How to Generate an Attendance Report in Google Meet

Video calling usage is on the rise. Almost every company and other people use Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Google Meet. If you or your company prefer Google Meet, like the GuidingTech team, you can improve the extension experience. Google Meet Chromium extensions allow users to add Whiteboards, generate attendance reports, and more without any hassle.

If you frequently take paid Google Meet webinars or organize meetups with a large number of people, you can use a Google Meet extension to generate an attendance report in Google Sheets. The app helps you keep track of all the users participating in the Google Meet call.

Downloading and installing an extension remains the same as above. The Google Meet Attendance extension is for teachers who have to quickly transition to online classes and need a simple way to take attendance during a Google Meet. When starting your Meet, you can enter a list of expected invitees; the extension will automatically detect who joined the call and how long they stayed. You can save multiple class lists (they are shared across all your devices).
