Provided Attended/Not Attended Counts

Description

I helped with checking people in at a WordCamp this weekend and multiple times, people asked where we stood on the number of attendees (total) and how many had checked in. As best I can tell, there's no way to access this information. I would recommend it be made available both in the backend and on the check-in interface.

The check-in filter menu has a natural place for this, where you could just add counts after Attending and Not Attending.

In the admin, this feels most like an attendee post status. Could "Published" be renamed to "Registered" and then "Attended" made its own post status? I know the post status API is kind of awful, so this may not be a good idea, but it feels the most "core-y" way to implement it.

From within wp-admin, you can see how many people have registered, and how many have checked in, via Tickets > Tools > Summarize, by selecting Ticket Type and Attended the Event, respectively. You can get a total number of tickets sold by looking at Tickets > Attendees, and seeing how many are Published (which is the same as "registered").

I posted on make/Community to see what the team thinks about the rest.

Totally missed the Tickets > Tools > Summarize feature. That does work, though I'd add that not all the volunteers checking people in had access to the backend of the site.
