As an administrator, you can now define the holiday calendar for each academic term that you set up. In addition, the feature can also restrict data entry for attendance. This will prevent teachers from inadvertently adding attendance data on days students are not expected to attend.
Here’s a quick guide on viewing and configuring the calendar:
- Under the “New Semester Setup” > “View All Semesters” menu, you should see a new “Calendar” link for each term:
- Clicking on it will bring up a calendar for the specified start/end dates defined for the term:
- You can then click on a cell to set that day as a holiday, by applying a “Day Label”:
- To restrict attendance, you will need to configure your Attendance module on the Settings page, and enable the “Hide “Take Attendance” button on non school days” option:
Once this setting has been turned on, your teachers will only be able to take attendance on configured schools days.
