    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Minor
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 2.4.1
    • Fix Version/s: 2.5
    • Component/s: Course

      While logged in as a normal teacher or admin user
      Enter a course that contains users - view the partipants list (link via people block)
      make sure the "brief" participants layout is being shown.
      check to make sure the checkboxes appear as the first column in the table
      probably a good idea to try some bulk actions to ensure it's working.

      check the detailed participants layout and make sure the checkbox is in the same location as previously - (see screenshots attached for examples)

      Description

      the "brief" participants page layout places the checkbox as the last column of the table - most other reporting pages that list users in a table place the checkbox in the first column.

      This becomes a problem when the size of the middle column is small and in some themes (magazine is a good example) the checkbox is completely hidden unless using the scroll at the bottom of the table - but in using the scroll you can hide the users name and can't tell which user you're making the selection on.

      I think it makes sense to change the layout of the page to place the checkbox before the users name like on other report pages (quiz reports/assignment reports etc)

      I'm not sure about the "user details" view of the participants page - I think it makes sense to leave the checkbox in it's current location though.
