The Event Attendance Report feature is a nice extra, but it lacks usability.
What I would like to see is the ability to not just report the number of users who connected, but also their names and to do this over a specified time period (at the moment such details are only available on a per-event basis). This would aid ward/stake clerks in tracking attendance at Webcast events. My ward clerk would like to get a report of all the families who have attended since we started webcasting back in October 2020, but the only way to do that is to literally go back one-by-one through all the events and look at each individual one.
This doesn't have to be a "fancy" report. As long as it gave the basics of the meeting date/time, and details of the Congregation and Individual users, with each receiver on a separate line to make it easy and a total somewhere (preferably alphabetically sorted).
Event: XYZ Ward Sacrament meeting held 2021-02-28 at 9am
Total congregation sites: 0
<no sites listed, since it was 0>
Total individual sites: 30
If you wanted to get fancier, you could include the first connection time, last connection time and total connected time for each receiving site (which might require a table format) and add the ability to export as CSV for import into Excel, etc.
This would make the reporting infinitely more usable.
