Creating an Attendance Scheme

Attendance schemes provide the criteria for marking attendance in a register. Each attendance register uses one attendance scheme, which you assign when creating a new register. The register defines the applicable users and sessions, and the attendance scheme defines the attendance statuses that you can give to users for each session.
