Many templates offered online require Microsoft Excel to open and customize. A wide range of customizable sheets are available, with different styles based the type of form used. Visit one of the providers, and download the file as an Excel-compatible file. Save the file locally on your computer to customize and use.

Google Sheets is a free alternative to Microsoft Excel and offers an attendance template by default. As of January 2016, an attendance template is available by going to the Google Sheets page. Under the Start a New Spreadsheet tab, click More. Select Attendance beneath the Education category. The template then downloads and opens. Tailor the template as needed. Google Sheets are saved on the Google server, so it is not necessary to save the file locally. The sheet may then be opened from any device capable of running Google Sheets.

Another option is to print off a blank attendance chart and write all names and information onto the chart. If the same chart is needed for multiple uses, write the names of all attendees, and make copies of the chart. Ensure that a date field is included as necessary.
