Administrators can control how and when Uncompleted Attendance alerts are sent to Staff in the Date/Time section of the Settings tab.
The settings are grouped by "Daily Attendance" and "Class Attendance" and can be configured to either be sent at a specific time of day or after a certain amount of time has elapsed since the start of the period. Furthermore, the alerts can be configured to notify teachers, too. For example, if a Teacher forgets to take attendance in one of their classes, rather than only alerting Administrators you can tell Gradelink to notify the Teacher directly.
If a Full or Limited Administrator would like to receive Uncompleted Attendance Notifications, they will need to complete the following steps:
- Click on the Staff tab.
- Select the account they would like to activate notifications for.
- Open the Notifications menu. Keep in mind that this menu will only be available for Full and Limited Administrator accounts, not Teachers.
- Check the box labeled "Receive notifications for uncompleted attendance".
If Teachers would like to receive Uncompleted Attendance Notifications, they will need to follow a different process.
The only way for Teachers to receive uncompleted attendance notifications is for an Administrator to check the boxes labeled "Also notify Teachers" on the Date/Time page in the Settings tab. When these settings are active, any Teacher assigned to a class that Gradelink flags as "uncomplete" will receive a copy of the notification that is sent to Administrators.
Note: In order to receive Uncompleted Attendance notifications, please make sure that email addresses have been added for your Staff accounts.
