I am making an app for a team which currently only includes attendance taking functionality. I am new to the android studio. I have absolutely no idea as to how to store the attendance data online and what options are available. The entire team should be able to see their attendance percentage. So the data needs to be stored online. I looked up on the net and found firebase as one option. Please tell the database options available and what do I need to learn to implement them in my app. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you

While Firebase is an option, you may want to keep the data on your own servers. In that case you'd create REST web services to access them.

Guess I forgot to mention that I don't want to buy a server and I am looking for free storage solutions.

You can have mysql for your database. PHP will be the third party for that.

Firebase has a free tier.

But isn't xampp a local server? How will everybody access it and my machine just can't run 24/7.

If you want online, try explore on 000webhost. It allows you to put PHP script inside and the database is MySQL.
