Once a group is created, you can create sessions (meetings with your attendees) to take attendance. Sessions can be set up in a way such that they begin instantly, or at a schedule time, and they can also be set up as per a recurring schedule. This article explains all these various options.

To create a single session instantly or at a predefined time

  • You need to be inside the corresponding group. Tap on the group to do so.

  • Once you're inside, tap the + icon (shown below)
