      1. In web, login in a site 3.3 or higher as admin and enable the option "courselistshortnames".
      2. In the app, login in that site. Check that you see both the course shortname and the fullname in:
        1. User dashboard -> Courses.
        2. Site Home -> Available Courses (this option needs to be added to Site Home, "List of courses").
        3. Site Home -> My Courses (this option needs to be added to Site Home, "Enrolled courses").
        4. Site Home -> Categories (this option needs to be added to Site Home, "List of categories").
        5. Site Home -> Search (this option needs to be added to Site Home, "Course search box") -> Search a course.
      3. Repeat the steps above in a 3.1 site without local_mobile. Check that you only see the course fullname (the WS to retrieve the shortname is only available from 3.2 and onwards).

      Description

      Moodle option courselistshortnames allows for courses displayed in lists (such as the home page, courses list, etc.) to show the short name as well as full name. For example, if the shortname is B747 and the fullname is Airline Management, the entry will read 'B747 Ailrine Management'.

      This is intended for institutions where students frequently refer to courses via code name instead of the full name.

      This option doesn't seem to be implemented in the mobile app. For example, I would expect to see the short name included:

      • In the course box on the 'Courses' page of 'course overview'
      • With each course in the 'Available courses' list
      • In the orange header bar when within a specific course

      There might be other places too.

      (Note: I'm just reporting this bug and not fixing it, sorry - at present I don't have capacity/skills to actually fix mobile app issues. Maybe later!)
