Practice Pal has the ability to writeback attendance to your MIS through the Wonde integration. This means when a music teacher marks a student as a present for their music lesson it will also mark them as present in your MIS so when the class teacher goes to take attendance they will see that the student is in a music lesson.
To enable this first specify what attendance code you would like to use by adding this to the text box in Settings> MIS. You may already have one for music lessons or you might want to create a new one. If you are setting up a new code then once you’ve added it into Practice Pal you will need to ask your MIS administrator(s) to also add it to your MIS System. This needs to be added with the description “Instrumental Music Lesson”.
You might need some help from your IT Team to get this added, if they need assistance with this there are some great articles below but if they're not able to get this added please ask them to get in touch.

After this has been done you need to get in touch with us to request an MIS resync before these changes will take effect.
Currently, only present attendance writes back to your MIS, this was decided as if a student is marked as absent by the music teacher we believe most schools wouldn’t want this to override the class teacher who may have already marked them as present.
