📖 2 mins read
Organizers of Google Workspace Enterprise for Education meetings will now receive an attendance report via email once the meeting is over.
Attendance reports will be generated for web or mobile meetings with at least five (and no more than 250) participants and will contain the following information for each:
  • Participant’s name
  • Participant’s email
  • Length of time a participant was on the call, including when they joined and exited

The attendance report contains the names, email addresses, and duration of time participants were in the meeting.
Students who have the ability to create meetings will receive attendance reports as well.

Who’s impacted

End users

Why you’d use it

Attendance reports will help meeting organizers keep track of who attended their meetings and for how long, which can be challenging during larger meetings or while presenting.

Additional details

Recording attendance for ejected or dial-in participants 
Google will record the attendance of any participants who chose to dial in. The obfuscated phone number and name displayed during the meeting will appear in the attendance report.
If a meeting participant is ejected and re-admitted to the meeting, you’ll see the time they first joined and the time they last left. The total duration of their attendance will be a sum of their sessions.

Getting started

  • Admins: At this time, there is no admin control for this feature. Google is planning to introduce this setting later this year; stay tuned to the Google Workspace Updates blog to learn when it launches.
  • End users: There is no end user setting for this feature. Attendance reports will automatically be sent to the meeting host. Visit the Help Center to learn more about attendance tracking.
