Subject: Re: [chairs] your input on OASIS functionality enhancements

Thanks, Steve. You've suggested this before, and it's on the list of 
requests that I've made to Kavi. I hope that they'll include this in 
their next functionality release.

The end goal is to be able to do a roll call of members (sorted by company, then by name), then of prospective members, and then mark the attendance of any observers that identify themselves.  There are too many observers to do a roll call of the entire membership, and the current attendance tracking page doesn't list the role values or offer sorting.
