You or your staff can mark a child as absent either through the web portal or via the Cheqdin Mobile App. Once a child has been marked as absent in the 'web portal' it will be automatically updated in real-time to both the Cheqdin and Notebook apps. The web portal and apps talk to each other and the information is updated simultaneously. 

However, before a child is marked as absent, make sure you define an 'absentee category'.


Defining an Absentee Category: 

  1. Go to your 'Home' screen.
  2. Click 'My Dashboard'.
  3. Go to 'Absentee' on the top menu bar of your dashboard.
  4. Click on 'Define Absentee Category' from the drop-down list.


Marking a Child as absent:

To mark a child as absent from the web portal:

  1. In 'My Dashboard', click on 'Absentee
  2. Select 'Manage Absentees'
  3. Click on 'Add Absentee'
  4. Enter the details.
  5. Save and Exit.




Once a child is marked as absent, a 'red crossed circle' icon will appear next to the child's name. This information will be displayed in the web portal as well as in the mobile apps.   

If a child has been marked as absent in error, you can reverse this by deleting the entry in the web portal. Simply click on the 'Delete' icon to remove the record.
