    Dear Fumikazu,
    Thank you for your reply and good will. I am in doubt if I should have placed this request under the Auto Attendance Block.
    We use the Auto Attendance Block in Automatic mode today. But as I have tested the Auto Attendance Mod, we could just as well use this.

    Currently using 2.4.2 and am unable to backup course grades from this or any other activity when this mod is present in the course.

    Has this been fixed in 2.4.4?

    I add backup and e-mail for student functions.

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

    "Attendance has been ERROR taken!!!" is error of "update DB" with semi-auto mode.


    $result = $DB->update_record('autoattend_students', $rec);
    if ($result) {
    if ($sentemail) autoattend_email_user($att, $user, $status);
    $loginfo = SEMIAUTO_SUBMIT_LOG.',id='.$att->id.',user='.$stdnt->studentid.',status='.$rec->status.',ip='.$rec->ipaddress;
    $event = autoattend_get_event($context, 'submit', '', $loginfo);
    redirect($wwwBlock.'/index.php?course='.$course->id.'&class='.$classid, get_string('attendsuccess', 'block_autoattend'), 1);
    else {
    $loginfo = SEMIAUTO_SUBMIT_LOG.',id='.$att->id.',user='.$stdnt->studentid.',DB Error';
    $event = autoattend_get_event($context, 'submit', '', $loginfo);
    redirect($wwwBlock.'/index.php?course='.$course->id.'&class='.$classid, get_string('attenderror', 'block_autoattend'), 5);

    Please set Moodle to Debug mode, and send outputed messages to me.

    Hi, I just added auto attend to Moodle 3.03 and I can't restore an old backup I made using Moodle 2.85. The error message I get is

    Backup is missing XML file: [tempdir]/backup

    I tried deleting references to autoattend from the mbz file and reuploading, and I tried deleting the auto attend plugin, but nothing has worked. I have several courses from the same period backed up that I haven't tried restoring yet, but I'm guessing they won't work. I will try later.

    When you take a backup, did you use more than autoattendmod v2.5.0 and setup backup mod?
    v2.4.x does not support backup function.

    Hi, we are also unable to backup a course with v2.5.0 with moodle v3.0.3. Only by deleting the block are we able to backup the course. Error message:
    Table "autoattendmod" does not exist.

    Please install mod_autoattendmod, and create a instance in the course.
