How do I record the last day a user attended a course?

You can record the day a student last attended a course. The last attended date is recorded in the user details page. Dates must be entered for each student individually.

Notes:

  • If your institution is using Profiles, this feature is not currently supported.
  • The last attended date cannot be removed, but it can be modified if necessary. If the date is deleted, it will automatically revert back to the last entered date.
