  1. Hi which user permissions are required to access this? I have them all turned on and still cannot see “Registration Options”

    1. Good Afternoon Abdullah

      Go to Config – Set up – Roles and Permissions.
      Select the role, from the module drop down select Attendance.
      From within attendance you will see maintenance and within maintenance ‘registration options’
      Kind regards

  2. How do we get it to copy registration mark into second period of a double period so the teacher doesn’t have to call the register twice/copy marks across? Thank you.

    1. Hi Peter, This is not an option at the moment, though we will take your comment onboard.

  3. How do we configure the system to add an attendance mark for a double lesson – so it rolls the first lesson’s mark to the second lesson so a teacher does not have to take the register twice every week?
    This has been requested many times by teachers. Thanks

    1. Hi Tamzin, This is not an option at the moment, though we will take your comment onboard.

  4. Is it an option yet for the system to copy a registration mark into second period of a double period yet? We have had many requests from teachers for this and would save the issue of missed registers.

    1. Hi Lisa
      If you go to the top righthand corner on your Bromcom account, there is the My Account area, if you click and open My Account then scroll down the page you will see a Timetable section at the bottom. Here you can tick Split Registers and that will do what you need for double periods.
      Thanks

  5. I’ve just tried this so that teachers can’t overwrite attendance marks that the office staff have already input, but apparently this function is no longer available.

    Is there another way to set this up so that teachers can’t overwrite what we’ve input please?

    Thank you

    Liz

  6. Does bromcom have a feature where you can enter a reason for lateness which can then be included on a late report?

    1. Hi Natalie
      Thank you for your comments.
      When marking a student as late in the teacher register you can also click on the mark and click Comment.
      This can then be reported on in Reports>Attendance>Commented Attendance.
      Kind Regards
      Bromcom Training
