    What should I do when the existing clock in / out time setting is required to change?

    In order to keep track the clock-in/out time setting by different time period, school shall not edit/delete the clock-in/out setting but rather to create new clock-in/out time setting with desired effective start date.

    This will accommodate system to always referring to the historical time setting for accurate attendance status reporting.
