Attendance data can be uploaded to Otus for use in analytics and report cards. This article will help you prepare an export of your data for upload to Otus.
Filling in the Otus Template
Using an export of your data, you'll need to fill out a template to upload the information into Otus.
Please click here to download the .CSV template that you'll use to organize your existing data.
Data in all columns is required unless otherwise specified.
Student Email (Column A, required): the students' email addresses must be the ones that are used for their Otus accounts.
Teacher Email (Column B, optional):
This column is not technically required, but can be used if helpful.
If choosing to use this column, this email address must be that of the main teacher, not co-teacher.
This email address must be one of an active teacher account in Otus.
