In the Mark Attendance window, you can select a roster and mark attendance for individuals who are enrolled in it. If someone is present for a roster but not enrolled, it is also possible to mark attendance on this window as non-enrolled.

Depending on the master group you select, all areas may not display. You must also save markings before you can post to additional rosters within the same master group.
