Updating a child's status to 'absent', 'off sick', or 'on holiday'
To record a child's absence:
Head to the Overview and select the child/children who is off sick, or on holiday, by clicking on their photo.
You will get the normal status bar on the right hand side, where you can select the 'sick', 'absent', or 'on holiday' status
Once you click on 'Absent' you can note the period this applies to and any notes (such as Covid isolating, for example)
You will see the appropriate icon on their profile photo (and this will be greyed out), as well as on their activity feed.
In the image below, we can see that Eli is off sick, and Gary is on holiday.
