Finding a student's assignment using filters

We have become aware of a few issues when using Moodle when trying to find a particular students assignment.

1. Select the assignment

2. select View all submissions

It should then appear in a format similar to this:

And when you scroll to the bottom of the page, it should appear in a format similar to this:

Issue one:

The first issue can be that if you were looking for Kelly Williams using the First and Last Name finder, as shown below:

and then you scroll to the bottom of the page and change the Assignments Per Page to 50

However, by changing this to 50 assignments your ability to search for the First and Last Name finder has disappeared.

To Solve: Select All under Assignments Per Page the finder then reappears.

Another option is to reduce the Assignments Per Page to 20, as there are only 12 students for this assignment.

Issue Two:

Sometimes the First and Last Name finder can disappear.

For example, when Assignments Per Page changes from All to 10.

The name finder typically appears at the top of the screen, as such:

But then the finder disappears and is shown where it should be by the Red Bar.

To regain the finder, we must change the Assignments Per Page to All, otherwise the finder will not show.
