Edit Attendance Records

If an attendance error is caught quickly, staff and administrators can quickly fix the error through their brightwheel account on the app. Keep in mind that Attendance and Check-in are not available on the web, so these steps need to be completed on the app.

Checking Students In & Out

If a parent or other student contact has dropped a student off without checking them in or picked them up without checking them out, staff and administrators can record these actions via Attendance mode on the brightwheel app.

  1. Log into a staff or administrator account on the brightwheel app

  2. Select the Room where the check-in or check-out should have occurred

  3. Tap Attendance

  4. Tap on the student or students' profile(s), and then tap Check in or Check Out at the bottom

Keep in mind that when using Attendance mode to record check-in data, Check-in Kiosk settings like Digital Signature, Health Screen, and Drop-Off Forms won't be available for staff and administrators to complete.

Correct Check-in Date & Time

Administrators and staff can edit the date and time of Attendance actions at any time through the student's activity feed on the web or on the app.

Add Historical Attendance Records

  2. Select the Room where the check-in should have occurred

  3. Tap Attendance

  4. Tap on the student or students' profile(s), and then tap Check in at the bottom

  5. Tap on the student or students' profile(s) again, and then tap Check out at the bottom

  6. Exit Attendance mode by tapping Close

  7. Tap on the student's profile

  8. Scroll through the activity list to find the newly added check-in and check-out activity records.

  9. Tap on each record, and select Edit Activity

  10. Tap the pencil icon near the original time and date, and select the correct time and date.
    Please Note: Check-in/out records cannot be logged for a future time or date.

  11. Tap Done when this is correct

  12. Tap Update Activity to save changes
