Its features include:
- Being able to register for and log-in to a PhoenixNow account.
- Checking-in each day to school via the app's sign-in system. The app uses GPS location to detect if a student is on the Guilford College campus, and if so, the user will check-in successfully.
- Submitting a schedule for each semester for approval, thereby only having to sign-in on days that a student has classes.
Associated with the website "phoenixnow.org," this app signs-in on the same system. Using either the app or the website will produce the same result, with office administration maintaining a record of each student's overall attendance.
