This document applies to Joomdle Release 1.2.1

User profile integration

  • When the user updates his Easysocial profile, data (name, email, city...) is replicated in Moodle profile
  • When the user updates his Easysocial avatar, it is also updated on Moodle

Required plugins:

  • Easysocial profile


Please check Field Data Mapping to get more info on how create mappings to sync profile fields.


Specific notes:

Easysocial stores address info in a complex format, which makes it harder for Joomdle to map those fields. Because of this, there is a limitation when mapping address fields: Address, city and country.

If you want to map these fields, you will need to map them to Moodle's address, city and country fields, as mapping them to other fields won't work.


Activities in wall

When enabled, activities are created in Easysocial:

  • When a new course is added in Moodle, a new activity informs of it in Easysocial
  • When a user enrols into a course, a new activity is added to his profile
  • When a user submits a quiz attempt, a new activity is added to his profile (Moodle 2.1+ only)
  • When a user completes a course, a new activity is added to his profile (Moodle 2.5+ only)


Required plugins:

  • Easysocial activities


You will need to enable "Social activities" in Joomddle configuration in Moodle.


Easysocial groups for Moodle courses

Every time a new course is created in Moodle, a new group is created in Easysocial for it.

Every time a user enrols into a Moodle course, he is added too to the corresponding Easysocial group.

You can select the category to use for course groups in Congiuration->Integrations->Easysocial groups.


Required plugins:
