The Edit Feature allows the instructor to change date and times, cancel, reactivate, and delete individual attendance sessions

Edit Sessions

When an attendance session has been created, a pencil icon will be displayed to the right of the session's date and time.

Reactivate Session

Re-activating a session allows you to reinstate a cancelled session.

A deleted session is completely removed from the Attendance tool.
