How to Check Microsoft Teams Attendance Report?
There are several ways you can check the attendance report of a meeting in MS Teams. You can either check the current attendance on a live meeting or even see the attendees and their details post-meeting.
Only organizers and co-organizers of the meeting have the authority to check the attendance report. So make sure you have the necessary authority before you process these methods. Additionally, you must remember that the attendance list does not include participants joined in the View-only mode and those left in the lobby.
From the Meeting
You can view the list of current attendees from the Participants tab. Nevertheless, if you wish to view all attendees who joined in between the meetings with their details, you can download the attendees’ list in a
.CSV (Excel) file.
If you do not see the entire attendance report, don’t worry it’s not a glitch. Teams only displays half of the participants in case of larger meetings (more than 120 participants). You will have to wait until the meeting ends to view the full report.
Here are the steps you can follow to download the attendees’ list from an ongoing meeting in MS Teams:
- Open your Teams meeting.
- From the menu bar, select the People icon to open the Participants sidebar.
- Select the three-dot (More Options) next to Participants.
- Click on Download attendance list.
Your system will download the spreadsheet in the Downloads folder of your device.
There are three ways you can access the attendee report after your meeting ends in Microsoft Teams. You could either only view or download the report as an Excel worksheet on your device.
