    Description

      Hello,

      It would be a great improvement to the utility of the calendar synchronisation if the calendar events exported from Moodle included the details of those events, just like in the Moodle display of the calendar : 

      • Event planning
      • Type of event
      • Event description 
      • Link to course
      • Module action link

      For example, in the Moodle calendar view of an assignment (example below), there is the description of the event, a link to the course the event comes from, and a link to perform a submission.

      If a user is enrolled in multiple courses it is not possible to know what course the event comes from. There is also no link to the activity of the course, which prevents the user from taking direct action directly from the calendar.

      Many thanks,

      Justin
