    It should still work correctly although it is looking at the legacy event names (Moodle 2.7 improved event handling and has renamed the events but is still triggering the legacy event.)
    Make sure you grab the latest code from github rather than the download package here.

    Let me know if you have any issues!

    You´re talking about the master - using that for 2.7 - is that correct? branch 2.6 seems older. /Simon

    yeah - master branch also includes some improved validation checks for the receiver address when editing/updating an activity.

    Some of the plagiarism companies offer trial versions but you will need to contact them directly to ask for details.

    Did some more proper testing with different urkund user accounts:
    1. Urkund default reciever adress in admin settings is empty
    2. Teacher A creates an assignment, activates urkund plugin for the assignment and inserts his Teacher A urkund reciever adress
    3. Teacher B creates an assignment some minutes later. The urkund plugin is disabled but when looking at the urkund plugin in that assignment Teacher B will find Teacher A's urkund reciever adress prefilled.
    4. Teacher B enables the urkund plugin and is overwriting Teacher A´s adress with his own adress
    5. Next time someone create an assignment, the reciever adress will be prefilled with Teacher B´s reciever adress

    Conclusion:
    1.The "latest" inserted urkund reciever adress is prefilled for all other following users of the activity. Even if I have a predefined receiver adress in the admin settings, - the "latest" inserted urkund receiver adress will overwrite the predefined settings

    Suggested when using assignment with urkund:
    1. If Urkund reciever adress is NOT predefined in the admin settings - the reciever adress field in each new assignment should be empty - nothing should be prefilled
    2. If Urkund reciever adress is predefined in the admin settings - the reciever adress field in each new assignment should be prefilled with the reciever adress which is predefined

    thanks for the detailed analysis Simon - it's supposed to be using user preferences to store that information so the address used by one teacher shouldn't end up being used by another teacher - could be a bug with the way these settings are being retrieved. What version of Moodle are you using?

    Hi Dan,
    I'm working at the same faculty as Simon H. and have the same problem with the Urkund plugin.
    We are using Moodle 2.7.1+ (Build: 20140814)

    Forgot to tell you that I have the same problem with a local Moodle 2.7.2+ (Build: 20140911) installation in Mamp.

    Sorry we bothered you Dan, you are quite right, it IS really using user preferences to store the information - we tested with two valid urkund reciever adresses but didn't tested with different logins.

    Thanks - that does sound strange, a quick look at the code and it looks ok - here's what is supposed to happen:
    on load of form it should check the users own user preferences for the receiver address, if that is blank it should use the site level default.
    when saving the form if the receiver address is not blank it will save the "current" receiver address into the users preferences so that next time it will use that address. If the site level default setting changes after the user has already entered an activity that has URKUND enabled and they create a new activity it will not use the new site level default as it will be loading the address from the users own preference table. Hopefully that makes sense - I'm pretty busy at the moment but will see if I can reproduce this sometime in the next few weeks.

    Thanks Dan, it sure make sense and I tested with another teacher login and it worked allright.
    Your solutions is really good as the single user only will need to write his/hers receiver address once.
