      Description

      I was wondering how student are able to see in which groups they are enrolled. I can see two possible ways that they can do this. Unfortunately neither seems to work in my current version of Moodle.

      The first way that the user might be able to find this out in which groups they are participating is through the profile page (see 1 on attachment). If I click on the group that is mentioned there I see the participants list of the course and I see all participants (see 2 on attachment).

      The second way is through the participant page (see 2 on attachment). There is button that says "groups" on the top of that page.

      When I click on the "groups" button I get the following error "A required parameter (id) was missing" (see 3 on the attachment).

      Is this a bug?

      Are there any other ways of finding for a student in which groups they are participating?

      B.T.W. I always find it difficult to label the priority. I hope "Major" is not considered offensive (I mean Darfur is major....), but to me this is quite important functionality...

          Hello,
          the 1.8 groups code was reverted in 1.9dev, the missing id bug was already fixed.

          The list of groups you belong into is available in the course profile page. Activities in group mode usually print the group selection in the top left part of the screen. Since the introduction of groupings there is a new problem - each activity may use different set of groups, the course participants list my printed only a limited number of groups.

          I doubt there is any universal way to present "own groups" in the UI of activities because each one may use group modes in a different way - for example in case of assignments the groups are used only for grading - it does not matter much from the student point of view.

          I am going to change this to feature request instead of bug report, thanks!

          Petr
