A: With the new Users and Groups feature, a teacher would have to have the 'Access to All student profiles' permission in order to take attendance for another teacher's class, or to mark attendance for a student that is not in one of their classes. 

An admin staff member is able to take attendance for any class/group/individual by default. 

Steps to take attendance: 

  • Navigate to the teaching group (search for it or find it on the teacher timetable)
  • Actions
  • Mark Attendance & Save
