Attendance

Is there a way to have homeroom attendance auto populate in every period that day?  To clarify, the homeroom teacher takes attendance, and if marking a student absence, I am looking for a set up for the AU to auto populate in the remaining periods in the day.

I would like to know the answer to this question as well, if anyone knows. I need this attendance information to populate on my school's grading reports.

Did you ever find a fix to this? We are experiencing the same thing.

Thanks!!

@madair You may be able to change the homeroom section settings to also meet during the other periods of the day so that when attendance was taken it would also record attendance in those other periods.    For example:

 

Homeroom class would have a period expression for HomeRm and 1st, 2nd, 3rd period.  When attendance is taken it would record for all periods.     Under Meeting attendance chose ' once for all meetings'
