Building a group or activity group to assign student to for attendance purposes.

Building a group or activity group to assign student to for attendance purposes.

I am the HS/ MS Secretary- I maintain all attendance records.  During a training a few years back we touch very quickly on how to create a group or activity that we could attach students to and then when taking attendance I could pull up said group (ex: Football, Band, Cheerleading, Baseball) and enter their Activity absence all at once.  Allowing me to not have to enter every student one at a time.  Some days we have several activity groups off of campus and can take me a long time to get all attendance entered before teachers submit their attendance, so I am therefore back tracking and correcting a lot.  I know how to create the activity but not sure how to run it to where all the students I assign to that specific activity attach?  I have not had any luck.  If anyone know and would like to provide the steps I would greatly appreciate it.
