Attendance can be a key indicator of group health. Asking group leaders to take attendance at group events will let Administrators know if the group has grown too large or become too small.
After you've created an event, you can take attendance. Watch the video to see how it looks or follow the steps below and take attendance for your event.
On the group's calendar tab, select the event that needs attendance.
Either record attendance at that time, or request the Leaders record attendance.
If you choose Request Attendance from Leaders, an email will be sent to the primary email address (the starred one) of the group leader asking them to take attendance on the group page.
Select Record Attendance to be taken to the list of group members. Put a check next to members who were present and add others who attended--they can be listed as a member or a visitor.
A member will be added to the group; a visitor will just be listed for this attendance report.
Select Submit Attendance Report to record the attendance to the event.
If attendance isn’t something you’re interested in tracking, an Administrator can disable the reminders on the group settings page.

- When attendance is submitted, the data is added here and can be shown as a percentage of all members, an average, or an actual total (Sum).
- Watch how your membership grows or shrinks over a period of time.
