How to Create Attendance Badges at the Sub Account Level

Only attendance badges created at the sub account level will show up in attendance reports. Creating badges at the sub account level will require sub account administrator access. Sub account administrator accounts are not automatically given to a specific person in each sub account; we (FSU ODL Technical Support) create them on an as-needed basis. Please contact us if you would like to be added as a sub account administrator to your sub account*.

*Please email [email protected] for more information on sub account administrator responsibilities and account rules.

Step-by-Step Directions

  1. Select Attendance onthe Sub Account menu.
  2. Click the Manage Badges tab at the top center of the page.
  3. Press the green Add Badge button to create a new badge.
  4. In the Add a custom attendance badge pop up window that appears, simply choose a name, icon, and color for the badge. Make sure to press the Save Badge button when you have entered in your badge specifications.

    Please note: When choosing icons and colors, it's best to stay consistent with positive and negative feedback. For example, it might be a good idea to have all badges indicating positive feedback (e.g. Works well with students) have a thumbs up, plus, or star icon and use green coloring. All badges indicating negative feedback (e.g. doesn't pay attention in class) have a thumbs down or caution sign, and use red and/or yellow coloring.

Now that you have created a badge, instructors in your subaccount can use attendance badges and run reports that present a nuanced view of attendance in their courses. For more information on how instructors can use attendance badges and run attendance reports, see Canvas Attendance (Roll Call) Tool and Participation Badges.
