For schools that need to track custom attendance codes to the state, there’s a new App on QuickSchools for that called “Custom Attendance Codes”. Attendance codes can be applied to date ranges, including future date ranges. This means you can let your teachers know when a student will be absent due to vacation and travelling. Here’s a quick rundown:
When installing the app, you can specify administrators who will create the custom codes, as well as apply the custom codes to specific students:
When setting up attendance codes, you can specify an attendance Code and Name, as well as how it relates to our existing Attendance module. You can also specify a default code when a teacher takes attendance:
The “Daily Status” screen displays all students in the school, as well as any attendance codes that apply for that day. Only ONE attendance code can be applied to any date:
Clicking on a student will bring up all attendance codes for that student: past, present and future:
Finally, if specified in the app configuration, the attendance roster will display any custom attendance codes that apply for that attendance date:
And that’s pretty much it!
