Bug Description

Attendance score systems need "abbreviation" values that work the same way as in regular score systems -- an optional value used for entry that's different from the regular value.

This is an actual user bug btw.

Attendance score systems do have a "description" field that is used the same way as "abbreviation" in discrete score systems – the name is, in fact, misleading, because it is a title (description), not abbreviation (label).

An example why you want three different fields instead of existing two?

The actual value to report is required to be upper case, but we don't want to require people to enter data in upper case.

for us just needs to be able to show or print in upper case,

User can enter either uppercase or lowercase values in the journal, but they are stored in lower case.

When manager creates a new scoresystem, the values are stored in lowercase.

It was done so because it is simple way to allow the user to enter in either case.

I think the implementation can be changed to respect what the manager enters when creating an attendance score system.

Not add a new field.

That sounds reasonable, Gediminas.

I've implemented what I said in Comment #4, but score systems cannot be edited, so a new score system needs to be created, and old attendance values remain in lower case.

Is that acceptable?
