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

homeroom module displays all students's attendances of the all courses.

    Hi,

    I have recognized this problem.

    "Learner" fails in it also that archetype is Student.
    I will correct this problem.
    Please wait a little.

    Thanks.

    Please try to use 2.1.10
    This version supports archetype of role.

    But archetype of "Learner" must be Student.

    Thanks.

    Great stuff Mr Iseki thank you for your help, now the archetype of "Learner" can see something on the Autoattandance block:



    I am still testing it, I just wanted to give you quick feedback for now. So I will be in touch, with some more feedback as the day goes.

    I think there is now a problem with the state or the actual noting of attendance. The state " Not Started (0/3)" does not change, if the session is Automatic and it also does not change when it is Sem-automatic, and Learners do not get any link they can click on or something to sign the autoattendance register. What could I be doing wrong here ?




    Please help once again.

    Excellent, I see that now, it makes total sense. When I put the time of the sessions in line with the one you indicated above it works like a charm!, this is new upgrade works for me. But now, I am in a different timezone, as my confusion is evidence to this. Now, how do I set this autoattendance block to my TimeZone ?

    Please note that I read the Help icon info. , and I am not logged with user accounts that have the Administrator Achetype , I am using Manager and Course Creator and Editing teacher but still get a time that is not in my timeZone. How do we go about solving this discrepancy or difference of times ?

    >> But now, I am in a different timezone, as my confusion is evidence to this. Now, how do I set this autoattendance block to my TimeZone ?

    Ummm....
    Please try to specify the time zone of a system?

    "Site administration" -> "Location" -> "Location settings" -> "Default timezone timezone"



    >> I am using Manager and Course Creator and Editing teacher but still get a time that is not in my timeZone.

    I noticed that 2.1.10 has bug. With this version, Manager and Course Creator can not access this block.
    Does your Manager and Course Creator have permission of Administrator?

    (I will version up to 2.1.11 soon)

    >>"Site administration" -> "Location" -> "Location settings" -> "Default timezone timezone"

    This is correctly set, my default time zone is "Africa/Johannesburg" and I force this timezone as "Africa/Johannesburg" as well. But the autoattendance block seems to ignore my timezone still, are you sure this is not a bug ?

    The block seems to disregard any settings done by the Administrator on timezones settings, what could I be doing wrong here as it ignores both "Africa/Johannesburg" and UTC+2?

    From the Help Icon next to the time on the autoattendance block
    >>>When a general user's (teacher) time does not correspond, probably, it is bug.Please send me bug report.

    I am using a General User (Teacher) and the time does not correspond, so this is a bug ?

    Could it be that the timezone is hardcoded somewhere in the code of the autoattendance block?
