Track attendance in Google Meet

14 Feb 2021 - Corey Pollock

Attendance taking is a critical tool for any teacher. Now that teaching has become remote, knowing which students are in the classroom and at what time has become increasingly difficult...

That's why we created Meet Enhancement Suite Attendance – the easiest attendance tool on the Chrome Store. Our new attendance feature for Google Meet, available to all Meet Pro users, makes taking your classes attendance as simple as a single click.

Read on below to learn how to take advantage of this new feature.

How to take attendance

To start taking attendance, first make sure your are signed-up for our Meet Pro subscription, and have activated your subscription inside the Chrome Extension.

Open the participants panel

You can access the attendance feature through the Google Meet participants menu – located in the top right hand corner of your Google Meet. Click the participants icon to open the menu.

Click the attendance button

Next step is to take attendance of the class – to do so simply click the Take Attendance button. You should now see a confirmation bubble at the bottom of the participant menu which reads Attendance Taken!

You are able to take attendance as many times as you like during the Google Meet session. Each time you click the Take Attendance button, a new time-stamped list will be captured within a CSV file. Taking attendance multiple times per session will allow you to keep tabs on which students were present at what times (see an example of this in the image below).

Export your attendance

Our last step is to export your Google Meet sessions attendance. From the participants menu, within the Take Attendance, you will see a button that reads Download CSV. Clicking this button will download a .CSV file to your computer which contains your attendance data.

Please note: you must download the CSV before leaving the Google Meet session. Once you leave the session you will no longer be able to export your attendance for that session.
