Generating an attendance report
Generating reports is a key functionality of the Attendance Taker for Classroom add-on. There are different formats of reports that can be generated, based on the requirement of a teacher.
Open your Google Calendar.

By default, the report is generated with a predefined template. For quicker generation time, you can check the Export the report in raw format.
You can check the Includes check-in for shared resources option if you want to show the attendance of shared resources.
By default, the report is generated for all students in the class. You can exclude certain students by selecting Customize in the Attendees section.
Click Generate Report.
A report is generated in Google Sheets and you will be redirected to the report in a new tab. This sample report is generated with the Export the report in raw format checked.
Every student's attendance is displayed in detail in separate rows.
The rate column displays students' attendance rate as a percentage, with 100 meaning full attendance.
In the top row, the date and time columns display the dates chosen in the date range, along with the meeting start times.
In the subsequent rows, the date and time columns display students' join time, or "absent" if they did not join.
Depending on how much data is generated within the report, you may see the screen below. You can always check the status of the report by clicking on View reports, the report should be ready in just a few minutes.
In Google Sheets, you can choose to download the report in .xlsx (Excel) format by clicking on File > Download > Microsoft Excel(.xlsx)
Why don't I see a report when I click the "Generate" button?
If my student leaves in the middle of class, what happens to their attendance?
