I saw a similar feature request from July that was automatically closed so apologies if folks feel this is redundant but I wasn’t able to add input to the closed thread.
Would it be possible for the National Outdoor Awards (camping, hiking, aquatics, etc) to auto-populate with earned Merit Badges, miles logged, camping nights logged, etc?
I’m the Advancements Chair for my sons’ troop. I tried to run a report on National Outdoor Awards progress by Scout and it came up all 0%.
I then figured out that I would have to manually record/approve each of the requirements for all 22 Scouts one by one which would involve first running a report on rank, MBs earned, camping nights logged, miles logged, etc., etc. and only then being able to transfer that info manually into the 9 different award types (6 segments, 2 devices and 1 medal).
9 items to tabulate X 22 Scouts = 198 steps… Very tedious.
FYI, my hunch is that based on the troop’s yearly activities that many of our Scouts at First Class and higher are 75-90% of the way toward earning one or more NOA awards. Looking at the requirements a few have already earned the Camping NOA but we (leaders and Scouts) didn’t realize it.
Like most troops in our area we go camping 10-12x each year and most campouts involve activities like hiking, canoe/kayak/rafting, bike riding, climbing, etc.
Thanks in advance.
