Comments

The 1.9 update now displays 17-18 correctly for all students!! (I posted about many missing 17-18 in November 2018.) Thank you!

"Attendance Changes" is not working for any of our schools - all are Meeting Attendance.

I learned that we need to have "Audit attendance records" box checked under Start Page > School Setup > Attendance Preferences for every school. It works in our test system when we make this change. Thank you.

Will this work with version 19.11? I see only 19.4 indicated.

Yes. It is compatible with all 19.x versions.

Great, thanks!

Hello,

I have this installed for 2 schools. On the Daily Attendance tab for one school, it does not show the Days Absent / Present / Membership / Enrolled Tracking at all. The other school shows this tracker but it shows every student absent for 100% of the days and also has incorrect Membership and Enrolled numbers. Could I have set something up different and incorrect for these two schools?

Check your Calendar setup and confirm that the days have been configured correctly

Review the Calendar Setup for the following :
Cycle Day
Bell Schedule
School In Session
Membership Value

Also confirm that the FTEID and Membership values assigned to each student are correct. Also

So I managed to fix the membership values. But For one of the schools, I am still not seeing the Days Absent | Days Present | Days Membership | and Days Enrolled menu.

Compare the setups in each school and try determine the differences that exist in the school that is missing the attendance information.

Hi Team,
Is there a way to add a Days On time to the Attendance Info page. Our attendance is pretty good, but are continuing to have issues around tardies and would love to be able to quickly see that percent next to a students name. Thanks!

I figured out where it lives and added this code which we use to export and it is not getting the percent correct. Any suggestions?
