Timeline block

From MoodleDocs
  • The Timeline block (displayed by default on the Dashboard and replacing the timeline tab of earlier versions of the Course overview) provides an overview of deadlines.
  • Deadlines may be sorted by Overdue or Upcoming due dates (1) or by due dates per course (2).


How to make activities and resources display in the Timeline block

For activities

  • Either set a deadline or
  • Set an 'Expect completed on' date in the activity completion settings
  • For teachers to see assignments which need grading, a 'Remind me to grade by' date must be entered in the assignment set up screen.
  • Note 1: the dashboard will only display a maximum of 2 weeks in the past for 'Overdue' or 'Remind me to grade by' activities
  • Note 2: students will not see activities on the dashboard unless they currently have access to view them in the course (ie. If an assignment is restricted to the view of a lesson, the assignment will not appear on the dashboard until the lesson has been viewed).
