    Hello Tim, I was trying to find out why is removing the grade_item idnumber but I can't see it. The idnumber on mdl_course_modules is ok after update the dates, but the idmodule of this table mdl_grade_items dissapear writing there the id of the mdl_course_modules. Could you check please, the plugin is so great but is impossible to use if you are working on course with advanced grading methods. Thanks!

    If that is happening, it is a bug, and a very strange one. It is not obvious to me what could be causing it. I will try to find time to investigate.

    ello Tim,

    As far as I see, if I comment the line update_gradebook on mod/assigndate.php the idnumber on mdl_grade_items is not changed. So I decided to act in this way with /mod/assign/locallib.php on line 873 and /mod/assign/lib.php on line 1073. What your plugin need has to be in between this two functions, but I think that we need to send the idnumber as well as we send the dates otherwise we lost them and moodle let the module idnumber on the mdl_grade_items as new idnumber.

    I repeat again it's a big problem and I would like to help you to find out exactly what's wrong but as much as I check I can't get in the solution. I'm suprise to be the first one having it as well.

    Hi, has anyone successfully tested this report on 3.2? We find it really invaluable and will likely be upgrading in the summer.

    We are in the process of testing this now. With Moodle 3.2, some of the automated tests fai at the moment. We should be fixing this in the next few weeks.

    Hello Tim, is your Dates Report working well for Moodle 3.3.1? Awesome report! Thanks!

    Hello Tim, question about the Dates Report categories. I see some of our classes in Moodle 3.2 show an "All" option to show dates for all activities and resources.
    Other classes do not show an "All" option.
    Any ideas why? Is the Dates Report choosing not to allow display of "All" if there are over a certain number of items? In the 2nd screenshot, there are a total of 19 items between 6 activity types.

    Seems to be the max number of activities/resources that will still display "All" is 4.

    Would the next release be able to support the new "remind me to grade by" date (gradingduedate) in the Assignment module?

    Also, if admins could set which items with dates are visible in this report that would be an extra bonus! When all the options are presented, some my feel overwhelmed and/or think they _should_ use them all. There are some that we would just as well leave unused :7)

    It should be possible to support that. I probably don't have time to implement that change, but for any developer looking at the code, it should be obvious what to do. If someone else can code it, I will merge the pull request.

    I find the plugin great. It is saving a lot of time. Thank you for that.
    In some activities you can add different dates for groups.
    It is possible to add group support for this plugin?

    Whats the latest for the plugin is it available for 3.3 and 3.4? I don't understand why this is not a part of Moodle Core.

    Moodle 3.4 has similar functionality build into Moodle core (and probably therefore less hacky). The plugin probably works with Moodle 3.3, but I have not tested it properly yet.

    Hi Tim,

    Where is this functionality on Moodle 3.4? I can't seem to find it despite all my searches. Basically, we just want to be able to update all assignment dates on one page, just like what this plugin does.
