Faster Attendance


Right now, taking Attendance in Canvas takes a lot longer than it should and it's a waste of time for teachers because we have to click on every individual student and mark them as "not absent", wait for the "email" pop-up to disappear, before clicking the "back" button and starting again. 

It would be extremely useful if an option was added that allows us to mark all the students as present/ not absent of a class/ group at the same time. Then, we could go back and only click on the individual students that were absent rather than clicking on every single student. It would save so much time!

If you need further clarification, please let me know.
