  1. Attendance Reports honor keep/skip and option to exclude preschool students

    Attendance Reports:

    1. Daily Enrollment by Month (CSR)
    2. Monthly Attendance Summary

    Report options needed (would be great for all attendance reports):

    1) Add option to skip Pre-school students
    2) Have reports honor KEEP and SKIPS.

  2. Teacher Attendance - Allow teachers to sort their students by first name.

    In Zoom, it list participants by first name (alphabetically) and not by last name. So, for ease of taking attendance, allow students to be sorted by first name, as well.

  3. Things that Should be shown on every screen & every tab

    No matter what page or tab we're on, we should be able to see the Student's entire name (middle included), ID number and learning platform (remote or in-person). It should all be right at the top next to the students name.

  5. Teacher Attendance - Option to Alphabetize Students Rather Than Split By Section

    Due to distance learning, students have been split into scheduled groupings. In teacher attendance, these sections also split the students into alphabetized groupings rather than having all students listed alphabetically. Having an option to take attendance alphabetically instead of by section would make it easier for teachers to take attendance.

  6. Attendance History Grade Field

    It would be helpful for the Attendance History table to include a Grade field for the related year. This would help when reviewing Grade 12 attendance history.

  7. Set "Mass Apply Attendance" Default Filters

    Now that teachers can set filters for mass applying attendance codes and notes, they would like to set their own default filters that way they don't have to reapply the filter every morning.

  8. Parent Square Health Screening API

    ParentSquare now has a Health Screening API:

    https://parentsquare.zendesk.com/attachments/token/LbwPKv83lIOfyBfICB1shtexg/?name=Health+Screening+-+API+Docs.pdf

    Please add the ability to 'sync' data in to Aeries so it can be viewed by our staff ( probably will require a permission for health clerks/ attendance clerks ).

    The goal would be our staff does not need to look at static reports / another portal to get student information.

  9. Attendance - Disable data entry on periods where the student has no classes

    On the Attendance page, please disable the period columns from data entry when the student does not have classes that meet during that period. Currently, no dashes display but an absence code can still be entered and saved.

  10. I wish that I could click a student's icon on the take attendance screen, then click the back button and return to the SAME class period.

    Here is my typical workflow: I'm finished taking attendance for 1st period and I want to check attendance totals for each student who was absent. I click the attendance icon next to their name, review the information, then click the Back button in the browser to return to the class list. However, this returns me to the currently scheduled period and not the period I was just viewing (frequently sixth period after the end of the instructional day). This makes it super painful to go through a list of students and review each ones profile or attendance info. I have…

  12. Mass Change ATT Codes/Mass Change All Day Codes

    Now that there's an option to auto-populate the all-day code based on period codes, the mass change programs need an option to not skip ATT records for which an all-day code already exists. This is critical when the all-day code is auto-populated to A, then can't be changed to U after the period absences have all been to U.

  14. Weekly Attendance Report - Honor Student Groups

    Would it be possible to allow filtering with student groups to differentiate cohorts when attendance is being taken on the weekly attendance report. It is hard to differentiate between the student attendance dates and what codes should be used. This is also going to cause some confusion for the auditors.

  15. Mass Add Attendance Note - Add Comment

    When mass updating the attendance notes, it would be helpful if the comment field could also be mass updated to capture any specific notes for the day. Currently, I can select a note to mass update and even type in the comment field, but the comment does not populate to all of the student records.

  16. Initialize ATT and CAR needs to allow functions (with warnings) to be run separate

    CAR dates not available when changing or adding classes because ATT was started without classes.

    There is a need to have the ability (with warnings) to separate the two functions.

  17. Weekly Engagement Report - Admin Log

    It would be nice if there was a screen where staff could check to see if teachers have run their Weekly Engagement Report like there is a screen to see if they have certified their Instructional Minutes. This wouldn't verify accuracy of the report, but at least office staff could confirm if the teachers had at least run the report and the date/time of the last time it was run.

  19. Allow attendance to be submitted by Section

    We have an unusual situation at our middle school where staff are primary teachers a limited number of sections per day, but moderate for other teachers at other times. This means that there are situations where a teacher's section might meet on M/W/F but they moderate on Tu/Th for a section that meets on Tu/Th/F. On Fridays, both sections show up for both teachers during that period on the attendance page. If one teacher takes attendance and submits, it's submitted for BOTH sections.
    It would be REALLY GREAT for teachers to be able to select the section for which they…

  20. Teacher Attendance Page - Option to Limit by Student Fields

    We have already separated all of the Blended Learners into cohort A/B. We are currently using the STU.AP1 field to tag which cohort they are in. This field will show up in the teacher attendance screen and many of the attendance reports. It would be extremely helpful to the teachers if there could be a filter option for this field (similar to the date and period) .
