I am in a classroom equipped with the attendance scanners, how can I enable them for my class?

To enable the system, simply sign into myOleMiss and click on the "Faculty" tab, "Class Info" tab, "Class Roles and Grades" link and select the desired semester.

This will take you to a screen with attendance tracking tools and the option to enable the scanners for your class. You simply pick the time you wish the scanners to start and stop accepting scans for your class and mark the "Enable" box.
