Youhere.org: How to set up attendance taking

Taking attendance with Youhere takes two parts. The first has to do with administrative settings on this website, Youhere.org. The second has to do with the app that your participants install on their phones.

With the website, you create an attendance event with some name, like my-check-in. Under this name, you'll use a map to locate the center-point (location) for your attendance. You'll also set an 'inclusion zone' around this center-point that defines an acceptable attendance region (sort of like a fence). You can also restrict check-ins to particular days or times.

With the app, (Apple App Store or Google Play) your participants will enroll in your attendance event using the name my-check-in using the app on their phones. After this, they may begin using the app to "check-in" to your event.

Here's some more details.
