    Hi Daniel:

    Fantastic plugin, especially for meta-course enrollments and cohorts!

    Any chance you might make an update to this great plugin for 3.5 / 3.6?

    Thank you for sharing your great work with the Moodle community!

    Hello, Joseph

    I'm glad you enjoyed the plugin.
    If you have any time to test this on a test server and report any errors or malfunction it will accelerate the process of update.

    Best regards,
    Daniel

    Hello Daniel

    If I may echo Joseph in his request to have an updated version for 3.6...we use this plugin a lot, it has been absolute game changer for our administrators and saves them the hassle of manually grouping large cohorts of up to a 1,000 learners...we have just upgraded to 3.6...please let me know anything I can do to speed up the development...

    Hello,

    I made available a new version that should be compatible with 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7.
    It is the same code, the APIs didn't change for what I saw. Let me know if you find any problems using it.

    Fantastic news. Works like expected apart from the fact that the link to the plugin at the course level no longer shows in the main navigation drawer Course Mgt < User Links (we use boost-based Fordson). I have to click on the Course Admin link in Course Mgt and then Users to get to it. Any ideas? I emailed screenshots over last week. Many thanks!

    Hello, Karoline

    I'm not aware of this "main Course Management menu". Is it something the Fordson theme provides? Or is it Moodle core?
    It may be a change in Moodle or on the theme because for what I remember, I made the tool appear under Course administration -> Users -> Groups, at that time Moodle used the navigation block.
    With the removal of navigation block by default and the new menu on the cog icon, it may have being rearranged.
    I'm afraid there's nothing the plugin code can do to add itself to somewhere else more convenient.

    Would be possible to have a select all checkbox so that all groups can be selected at once?

    There is a new component to select all/none coming in 3.8. I'll implement that after 3.8 release.

    Hi Daniel: Fantastic plugin to help teachers manage groups--this plugin really makes group work flexible and encourages teachers to not be afraid to make groups since you can sync them between courses! Any timeline on your release for 3.8? Thanks again for sharing your great work with the Moodle community!

    Hi, the plugin is available now for 3.8 and 3.9

    Is it possible to SELECT ALL groups?
    Thanks for the plugin.

    Hello, Dinis
    I just made available a new version with a master checkbox to select/unselect all groups.
    This requires Moodle 3.8 onwards.

    Um grande abraço do Brasil!
