I'd like to know how to manually add people to the class roll in the Attendance feature. Need to add my TAs and a visiting student to the seating chart.
Gregg, no, the only way to have someone show up in attendance is for them to be in your class (People) list.
Hope this helps!
Do you know if there is a way to mark someone as having an excused absence?
That would be great too,
Unfortunately, no. Attendance in Canvas is rather limited. I think I already answered this on a different thread, but you could hack this and make
it work using badges - Hacking Roll Call Attendance.
You might also consider voting and commenting on this feature idea - Attendance Overhaul. Personally I’m hoping for some improvements to Attendance. :-)
