The appointmentlocation field in the scheduler_slots table is too short.
The reason this is an issue for me is because I need to be able to specify the appointment location in multiple languages in this field and the 50 characters defined in the scheduler_slots table schema for this purpose doesn't allow me to do that. Even if I didn't need multiple languages, I also need to specify address, city and province in this field as courses are offered across the country.
For example, I use the Moodle multi-lingual content filter. In the "Location" field, I would enter the following string:
This example requires 112 characters. When I enter this string and click either of the Save buttons, I get a non-descriptive "error" for this field.
Fixing the issue will require the following 3 changes:
CHANGE #1 - Please expand the size of the appointmentlocation field in the scheduler_slots database table to 255 characters.
CHANGE #2 - To enable more than 50 characters to be entered in the field, please modify the function add_base_fields() in /mod/scheduler/slotforms.php:
CHANGE #3 - To enable multilingual filtering of text entered in field, modify the function scheduler_get_mail_variables() in /mod/scheduler/locallib.php:
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding these changes.
