Hi, I have two Gibbon installations (A is a production one, Gibbon v.18, B is a test one, Gibbon v.17). When taking class attendance, a number of fields/menus are not shown on the bottom of the UI (admin or teacher). Browsers are either Chrome of Firefox. The fields/menus in question enable mass taking of attendance status for our students.
The difference can be seen here:
A) System A (missing fields/menus)
B) System B (fields/menus shown)
Also, I am not sure if that is the reason, but even if we set their attendance manually (one by one, using the fields/menus under their respective profile pictures), the data is not showing in any of the reports, but it is visible in the log.
What could be the problem/issue? Thanks in advance.
I have solved the original question (obviously the difference between v.17 and v.18), but I still have that even if we set their attendance manually (one by one, using the fields/menus under their respective profile pictures), the data is not showing in any of the reports or if you go to the student profile > Attendance (it says no attendance taken), but it is visible in the log.
First issue regarding v17/v18:
The fields at the bottom of the page allowing to change fields in bulk are a new feature that came with Gibbon v18 afaik.
I’m not sure to understand you fully. Can you please show the screenshot of the student profile where is says “no attendance taken”?
It says here “no data”, although the attendance was definitely taken on January 16:
While here it says for that class and on that particular date (January 16th) that attendance has been taken:
And it also says on the bottom of that screen that 26 students are accounted for as present:
I’m a bit lost here because I’m not very familiar with class attendance. We only take roll group attendance in our school.
I’m not very sure but could it be that you mix up class attendance with roll group attendance?
The student’s profile shows roll group attendance only afaik.
Therefore if you take class attendance it will not show in the student’s profile.
Hello, Class attendance does not, by default, count as school attendance (which roll/form group and personal attendance do). However, you can adjust the setting Count Class Attendance as School Attendance under Admin > School Admin > Attendance Settings in order to change this behaviour. This is off by default. Hope this helps! Ross.
Thank you, Ross. I think that will definitely help. I will try it and let you know in this thread
