Settings for Absences and Makeups in the Parent Portal

If your Jackrabbit database is set to track absences you have the option of offering makeups for missed classes.

When you utilize the Parent Portal, you can allow your parents to schedule their students' absences and schedule makeups for missed classes through their portals. 

There are several settings that control a parent's ability to schedule absences and makeups in the Parent Portal.

Makeup Settings
Define how eligibility for makeups is determined and whether or not there is a time limit on when makeups are offered. 
Tools menu > Parent Portal > Settings Select the Show Student Absences/Attendance check box, in the Family Information Settings, to add an Absences or Attendance tab in the student record within the portal.
Parent Portal Absence & Makeup Settings
Control whether parents can schedule absences in the Parent Portal, define a scheduling window, and choose which past absences will display.

Will you allow your parents to schedule makeups? If so, determine which classes display for makeup selection. Define when makeups can be scheduled and if they can be canceled.
Family record > Contact record > Portal InformationControl a contact's ability to manage absences and makeups in the parent portal.
This setting will default to selected (= yes) when you opt to allow parents to schedule absences &/or makeups in the Parent Portal Absence & Makeup Settings. Clear the checkbox to remove the ability for a specific contact.
