Re: Tracking Attendance

1836 tried many things during my time on the team. Here are the different things that worked:
  • Write names on whiteboard when you get there (someone records this later in a Google Sheet)
  • Send a Slack DM to a designated person when you arrive and leave (honor system - depends on the culture of your team. We finally got to the point where students were trusted to be honest letting us know when they were in/out)
  • Having a convoluted Google Form where people indicated their ability which generates a checklist that a designated person goes around and checks off - most work upfront but pretty easy once it's all set up)
  • Not taking attendance. This is not a joke. It worked very well once we got to the point where we had a positive culture and trusted students to come whenever they could. We made sure that all students new the commitment required to be part of the team. And almost everyone had the self-awareness to know if they were being a productive team member. This doesn't work for everyone but if you can pull it off, this is amazing, easy on everyone, and promotes trust and commitment.
