Sort order to attendance register


We have always organised our student data alphabetically by first name (we are a small school!). It would be great to organise the attendance registers this way too, so we can avoid confusion for staff as we move over to Gibbon. Is there any way to do this?

Thanks in advance for your help!


  • Hi Dorian,

    There is no global switch for this I am afraid. The closest you can come at the moment is to edit the roll order value for each student (under People > Students > Student Enrolment), which impacts the ordering of students in the Markbook, and also for attendance taking.

    This is the kind of feature we will be in a better position to offer in v18 or v19, once we are further forward in our efforts refactoring the code base here. At the moment there is a lot of repeated code, making such changes harder.


  • Hi Ross,

    Thanks for the info. I think we'll wait until v18 or v19 :smile:
