Take Register is the second option displayed once you have logged in. Note: if taking a detention register click View your & others timetable to take a detention register.

This when selected will display options to Take the Register for any Class, Tutor Group, Missing Registers, Fire Drill or Club for any other Teacher.

Once you have your selected Register type open, marking it will be the same for whichever option you selected.


Selecting the Class option will display a list of the Classes a green tick to the left will show the Class Register has been taken a red X will show it has not.

Tutor Group

Selecting the Tutor Group option will display a list of the Tutor Groups a green tick to the left will show the Register has been taken a red X will show it has not.

Missing Registers

Selecting the Missing Registers option will display a list of the Registers that have NOT yet been taken, all will have a red X to the left to show it has not been taken.

Fire Drill

Selecting the Fire Drill option will display a pop-up asking if you want to take a Tutor Group or Class.

A Fire Drill Register does not have a green tick or a red X to the left. Just click on the Register to be taken.

A Student who was marked Absent when the original Register was taken will show light red and will not have a box to add a Mark. A Student who was marked Present or Late will show green and will have a box to add a Mark. The top left of the Register shows the number of Students who were marked Present on the original Register and should now be marked Present on the Fire Register not the number in the Class/Tutor Group. Just click on the box to Mark the Student Present.

A saved Fire Drill will remain available until midnight of the day taken.


Selecting the Club option will display a list of the Clubs a green tick to the left will show the Register has been taken a red X will show it has not.

Taking a Register

The number of Students in the Register and how many have been marked will display top left, the Register Name and Room centre and the option to Set All of the Marks the same top right. Unmarked Students will display a yellow mark to the left of their Name. If there is any important information that you need to be made aware of, for instance Medical information [if added by your school] will display as a blue info icon, hold your finger over this to see the pop-up information.

Note: There may be other icons displaying alongside the Student depending on the User Defined Flags that your school may have setup.

To mark the Register tap on the first Student, a list of available Marks will be displayed with the Student Name at the top. Scroll up or down to select the required Mark and click on it, the empty circle to the right will now show green, selected. Click the Done button when finished or the Next button to move onto the next Student. To leave the panel at anytime click off the panel, this will now close and any entered Marks will be added to the Register. The Marks will NOT be Saved until you click Save top right.

If you select the Set All option ALL of the Marks added to the Register will be the same. Therefore if the whole Class is Present you will not have to mark them individually.


If a Student has a Detention a red D will be displayed on the Student row, click on the D for more information. If there is more than one Student with a Detention a Next button will be displayed so you can see all Detentions.

Student Record

Hold your finger over a Student to access their Student Details, what you will have access to will be dependent to your access permissions, click on the arrow to the right of each section to see more details.

  1. In the Teacher app – when not using the split register function (i.e 3 sessions back to back), the register loads and then crashes. Happening on all devices. No problems with internet or server.

    1. Hi Jo, thank you for your comment, if you call the Helpdesk they will be able to help you with this.

  2. Hi there
    We sign into Bromcom using our Microsoft accounts, and not by entering the School ID, username and password. Is there any way to use the mobile app?

    Many thanks

    1. Hi Melissa, in the app there is the option to scan the QR code rather than entering the school number etc to log in, you will find the QR code in the My Account area, log in to Bromcom as normal, go to My Account in the top right hand corner, and you can scroll down to find the QR Code. Thanks

  3. When taking a register using the app, can teachers see a pre populated mark, such as I, C or M? Are they able to easily over write these codes (even if protected) using the app? Also can they see any comments added?

    1. Hi Lorna, thank you for your question. Yes teachers can see prepopulated marks on the app. If they are protected marks it will not allow them to overwrite them on the app. They show with the mark and a padlock next to it and if you click on it, a message comes up saying it cannot be changed. It doesn’t show them any comments for attendance on the app. Thanks

  4. Why do students not show in the register for detentions in the app? The detentions have been set up and you can see the period or time, however when you click on the detention no students show? However if you lo into the timetable on a device (chromebook) you can see the students and do the register?

    1. Hi Nick
      Thank you for your comments.
      When opening the App choose View your and others timetable then the detentions assigned to you will be visible.
      I have update the guide
      Kind Regards
