Abstract: Attendance systems have been rated as amongst the critical issues that reflect domain achievements, and their performances have contributed better to organisations, industries and universities compared with traditional methods that are time-consuming and inefficient. Different automatic identification technologies have become trends, and extensive research conducted and many applications produced to maximise technology features. To address issues related to attendance system technologies, including the advantages, schemes and methods and obstacles, we present a structured review of attendance management systems, with high potential for managing, recording and tracking the presence of users in different domains. Additionally, this study introduces a detailed literature survey schema for article categorisation. Out of the 204 identified papers, 90 were found relevant in the context of this review. The selected articles are comprehensively reviewed, criticised and assessed in accordance with Kitchenham's guidelines for systematic literature review. Lastly, we highlight the significant direction required for future research.
