To bulk edit marks go to Students> Attendance> Bulk edit marks on the left-hand side.
What's on the Bulk Update Marks page?
Click on the green filter option at the top to choose a date range and student group.
If your school uses timetable periods, each attendance mark will align with the correct timetable period.
Column headers now display as periods by default. If no periods are set up, you'll see the timeslot.
You can add Year Group and Reg Form columns via the filter panel.
Internal Exclusions and Interventions are now shown so you can see if a particular student is in an Internal Exclusion or Intervention rather than in lesson.
If a student is registered in more than one session at once, all sessions show in the period (this is why you might see more than one mark in some cells):
- A green tick means the student was present.
- A yellow clock means the student was late.
- A dash means no mark was recorded.
- A letter indicates the student was absent and for what reason.
View Attendance Notes or log a Planned Absence right from the Bulk Edit Marks page - just hover over a mark in the table.
Tick the students that will be given the same mark and then click on the blue pencil.
Choose between either 'Bulk set Present' or 'Bulk set Absent' and a slide over will appear.
Once everything in the slide over is updated just click on 'Save Changes'.
Please note: Bulk editing cannot be done for future registers. Please instead schedule planned absences for the relevant students. To see how to do this, click here.
