What Is Attendance Roll Call and What It Does?
Roll Call is a mobile application for checking attendance and similar purposes. Powered by Google Drive, it uses Google spreadsheet as data source and as cloud backup, thus, a Google account is required. HERE’S HOW: 1. Using your Google account, create a Google spreadsheet following the rules of Roll Call 2. Open Roll Call on your phone (your Google account must be active on the phone) 3. Login to load your attendance sheet, and proceed checking attendance 4. With internet connection, attendance will automatically sync with your Google spreadsheet 5. With a full browser, open your Google spreadsheet to view and print full attendance report CREATING A GOOGLE SPREADSHEET: 1. Go to drive.google.com and login using your Google account 2. Click ‘Create’ and click ‘Spreadsheet’ 3. Encode your attendance list ROLL CALL RULES FOR CREATING SPREADSHEETS: Rule No. 1: Filename must follow the format: ‘$ROLLCALL’ then space then title Example: $ROLLCALL Physics101, $ROLLCALL Swim Team, $ROLLCALL History N5 Rule No. 2: Cells A1 and B1 are reserved cells used to locate the first record – do not put your data in these cells. A1 should contain a number pertaining to the column number of the first record (Note: A is 1, B is 2, C is 3, and so on). B1 should contain a number pertaining to the row of the first record. Example: A1 = 3 and B1 = 5, means that the first record, say a student, is at cell C5 Rule No. 3: (Optional) Cell C1 is a reserved cell used to set maximum number of allowable absences – do not put your data in this cell. Example: C1 = 10, means that if a record, say a student, has incurred 10 absences, his record entry in Roll Call will be highlighted, locked and made ‘un-tap-able’. SETTING UP YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT ON PHONE: 1. On your Android phone go to Settings, Accounts, Add account and tap Google 2. Choose Existing (or New, if you have no Google account yet) 3. Configure your account accordingly. Make sure sync to Google Drive is on. CHECKING ATTENDANCE: 1. Open Roll Call and login. If you have more than one active Google accounts on your phone, you will be prompted to choose the account. 2. Roll Call-compatible Google spreadsheets will automatically load, thus internet connection is required. Tap the spreadsheet to use. 3. Check your attendance! Toggle-tap present-absent to mark records. When done, tap ‘Save & Sync’. Roll Call will automatically sync to the corresponding spreadsheet on Google Drive. FAQs: 1. What will happen to the attendance report if I lost internet connection after checking? — No problem. With Nueca’s ‘swable’ (sync-when-able) algorithm, just check your attendance and Roll Call will keep the data on the device. When your device regains internet connection, Roll Call will automatically sync with Google Drive (even without you noticing it). 2. Do I really have to follow Roll Call rules on creating spreadsheets? — Yes. You must, otherwise.
