Attendance Types define the parameters of the ‘class’ such as the age or grade range. Each Attendance Type must have one or more frequency, which defines the specific time that attendance type is active. You can assign a group or tag to an Attendance Type, indicating the occurrences are created for the attendance type. Frequencies determine the availability of the Attendance Type. An attendance type can only be associated with a single group or tag, but a single group or tag may have multiple attendance types assigned to it. When managing a large number of attendance types, setting the frequencies and labels for each attendance type can be time consuming. Consider setting frequencies and labels at the Attendance Type Category level.
