I am designing a backend roster system. The administrator scans the users barcode and then records the time they checked in.
My question is which group of people should look disabled?
My thinking is that for a roster you might want to know more prominently who isn't here so they should be the ones highlighted. So when someone checks-in you don't have to worry about them anymore.
On the other hand you might think that one people are checked-in they are active.
What are your thoughts?
BTW: The color is not the only thing marking the users as checked-in, the timestamp becomes prominently displayed as well.
