This autoattend block is modification of the Attendance block by Mr. Dmitry Pupinin (v1.0.8, 2007). In addition to the original manual mode, automatic attendance mode (from the access log of Moodle) and semi-automatic attendance mode (user clicks a link) are also possible.

These Auto Attendance block and module are modification of the Attendance block/module of Mr. Dmitry Pupinin (v1.0.8, 2007).

In addition to the manual attendance mode to take attendance manually the original, automatic attendance mode (from the access log of Moodle) and semi-automatic attendance mode (user clicks a link) are also possible.

I strongly recommend a combination of Auto Attendance block (autoattend) and Auto Attendance module (autoattendmod).

15 March  2016
I released new support module (homeroom module).  
homeroom module displays all students's attendances of the all courses.

    Hi
    We just added the auto attendance block. However, we found out the auto attendance block time is inaccurate by 2hrs.
    That occurs when the user is admin or teacher. We could not fix this problem.

    any help?

    Make sure that you have "date.timezone" variable correctly defined with your local value in php.ini.

    "php.ini" is the main configuration file of PHP. It is located in /etc/ folder in Linux; I don't know what's its location in Windows (and i'm happy with it smile ). You need to have root privileges in the server to modify this file.

    Bye.

    Hello,

    Im using mod and block 2.4.2 with Moodle 2.8.5. Thanks to Fumikazu Iseki and all the contributors for their work.

    Few things:
    1. Is there a way to set the Description when creating multiple sessions?
    2. Downloaded Excel files are corupt. However, I am able to open them using the Repair and Open function in Excel.
    3. When updating a session, I get the following error/warring message:

    You should really redirect before you start page output •line 789 of \lib\outputrenderers.php: call to debugging()
    •line 2649 of \lib\weblib.php: call to core_renderer->redirect_message()
    •line 162 of \blocks\autoattend\updateSession.php: call to redirect()

    This normal/ok to ignore?

    Regards.

    hi,

    1. If descriptions are same messages, I think you can easily modify sorce code.
    If you want to describe different descriptions, please modify each sessions at "edit session" page.

    2. What version of Excel do you use? I think it is due to BOM header for UTF-8.
    Old version Excel can not read UTF-8 file with BOM header. But this is also possible easy to modify.

    3. This is normal action. Please disable the debug mode of Moodle.
    "Administration Block" -> "Site administration" -> "Development" -> "Debugging" -> check off "Display debug messages"

    Thanks

    Sorry, I made a mistake. This is the case of CVS file.
    Please tell me version of your Excel

    Hi,

    I use Microsoft Excel 2010, too.
    I updated to Moodle-2.8.5+, and I have tested the Excel download function
    But, I was not able to confirm the bug.

    Sorry, I have no ideas.

    I have installed it and i am pretty amazed with the idea.. but i cant seem to make it work. although i havent tried the auto method, but semi-auto is not working for me.

    when i have created sessions, how do I open a session for taking attendance?i just click on "take attendance" red circle. i think that's it. but where does the user get the link?

    Sorry for late.

    Simplest method is that you install mod_autoattendmod and you make a instance at your cource.
    Let a student click that, please.

    When it was schooltime, a key word input screen is shown to that automatically.

    I installed the plugin and played around with it and it was easy to use and seemed to work well. The only thing now is how well will work with 2.9 and 3.0?
    Regards,
    Yvonne
