In today's release notes, 9/11/23, it was announced that "For classes that have Attendance recorded, the block and meeting time can no longer be edited." We have an enrichment rotation in which we change blocks every few weeks for several classes. Please consider allowing schools to modify blocks and meeting times even after attendance has been recorded like we have been able to do up until this point.
I want to include the original information as to why this information was changed: It was necessary to reduce 'disconnected' or 'orphaned' attendance entries that were caused when the meeting time associated with an attendance entry no longer exists. This caused discrepancies in attendance reporting throughout the system.
Thank you everyone that provided information on your use cases for needing to change the blocks. Based on those use cases we were able to determine an alternative implementation. As of 10/31/23, blocks on class sections will be editable again. When you change a block, it will only update future meetings, while leaving the past meetings at the original time. Thus, attendance will stay associated with an actual meeting, while still allowing the flexibility to make adjustments when something changes partway through the term.
