I have been working on a system to allow me to track my business educational courses at a client, cohort, week bases with feedback loops.

My design was clients, contacts, products/courses, cohort weeks, and finally, attendance. All was going well until I got to track the attendance/feedback… I want to add multiple students to a cohort week as you can see here…

I want to use each row of the attendance table to tack the attendance to each cohort week, and as you can see, it’s adding multiple to the same name… so my attendance checkbox and NPS score are not fit for the purpose…

Any ideas how I break this down to a better structure I would be most grateful
