1. Sign up on Poodll.com

To use most Poodll plugins you will need an account on Poodll.com. Get an account by signing up for a subscription or a free trial at https://poodll.com/try-poodll/

2. Install the Poodll Plugins that you want.

Generally you can install the Poodll plugins in one of three ways, via Moodle.org, via Zip file, or using Git. It is easiest and most common to install the plugins by visiting their page at Moodle.org/plugins and commencing the install from there.

We suggest you start by just installing: Cloud Poodll Assignment Submission

Once you have that working correctly, then install the other ones that you are interested in.

Plugin specific installation instructions and links to their Moodle page [->M]are below:

* The editor plugins will not show until you have configured the HTML editor (Atto or TinyMCE) to display them. Be sure review the documentation for each plugin for details on how to do that.

4. Set the API username and secret 

The Poodll plugins require an API user and secret. These would have been sent to you in your welcome email. But they can also be retrieved by logging into the the Poodll Member Dashboard. The Cloud Poodll plugins and Poodll filter each require their own copy of the API user and secret.  (The Classic Poodll plugins just use the API user and secret from the Poodll filter). Once you have entered the API user and secret in one plugin, there will be a "Set API user and secret with existing credentials" link below the API secret in the others. Use this to quickly set API user and secret.

When you renew or upgrade your subscription (eg from free trial to a paid one) the Poodll plugins will know about that automatically. You do not need to update any settings for them. But it may take up to 12 hours for the information to come through.

You can confirm that everything is ok after adding those by pressing the "Refresh license information" link (under the API secret in Moodle ) after saving the new settings.

5. Start Poodll'ing

At this point the plugin should be ready to use. Each plugin is used a different way, so be sure to review the documentation for the relevant plugin if you are unsure how to use it.
