Teachers can take attendance for a class on behalf of another teacher if they have the relevant permissions. Admin users can take attendance on behalf of a teacher by default. 

Step 1

Navigate to the teaching group (search for it or find it on the teacher timetable)

Step 2


Step 3

Mark attendance and save


A teacher needs to have the 'Access to All student profiles' permission in Users and Groups 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 user must add this permission for the teacher.

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