If excuses are not allowed to be submitted a certain number of hours before an event starts, you can restrict a member's ability to submit an excuse after that time.
To do so, go to My Access > Admin > Extras > MCR Configuration.
- Scroll down to the Event Related Settings section
- Type in the number that corresponds with the number of hours you want to cut off excuses before the event
- For example, if you don't want excuses to be permitted less than 24 hours prior to the start of an event, enter 24.
- Save changes
- Once it is within the time frame indicated (within the 24 hours for example) the "submit excuse" button/link will disappear and it will show "expected to attend" instead.
If you leave this section blank, excuses can be submitted any time up until the start of the event.
