School: Daily Attendance Dashboard

TABLE OF CONTENTS

The School > Daily Attendance dashboard is used to receive Daily Attendance from Teacher Plus, edit Daily Attendance, and view Daily Absent and Tardy totals.

Edit features are only available if the AdminPlus Supervisor has requested edit from apcom@rediker.com and has selected to edit Attendance in AdminPlus.com. Schools that use any combination of the Scanning or Receive from File should continue to edit in classic until these features are added in AdminPlus.com.
