  1. Hi, this looks great and we are keen to use it. Our wait lists are in Excel at the moment, can Bromcom support independent schools with a template for upload to populate the list initially, to save all the repeat data entry? Similar to the way we uploaded some of our data initially.

    1. Hi Nicola
      Thank you for your comments, I will check to see if this process is in development as its not currently possible.
      Kind Regards
      Bromcom Training
