Option to Include Absent Attendance When Running Roll Call Attendance


Current Situation: Our campus is unable to use Canvas's roll call feature for attendance and financial aid purposes because it does not list the courses/people who have not been recorded. This means that our registrar would have to manually check each course for attendance to verify the roll call, which defeats the purpose of using it.

Suggestion: It would be beneficial if there was a check box that would enable the user to include in the list those who have no attendance marked for them, either in the main sheet or a separate one. Then it would be easy to follow up with those professors who have not submitted attendance yet.
