Case Study: Transforming Efficiency with Tailored Panels

Four panels are provided by the Attendance management system (AMS) to control faculty and student attendance.

  1. Administrative Panel: Comprehensive Control and User Management

    The administrative panel provided complete oversight, enabling user management with capabilities to add, edit, and remove users. Additionally, administrators had the authority to grant, update, and cancel access permissions. The application master functionalities allowed for meticulous management of courses, facilities like labs and classrooms, and controlling lecturer attendance lock-in periods.

    The software's administrator has complete control over how it is run. The following are the principal administrative duties:

    • User Management
      • The administrator has the ability to add, edit, and remove users.
      • Additionally, the admin can grant, update, and cancel access permissions.
    • Application Master
      • Manage courses
      • Manage labs, lecture halls, classrooms, etc.
      • Control the lock-in period for lecturer attendance
      • Organize the month of the semester Change
      • Manage semester change Month
    • Reports Management
      • View and print daily reports
      • Edit reports
      • Delete reports

  2. Principal Panel: Insightful Reports and Oversight Capabilities

    The principal panel facilitated a comprehensive view of reports, enabling exportation for further analysis. Principals could unlock past date attendance for lecturers, view fines, and incorporate additional roles as needed, ensuring a holistic overview of attendance and disciplinary aspects.

    • View and export reports
    • Unlock past date attendance for lecturers
    • View fines
    • Other roles can be added by admin

  3. HOD Panel: Department-Specific Management and Timetable Control

Lecturers could view and edit marked attendance, create and modify timetables, and manage attendance-related tasks within their assigned purview.

    • View the schedule (by date using the calendar)
    • Mark attendance of students (Only of allowed lock in period dates)
    • View marked attendance
    • Create, assign and edit timetable
    • View marked attendance
