App Content

Check you are attending the correct class at the correct time. Some classes have multiple lab times/seminar slots available. You will be allocated to a specific slot and must attend accordingly.

Contact the School Office to ensure you are enrolled in the correct modules and add the class to your timetable.

Recent activity refreshes each time you log in to Attendr. This means information from previous log ins is not stored on your device. If your app completed all 3 stages of recording attendance and the class previously appeared in your recent activity, your attendance has been successfully recorded.

Check the timetable tab in the Attendr app. Classes where your attendance has successfully been marked will have a green tick in the class details. Please note, the timetable tab only shows information relating to the present day. You will not be able to see your timetable and attendance ticks for previous days.

Check the lecturer has started marking attendance. You must wait until the lecturer announces that they are marking attendance. If you try to mark attendance before the lecturer is ready, you will need to wait 30 seconds before you can try again.
