Add a "Virtual Attendance" feature in Class Teams
I think this is a great feature that all teachers need.
For the time being, we have been posting Quick Polls from Teams as "Virtual Attendance". But it would be GREAT if there is an actual feature to get students' attendance without posting quick polls at X time everyday.
A few suggestions for this feature:
- There should be a "repeat" option, just like Meetings; so that it will automatically pop up
- Teachers should be able to set the start and end time to check in (eg; 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM), and pick the days (shouldn't only be Mon-Fri, coz other schools or tuition schools have different school days all over the world).
- An option to mark student as LATE, if the student checks in after X time.
- An option for students to jot down their excuse for being late, or if they couldn't join the online class.
Thank you for hearing us out, Microsoft. It is very much appreciated. I know there are a lot of demands right now, especially with this pandemic going on. But I hope this feature will be added soon, as it is extremely USEFUL to keep track of our students.
