Ratings and Reviews
You cannot place students wherever you want them. I have three classes with 60 students each and they will not fit. There needs to be a maximum class size listed in the description so people do not waste their time with garbage like this. The icons representing the seating arrangements will not stay where you put them. There is no room to place as many desks as you need. You need more screen space - get rid of superfluous frames trying to pretty up the appearance - it's taking up valuable screen real estate. There is no clear method to use if you need to take attendance several times a day for the same class. Get it out of beta and it might be worth a second look. Right now thank god it's free and you can try it first. If I paid for this I'd be ticked off.
Great app, but lacks some features!
This is a great app that allows me to quickly take attendance. I love the seating chart feature and the ability to quickly add a student note. I would, however, like the ability to add in my own attendance icons, such as tardy but with a pass or nurse. I'd also like the ability to back-date notes and discipline. Some other suggestions would be a print option for seating charts and logs. A way to see a spreadsheet or chart of all students and behavior totals would be a nice addition too.
Needs an import badly
I love the feasibility of movement in this program. I was looking for just a seat chart maker, and this free program seems awesome. However I have 5 sections with 40 students in each section and unfortunately typing in 200 names does not sound like fun. It needs to be able to have a function where a list of names can be imported quickly and the students be added. Please add that feature to this program!!!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
