What is a Daily Attendance Sheet?

A daily attendance sheet is an official register that tracks the attendance of an organization’s people. As an attendance reporting tool, it effectively helps team managers to effectively monitor their members' level of participation, compliance, and productivity.

This article will briefly discuss 1) importance of daily attendance tracking in different industries; 2) 3 key advantages of an online attendance tracker; 3) mobile daily tracker app for efficient attendance management; and 3) free daily attendance sheets which can be downloaded and customized via iAuditor.

The Value of Attendance Monitoring System in Different Industries

Without an attendance monitoring system, it can be difficult for managers to track their members’ time and ensure that they are fulfilling their obligations. With the help of daily attendance sheets, managers across various industries save time and reduce errors when evaluating attendance.


Corporate HR practitioners employ an attendance monitoring system to help them comply with various regulations, especially when it comes to identifying full time employees for federally-mandated company health insurance enrollments. They also use daily attendance sheets to monitor employee sign-ins during classroom training courses.

Non-Profit Organizations

Daily attendance register is also important in non-profits so volunteers can log their hours even when in remote work and have a basis for social currency and incentives.

Student Athlete Management

Attendance monitoring programs for student-athletes is common in many colleges. School management often recruit other students to track student-athletes’ attendance in classes to and make them sign daily attendance sheets as valid proof of participation.

3 Key Advantages of Upgrading to an Online Daily Attendance Register

    A mobile attendance app can enable workers to log hours in their digital daily attendance sheets, even when they are in remote locations. With this, team managers can worry less about monitoring their productivity and show confidence in their team members.
