[Attendance] show all dates for each student without report

Problem statement:

I would like to suggest an improvement for the attendance tool. When I click on an individual student, I can only see the number of classes they missed, not the dates for when they missed class. I would like to see the information that currently can only be obtained from requesting a report: I would like to see which days they missed, not just how many, but which ones. At our college, when we drop a student (for inattendance), it asks us when did they last attend. I have to dig through information in Canvas to find that out. It should be available right there in the attendance tool.

Proposed solution:

My proposed solution would be: in the Roll Call screen, when I click on the More button, to have a small grid calendar there to see which dates they were absent and which dates they were present. Please make this possible. Thank you.

Thanks for your submission! Based on what's being asked here, I've identified a theme that I think this would fit well with. It's called Improved UI Controls and Usability - Additional filtering and view options. I've associated this idea to the theme.
