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 plugin is part of set Auto attendance.

    Superb working plugin. But yesterday I faced a problem while I was taking the backup of courses. It was conflicting with the backup. While I uncheck the block. It backup worked.
    Moreover, it would be helpful if you could add attendance upload function as well. Due to backup failure, while restoring the course we are in problem with previous data restoration in the plugin.

    Autoattendace consists of block and module.
    Is the "Backup of Attendance Data" checked at "Options of Auto Attendance module" ?
    If it is checked, backup will be taken regardless of the block.

    I have error "Error: Unable to parse AMOS response" at "Developer zone"

    I also faced the same problem before.
    I seem that this error occurs when plugin contains multiple language files.
    Recently, it has been recommended that each plugin include only one language file for English and that other language files be provided through the AMOS site.
    Language files provided through the AMOS site are stored in the moodledata directory.

    Thanks for the update. New update is working fine. I have a small suggestion. Could you please include all present and all absent option. It is helpful while manually taking attendance.

    Hello, is a GIT version control going to be added to the source control url? It would be A LOT of help.

    Hi! Many people nowadays attend classes exclusively online. Professors like me want students to come in during the day to look at new content and directions when they want. Now we have a problem: if I put the session between 00:00 - 23:55 (by the way, why couldn't it be until 24:00 or 23:60?), The maximum delay time is 180 minutes, which means that every day I have to fix their arrivals because they are all told that they are late. Please open the possibility of delay until 24h. Thank you!

    Fumikazu Iseki, you are a hero to every Moodle teacher do online teaching. This works great, and it works in Moodle 3.8. I made some handouts in English and Japanese to train teachers in this. How or where do I upload them?

    Problem 例外(exception)-Call to undefined function atoattend_use_summertime() is occured.

    Funtion atoattend_use_summertime() is not exist in file autoattend/locallib.php.
    This function is called next 3 lines in this file.
    2040: $use_summertime = atoattend_use_summertime($couseid);
    2086: $use_summertime = atoattend_use_summertime($couseid);

    Hello everyone.
    I just installed Auto attendance and I love it!
    My challenge right now is the delete button. I have tried deleting one of the session I created earlier in one of my test courses but nothing happens. Not even refreshing the page.
    Am using Moodle 3.8 and I install Auto attendance version 2.6
    Someone to kindly advise me please.

    I use auto attendance to automatically record student attendance. Sometimes this plugin does not work, there are some students who are recorded as absent even though they have logged in and entered the course in the specified session. How could this happen? what should I do to overcome it?

    I think the best solution would be to have the ability to copy a students previous attendance over when you change a students class within the autoattend block.

    It is a great plugin. Is there any way to link this with the existing groups - i.e. I have multiple classes, how can I separate the attendances? E.g. with quiz results you can look at the results by group.

    This misses few student always. When I check the log student has attended but it never reports present. I used both automatic and semi-automatic but no avail.
