I'm wondering if there is an app or widget you could suggest that would allow us to use forms for our participants to check-in. And these forms, if possible, would recognize and compile participant names t o save in one spreadsheet. I understand that may be a stretch...
We are a non-profit senior Center and for our funding grants we need to track activity and individual participation. I know this is not the intended use of the forms, but thought it may be worth asking if you knew of a way to get there with add-ons. We love the reporting/analysis option, it would save us a great deal of time for this use as well.

I am not exactly sure what are you trying to achieve.
I am not sure for what do you need check-in but, we have the Check In Check Out widget that you can check.
You can also use a basic Date Picker field to allow your users to check-in.
The form cannot recognize the user, but you can pre-populate your form with the users data and provide them a pre-populate link. You can create a separate pre-populate link for each of your users. This can be done with pre-populate app - http://prepopulate.jotform.io/
You can download your data as Excel, CSV or PDF:
It is also possible to integrate the form with Google Spreadsheet:
If I did not understand some part of your question correctly, please explain in more details what are you trying to achieve.
Let us know if you need further assistance.

Thank you, the date picker field will work, but I need to integrate on the backend with a database. I should have asked it that way, does Jotform integrate with any database? Currently we use Obvibase. We need more than just a spreadsheet.
