Attendance Officers can use this guide to monitor missing registers for today. In this guide we will review:

Access: The minimum permissions required to access the Todays Missing Registers page is found in the Attendance Module of Config > Setup > Roles & Permissions.


See also How to Manage Attendance

Viewing Todays Missing Registers

From the left Menu go to Modules > Attendance > Registers > Today’s Missing Registers.


This will open the below page.

Todays Missing Registers

The Date defaults to today however, this can be changed, check or uncheck Auto Refreshed. The Auto Refresh is set for 60 seconds by default.

Select the Periods to be viewed and under Status, tick the boxes to be viewed.

Click the Refresh button for immediate results.

Note: The Update Headers button will update the Registers based on the Period/Header where a Code was entered in the system.

So if a Teacher was absent and the Attendance Officer used Manage Attendance instead of taking their Register, Update Headers will pull the marks from Manage Attendance to update the Register and mark it as Completed.

Why are Some Completed Registers Showing as Missing?

There are two main reasons that a Register that looks as though it is Completed may show as Missing.

The first thing to check for is any Clashes in the timetables of the Students with memberships in the Class. For more information on how to check this please see How to Run the Timetable Clashes Report for Students.

Another reason that a Completed Register may show as missing is if one or more of the Attendance Marks has been entered somewhere other than the class register, for example in Manage Attendance. If this is the case, selecting Update Headers at the top of the Todays Missing Registers page will update the Status of the Register.
