Blocks: Auto Attendance

Maintained by with daughter Fumikazu Iseki
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).

Feedback please!! 
If there are only few feedbacks, we can't continue the this research and development!!
There are only few feedbacks (only 6) from teachers now. (26 Nov. 2015) sad

    Dear Iseki, I use this nice plugin since several years with satisfaction. Updating to moodle 3.0 is wished by all users of this plugin.
    Thanks a lot in advance for this work.

    Perhaps, is this only to change from "module" to "plugin" in version.php of autoattendmod???

    "module" is for old version of moodle.

    Although a little warning comes out, I think it works.

    I implemented e-mail function for students in mod_autoattendmod.
    And I am implementing a backup and restore function in mod_autoattendmod, now.

    Thanks for this working.
    Nice upgrade will be to load classes from Moodle groups. Another one may be to list absent students during a course.
    Thanks a lot and best regards

    I add backup and e-mail for student functions.

    If you want to send e-mail to student about their attendance, please use autoattendmod and check "E-mail Notification to Students" at "Options of Auto Attendance module".
    And please add "Student" to the "autoattendmod:receivemail" capability.

    Can't wait to try the new options, thanks! Have customized this plugin a bit though so updating will be tricky.

    Suggestion: Emailing teachers when attendance "manual" attendance isn't taken?

    Also the list of sessions can grow very long. Maybe change the way sessions are listed (i.e. by month)

    updated and tested. backing up/importing now seems to be working! Thanks Fumikazu!

    Have another request for you smile

    Think it would be possible to add a feature for manual and semi auto sessions that alerts teachers when a class attendance hasn't been taken (modified) by the time the session ends? Something along the lines of if a no student has checked in and a teacher hasn't signed in any student.

    I know for semi auto sessions the session automatically sets students to absent if they haven't checked in by the end of the session so that may be difficult.

    also if along with notifying teachers, if it can also be noted beside the session on the sessions page so teachers/admins can skim through the list and see any missed sessions.

    Hope that all makes sense. I appreciate all the work you have done with this plug in.
