Update on Mobile App to Keep Student Records

The earlier version of the app was ideal for smaller dojos but now with cloud backup of data larger dojos can have multi-user instructor access to input and share attendance information. 
The app has been upgraded and is now suitable for both Android and Apple products. 

June, 2017 update: Since writing the original article version 2 has been released and the data is now stored in the clouds, not via DropBox as it was in the past. DropBox support is no longer available. There is an annual subscription fee (or monthly option) instead of the small, once off payment. You need to decide if the subscription fee is equal to the value of using this app . 

While we have printed record books available to all dojos there is a shift toward electronic record keeping so in 2015 I decided to see what was available to electronically keep records of student training history. I ended up selecting Attendance Manager as the best app I tried that fitted our specific purpose. 

I’ve been using Attendance Manager (AM) for about four years now and it has proved to be invaluable as a method of keeping track of training records and student class fees. It comes free, but you have to pay USD$35 annually if you want to create and send reports plus automatically backup your records in the clouds, which is exactly what you do want,  but it is worth every cent in my estimation. 

You may trail the app free for 7 days and there is the option of a monthly USD$3.99 subscription fee, in case you want to trial it for longer before jumping into an annual subscription.
