    Hello Tim and Dates Report friends! Similar to John Velis' post from Mon, Aug 20, 2018, 7:31 AM, we are experiencing long load times because the report is loading all modules, including things like labels. Large courses can take 3+ minutes to load the Dates Report. Is there anything we can do to modify which module types are loaded, or otherwise improve loading performance? We adore the plugin.

    There should be a drop-down at the top of the report where you select which type of activity you wnat to see. I wonder why that is not working?

    That drop-down is there and works well, but it defaults to "All activities" upon page load. You can't change it until after the page has mostly loaded.

    Ah! So, it used to be the case that if there were more than 20 activities in the course, then the 'All activities' option was not avialable.

    However, that logic was unintentionally removed as part of this change: the sad

    I made an issue for it. I will fix it when I have time, but don't know when that will be.

    That is great, thanks so much! We'll keep an eye out.

    I got this plugin installed to our Moodle yesterday. I noticed you cannot edit the dates for Collaborate Ultra sessions, which was the main reason for me installing it. Is this a known thing, or is there some other issue I need to overcome for this to work?

    This plugin needs supprt added for each different type of activity. It is just one short PHP file:, but someone would need to do that for Collaborate Ultra.

    OK Tim, thanks for letting me know... that's above my level of knowledge unfortunately

    I installed this yesterday (I am a Moodle Noob) and like it so far. I would like to suggest some modifications/additions.
    1) Add a button for "Cut-off date", maybe call it "Same as Due Date", so we don't have to pull down so many menus.
    2) Add a button for "Allow submissions from", maybe call it "Same as Course Start", so again, we don't have to pull down so many menus. I frequently allow submissions from the first day of class for all of my assignments. That way a student can progress through the course as fast as they like.
    3) Maybe allow users to enter a date in a single text-box (I know that users might enter wrong format, but validate it). When I copy a course for a new semester and I have over 30 assignments, there are a LOT of pull downs to work with to adjust the dates for the new semester.

    Does this plugin work for dates for activites with group overrides? Thank you.
  • Tim at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

    Well, it will let you alter the main activity date, but that won't change the overrides that have been set up.

    Is it possible to update Dates to use with Forums? Right now it only allows the expected completion date which causes a lot of confusion. Thanks!

    don't work on course big

    We're noticing a lot of our courses get the RESULT_CODE_HUNG browser error when attempting to use this plugin. We're on 3.11 and I notice that this isn't technically compatible with 3.11. Are there plans to update it or is there a replacement I should be using to duplicate its functionality?
