    Thanks for sharing this plugin with the Moodle community. Some formal issues were detected and reported by our automated plugin checker tool. Please review all the plugin checker results and fix the issues mentioned, if possible. These changes are typically pretty easy to make but if you have any questions just let us know.

    Please provide the plugin description into the text fields in the form, instead of providing a link to an external PDF file.

    Thanks. Can you please edit the upload version details and select the supported Moodle versions? Without that, we are unable to review the plugin and integrate this fully into our infrastructure.
