Creating recurring absence events for groups

You can record recurring absence events if a group of students will repeatedly be absent at a specified time, for example if they have a recurring excursion.

Recurring absence events must happen on the same day and time each week. It is not possible to create a recurring absent event that recurs each fortnight, month, or number of days.

To record a recurring absence event for a group:

  1. Create a bulk absence event with the appropriate absence event type. For example, an excursion. See Recording group absences in bulk.
  2. Click .
    The Recurring Absence Event window is displayed.
  3. Select the date that the absence event should start to recur in the Recur daily from field.
  4. Select the date that the absence event should stop recurring in the Until field.
  5. Select which days of the week the absence event should recur.
  6. Click .
    The absent event is scheduled to recur.
