Attendance – Editing Reason for Change of Mark

Editing the Reason for Change of Mark

 A default reason for change of mark must be defined as part of the set up process (Tools | Setups | Attendance Setup).  However, if the default reason for change of mark is not appropriate for all marks that have been changed, individual reasons for change can be edited.

Searching for Changed Marks

2. A default date range of ‘from one month ago to yesterday’ is displayed. If a different date range is required, enter the appropriate dates in the From and to fields or click the associated Calendar buttons and select the required dates.
