New in ME 1.18! Elentra now includes an absence management tool that allows administrative staff to define allowable absences, learners to log their absences, and staff or faculty to approve said absences.
The absence management module can be set to on or off in Elentra and is off by default. If you want to use it you need a developer to enable 'absence_enabled' in the settings table of the database.
Please note that the absence management module is in addition to the Leave of Absence tool accessible in a student user's profile, the Leave Tracking tool available in Clinical Experience, and the granular clinical event attendance tracking. The absence management tool described in this section works with attendance as recorded on learning event pages depending on how you complete your absence tool your setup. It does not currently sync to a learner's dashboard calendar (Events or Rotation Schedule view).
