Attend HE

Attend Core
Track attendance without timetabling

  • Configurable to almost every aspect, this system works with your existing processes, hierarchies and reporting requirements.
  • Works best in situations where you have timetable data, however it can work as the system of record as well if needed.
  • If your goal is early alerting, then use the inbuilt 'Revive' module (optional), or have early alerts generated by Attend HE in your system of choice.

Attendance entry

Configurable statuses
