3. Upload the file and click Bulk Assign


Via the Attendance > Homeroom Attendance tab, Homeroom Advisors will see their list of assigned students to mark attendance.

Note: if substitute recording has been enabled within your Attendance Setings, Homeroom Advisors will not only see those students they are assigned to, but also any student that is in a class that they are a teacher in.


Via the Gradebook, Homeroom Advisors will be displayed beside the Homeroom Teacher Comments of their assigned students.


If "Advisor" is enabled in the report template, the Homeroom Advisor will also be displayed on your term reports.
