Track student attendance within Teams
Everything is so cool, I love it, but could be possible to add a tab to keep track of the students attendance?
Hello awesome educators. Within the Insights tab educators now have access to engagement data including when students work on assignments, files, conversations/chat, and meetings. Please see this article for additional details:
As always, we appreciate your feedback.

Must needed feature for schools
I am looking to track student's attendance to classes on teams group calls.
I'd like to add my voice to this request - we are moving ahead into possible long term online classrooms using Teams, without an integrated attendance solution. Microsoft marketing Teams as an Education solution without this is laughable.
I would like to see if and when a student opened up our team or channel. Right now, I have no way of knowing who is actually using my team unless they post a message,
I think this should involve 'analytics' - we should be able to see which users are using the system and which aren't - who is checking work, etc. as a teacher this is needed to monitor who we should help! Please give us that options within analytics - it would surely be simple?

Would be a really great added value! As Breda University of Applied Science we need this
Lucien André Reuter commented
we as university need to track the attendace, offline and online from our students.
so we need a list to checkmark that somebody was in a classroom on a day x und was in online meeting on day y.
Currently we run this over Moodle with attendance plugin, an intergration or communication between teams and moodle would be a dream!

During the COVID-19 school closure, we have to track each time we have contact with a student, this includes when they access TEAMS to check for or submit assignments.
If I could just see their access history under the Manage Team section that would be great. Right now it just shows the last time they accessed TEAMS; I have to go into each individual assignment to see their access history - that's a lot of keystrokes to check on my 117 students, especially if I assign more than one assignment per week.
We are looking for an attendance logging /tracking system from Microsoft Teams. Since this is a period where we are all in lockdown, an urgent solution with respect to this is much appreciated.
1- Who attends it.
2- if the class is 2 hours, who complete it and not. (Time tracking individually)
3- Who is most active to
4- Who is the idlest ranking
6- Summary of the chat (downloaded in excel or pdf)

For information this is not yet sufficient but... one of our teachers (thank you Michel) informed me that an app Teams has been made available by Microsoft Education "Insights (Preview)" and obviously the support service 1 and 2 are not informed.
You can add in a team the "Information" app, the stats will be available only to teachers.
My Year Three Team Teachers, would like to be able to track with more detail WHO has been on, WHAT they are completing each day.
Very interesting .Learned more abaut one notes

Hello Gordon Chang,
We would like to be able to follow the attendance of our students in the Teams.
With Powershell, it's easy to know the number of active students in a team and to deduce the number of inactive students by cross-referencing the data with the number of registrations.
But who are these inactive students? How to relaunch / accompany them personally?
Of course from the admin of Teams "Analytics & reports" we have for example the date of last activity of a user but we do not know in which team he is active or not.
With the covid-19 crisis, it becomes essential and urgent to be able to follow the progress of our students as well as possible.
In our case it is a question of following 2600 students and 260 teams.
2. Something like the grade book would be great to have.
3. Primarily for online classes, but integration with school management system through some API will be even better.

1. personally no.
2. Yes, If a student interacts with the class to auto record
3. All of the above
4. personally no

Would be great to be able to track attendance in different ways. At specified lesson/meeting times and also visits to the team. Also see attendance as a class list and extract to excel
Mariyam Gulshan commented
please we need it urgently
For me, a simple(?) automated attendance would work - if a student interacts wit the class in some way, their 'attendance' is recorded in an easy to view register. For example, says 'hello' in a conversation space, joins a meeting, downloads a file, views a file etc. Their presence only needs recording once, not from every interaction.
