HeadMaster's Seating Chart (only available with Classroom Manager) aids teachers in quickly learning names and makes taking attendance a fast and simple task. If pictures have been downloaded and attached to student records, a picture of the student displays on the seating chart.

Each photo represents a desk. You can drag each “desk” to a place in the room where you want the student to sit. If you need to rearrange desks for behavior or other classroom management reasons, it's as simple as dragging and dropping each “desk” on the seating chart. Once these are in place, you can click each picture to take attendance.

Before you can use the seating chart, you must configure it.
