Possibility of registering attendance forward-looking
==== Attendance colours ====
Granting access to functions in the registration interface is done under 'Setup web access/Absence'. Attendance basic allows 'register access' and 'Future registration access'. Enter a group (nested groups are allowed) with the teacher/employees that are allowed to use the specific function. See example below.
To edit letters and text used in the attendance module, choose the button 'Select' (see the window above).
Double-click on the row containing the settings you want to edit. See below
=== Individual settings ===
Individual settings can be altered per education, class, or similar. For settings valid for the entire school, see 'Global settings'. If an individual setting for a specific group is needed, it is necessary to create the group with the students in question beforehand.
To set it up go to Configurator -> Templates -> Edit -> Absence -> Manage -> Add a new or edit an existing setting. [[File:Absence_notify1.png|link=http://wiki.inlogic.dk/index.php/File:Absence_notify1.png|none|thumb]]
==== SMS and App settings for notify absence ====
* 'SMS Keyword' - The 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 notifying absence. The teacher will see this status in absence registration * '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. 3.pm., 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 students will be able to be register as absence.
