I had thought that we could set up one activity for that class, and then add people by dates. So let's say we have a new crop of students for the class that meets July 1, 8 & 15. I guess I would need to add the new students to the activity and then record attendance. When I go to record attendance, will I see every student who ever took this class? Or will I just see the ones that I've just added for the July class?
Thanks for your help!
The way you have it setup is that you would see everyone who took the class. What I would do is setup two activities, one the current class, then one for 'graduates'. Once the current class is over, you could 'graduate' them, and then add new attendees to the class.
It would go like this:
400 - Adult Education - ( I like to have a header)
410 - Current Series Attendees
411 - Series Graduates
I would add new attendees to 410, at the end of the class, I would use the Mass Update module to move everyone from 410 to 411, thus having 410 ready for the new class.
