Is it possible in the Attendance module to mark someone as having an 'excused' absence or at least leave comments re: attendance?
Gregg, unfortunately no and no. Attendance in Canvas is kinda of limited. You could use badges in Attendance to designate that someone was excused. It would be similar to this, but with a slightly different spin - Hacking Roll Call Attendance.
I hope this helps!
