How to mark a student or child as absent?

Modified on Mon, 06 May 2024 at 02:55 PM

A centre admin or staff member can mark a student as absent through the web portal, Cheqdin, or Notebook mobile apps. Once a student has been marked as absent in the web portal, the information will be automatically updated in real-time in 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 student 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 at your centre, you can add the absentee details.  

Click on 'Add Absentee'.

Select the room and student 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 student is marked as absent, a 'red crossed circle' icon will appear next to their name. This information will be displayed in the web portal as well as in the mobile apps.   

If a student 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.
