Attendance2 is a new app from the developer of the original iOS Attendance app. It is a complete rewrite of the app with a new data format to make it more flexible and easier to use.
* Main Features * Easy to get started with and powerful features you can learn if you need them. Flexible importing of names from CSV file or your Contacts (videos on website show how to create an import CSV files) Display photos next to names while taking attendance. Photos can be taken with the device, imported from Dropbox, or from your Photo library. Statuses (i.e., Absent, Present, etc.) are customizable so you can add your own statuses. Each day includes a status, a second status, and a generic note field. Use the second status to track participation points or for dropoff/pickup (more information on website for how to do this). Manually select status for each person or scan QR or barcode to record a person's attendance status (Attendance2 will create QR codes fro you). Optionally enter course meetings times (i.e., MWF 9AM) so you add your next class time with one tap or manually select meeting time if course does not meet at regular times. Standard fields for first, middle, last, email, etc. for each person plus 5 custom fields you can optionally use. Customize which person fields are visible while taking attendance in the Take settings. Multiple report options (spreadsheet, summary, detailed report) that can be emailed or saved to Dropbox in CSV format. Reports of students who have missed a specified number of classes to help identify at risk students. Customize what fields are included in the reports in the Report Settings. Each course is a separate data file and you can share your data file with teaching assistants or administrators by sending it to them in an email. Easily backup your data file to Dropbox or via email. Supports TextExpander touch snippet expansion in various note fields.
* Gestures while taking attendance * Tap photo to view larger photo or to change the photo. Tap name to enter the note for that day for the person. Tap and hold name to view/edit details for a person. Double tap a name to view summary report of attendance. Tap and hold status to select status from a list. Swipe right/left all the way across screen to switch to previous/next date.
* Sharing data between multiple devices or people * Data cannot be synced between multiple users, but as long as you send the data file back and forth between multiple people and the person using it has the latest copy, mutliple people can take attendance at different times. For example, an instructor could take attendance on MWF, email the data file to his/her TA after class Wednesday and the TA could then take attendance at a recitation section on Thursday and email the updated data file back to the instructor afterwards so the instructor could use it again on Wednesday. The same instructions apply for using it on multiple devices - just share the data (via email or Dropbox) with your other device and make certain the device you're using at the momemnt has the latest copy of the data before you modify the data.
