I would like to be able to check my students' attendance on the spot without having to interpret an Excel file.
Roberta, if you select a student you can see more information about their number of absences. You can also click through the different days of the week to see when students were there or not. Yet, the info on the emailed Excel sheet is probably easier to get information from. For help with this I’d recommend the following - Easy to Use Google Sheet for Interpreting Your Roll Call Attendance Report
You might also consider voting and commenting on the following feature idea - Attendance Overhaul.
Hope this helps!
