Only allow attendance marking for days when class actually meets

    Currently in CANVAS, you are allowed to mark attendance for a date when class does not meet. For example, let's say today is Tuesday, and my class only meets on Mondays and Wednesdays, and I want to mark yesterdays attendance. The current default is today's date, so if I forget to change it back one day to Monday, CANVAS will allow me to mark the roll for today, even though my class didn't meet today. Not a big glitch, but If teachers were allowed to see the whole semester snapshot of attendance (like in BrightSpace) and be able to mark attendance for only the days when class is in session that would be extremely helpful.
