Title: Attendance bulk data entry?
Post by: Holding Pattern on May 15, 2018, 02:50:15 PM
So I know there are several areas of e-services that support bulk data entry. Does the attendance module have that capability? I'm hoping I'm just missing a button...

I will hope for "soon", because I have 2 barcode scanners I picked up for cheap that will make life seriously simple on this front.

"Soon" is relative.

Maybe it's me, but I'm not picking up on what's meant by "bulk" here...

I assumed it meant the member roster for meeting attendance, which eServices does have a module for.

Right now you have to select each member individually, including choices like "on time" and "uniform".

It would be nice to have a place to just dump CAPIDs, or maybe a .csv uploader for all the choices.

I was thinking in "Elon Time"

That's plausible.

"Elon Time" is "rush to market and then let your customers test your products"...

No.

"Elon Time" is time on Elon Musk's scale. Which is to say, not normal time.

Its "We're going to fly Falcon Heavy in 2012. I meant 2013. Which is to say, in the next 12 months. That means 2014? Oh, hmmm. Well, it will definitely fly in Q4 2014. Until it slips to 2015, but it will definitely fly then. Or, well, first quarter 2016, right? I meant Q3 2016. But we're actually going to schedule it for Q4.  And its scheduled for Q1 2017. Oh, look, it flew!"

Its similar to the "Reality Distortion Field" that surrounded Steve Jobs.

Heh - yeah, sounds about right, and apropos in this case.
