What to do when taking attendance by list and the summary area on the right is blocking the table cells for marking attendance.


Elementary teachers are finding that when taking attendance by list, the floating summary area on the right is blocking access to marking attendance for the current day. This is pictured below.

Solution 1

Hover your mouse over the floating class information box on the right side of your screen. On the left side of this box you will see a tab for showing or hiding this box. Click once to hide the box. You can click a second time to show the box again if desired.

Solution 2

At the bottom of the floating summary area you will see an "Attendance List Configuration" area. Change the "calendar display order" to Ascending. This will place the current date right next to the student name as pictured below. With the current date right next to the student name, you are also less likely to mark attendance for the wrong student.
