Has anyone used Podio to track attendance



  • Rob Horan

    Would like this answered as well for HR purposes and vacations/holidays. It would be good to be able to lookup an employee and see how much holiday they have left in the year. The problem is that when you roll into a new year, you can only sum ALL holidays taken and not just the current year.

    I created an app to record absences, tardies, early departures, etc., to assign automatically standardized absentee work, and to collect and score that work quickly and with minimal extra work. I will use it for the first time in the fall, but I am confident that it will be easy to use and very effective in reducing the number of absences, and trips to the restroom (which are usually unnecessary). It isn't quite ready for th app market, but I will try to speed it along its way. I created a workspace just for absences and will make all of my students members to facilitate sharing items. I will enter each absence (tardy, etc.) as a single item. That, I believe, will be the trick.

    While Podio is a versatile platform for managing tasks and projects, tracking attendance of students may not be its primary use case. However, you can potentially adapt Podio to suit your attendance tracking needs with some customization.

    1. Use Podio Apps: Podio allows you to create custom apps and fields. You can design an app specifically for attendance tracking. Create fields for student names, dates, and attendance status (e.g., present, absent). Each entry in the app can represent a class session.

    2. Automate Data Entry: If you want to streamline data entry, consider using automation tools like Zapier to connect Podio with other platforms or devices where attendance is recorded (e.g., a barcode scanner or an attendance app).

    3. Reporting: Podio offers reporting features that can help you analyze attendance data. You can create custom reports and charts to visualize attendance trends over time.

    4. Alternative Apps: If Podio doesn't fully meet your needs, consider exploring dedicated attendance tracking apps available on app stores. The App Store source provides one such option.
