    Update/clarification to my last comment: "Restrict Access" and "Availability" (this plugin) are two separate things and it appears that the date range functionality only applies to "Activity Types" whereas "Upload File to Moodle" (or "Resource") does not have the option to set a date range. In your opinion, would be the best way to proceed? Can we somehow grant the date range functionality to a Resource type?

    Thanks to Eric Merrill for verifying that this plugin works in Moodle 3.0

    One of our teachers is having issues with the report in a course. She made a copy of a course by backing it up and then restoring it as a new course. She used the report to change the due dates of the new course and they keep changing. When she opens the report to correct them, some of the activities are reverting back to the date in the original course and some of the dates are changing to the day she opened the report. We can't find anything in the log about how it's happening. Any idea where we should start looking?

    I am getting Error 500 - Internal Server Error
    An error was encountered while processing your request. Typically this is a temporary condition. Please contact the web site owner for further assistance.
    This error message appears when I click on Dates in Reports section after installation.... Any ideas how to correct the error?

    First, turn on Debugging to get a more helpful error message.

    @Tim I don't have any specific ideas. It certainly sounds like an odd set of symptoms. I think standard debugging techniques will have to apply: First try to reproduce this on a test server. Once you have clean steps to reproduce, try adding extra debug statements to the code to work out what is happening.

    I'd love to have an option that would list everything on one page in a course that has a due date attached from assignments and quizzes to TurnItIn and everything between. The less clicking to navigate would be best.

    The Activity Type "All" thing is because we were having problems when the form got too big. Therefore, if the course has too many activities, that option is not available. If you want to risk it, you can change this constant to something bigger than 20

    what kind of risks do you mean?
    Can I change the value to 60?

    If you click Save changes in the report, Restrict ratings to items of all forums automatically labeling of the current date

    Hi Tim,

    Minor one.
    class=activityicon does not seem to be set anywhere in bootstrap based themes, so icons can be odd sizes.
    Probably worth adding iconlarge or another class which is in Moodle Themes.

    The class name seems to be used in core:, including in theme/bootstrapbase/less/moodle/course.less - thought no size is set there.

    In many places in core, the activityicon is set without any other class name being specified.

    Hi Tim
    I too need the plugin to control showing dates of files (or "ressources"). I installed it and used it normally in 2.5. So there is no way to have it work in 3.1 too for files ?

    It would be very hard to make the conditional availability dates editable in this plugin since the changes to the conditional availability system in Moodle 2.7, which added the ability to have arbitrary and/or logic. I am not saying it is impossible, but if you want it, you will have to get it developed yourself. Patches most welcome.

    in fact, for that, it would certainly need a new plugin, like "View/edit all course restrictions", that would allow, in a single page/place, to see and edit all restrictions (sections, and resource/activities) of the course. Such a plugin should of course take into account all installed restriction plugins, even if not standard.

    Yes, that sounds like an awesome idea for a plugin.
