Create dynamic user profile fields from Moodle database using this plugin #MoodlePlugins – Moodle World – Moodle World

 

A new Moodle plugin released this week helps you to create dynamic menu user profile fields whose values are retrieved from the Moodle database. The plugin “Dropdown dynamic menu” is mainly intended for Moodle administrators and developers who are well versed with Moodle DB and SQL.

The plugin developed by Antonello Moro can be used to create dynamic profile fields based on the values saved in the database. The new user profile fields can be displayed on the user profile page and the signup page as well.

You can download the Dropdown Dynamic Menu plugin from the Moodle plugins database here and it is available for Moodle 2.9 & 3.0 versions. You need to install the plugin inYour_Moodle_Site\user\profile\field directory.

To create a new dynamic profile field, visit Site Administration > User > Accounts > User Profile Fieldsand Select the Dropdown Dynamic Menu and follow the instructions mentioned here.

I have tested the plugin on my development server and it is working fine but as of now I was not able to think any use case for this plugin. Will update this post once got some idea.
