Introducing QR Check-In Mode with the Qwickly Attendance Student App!

September 28, 2022


We are so excited to introduce the new QR Check-In Mode for Qwickly Attendance Plus and Qwickly Attendance Pro licensees! We have been working on developing the most seamless way for instructors to take attendance for the last couple years and we finally have it. Make sure to register for the Explore Attendance-Taking Modes with Qwickly Attendance webinar held on October 13th at 2:00 PM ET that will go over QR check-in mode and other attendance-taking modes. It is also important to note that if you cannot attend the webinar on this date, a recording will be sent to all registrants the day after.

How does it work?

QR Check-In allows instructors to take attendance by projecting a QR code from their screen for students to scan. Once a student scans the code, they will receive a message on their device letting them know they have been checked into class.

Once the instructor has their session open, students will scan the QR code with their phones as they come into class. Students will need to have the Qwickly Attendance app downloaded on their device in order to scan the QR code. You’ll notice that the QR code the instructor displays changes every few seconds - this is an extra security measure we have added to discourage code sharing. Once students have successfully scanned the code, they will receive a message on their phones letting them know that they are checked into class.

An attendance check in session will end automatically when the timer runs out. An instructor can also end the check in session early by clicking end session.

If you are a current licensee of Qwickly Attendance Plus or Qwickly Attendance Course Tools and would like to get more information on how to set up QR Check-In Mode, check out our knowledge base article.
