Attendance Sessions

An Attendance Session is a period of time for a particular location when attendance is being recorded. If you have pre-defined Attendance Sessions (for example, pre-booked meetings), you can set them up in advance on the Attendance Sessions window.

Attendance Sessions have their own scannable QR code linking to a page on your MSL website enabling checking in without the Attendance station itself, which is ideal for recording attendance in a more informal way.


You can access this feature from your MSL Admin site. Only Super Admins with Door Entry Supervisors, Event Admins or Site Admins permissions can access the Attendance Sessions window.

You will need the Attendance module installed on your MSL System to access this feature.
If interested, please ask your Contractual System Admin to get in touch for a quote and to discuss the implementation of this module.

For further information, see Attendance Setup and Attendance Overview.
