Unable to submit attendance via Seating Chart view on PowerSchool

I understand there was an update to PowerSchool on Friday, December 3rd (or maybe it was Friday, November 26th).  I am now unable to submit attendance via the Seating Chart view.  There is an orange triangle and note that says "Please select an attendance code for each student" under the Submit button which I am unable to select.  I have been unable to select the Submit button under all circumstances, including:


(1)  When I click the drop down menu for all students and select the appropriate attendance code.

(2)  When I click the drop down menu for the students available for me to (as the remaining students have been coded by the front office and I am unable to change the code) and select the appropriate attendance code.


I am still able to submit attendance via the Single Day view.  However, the recent update has made a perfectly good part of this platform unusable to me!  Is there any way to remedy this?  I spoke with my district PowerSchool administrator and they had no answers for me.

@ailcampb  Obviously, I do not know which version of PS you are on, but this is a known issue in PowerSchool:


This is a known issue in PowerSchool.  The teacher can try to use Firefox to get around the issue or they can typically choose the attendance code from the drop down at the top > click in the picture > Submit the page.  This issue is corrected in the newest version of PowerSchool.
