Accessing Session Attendance Reports

Session Reports give you an overview of when participants joined and left your sessions. It also gives you an idea of how long participants were present in the session on average. With this knowledge, you can check in with individual participants to see if they were having any technical issues or need a quick review of what was presented and discussed.

If you've used a session more than once, there will be a separate report for each time it was used.
