I am trying to change a section period, and I keep getting the following error message:
Record not saved
Updates to the schedule expression will orphan associated attendance records.
I have attempted to clear all attendance, change a few attendance requirements, and even exclude attendance for that section.
Nothing seems to work. Got any suggestions or solutions?
Once the school year has started and teachers have entered attendance for students enrolled in a section, you can not go in and change the periods that the section is meeting. You’re only option at this point is to create a new section with the correct expression, drop the students from the old section, and then enroll them in the new section.
@NititohirWe usually advise leaving it just to make sure we don't orphan any associated records. You can assign it to a dummy staff account if you get teacher complaints.
So why would we get this message if school hasn't started and no attendance has been marked?
If anyone has any advice about that it would be appreciated. Marta Ellsworth
If you are seeing the message in the screenshot, it is just a boilerplate warning.
@MartaEChanging the section number is not altering the expression, but you should be able to do that even if attendance has been entered. The system will not allow you to change the section number if there is already a section with the same number you are trying to change it to.
