Spider – Absence Entry / Roll Marking status drop down list can be made read only or hidden

Available in Spider version 2013.11.14 and above.

PCSchool has added the ability to make the absence status drop down list in Absence Entry ‘Read Only’ or ‘Hidden’.

This option can be used by schools who want teachers to be restricted to selecting from four status buttons when marking the attendance roll ( for example Not Marked, Unexplained, Present, Late for Class and one other), while the teachers can still see the other statuses entered in by the Back Office staff / Attendance Officer it will be in ‘Read Only’ mode.Spider - Disable Absence Status Dropdown List

The ‘spiderabsentrollv2.xml’ file found in the PCSchool\Documents folder on the server must be modified accordingly:SpiderAbsentrollV2.xmlClick here for information on how to customise the Absent Entry status buttons.
