  1. 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.

  2. Improve Functionality of Teacher Attendance Mass Apply

    Here are three changes that would improve the usability of the new Mass Apply feature for attendance:

    1) Having the menu hidden by default is a nuisance for a teacher who has to use it 7 times a day. There should be an option to have the filter open by default. Perhaps a checkbox?
    2) The filter should remember the last setting used. For example if a teacher is filtering for a specific cohort that corresponds with a day the week, they would only have to set the filter up once at the start of the day instead of 7…

  4. Mass Printing of ReAdmit Slips from the Mass Add tab in Attendance Management

    When using the Mass Add Tab in Attendance Management - if there's a ReAdmit Slip, they need to be printed individually. Recommend adding a Print All option so the user can mass print the ReAdmit Slips for all students.

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. Teacher Attendance - Highlight the Attendance row when selected

    In Aeries Gradebook, when you click on a student's name, or hover over the entire row of that student is highlighted/made darker.

    Is there any way that that could happen in Attendance? When you hover on a student of when you click on an "Absent", and "N", or even "D", there is no change in the color of that student's row.

    I know that for me, it is easier to keep the marks for a particular student specifically for that student if his/her row is highlighted.

  8. Missing Attendance - Add Different time stamps for Attendance Submission

    Our elementary schools are set up with AM and PM sessions. Each teacher has two teacher records, one for AM and one for PM. When taking attendance, both sessions are time-stamped with the same AM time-stamp. For security issues, our office staff needs to know when the teacher has taken attendance for the PM session.

  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. Teacher Attendance - Please Include Section Number

    We have created AM/PM/DL sections to fit into our Blended Distance Learning model. Each teacher has an AM section (only AM kids) PM section (Only PM kids) DL section (all kids) and we have used specific numbers to indicate which one is which. Great idea except the Section number doesn't show on the Teacher's Attendance page.

  11. Teacher Portal - New Attendance Report with Selectable Date-Range

    Teachers should be able to select a date range to look at attendance metrics for a student. This is very helpful for teachers working with students who have attendance goals.

    We need to see how many full days absent in total, how many period absences in total, how many period lates in total total, how many period tardies in total, how many period truancies in total and overall attendance rate for a specified time period. We should be able to print out this date range information in a format that is understandable to parents and other adults in English and/or…

  12. Display Attendance Totals for Teachers

    My teachers are asking if it is possible to include totals at the bottom of their attendance screens for each column (absent, tardy, late truant) for the given period they are teaching for the day. Right now they have to scroll up and down the class list and tally the numbers of students absent or tardy or ill.

  13. Attendance class header should display in front of the previous schedule when scrolling up

    When a student has a schedule change and the user scrolls up past the frozen period header legend, the correct header schedule doesn't display until after the user scrolls past the header. Enhance the scrolling so that the schedule that should appear in the header is in front of the one being replaced, currently it's behind it until you scroll past the period legend.

  14. 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?

  15. 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. 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.

  18. Bell Schedule - Copy to Multiple Days

    It would be helpful in some situations, such as when schools may fluctuate between schedules due to the pandemic, to be able to quickly copy a single bell schedule to multiple days at once instead of having to set the schedule one day at a time. Being able to multi-select days by either control-click, checkbox, or some kind of "copy to all subsequent regular days of same name" (so all following mondays, or tuesdays, etc as the currently selected day) would be great.

    Thank you!

  20. 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.
