This guide will show you how to configure a Daily Roll Type. To continue setting up your Emergency Roll types & Automatic Roll types, see links at the bottom of this article.


Navigate to the School Management page using the cog at the top right, open the 'Manage Rolls' section then click on "New Roll Type."

You will be prompted with the options of creating a Daily Roll, Emergency Roll or an Automatic Roll. Choose Daily Roll Checks.

First name your roll, then you can choose from the following options:

  1. Assignments: Who does this Roll apply to: a specific house, group or all school?
  2. Default Options: What groups/houses would you like the Roll to automatically use when you start it? Should any staff members be set as default collaborators? Would you like to check your students into a specific location when marked as present on this roll?
  3. Permissions: Which staff can start the roll, invite other staff, or complete it?
  4. Actions: You can customize the different states available to you during the roll (Present, Late, Absent), you can also add new states, based on the principle of attendance. See animation below for an example:
