Plugins may be installed to convert uploaded assignment submissions to PDF format for teachers to annotate. The list of available converters may be accessed from the Plugins section of Site administration.
There are currently two document converters available as standard plugins:
- Unoconv (in 3.2 onwards) requires Unoconv to be installed on a server.
- Google Drive converter (in 3.3 onwards) requires the OAuth 2 Google service to be enabled.
Template:Retry failed attempts Sometimes the document converter can fail to convert a single document. This can be because the file is not in a format that is suitable for conversion, or because of a temporary problem with the document converter. For this reason, the Moodle will retry failed conversion attempts up to a limit of 3 times. To adjust the number of retries, change the Moodle config setting "conversionattemptlimit".
