Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit BBEM-I-194 Automatic attendance reminder.

Send notifications to teachers that they did not record attendance for one of their classes. Merged

It would improve attendance tracking and compliance without having to run a report to see if teachers are consistently taking attendance. Perhaps give the option for a popup that keeps coming up until they record attendance for a class.

    This is an excellent idea. It would be super helpful to have an automated feature that notifies instructors to submit attendance if they have not already done so at a specific point in a class period.

    I would welcome an auto generated text message to be sent to the teacher who have not taken attendance - more than likely they have not logged into MySchoolApp yet and would not see the pop-up. However, the pop-up is a great place to start as well.

    The pop-up idea is nice, but it's amazing what teachers can ignore. I don't know how effective that would be in the long term. What we do on our campus is email the teacher and CC their administrative oversight every time their attendance is not taken within the first five minutes of class. We are able to do this though a custom program we created using data that is pulled through the Sky API. I definitely think this would be a good feature to build in to the platform, but it needs to be more than a pop-up. I would love for it to be the type of pop-up that prohibits them from doing anything else in the system until the attendance is taken. An email reminder is also an option, but just make sure you can include more than just the user in the email.
