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.

    This auto attendance is applicable for events? Those we make in event calendar.

    This block does not support to an event calendar.
    There is no need for event calendar function to me.
    However, if there's many people smoothly need the function, I will implement the event function. smile

    Hi Mr Iseki, is there a particular setting I need to make for the block reports to display the students ? ...I have students enrolled in a course but I can't see them on the Auto Attendance block reports, it's as though the addon does not work on my localhost site. I am running moodle 2.5.

    Furthermore, when I have the autoattendance module installed as well, and I try to have a student access it, it says No Guest access allowed. I totally do not get what could be wrong here. Do you mind lending me a hand here Mr Iseki ?

    I think what I am trying to ask here, is how do I add Students of which their attendance will be tracked because the ones already enrolled on the course the Auto attendance block is displayed are not appearing on the reports ? ; the list of "All students" is empty, what do I need to do to populate it?

    Hi,

    It is the specification of my attendance block and module.
    It takes the attendance of students who exists really.

    What does "attendance of guest" mean?
    I think that I am meaningless as for it.
    The same may be said of "student enrolled".

    Please make a test user and add him/her to the course.
    Then, please change user to him/her and check attendance.

    >> what do I need to do to populate it?

    Please register students to the courses. Or please use the auto-registration function.

    Mr Iseki, tell me, from Moodle default settings; the only role that can setup the Autoattendance block is the Administrator role, right ? ....the reason I am asking this is, that I have all the roles in my moodle system and the only one that has access is the Administrator. Is this normal, and how can I solve it ?

    "attendance of guest" does not mean anything, we can ignore that part. Help me with the roles, I am quite new and they seem to be the cause of the students not being registered on the Autoattendance block as the only role that has access seems to be the Administrator. Not even the course creator has access to this block, it's really confusing.

    Students were already registered on the course when I installed the autoattendance block and module, but it seems to not be picking them up, even when the cron is ran every five minutes.

    No, editing teacher can setup it, too.


    >> Not even the course creator has access to this block, it's really confusing.

    Does it mean that attendance of "course creator" is not displayed?

    If it is so...
    This block take attendace of students who only have "student role".
    Attendance of users who have "(editing) teacher role does not take.

    If it is not so...
    Can you show me error messages?

    This is what the Administrator sees on his block on the course:

    And this is what everyone else sees on their block with regards to the autoattendance block:

    Now with regards to the autoattend Module, this is what students on the course see when they try to go into the activity:

    Please help.

    For completeness and piece of mind, these are the people enrolled on the course, and this also displays their roles on the course:

    Please help.

    Facilitator has a "role archetype" of a teacher(editing), an internal moderator is a course creator, and learner that of student in moodle default settings terms.

    Please help.
