Update your PHP version
Version 8.6 of the XUNO Suite includes enhancements which require PHP version 5.6 or higher.

To find out if you need to update your installation of PHP and how to perform the update, please read the related article below titled "How to update PHP". 

Is your current version below 8.4?
If you aren’t already using the 8.4 version then you will need to update to version 8.4 first. 

This is because version 8.4 has a number of timetable and attendance enhancements. Please read the version 8.4 release notes in the related article below and then contact our support team to perform the upgrade.
