Taking Registration is easy on Apple iOS, Android and Windows 8.1 devices*

Taking Attendance

You can take attendance by name, year/group, staff, MIS groups (including AM or PM session registers for custom groups of students) or by house (if applicable).

Using the traffic light system, click in the pink area (left) to mark students absent, click in the white area (middle) to assign the appropriate attendance mark and click in the green area (right) to mark students present. You can mark all students in bulk by clicking the 'Mark All' button in the top right hand corner and then choosing the relevant mark to assign.

Student Details

Select the 'Students' module from the home screen.

You are then able to view students by name, year/reg/group, subject, timetable, custom group or house (if applicable).

Simply select the chosen student to see a student record that gives you an overview of attendance, timetables, subjects, parent/guardian contact details, medical and behavioural information as well as MIS flags and current lesson information. From this record you can also access direct contact methods either from the device itself or via integration with Messenger v5.

Student Timetable

You are able to view the timetable (including a weekly view) for both students and staff.

The current session is always shown in green and at the touch of a few buttons you are easily able to locate students or members of staff.
