Feature Request for Gordon's Conference database

Number of replies: 8

I really like the ease of use of Gordon's conference management database. I would like to request a feature to allow presenters to upload files (pdf, word doc.) that could then be downloaded before a presentation. It would be an easy way to distribute handouts or other materials to participants for online presentations and save paper in F2F situations. Probably not doable for this Moot, but a possibility in the future.

Actually, there was a field to hold this information, but it was not displayed on the form to add or edit entries. I have made it visible now, so please add your handout:

Gordon,
I just tried the link, but got an error message. Says localhost refused to connect.

Sorry, my mistake. Please go to the "MoodleMoot Japan 2021" page, and then click the link for "Submit a Proposal for a Presentation", and edit your submission record.

I just tried, but the system has already generated this URL (
https://moodlejapan.org/mod/data/presentation_handout_fileMaximum%20file%20size:%202GB,%20maximum%20number%20of%20files:%201Loading...) in the field to upload a file. It has done the same thing for the Presentation slides, Presentation URL, and video.

David, if you clear your browser cache, it should be working for you now. Thanks for your patience.
