      Description

      It would be useful, if you can specify the courses where the aditional user profile fields should be displayed. The requirements of these specific fields could be different in each course.

            Hi Sami,

            IMO the option you suggest is bad for consistency. Users are users across all Moodle courses, with all their information (both standard and custom fields). I really don't see the point about viewing some information in some courses and another in others. Note that it will be specially noticeable for students, viewing different data on their profile pages based in the course... uhm... my -1 for this.

            assigning this to Shane Elliot... for final decision...

            Thanks for the idea! Ciao

            Hi Sami,

            Thanks for the suggestion. I agree with Eloy - user information is site-wide and should remain that way. It would also be problematic. to implement.

            If you wanted to collect/display information about users specifically within a course then this could be done via a database activity - http://docs.moodle.org/en/Database_module

            Once again, thanks for the idea. Please do keep them coming.

            Cheers,
            Shane.
