If you're wanting to track attendance or have someone "check in" for a particular event, you can do that by creating a Group and setting the automated reply type to "Simple Reply". This way anytime someone texts your keyword they will be added to the Group and thus you know they attended. You can also then follow up with everyone at the event by sending a message to everyone in the group.

If you're wanting to track service attendance on Sundays in an ongoing manner, you need to setup a new Group for each week.  You would then set a keyword for people to text in like “RollCall” or “Here” so you can keep track. We do have the ability to clone a Group also.

Another option for Sunday mornings is to go into the group each week and do an export of data, so you can see who was there and have that for your records.  Then, remove all of the members of the group so that the next week you will have a fresh list of people who text in.

So, while we don’t have an attendance tracking feature, there are ways to accomplish the same goal.
