Enter attendance manually
Under some circumstances, manually entering attendance may actually be more convenient than by scanning, such as when entering the attendance of a group of students who attended an event. There are four methods to enter attendance manually:
- Student ID number. Manually enter the student’s ID number into TaskMaster instead of scanning it.
- Attendance calendar. Enter attendance on individual students into TaskMaster using a graphic calendar format.
- Manual/group. Use to enter attendance when scanning is not used or to enter attendance for a group event, such as a camp. Use TaskMaster to print signup sheets for event, attendance muster sheets, or attendance muster cards, and then use them to take attendance manually. To manually enter the attendance into TaskMaster: enter event date, construct an event, create a list of students according to chosen criteria (such as by rank), select students on the list who attended the event, and then click to enter all the attendance at one time.
- Special entry. Use to enter attendance into TaskMaster for some special reason that is not otherwise provided, such as to add credits to a student's attendance due to some error. To use the special entry: select a student, select a data, enter the event, enter the credits, and click to record the attendance.
