    I don't believe it would be awfully hard to add a tool to the mobile app to "Take attendance". Currently our secretary doesn't bother with the attendance module, because it's just easier to just write it down and send the numbers to District. Also, having attendance be a piece of paper ensures that anyone can take it, not just the person with a computer and a login. Putting it on the mobile app helps with that too! Adding value to the Mobile App will really increase it's adaptability.

    Hi Bob,

    Thank you for the feedback regarding the mobile app.

    We are always hard at work on the mobile app, and we're currently focused on its core functionality. I can confirm that we've discussed additional functionality related to the mobile app and attendance, but it is not on the short term road map at this time.

    I have passed your specific comments over to our Product team so that we have it for when we're looking at updates to the attendance module and mobile app updates.

    Our club bought an inexpensive android tablet several years ago that we use to take attendance through the website interface. It is setup at the door so people can either check themselves off as they come in or (usually) a greeter is there to check their box for them. Works well.

    I just wanted to echo that I've heard stories like this from other clubs as well, using a computer (or tablet, or phone) at the meeting to take attendance or let members check themselves in. We know that clubs are looking for new ways to help track attendance and make it easier to manage, so it is something that is on our minds.

    I look forward to additional feedback from others on this subject :)

    Some of our members pre pay for the meals at our meeting. I had this vision of the members having bar codes on their name tags. An app would scan it an not only update attendance but subtract the meal cost from their account. Or let the greeter know that they need to pay for their meal. Two scans within a short time frame would not register. Also an option to void the scan. The app should be easy to link to our club so different greeters could download it. Perhaps an option to use their account to pay fines and happy bucks. Just some far out ideas.
