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.

Do you have any idea of when we can expect this feature?

I am an Airline Training Instructor moving from the classroom to virtual training with our Airline Pilots. I need to track attendance. When will this be a feature?
We have started to deliver distance learning using Microsoft Teams. It is a requirement to register students' attendance in every class. So it is really essential that there is an option to automatically record in and out times for each student.

In addition to being able to take attendance you then need to add a way for Teams Administrator to export this information, through the GraphAPI perhaps, so it can be imported to the schools MIS. Only when both recording and exporting are available will attendance be useful.
Given that so many will be dependent on resources like Teams for online studies during this pandemic, providing an attendance tool for teachers should be a top priority for the Teams developers!

I will start looking at other platforms that have attendance. I have 90 students. I need to have an easy way to find out who is there.

I can confirm, in Italy Microsoft is losing market shares towards other competitors because of Teams Attendance tracking that is actually missing

I'm working on a massive governmental project to implement teams for higher education UN, and the most asked question is the applicability of teams to track students attendance.

Exactly, having attendance feature is the most basic and the missed one. I expect to post an attendance window to the teams so that the students can checkin within a certain time, after that it will be closed or, another timeframe which saves the students as late and so on.
we urgently need to have attendance added to teams
