      Description

      In 1.9b4 when importing a csv into the grade book, import fails if any of the identifying fields are incorrect.

      The correct behavior should be to import all correct users' grades and show an error page listing the users not imported.

          I would personally call it a new feature, not a bug.
          But I agree the import plugin can be definitely improved.

          Petr,

          I would tend to agree, but we need this implemented before April. We don't mind doing it, but I wanted to see if anyone was planning on implementing the fix/feature and the timeframe.

          BTW, the new gradebook is awesome, but a PITA to figure out.

          the UI needs more work, sure - fortunately you can "fork" the import current plugin and make your own now

          This way was done deliberately (we didn't want to allow half-successful imports). You have a chance to go back and fix the import and try again without any messing up of your data in Moodle.

          We should be printing errors though so you know what went wrong. Do we do that Petr?

          We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.
