Bulk Update Per Student - Attendance Details

What does this mean?

There are situations when Staff or Instructors need to update several Attendance Dates at once for a Student and rather than updating each one individually you can now Bulk Update Per Student Attendance Details.

How does this work?

Let's say you need to update several weeks of Attendance for a Student that was present for all dates - before you would have to go to each date and mark P or enter the hours (depending on Standard or Hourly Attendance Type for the Course). Now you can update all at once:
Bulk Update Per Student - Attendance Details
1. When you edit student attendance there are checkbox for each item.
2. Select the ones you want to edit.
3. Click on 'Update Selected' at the bottom.
4. Modal window pops up and you enter attendance there. Depending on standard or hourly different options are available.
5. Click on 'Apply' and the attendance is applied to the selected attendance items.
6. Click on Save.
