How to Use Register Update Parameters

Note: All pages below are subject to having relevant Roles and Permissions.

The Register Update Parameters page can be used to configure your registers in Bromcom, for example, determining whether to allow Marks to be copied into previous (historic) Registers.

For example you can use this function if students do not have to attend a PM registration and you would like the attendance mark from a teaching period to be copied to the PM registration.

Note – there are a number of permutations to update your registers so if you are unsure, please contact the Bromcom Helpdesk.

From the left Menu go to Config > Attendance > Register Update Parameters 

Attendance Register Parameters 001

Set Parameters

First select the Single Date or Multiple Dates that the settings will become active from, the Register type and the Days of the Week it applies to.

Note: Ensure that you select Multiple Dates where needed otherwise the settings will revert the next day.
