Submitting Attendance from History

If you do not have access to the internet you can still register your attendance with the app and update your records at a later time once you have an internet connection.
To do this select the history option from the options button and search for the scheduled event. Select this event and 're-register' your attendance.
Please note, you must attempt to sign in as normal at the start of your event regardless of whether you have an internet connection or not. Then, once you have a connection this information will be used to update your attendance records.
