How to mark a child as absent?

Modified on Mon, 24 Oct 2022 at 04:45 PM

You or your staff can mark a child as absent through the web portal, Cheqdin or Notebook mobile apps. 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 so you just need to update it in one place.

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

Defining an Absentee Category using the web portal: 

  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.

Once you have defined the absentee categories that you wish to use for your centre, you add the absentee details.  

Click on 'Add Absentee

Select the room and child and enter the details. Click 'Save'.


You can also mark an absentee from the Cheqdin or notebook mobile apps, please see the articles:

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.
