Types of Attendance Register
There are basically 3 types of attendance registers:

Student Attendance Register
Student Attendance Registers are used to check which students are attending the class. It helps teachers maintain the record of students absent, present, on leave, etc. in the class for an entire academic year. Additionally, this helps to reduce the workload of teachers and save many hours that can be utilized in more fruitful tasks.
Timesheet Attendance Register
Timesheet Attendance Registers are used to monitor and record the number of hours employees have put in who are subsequently paid on an hourly basis. These payments may be daily, twice a week, or every week. In other words, these registers record the man-hours spent by the employee at their job. Generally, it is simply a sheet of paper with the necessary data arranged in a tabular format. However, timesheets have now become digital. Timesheets summarize hours worked by every worker during a particular pay period and record the time of arrival and departure of workers.
