If you’ve been a Qwickly Attendance Plus or Qwickly Attendance Pro licensee, you know the absence limits feature is not a new feature. Since the launch of Absence limits, there have been some enhancements that have been requested by other users and they have now come to fruition! Absence limits allows users to set a value to indicate the number of absences a student can have until they are categorized as having reached the limit. These new enhancements to an already powerful feature have just made Qwickly Attendance Plus and Pro that much more useful.
New for Instructors:
Enabled at the administrative level, instructors can now set the number of absences allowed by students before they are notified. In the image below, you can see the instructor chose for the students to be notified once they reach 2 absences, 3 absences, and 5 absences.
Instructors can now enable email notifications for students who have reached their absence limits. These email templates can be customized at the institutional or instructor level, depending on the institution's policies. In the image below, you can see an example of an instructor setting up the email template for students who reach the absence limit. The email template can include variables that will be filled in automatically, such as the student's name, course name, absence limit, number of absences, and consequences of exceeding the absence limit.
