Live Rollcall and Standard Rollcall with Reach App

ARTICLE: Live Rollcall and Standard Rollcall with Reach App

Rollcall can be taken and processed through the Reach Student Life mobile app in one of two ways; Live Rollcall and Standard Rollcall.  Live Rollcall will allow staff to work in collaboration with other staff members to quickly and efficiently account for students in one or multiple of locations, enabling others to see real-time updates regarding students' whereabouts.  Standard Rollcall allows for one user to log attendance for a group as one event, and other staff won't be able to see the results of a Standard Rollcall until after it has been completed and submitted.
