Bromcom Go-Live Checklist

This guide provides a suggested list of areas to work through to set up your Bromcom system, once the live system has been handed to you.

This guide is most relevant to schools who have been migrated from a previous MIS – blank system set ups are not covered in this guide.

This list is not exhaustive and there is a longer list of configurations available under the Configuration Module.

Pre requisites:

  1. Training for the key areas you are trying to configure; and
  2. The correct permissions to make the changes.
