Ever wanted to simplify the enrolment process for some of your courses by just auto enrolling users, based on actions they take within the system? This plugin helps you out with this, as you're able to configure which user actions should trigger a course enrolment for a user smile

Auto enrolment can be configured for the following scenarios:

  • Auto enrolment upon course view
  • Auto enrolment on login (new in 2.8)
  • Auto enrolment upon activity/activities view

The plugin also allows you to configure a welcome message to be sent to the user upon enrolment.

    Running that plugin, looks good so far, doing what it's supposed to.
    Right now you can only have one trigger for all courses that run auto enrolment. It should be possible to alter the code (well, mostly only names so it doesn't create duplicates, and maybe minor changes to whatever it does in the database) so I can have a second install of that plugin and therefor have different triggers for different courses depending on the plugin version that I chooses for that course, right?! Anyone tried that already?

    I installed this plugin and got the following error:
    "Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: Block type admin has been disabled by the administrator"

    This is when a learner logs in for the first time and views the course.

    Can you please assist?

    Hi Eric,

    Could you log the issue, with some more details of what is not working here:

    We've used the plugin to enroll users into a course when they log in to the site. However if we disable the enrollment method in the course by clicking the "eye" button, users are still enrolled.

    Should users be enrolled if the enrollment method is disabled?

    Is the plugin stable with moodle version 3.7/3.8?

    This is a great plugin that solves some important user experiences issues for me. One question I have:

    I notice that Students and Authenticated User roles are properly enrolled based on how this plugin is configured, but not Manager roles. Is this a permission that can be changed? Is there any documentation explaining what roles will receive enrollments so I can be aware of that when defining them?

    Hi - thank you for this great enrollment plugin. Is there any way to unenroll a student, say after 30 days (set an enrollment period)? Self-enrollment method has this option.

    Just want to confirm this works for Moodle 3.9; it's a great little plugin that has saved me an immense amount of frustration!
