    That's cheating
    @victory2012 - the easiest thing i've done is to demo it for staff. They were always complaining it took too long and they had computer troubles etc. I gave them a demo in one staff meeting and for the basics it was really quick and easy.

    1 - double click the class on your timeline.
    2 - select all kids, mark as present.
    3 - adjust absences
    4 - save

    5 - browse / close and reopen for other classes

    They have handouts that show and explain the SIMS Toolbar along the top, and which icon does what as well as a shortened list of attendance codes which are usually stuck behind the computer.

    You can follow up with extra hints and tips later.

    1 - add additional info columns
    2 - click photo and have it change live as you go down the list
    3 - quick right click behaviour ( if you set it up )
    4 - short way to enter behaviour / achievements in bulk.
