NEW FEATURE: Change Attendance Type Values

Thursday, December 7, 2017

When taking attendance for students, staff can select an appropriate attendance type for students, the default options being Present and Participation, Present not Participating, Absent, and sometimes Cut. We’ve added a new feature that allows admins to change attendance types values for column headers, as displayed on the Student Profile page. For example, if you change an option to Present/Active, you may want to change the column heading from P (Present/Participating) to PA (Present/Active). These changes are reflected on the student profile page where the Attendance Types table is displayed.  To make these changes, go to Settings, and Attendance Types. There you’ll find a new field called Column Head, where you can change your attendance types column heads.
