last significant update - 3rd September 2020
BRM 2.0 is now fully viable for most users of BRM.
Including GBAL which was the last major functional area to be migrated over.
BRM 1.0 will be switched off at the end of 2020.
(currently a little over 93% of users on 2.0)
First of all, it is worth noting that BRM2.0 has some fundamental characteristics that just make it a better platform:
- you can log in with any email (doesn't need to be google)
- it is fully responsive (fits whatever screen size)
- it is much more intuitive and beautiful (help built into each page)
- it doesn't use the spreadsheet anymore, so is much easier to get to grips with!
