How to Automatically Create Journal Entries by Running Attendance Letters

Aspen Support Updated by Aspen Support

Aspen now automatically creates journal entries when Attendance Letters are run. Specifically, when the Nudge Attendance or Tardy Letters are generated, journal entries get created for the affected students under their Journal tab. Only one journal entry for each letter is produced, even if the letters are run again. This is a time-saving feature because it eliminates the need for teachers or support staff members to manually create the related journal entries for students.
