Introduction to Absence Management
Elentra's absence management tool is for managing attendance on learning events. This optional feature is turned off by default. Contact Elentra Support to enable this feature.
Absence Management functionality includes:
- The ability to define allowable absences
- Learners can request approval for absences
- Staff & Faculty can manage absences requests
This tool is in addition to the Leave of Absence features within the student user profile, the Leave Tracking tool, and the Granular Clinical Event Attendance Tracking, both within the Clinical Experience module. Currently, the Absence Management tool does not sync with a learner's dashboard calendar (excused absences will still display as events on the calendar).
