==== SMS and App settings for notify absence ====
* 'SMS Keyword' - The keyword set in this box will define which keyword the student sends in a text message to notify absence. E.g. the keyword 'Sick' means the student has to send a message containing 'sick' or 'sick %reason or message to the teacher%'. Both cases will be accepted by UMS
* 'Default incoming SMS status' - These are settings for notify absence. Choose which type of attendance the system should set as default when receiving a message from a student notifying absence. The teacher will see this status in the attendance registration interface. E.g. when the default type of attendance is 'Legal absence registration ', students will be marked as 'Legal absence' when notifying absent* 'Ignore messages for today start/end' - In the set time span, it is not possible for a student to send a text message to notify absence. This means that if the message is received before the given start time, e.g. 10 a.m., the system will check the students schedule for timetable blocks that day and mark the blocks with the default attendance status, e.g. 'Legal absence'. The system will then send a reply confirming the student is marked absent. If the message is received between the start and end time, e.g. 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., the system will send the student a reply, saying it is not allowed to notify absence at this time. If the message is received after the given end time, e.g., the system will check the schedule for timetable blocks the following day and mark those with the default attendance status, e.g. 'Legal absence' *'Require reason will force an absence reason before ' - The school can require the students to give a reason when notifying absence.
