Block Out Dates so that Students dont get added to MIA or their MIA doesn't progress

Have an option where if we are closed down for holidays or other events and classes are not happening we can put that into the system and when those dates happen the MIA list doesn't see them or count students as actually missing when in fact they cant not be there because there are not classes.

Example: Someone is on the MIA list at 10 Days missing but the next 2 days we are closed, the next time we have class they only go up 1 day verses 3 days.

Another Example is for the school I'm apart of is we close down the last week of December for all the holiday action going on so when we come back from the break we will have 370+ students on the list that don't need to be there if we can block out those dates.

    It would be great to mark off Christmas & New Years this year as 'school closed / no MIAs' and not have anyone receive the 'we miss you' emails while we are all away & the school is closed.

    Thanks so much Megan!

    We agree.  There are several times each year where this will be useful.  This is an automation/business logic pain point that we are creating a direction around and brainstorming solutions that will allow all schools flexibility in use based on their operations and goals.  

    The best practice at this time is to deactivate MIA flows  (NOT ALL FLOWS - unless that would be appropriate, but I doubt it ) when you close and NOT reactivate them for a week after you resume classes.  If you activate them instantly upon return all members will qualify under MIA flows greater than 7 days missing attendance.
