Use Absence Limit in Percentage (Limit based on projected hours)

Updated on December 15, 2022

Academic Settings / Attendance Settings / General Settings / Limits Controls / Use Absence Limit in Percentage (Limit based on projected hours)

Here, you can enable the use of percentages (attendance or absence percentage) instead of absolute numbers in all absence limit control tools.

*In order for the setting to work properly, you need to configure the “Limit Controls” section.


As an example, the absence check is based on subject per marking period.

Setting -> Active

The subject Limit of absences is 70%

The student Austin Ricardo has 66.67% Absence ratio, so he is passed because 66.67 < 70 of absence limit. (Figure 1)

Figure 1


Setting -> Inactive

The comparison will not be based on the rate of absences, but on the student’s total number of absences, so you must change the absence limit from 70% to the number of absences.

The subject limit is 2 absences, so the student fails because the limit is 2 > 3 absences. (Figure 2)
