A simple(r) way to record who attended a Google Meet session
This extension is intended for teachers (like me) who've had to rapidly transition to online classes and need a simple way to take attendance during a Google Meet. As you start your Meet, you can enter a list of expected invitees and the extension will automatically detect who joined the call and how long they stayed.. You can save multiple class lists (which are shared to all of your devices).
The extension records which students attended, when they arrived and how long they stayed with all of the information displayed in a tidy HTML report. The latest v1.0.x release has an entirely user interface to manage student information - including the ability to add student-specific comments in the reports - and offers a much more flexible and extensible framework for new features in the future.

The extension already supports English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Dutch, Bulgarian, Swedish, Czech, Arabic, Chinese and Romanian (and perhaps more). Most of the HTML reports and much more of the extension UI ready for translation. Please contact me if you'd like to help with this effort.
