VP( Network Engineering and Delivery) in Telecommunication, 10,001+ employees
We are not using any on-line attendance application or tool to manage employee attendance. It is being managed rather with mutual trust  and honesty amongst employees , team-leaders and managers at different levels.

we are not strictly measuring attendance. People do request time off so we know if they are not planning on working. We do have frequent virtual meetings to touch base with the team.

We currently manage manually with trust-  however we are in the process of implementing an automated time and attendance system to help add additional controls

As a K-12 school we are basically running a virtual school.  Therefore work from home becomes school from home and needs to be very structured in an age appropriate way.

We have scheduled classes via Microsoft Teams meetings and we also have *unscheduled* Microsoft Teams meetings and will quickly call in a colleague as needed.  

We are expected to be able to immediately join the call; laptop and/or smartphone needs to be ON and logged in to be ready to participate during school hours.
Director ERP Management in Travel and Hospitality, 1,001 - 5,000 employees
Login to company managed Microsoft Teams by remote employees has been a common tool during COVID and post-COVID time. This tool allows an effective way of communication as well for remote workers in addition to attendance tracking and employee availability management.

W are not managing attendance. We trust our employees do their best work without being micro-managed. Generally employees are reachable during business hours.

We basically use a tool called Odoo Attendance module to manage employee attendance who are working from home. It also helps you track the working hours of employees.
Director, Information Security Engineering and Operations in Manufacturing, 5,001 - 10,000 employees
I manage my employees by first and foremost trusting them. I haven't even thought about managing their attendance... Are we in 2022?
CIO in Energy and Utilities, 1,001 - 5,000 employees
We currently do not use any attendance tool. Although people are expected to be around a certain time. They are expected to file the appropriate time-off. 
VP in Construction, 51 - 200 employees
At first we decided to use an online application to mark  attendance. But it didn't really work out.
We now rely on trust and the fact that the workdone will actually reveal whether the person was enjoying themselves or working.
I do periodic checks, just to check on Wfh colleagues
