Intro to Custom Attendance Codes

For schools that need to track custom attendance codes for internal use or external reporting, the Custom Attendance Codes app is a helpful expansion of the Attendance module. Not only can you create your own attendance statuses ("Half-Day", "Study Abroad", etc.) but Attendance codes can be applied to date ranges, including future date ranges. This means you can let your teachers know when a student will be absent due to vacation and travelling. Here’s a quick rundown:
