Activity completion FAQ

From MoodleDocs

What happens when completion conditions are unlocked?

Once you unlock options and then click 'Save changes', all completion information for the activity will be deleted and, if possible, regenerated according to the new settings. See the section 'What happens when you unlock' in Activity completion settings for further details.

Can I change the default completion settings for activities in my course?

Yes. See Activity completion settings for how to do this.

Activity completion status does not change

Check Site administration > Server > Scheduled tasks and the task Calculate completion data. This should ideally be once a minute.

Can I move the activity completion checkboxes to the left instead of the right?


Please see MDL-34729 and MDL-31603

This is a not-fully tested solution, based on adapting Christian Herman's tip from Moodle 2.0 to 2.5 and discussion in If you are using Clean or More theme, add the following to the Custom CSS box in Appearance>Themes>Clean' (or More)

/* Completion Checkbox Left of Activity Icon and Align Checkboxes Full Left */ .section .activity .actions { position: relative; }

.path-course-view li.activity span.autocompletion, .path-course-view li.activity form.togglecompletion { float: left; margin-left: -15px;}

/* Small Space Between Checkbox & Icon */ .path-course-view .section .activity img.activityicon { padding-left: 1em; }
