Tags PSU

When using Zoom, here is how you can take attendance.

  • Once logged into Zoom, click on Settings.

  • Set Chat to autosave.

  • Schedule your meeting.
  • Beginning of class/meeting. have each attendee send a hi or something to identify they are there in the Chat.
  • Hold your class/meeting.
  • End of class/meeting:
    • If you want to ensure know who are the attendees that are still at the meeting, have each attendee send a bye in chat.
    • To save the chat: at the bottom of the chat screen, click the three dots to the right of the "TO:".

  • The chat text file will be stored on your computer. This is where my PC stores the text file.
