  1. Allow Districts to determine default values in ADA Make Up creation

    We would love the ability to have our only ADA Make Up code be defaulted when adding the note. We would also like the date in ADA Make Up to be todays date (GETDATE). This allows for quicker data entry for attendance staff. Thank you!

  2. Mass Add Attendance Notes

    Currently, Mass Change Period Absences only works for updating one day at a time which means attendance notes can only be added one day at a time. It would be helpful to be able to update attendance notes for a date range, ex: add same attendance note 9/13/21-9/15/21.

  3. Display attendance time on Attendance Submission Log report

    The Attendance Submission log page shows the time attendance was taken, but the printable report only shows the date attendance was taken, not the time. Using Aeries query also displays the datetime fields as date only.

  4. Placeholder image for photos

    When a student photo does not exist, instead of the Seating Chart in the Attendance by Photo screen showing a broken image icon (because it is, imo, malformed HTML (a bug!)) load a static placeholder image.

    <img src="data:image/jpg;base64," style="width:auto; height:auto;">

    Is invalid HTML, the source is not complete because it contains no actual data, eg an image of 0 length. Detect this state when building your base64 insert into the HTML and substitute in the placeholder when LEN = 0 for the data pulled from PIC.

  6. Sections attendance consolidated into 1 button to click

    I was told that with Flex Schools, "when multiple sections exist for each teacher and period, the "Attendance to be Taken (Marked as Complete) by Section" setting needs to be enabled so that each section is marked correctly in the CAS table since the attendance log (CAS) is stored by Section number."

    This means for Flex Scheduling any teacher that has multiple sections will have to press the submit button multiple times.

    We were wondering if this could be consolidated into 1 button

  7. Truancy (Attendance) Letters Based on Age

    The truancy 1, 2, and 3 letters are generated at the school sites. In previous years, we have kept only students grades 1-12 to receive the truancy letters. To stay compliant, we must include students who are 6 years old and older to receive these letters.

    Since this would be based on a student's 6th birthday and accounting for absences to generate letters AFTER their 6th birthday.

    What would be the best approach or query(ies) to do this since we cannot send a letter to a student who just turned six who is qualified to receive letters... when the student…

  10. make the lunch count field required for all of our K-5 sites

    Is it possible to make the lunch count field required for all of our K-5 sites? 
    I have checked our portal options and I see that we have the field enabled; however, I can't seen to figure out if there is a way to make this field required.

  11. Add ability to turn off notification of submitting future attendance

    Our attendance clerks are posting period attendance for future dates and have to acknowledge that they are posting future attendance for each day. Pretty tedious when a student is going to be out for a month or longer. It also gives the future warning for the next day. One warning or the ability to turn off those warnings would be greatly appreciated.

  13. Attendance reports to honor reporting home school

    With the new AB 130 requirements in California, we decided to maintain IS students in their own school but link them to their home school by Report Homeschool field on Student Data 2 tab.
    I realized when we run attendance reports, that report will just group students by grade/teacher but not by reporting home school.

    Can we have the attendance reports break out the groups by home schools, too, please?

  14. Allow for a full 11 month calendar to be created

    Currently, at the beginning of the year, you have to add all 11 months one-by-one. Please add a button to allow for the addition of the full 11 month calendar with one press and then we can go back to each month and edit the School Session days.

  16. Change the Attendance Letter List to have an option to print teacher instead of counselor

    Since the changes to the Demographic screen to include counselor as well as teacher the elementary level Attendance Letter List report does not print the teacher name. The office staff needs the teacher name printed instead. I would like to see an option to print teacher or counselor on the report interface at the elementary level.

  17. Attendance Notes - faster input, less clicking

    Attendance Notes - faster input, less clicking
    Single character codes from the list of attendance codes instead of entering three character abbreviation.
    Close attendance note window upon clicking the save icon instead of additional click on the X.
    See notes by hovering over text bubble on attendance calendar instead of click/wait for notes to load.

  18. Make the Attendance History Summary page printable

    We have the ability to view the attendance history page but not to print unless we right click the page and select print, which is very rarely successful. It would be very helpful if this page can be printed out, as many times parents request attendance history for their students. This would be a much quicker way to access prior years attendance without having to go into each year and print out attendance.

  19. District Attendance Letters - ability to sort printed letters

    When we take large batches of letters to the post office, we need to have them sorted by zip code. If we are running letters for the entire district, we will need this sort option when printing letters. We also need the ability to sort printed letters by school. Currently a copy of the letter is supposed to go into a students file, so we need to be able to easily divide up the printed letters by school so that they can be sent out for filing. No school is going to want to print 150+ letters one at a…

  20. 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.
