What is an online community?

The online community is a new informal space where Bromcom users can connect and share knowledge and best practices.

The community replaces the old support forum (, which had an outdated interface and was difficult to use. This help forum will be discontinued in June 2022.

The platform is provided by Bromcom, but operated by users. We know that where possible, schools prefer to seek help from other schools who use the software on a daily basis, rather than relying solely on the Bromcom Helpdesk.

There is a large and growing community of users with extensive knowledge on how to maximize Bromcom benefits for their schools. We want the platform to be a place where our users share this knowledge for the benefit of all.

Bromcom will also be an active member of the community by posting useful content including tips, key dates and top tips. And of course to find out how we can make the forum even more useful for our schools.

Registration and login

Anyone who signs up for Bromcom's technical support will receive an email with a link to join the platform. You must enter your email address and password. We are also considering configuring single sign-on during registration and future login options.
