Comments

This is a great bundle. We are high school district and we use meeting attendance. However, our teachers would like to access the daily attendance values as well. We set this up on our attendance preferences - For example- if the student is absent for more than 4 periods, consider his daily attendance to be zero. Is there a way we can add "Daily" YTD values at the top of this report?

Thanks,

I'm not quite clear on what you want added to the report. It would help if you can create a mock up showing the additional information you want to display. You can email it to pscb.development@gmail.com.

Thank you for another most excellent plugin/reports!

One quick question, an I totally understand if this isn't something you would want to add on the teacher side - but would it be possible to get Date Range added as well as the static date? That way teachers would be able to select either a singular day or just take a quick view over a date range.

Thanks either way!

A date range option has been added in version 1.1 of PSCB PowerTeacher (Attendance Report) plugin.

Great suggestion. Date Range will be included in the next release of the plugin. Scheduled for release next week.

I have many of the PSCB bundles installed, including version 3.0 of the base resources. This report doesn't show up in the lefthand nav for my teachers. I can manually go to the address, but do not see anything regarding Attendance Report in the menu.

I see in the wildcard something regarding if.gpv:tabname=attreport but I'm not sure what that is actually checking.

What am I missing here?

If the link does not appear, it could be the result of a conflict with another customization to PT left navigation menu. Check the wildcard folder to see if other left nav customizations exist.
