Easier way to view student attendance throughout the semester

I have recently begun using the Canvas attendance tool to track attendance in my community college courses, but it lacks one big advantage of keeping attendance on paper -- the ability to quickly monitor which students are missing a lot of class. I can only view student attendance in two ways -- by clicking on each individual student to see the number of days missed (which *doesn't* give me the dates, or by running a report that gives me the full attendance info, but in a very user-unfriendly format. Is their a way I'm missing to view student overall attendance, and see at a glance which students have missed class recently so I can get in touch with them? Since I teach 6 classes and over 200 students, the current tools do not give me the info I need.
