Professor Guide: Auto-attendance on Acadly

--

Note: This guide is meant to explain how the attendance process works for students using the Acadly Android or iOS app. This is not a comprehensive troubleshooting guide. If you understand the process well and only need to resolve an issue that you're facing, please refer to the following articles

  1. My attendance wasn't recorded correctly. How do I correct this?

1. What you need - prerequisites

--

  • You need to have the Acadly app (iOS or Android). Using the website won't work.
  • Being connected to the internet is mandatory. 
  • Being connected via WiFi improves the accuracy of the process, but it is NOT mandatory. The process can rely solely on Bluetooth, even if you are connected to the internet via your mobile data/ LTE/ 3G connection.
  • You need to give the app the permissions it asks for. If you're not sure if you have done so or not, please refer to the corresponding troubleshooting guide above.

3. Check your status before leaving class

--

Go to the attendance tab on the lecture page of your Acadly app to check your status. If it does not say "Present", please go to the professor once the lecture ends and request them to change your status to Present manually.

Do this right after the lecture ends. Attendance records can't be modified after 10 minutes have elapsed since the lecture end time (or if the professor has ended the lecture on Acadly manually).

Important: Being checked in is not the same as being present. The app will inform you of this too.
