Allow Scouts to input their own leadership

Leadership Positions page needs to allow Scouts to input positions started and stopped and have those approved by a leader. This would cut down on data entry required by adult volunteers and put more responsibility on the scout for tracking their details on the trail to Eagle.


I agree with this request/feedback. If we’re all drinking the Patrol Method Kool-Aid then, at the very least, it would be appropriate for either the SPL or ASPL scouts to do this work for their patrol. I can also see the benefit of allowing individual scouts to enter start and end dates, as previously mentioned, for themselves. If leadership roles are entered by individual scouts then of course, this should be approved by troop leadership (or the patrol SPL).

Just my 2 cents.


Agreed. Wonderful suggestion.

This is in the backlog. We do not know if or when the BSA will schedule it for development.
