Occasionally, it is necessary to ensure that the charset and collation need to be the same. Please ensure you have a backup of your database before proceeding. While we offer this tool we do so without any warranty and your use is entirely at your own risk.

By default an Administrator viewing a student's timetable will only see links for those courses that have been made available to students. If you wish to override this behaviour select Enable and click Save changes. With this feature enabled an Administrator will see links and be able to access all Moodle courses in a student's timetable regardless of whether or not the course is available to students.
