Academic Settings / Attendance Settings / Attendance Taking / Attendance for Services / Preselected Absence Category
This setting allows you to select an Absence Category to be pre-selected as a default absence category when the end user set a student as absent. The end user may select another category if required.
Example as Administrator
Setting -> Active -> Not known reason
When the Student is absent, the “Category” default text is set to “Not known reason”
Note: A service is enabled for attendance taking only if the “Take Attendance” property is selected on the services form as shown below.
You can start by creating a new one or by editing an existing service.
