs in your Moodle's site administration, is 'Tutorial Notification' set to e-mail users by default? If you change this and a user has never modified their own notification preferences changes here will affect them.

    The messaging preferences of users should be respected by the Tutorial booking plugin.

    I'm making the assumption that other sources of messages in your Moodle are able to send e-mails to users.

    Do you get any error messages when you try to send a message?

    Hi, everyone.

    Is there a way to create a calendar event for the slots created? That would be great!

    At the moment, I do it "manually", but if we could have the option "create calendar event" similar to the attendance plugin, it would save me a lot of time.
    Thank you.

    The only way is manually, as there are no dates stored for slots.

    How can I get 3.5?

    Quite a few people seem to be using the plugin on Moodle 3.5, I suspect they are using version 4.6.0 (2018-01-10).

    Based on the changes I made for Moodle 3.6 I imagine you will have no problems with it, however we have only put tags on for versions of Moodle when we have done at least some testing and verification of the plugin against it.

    Hi Neill,

    we've got this error msg when try to create time slots (moodle 3.6, fresh install of your plugin): Exception - Return value of mod_tutorialbooking\output\tutorialbooking::load_slots() must be an instance of mod_tutorialbooking\output\void, none returned

    do you have any idea what is wrong?

    thanks

    Hi Andras,

    Which version of PHP are you using?

    It looks like we have used a PHP language feature that was introduced in PHP 7.1

    Working on a fix now.

    Version 4.8.1 should work with PHP 7.0. Apologies for the problem.
