Mark attendance for student without specifying the reason

As of now, while marking attendance for a batch in the attendance register, once we click on a marking cell, a modal box opens and asks for the details like reason and Forenoon/Afternoon (for Daily attendance mode). On submitting after entering the details correctly, the attendance is marked successfully. So, the entire attendance marking process for a student is completed in at least 2 steps. By adding the “Rapid Attendance Mode” feature, we provide the user an added option to complete the attendance marking process in a single step.

Student’s Admission Number is displayed in Exam Marks Entry pages
As of now, in different marks entry pages in Fedena, a student is only identified by his/her name. Since there can be more than one student with the same name in the same batch, it will create inconvenience for the user to identify the student for whom the marks are being entered. Hence, we now show Admission Number along with the student’s name in each such page (including Coscholastic result entry, FA scores pages) 
Student’s Admission Number is displayed in Attendance Register
As of now, in the attendance register page in Fedena, a student is only identified by his/her name. Since there can be more than one student with the same name in the same batch, it will create inconvenience for the user to identify the student for whom the attendance is being marked. Hence, we now show the Admission Number (within brackets) along with the student’s name in the attendance register. 
Class timing intervals are of 1 minute duration to allow different class timings
Previously, class timings were set at 5 minute intervals. All schools may not follow 5 minute intervals and hence, we have reduced the interval duration to 1 minute. 
Classrooms allocation

This feature gives the provision to allocate classrooms for all students based on timetable entries. Classrooms could be allotted in different configured buildings.

Attachments uploaded during Applicant Registration are shown in student’s profile

At present, the additional attachments uploaded during student registration are not saved when students are allotted for a course by applicant admin. This feature enables saving additional attachments while allotting the student for a course. For this, the privileged user has to enable the ‘Transfer attachments while allotting’ option while creating the registration for a course. While allotting students for that course, the attachments will be saved. The uploaded documents will be shown inside Student profile > More > Registration Docs. The users can view, download or delete the documents if required.
