Attendance Feature (Roll Call) Awful!

Is Canvas making any effort to come up with a decent attendance feature for use by Instructors?  I studied and tried to use the Roll Call feature.  The "reports" are far less efficient than the old paper rosters to generate and use.  I am conversant enough with Excel to know that these reports are worse than useless.  I tested it for one month in a class that meets twice per week (about twenty students).   The report simply was of no use.  Paper rosters in the end were easier to use to evaluate student attendance/participation in a class.
