What We're Doing:
Adding a combination of updates to make it easier to take attendance in courses:
- A new row showing the status of attendance in the class: Started, Not Saved, Saved, or a blank space.
- Updating the process so Present is auto-filled only after the course admin clicks Start.
- Updating the attendance icons to be accessible.
- Updating the experience to be more user-friendly, such as highlighting today's row.
Why We Think You'll Like It:
For teachers, this feature is about saving time. Cutting down the time taking attendance means more time spent on the student experience.
For administrators, this feature is about school- and district-level reporting. You can now roll up course-level attendance into a school view, enabling easier reporting of attendance that can be sent to external systems.
