I would like to get away from paper based attendance logging to an electronic version, to ease the burden of the weekly manual entry of attendance into eServices. Is there a function that allows the import of an attendance file, e.g. in .csv format into eServices?

E-Services/Personnel/Attendance Log. You can click on members of the unit who are present and add non-members and visitors by name or CAPID.

There is an attendance module specifically intended for tracking meeting and activity attendence which then cross references
that attendance into the eServices personnel file.

Lat I checked, that module is only available to members appointed as Commander and Personnel Officer and cannot be delegated.

In short:
It's not automated. Even if you attach the file, it still has to be done manually.

Unless you link it to a bar code scanner or finger-punch digital entry (i.e., number pad) connected to a laptop when people walk in the door, you'll have to select each member on the Attendance module.

scanner can dump to CSV which can then be dumped into the module.

Ah Bach - yes, I see.  You can attach, for example, the signature page to the new meeting when you create it, but still have to tick off the boxes.
