      Description

      Upload user do not has support for Cohorts. It could be useful to create support for this feature.

      As a workaround, if Bulk user action is going to support Cohorts, It could be sufficient selecting Yes in "Select for bulk operations" whe uploading users. However, that workaround may prove a little "hidden".

          We really like the cohorts feature in Moodle 2.0, but we have multiple sites with a couple thousand users each, that we would like to put into cohorts. Being able to put the users in cohorts through a bulk upload action would save a lot of time over having to enrol each user in a cohort manually.

          I think this is a major shortcoming of cohorts, especially on larger sites.

          How about adding an "Add to cohort..." feature on the "Bulk user actions" screen in the "With selected users..." drop-down?

          +1. Cohort is generally lacking support in the Moodle UI, despite it being a powerful and important feature (i.e., only way to create site-wide groups of users).

          Related needed features: filtering Configurable Reports by Cohort and filtering Bulk User Actions by Cohort, plus discussion at MDL-26612. Also a big +1 for Alex's suggestion above for an "Add to cohort" action on Bulk User Actions.

          BTW - looks like this issue is duplicated in MDL-26965 - probably merge?
